Respect For Rugby

PLAYERS & SPECTATORS REPRESENT THE CLUB & MUST BEHAVE IN AN APPROPRIATE MANNER

It is essential that members realise they represent the Club at all times.  Behaviour as players or spectators must match the philosophy of the Club & the Rugby Football Union towards Rugby.

It must be accepted without qualification that:-

They must not talk back to the referee and must accept all decisions as final.

They will control their language.

They will treat the opposition with respect and tunnel them off the pitch.

Leave the game on the pitch and socialise with opponents post-match.

If you are substitutes, remain off the pitch unless delivering water. Do not crowd the touchline. If you wish to warm up, do it at the end of the pitch and ensure balls remain off the playing field.

SUPPORTERS ARE PART OF WRFC

Respect any official or opposition player or coach.

Positively encourage players to act in an appropriate manner.

Control your language.

Never enter the field of play, officials deal with incidents.

COACHES ARE AMBASSADORS OF WRFC

You should know what is expected & encourage the correct attitude.

PLAYERS, PARENTS & SPECTATORS MUST OBSERVE ALL THE ABOVE AT ALL TIMES.
