RFL response to new Transgender Inclusion in Domestic Sport Guidance

RFL Logo

The Rugby Football League welcome the Transgender Inclusion in Domestic Sport Guidance which has today been launched by UK Sport, Sport England, Sport Wales, sportscotland and SportNI. 

The new guidance will be considered by the RFL’s Inclusion Board, as the sport continues to stress the importance of being available to all, and also the safety of all participants.

Dave Rotheram, the RFL’s Chief On-Field Officer, said: “This is a very important topic for all sports and has implications for Rugby League at all levels, so we will study this latest guidance carefully, especially given the quantity and range of data that was considered.

“There are significant points made in the Guiding Principles about the importance of ensuring fairness and prioritising player safety, and also the difficulty and sensitivity of these issues.

“We are committed to making Rugby League as inclusive as possible, while also remaining mindful of the importance of fairness to, and the safety of, all participants.”
