Back in action.
Rugby and other sports are set to receive a boost tomorrow as crowds will be allowed to return as part of the Government’s new medium-term Covid-19 plan, according to RTE Sport.
The framework will set out five levels of the virus and related restrictions that will apply across the country for the next six to nine months.
A document will reportedly allow for the return of spectators to sporting events, with 500 allowed at club level and 5,000 for larger venues likes Croke Park and the Aviva Stadium.
What this means for small to medium-sized venues like Thomond Park and the Sportsground remains to be seen but it’s good new for Ireland’s Six Nations fixture against Italy next month and their Autumn Nations fixtures in November and December.
We’re slowly getting back to normal. Thank f*ck for that.
