Our Rugby Safe lead is Dr Andy Hilary
Recent changes regarding the roles and responsibilities within the governance of rugby have emphasised the role of RugbySafe within the structure of the community game which has stipulated the creation of the Rugby Safe representative on CRFU who, in turn, will liaise and support club Rugby Safe leads.
The concept of Rugby Safe is that it is basically an umbrella role that oversees and encompasses various roles already in place, but in a coherent and cohesive manner. As a result, the previously named golden role “Medical Officer” on GMS has now been renamed “Rugby Safe Lead”, this is to align with and increase awareness of the RugbySafe campaign and reflect the wider player welfare remit that is evolving in the game and clubs may want to consider. All clubs must now have a Rugby Safe point of contact.
