Players wearing gloves – the latest guidance from the RFU
Having had numerous queries on players wearing gloves, our previously communicated position was that gloves should not be worn. However, we understand that players may wish to wear them during the cold weather. Our advice is that they are changed for a different pair at least every 15 minutes. Players that wear gloves cannot effectively sanitise the surface of the gloves, increasing the risk of infection and transmission. The key way to reduce the risk of infection and transmission during rugby activity is through regular sanitising of hands.
