  • If any club or individual breaches rules, they will gift opponents a 20-0 win
  • Matches will be declared draws if cancelled by government or local authorities 

Premiership rugby players will be warned about the need to follow coronavirus guidelines strictly when the season resumes this weekend – or risk handing rivals bonus-point wins.

If any club’s participation is prohibited by Government or local authority restrictions, cancelled matches will be declared draws. 

But if any club – or individuals within a club – are deemed to have breached coronavirus guidelines, they will gift opponents a 20-0 victory.

The domestic game will finally return on Friday when Harlequins host Sale to relaunch the disrupted 2019-20 campaign. 

The onus will be on players and staff to stick to the protocols, especially those playing away from home when group transport and accommodation are needed.

Sale director of rugby, Steve Diamond, revealed that they will travel in two ‘VVIP’ coaches and have hired pool and ping pong tables to combat boredom.
