NLD U13 Sevens CANCELLED

May 5th, 2016 by

It is with much regret that we tell you that we have made the difficult decision to cancel this Sunday’s NLD U13 Sevens Festival due to take place at Derby RFC.

Unfortunately the pitches have dried out too much with the current good weather and with the forecast set to be good through the weekend they will only become harder and are therefore unplayable in the interests of player safety.

This is a decision that has not been taken easily and we have looked at alternatives but unfortunately this is the best thing to do in the interests of player safety.

We will not be rescheduling as pitches are only going to get harder from here and clubs also have their pitch maintenance plans in action.

The U15’s Sevens at Market Rasen are still scheduled to go ahead.  The pitches were trained on last night and were fine, they will be monitored through the next couple of days as well.

Concussion Awareness

November 11th, 2015 by

Following a recently reported incident, NLD would like to re-emphasise the importance of following the RFU Headcase Protocols for a Graduated Return to Play after a suspected concussion. We recommend that this decision should not be left to the player alone to decide but is the joint responsibility of the Medical Professional, the coach, the player’s club or school, the player and the player’s parents if still under 19 on 1st September.

We would also recommend that all persons who have anything to do with selecting and putting a team on the pitch become familiar with the RFU Graduated Return to Play protocols by accessing and completing the RFU online Headcase course. This course is a free course and can be found here.

A copy of the Graduated Return to Play Protocols can also be found here and there is lots of information available on the RFU website.

The rugby is intense, with matches played all weekend against some of the toughest teams in the country! With hundreds of players from the women’s and men’s game coming together to celebrate the sport we all love, the party goes from Friday to Sunday.

Teams are encouraged to embrace the spirit of the tournament and arrive on the Friday for drinks and take advantage of the camping facilities for both the Friday and Saturday night. Once the rugby is over for the day the campsite and the marquee become the focus for the warm down. Fancy dress is compulsory and flash photography is prohibited!

Nottingham Casuals RFC look forward to welcoming rivals old and new to Beeston again this summer!
