Code of Conduct

Downs Rugby has developed a Code of Conduct to be applied for all levels of Rugby played anywhere on the Darling Downs. Adherance to the Code is taken very seriously as it defines how the game is to be played. Not to be taken lightly, in many cases the Code of Conduct sets us apart from other sports. Downs Rugby will take a dim view on conduct contrary to the Code and subsequent action will be taken in accordance with the Competition Rules. Our code of conduct is aimed to compliment the ARU Code of Conduct, setting the standards for Rugby across the nation.

Please find both available for download below;

Clubs are encouraged to adopt the Code for their own Club purposes.
