August 21st - Latest Email from Subbies...

Subject: 2020 Finals Series
Just a quick note re the 2020 Finals Series.
Due to covid we obviously can’t run our finals series as we normally would, nor as we would like.
Details are still being worked on but some things to note and consider below.
At this stage:
Attendees at finals series matches will be limited.
Participating teams will get an allocation of tickets.
Beyond that allocation no one else will be admitted.
Please let your supporters know.
As all matches will need to be played at gated and enclosed venues (which are in short supply) we are looking at:
Some matches needing to be played on Sunday, or Friday evening.
Some matches may need to be played considerably earlier or later than usual on the Saturday.
We will need to be flexible and changes to the schedule may be possible, if desired, depending on the makeup of the final four in any particular competition.
We’ll be getting schedules and finals info out ASAP. In the meantime, happy to have your feedback.
Finally, remember any player registered after Sat 29 Aug (Sat 5 Sep for Div 1) shall not be eligible to play in the finals series.
August 19th - Email from Subbies...
From: Tim Richards of NSW Rugby
Date: Wed, 19 Aug 2020, 7:45 pm
Subject: COVID UPDATE – WED 19 AUG
Most would be aware of the latest high level recommendations by NSW Health in relation to Community Sport.
NSW Suburban Rugby is pleased to confirm community rugby will continue this weekend as planned.
The NSW Health recommendations will mean some changes occur, however the covid safety plans already adopted by rugby, and rugby clubs, will allow for regular fixtures to continue.
NSW Rugby, together with other major sporting codes, welcomes NSW Health’s common sense approach that will allow each State Sporting Organisation to tailor their implementation of the recommendations while allowing community sport to continue.
Please see attached and below the recommendations that will be implemented with additional details to come in the following days.
For Subbies Clubs:
Actively discourage all spectators attending your matches. SPREAD THE WORD. A true “supporter” should not be jeopardising their club and the competition by attending a Subbies match as a spectator.
PARTICIPANTS ONLY – and even then it is, “get in, play, get out”. Only reserves and volunteers may remain at the venue after their game.
Cease face-to-face social activities such as post-match or post-training events.
Avoid carpools and cease all club organised away bus trips.
Utilize NSW Rugby TV on Cluch to livestream your games so that spectators can still watch from home. Contact Gus Seebeck from Cluch: firstname.lastname@example.org 0488 019 881
Good luck. Stay safe.
August 5th - Directives from Subbies...
Effective immediately, regardless of what your Safety Plan and your Council requires, all Suburban Rugby Clubs must now follow these NEW DIRECTIVES:
Clubs that play on a fenced oval (i.e. a cricket ground) will be required to prohibit spectators from entering the oval. Only reserves and team/match officials - NO ONE ELSE – will be allowed on the sideline, and all must be properly spaced.
At all other venues, home clubs will be required to designate the two sidelines as Home and Away and ensure both clubs – players, volunteers, medical personnel, spectators – keep to their respective sides, again all properly spaced. (If only one sideline is available there must be a clear and obvious distance between the two Clubs AND social distancing spaces must be maintained and enforced.)
All clubs are to proactively patrol their sidelines throughout the day and enforce social distancing. For bigger clubs this will require more than one person and so extra Covid safety volunteers will need to be in place to make sure these directives are being carried out.
All clubs are to direct their players to “get in, play, get out”. Only reserves and volunteers may remain at the venue after their game. Players are not to be spectators. Clubs should reconsider the necessity of any planned away game bus trips.
Clubs should use social media and communications with supporters to discourage attendance at matches.
NSW Rugby TV on Cluch can provide livestreams of your games so that supporters can watch remotely. There is a cost, but clubs should consider NSW Rugby TV as another possible tool in their Covid Safety Plan. Contact Gus Seebeck from Cluch: email@example.com 0488 019 881
Please again make sure your club officials are familiar with your Covid Safety Plan and the above new directives.
The above is IN ADDITION to the existing training and game day protocols:
Change rooms, where possible, are not be used for pre or post-match team gatherings or team talks
All teams should have as part of their team kit a supply of disinfectant wipes.
The sharing of water bottles is prohibited. Players are to provide their own clearly marked water bottles so that it is easily identifiable to all.
Dirty jerseys not be shared between players. Ensure adequate clean jerseys for each starting lineup and eight reserves/team.
Don’t leave playing equipment and team apparel lying around. Clean it. Store it.
Your physios should be across this, but physio tables, medical areas are to be thoroughly cleaned between “patients”.
At the conclusion of the match, teams must vacate the playing area and remove any equipment, apparel and used tape from the area.
Clubs who can run a canteen with council approval, must maintain and enforce the social distancing rules for those waiting for service.
July 1st - Health orders from Subbies...
GATHERING LIMITS FOR SUBBIES CLUBS INCREASED TO 500 PEOPLE
FULL CONTACT TRAINING & MATCHES NOW ALLOWED
A new Public Health Order was issued last night affecting Subbies Rugby with immediate effect.
As always, YOU MUST LIAISE AND PLAN WITH YOUR COUNCIL, but in summary:
Each club must develop and comply with a COVID-19 Safety Plan. (You should have already done this, but may now need amending.)
Limits for training and match days is now 500 people. This includes EVERYONE – players, coaches, managers, medical, committee, volunteers and spectators.
Full contact training and matches are allowed.
All training equipment is allowed.
We are advised that clubs are not required to collect people’s contact details – particularly if they are entering your canteen or clubhouse solely for the purpose of collecting food or drink to consume outside. CHECK WITH YOUR COUNCIL.
Clubs are still required, as previously advised, to get ALL MEMBERS of your club to register themselves via the Fusesport Rugby App – Players, Coaches, Managers, Physios, Canteen workers, Committee, Volunteers, etc
BBs/supporters should also register with Fusesport and instructions are here.
Even if you already have the App, please use the "Register" option to enter your name as a supporter.
