NZR’S THREE STAGES OF PREPARATION (DATES SUBJECT TO CHANGE)
Phase 1 Prepare to Train From 14 – 25 May
Rugby clubs work with their Provincial Unions to put procedures in place to ensure all necessary requirements can be met. These include hygiene protocols for people, venues and facilities, requirements for gatherings and contract tracing. No organised rugby training or match activity will occur during this phase.
Phase 2 Prepare to Play (dates to be confirmed, subject to Government advice)
Teams begin pre-season training (including contact training) within NZR’s guidelines and recommendations. This is expected to be a four-week period from 25 May but will be confirmed following confirmation of the government’s requirements for gatherings. Pre-season matches may be played in the final week prior to Phase 3.
NZR recommends Sporty’s iDMe online contract tracing system.
Phase 3 Play (dates to be confirmed, subject to Government advice)
If restrictions on mass gatherings are increased from 25 May, competition fixtures can begin from 20 June.
