Code of Conduct for Spectators

Remember that although young people

play organised rugby they are not ‘miniature
internationals’.

Be on your best behaviour and lead by
example. Do not use profane language or
harass referees, players or coaches.

Applaud good play by the visiting team as
well as your own.

Show respect for your team’s opponents.
Without them there would not be a match.

Condemn the use of violence in all forms at
every opportunity

Verbal abuse of players or referees cannot
be accepted in any shape of form.

Players or referees are not fair targets for
ignorant behaviour.

Encourage young players to play by the
Laws of the Game.
Spectators can contribute to the enjoyment
of the event and all involved.

Be proud of your club and the Game
of Rugby
