In rugby we are fortunate that there is a long tradition and culture of respect that is rooted in our game. We do not take for granted the pivotal role of match officials and volunteers in helping our sport to run smoothly and it is imperative that these individuals are treated with the utmost respect.
That culture of respect should exist on our sidelines, between our players and volunteers and amongst supporters.
With this in mind, representatives of the IRFU, FAI and the GAA have pledged to work together on this important topic over the coming year.
This initiative has the chance to impact many people and highlight the important role that sport can play in people’s lives when conducted in a positive manner.
🟥 Let’s treat ALL our players, volunteers, referees, members and visitors with Respect not just this weekend but every weekend!
