Following government advice, the RFU will suspend all rugby activity in England, at both professional and community level.

Rugby activity includes club training, league and cup matches plus rugby education courses from 17 March until 14 April subject to continued review.

The decision has been taken following government advice in the interests of players, coaches, referees, volunteers, supporters and the wider rugby union community.  

Where possible, players at all levels are encouraged to maintain their own personal fitness and keep active during this time, while following government guidelines about safe distance and safe exercise environments.

The RFU will continue to review and monitor government advice and will provide detailed updates on the impact to the season in the coming weeks. 

That could be it for the season. If it is Pocklington certainly finished the 2019-20 campaign on a high at all levels. The 1st XV's last gasp 33-28 win at Cleckheaton took them into seventh in the North 1 East table. The Pilgrims had a big 63-12 win at home to Scunthorpe to cement their top place in the East Yorkshire Merit Table. On Sunday Pocklington Colts saw their best result of the season as they beat local rivals York 43-19 in the Yorkshire Cup and the U15s had a 30-8 success over Goole in a spirited encounter.
