October 26, 2020 – The TRU has determined that Stage 4 of the USA Rugby Return To Play protocol applies to the entire union, putting Texas and Louisiana at the same level as Arkansas and Oklahoma. We are aware that case rates are rising in some counties, but at the same time government restrictions have relaxed and many sports have resumed activities. The TRU fully supports any members that choose not to increase their rugby activity at this stage.
Group size under local government & facility approved amount
Face masks required for coaches & admins; highly encouraged for players
