Rugby Football Union to introduce in-season breaks for players


The next three English domestic rugby union seasons will include in-season breaks, with players limited to a maximum of 35 matches per campaign.

The measures, beginning 2019-20, are designed to protect players during a demanding schedule that includes the 2019 World Cup and 2021 British and Irish Lions tour of South Africa.

The domestic season has, however, been extended, with 2019-20 starting on 21 September and ending on 20 June, with a “mandatory five-week post-season rest” period also brought in.
