As the season gathers momentum in terms of the number of matches being played right across the club, I believe it is an appropriate time to remind all club members of the club’s commitment to the RFU Code of Rugby
In particular please ensure that at all times utmost respect is shown towards referees and all match officials, who not unlike ourselves are out there on a Saturday or Sunday to primarily enjoy the involvement in taking part in a game of rugby.
Again like the rest of us, from time to time they might make the occasional mistake or a decision which you might not agree with. Errors will happen and we have to accept that. What cannot be accepted at all is any abuse of match officials.
As you will see from the attached Dorset & Wilts RFU letter (see below) this is an issue that is causing considerable concern.
We are a club who pride ourselves on our rugby, our spirit and traditions of the game.
Please ensure that at all times you observe such etiquette, both on the pitch and along the touch line accordingly.
