02 Touch is back !!!

O2 Touch resumes at Priestfield’s, Rochester ON SATURDAY 3rd April 2021 as part of Medway Rugby Club’s “Return to Rugby” kick off – 12.30pm.
O2 Touch – The basics;
• 6 players on each team.
• The attacking side has 6 chances to score before the ball is turned over to the defensive team.
• The attacking side must pass the ball backwards and scores by placing the ball over the try line.
• To stop the attacking side, a defender has to touch the player with the ball. Once a touch has been made, the attacking team performs a ‘roll ball’ (placing the ball between their legs) and the entire defence must retreat 5m.
• After 6 touches, or if the attacking team drops the ball at any point, the ball is turned over to the other team.
£1 for per session (in the Hat)… £5 one off membership payment (for non-members).
Please come along with your team of x6 players. Don’t worry if you don’t have a team, just pitch up.
In line with the RFU return to play stage “D1” we will follow the guidance offered (tbc) & “Boom” off we go playing Rugby again…fabulous!
There will be sanitizing, equipment cleaning, recording & guidance followed among other controls to help keep us safe.
Afterwards the Rugby Clubhouse will be open for takeaway food & drink (no Alcohol until mid April)…Planning on x4 consecutive April 2021 Saturdays of o2 Touch! Then maybe more…
See you there…please share…C’mon Medway!

Medway needs you!!!

As you may know, a mass vaccination site is due to open in Medway. They need volunteers to help with the running;- this is where you can help. If you are over 18 and a have few hours to spare then you can help. Please see the details below and attached.

One of the criteria for the implementation of the various stages of the road map out of lock down, is the successful role out of the vaccine. The sooner it gets done the sooner we can get back to playing rugby. You can make a positive contribution!

Please volunteer by letting Andy Watts below have your contact details, availability etc so he will pass them on to the NHS coordinator. The attached pdf has the specific still slots requiring volunteers.
