Is Rugby back?
It seems unfair that we see lots of other sports coming back to a certain level of normality - yet we are still waiting to find out when Professional Rugby is to return, as well as community Rugby after Coronavirus has changed the world we live in.
In recent weeks - the BBC has published 'How rugby union may have to adapt after coronavirus' and as the days pass and the restrictions ease, we move closer to the day we know what is going to happen.
However, there have been guidelines that have been produced by the governing bodies of the home nation rugby unions to give us fans and players an idea of what to do when returning to watching/playing rugby.
England Rugby Coronavirus Guidelines:- Return to Rugby Roadmap
Wales Rugby Coronavirus Guidelines:- Community Rugby Roadmap
Ireland Rugby Coronavirus Guidelines:- Return to Rugby for clubs
Scotland Rugby Coronavirus Guidelines:- Return to Rugby - Clubs and Schools
What I think we can all agree on is, once it is safe to do so, there is a lot to look forward to when rugby returns to us.

**********ADDITIONAL INFORMATION - ADDED 17:01 15TH JULY **********
Although we published this post at 15:32 on 15th July - it would seem almost simultaneously that the RFU published some more information on Rugby's Return in England.

The main takeaway from the article is, pending restrictions are eased sufficiently, we should see community rugby return around the 5th September 2020.
