'Return to rugby' phase B to start on Monday

Gatherings of 30 players to now be permitted

Rugby in the Isle of Man is preparing to move to phase B of the 'return to rugby' road map.

That's due to happen on Monday next week (15 June) and will see a number of changes to what's been in place during the first phase.

Thirty players will now be allowed at a single session - up from the ten permitted so far - and equipment such as balls can now be shared, although they must be disinfected before and after every session.

Clubhouses can now open to serve takeaway food and drink, having only been allowed to be open for access to toilets so far.
