WRFU - COUNTY RUGBY SAFE OFFICER
There is a need to appoint a person to the above volunteer role within the county. The successful candidate would oversee the duties of pitch side safety for all county representative sides. The rugby safe officer would ensure that those people providing pitch side duties and immediate care were properly trained and held the correct qualifications.
The rugby safe officer would keep a register of those people providing immediate care and also handle a budget for training to ensure correctly qualified people were available to provide this care.
The position does not require previous or current experience in immediate care but an enthusiasm to provide proper care for the participants in county rugby. Contact Charlie McGinty for further information/interest - 07801 869730

So far this season we have reach 15 incidents, including several quite serious ones involving the Police. The RFU are aware of these figures and are concerned, as WRFU are,about rugby in Warwickshire.
If you feel you need support from the Warwickshire Discipline panel coming along to your club to talk to your players then please let me know. Also a reminder that if you have a red card issued please text or email me within the 48 hour time period and let me know.
