“....... to ensure that all people , irrespective of their age, gender, ability, race, religion, ethnic origin, creed, colour, nationality, social status or sexual orientation, have a genuine and equal opportunity to participate in rugby union at all levels and in all roles.
That includes participation as a beginner or elite performer, and as a coach, official, referee, manager, administrator or spectator”.

All Club Members have a responsibility to oppose discriminatory behaviour and promote equality of opportunity.
The Club will view any transgression of this policy in a very serious light and will deal with incidents of unacceptable behaviour in terms of the Club`s disciplinary procedures or other relevant provisions/processes.
