Update from Devon RFU chairman Geoff Simpson
SINCE my last statement on the Covid-19 pandemic the scale of the RFU cutbacks has become clearer and it is now clear that we will have a much reduced RFU field force to help deliver rugby in the county.
The revised support structure has been published but the process of filling the new posts is still ongoing at Twickenham.
Out of the usual and essential considerations of personal confidentiality it is inappropriate to discuss individual situations until that process is completed.
However, Devon RFU would like to place on record its unqualified gratitude to all those who have been employed by the RFU to the benefit of the game in Devon in recent years and deeply regrets that any one of them should be lost due to the current circumstances. Our very best wishes go to all of them.
The RFU's plan for the future structure of the Rugby Development Department can be found HERE.
Geoff Simpson, Chair, Devon RFU.
