This weekend ahead of the Guinness PRO14 restart games two occurrences will precede the kick-off. At each game, a moment’s silence will be observed to mark the loss of life suffered during the Covid-19 pandemic and to honour those who have worked on the frontline to protect us.

After this, a ‘Unity Moment’ will be observed to demonstrate that rugby stands united against racism and to emphasise rugby’s core values of solidarity and respect. Players will stand in a circular formation and during this time they are free to express themselves in a manner they deem appropriate.

This Unity Moment will underline the message of Rugby Against Racism across the territories that encompass the Guinness PRO14.
