Respect Rugby 

In 2013, NSWRU Chairman, Nick Farr-Jones introduced the “Respect Rugby” program which in association with the “Play by the Rules” a government initiative to help make sport inclusive, safe and fair, has been created to be proactive to help us maintain these mighty traditions of our game that we can sometimes take for granted.

“Rugby Union is a game steeped in tradition and is renowned for its respectfulness and consideration towards all participants. However, with this tradition comes a great responsibility; a responsibility to maintain the respect towards all that participate and contribute to making our game great.  The program is designed as a best practice model and to be used as an information resource and guideline for all”-- Nick Far-Jones (pictured below).
