Ebbw Vale v Llanelli rescheduled as mark of respect following death of Her Majesty The Queen

Saturday’s Indigo Premiership match against Ebbw Vale has been postponed as a mark of respect following the passing of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.

A statement from the Welsh Rugby Union said: “The Welsh Rugby Union is suspending all senior rugby matches in Wales this weekend as a mark of respect to the passing of Her Majesty The Queen.  The suspension applies to all senior rugby scheduled to take place this weekend (10th/11th September).

“The WRU is also fully supportive of decisions already taken by professional sides in Wales to cancel scheduled friendly fixtures.  Mini, junior and U18 matches already in place this weekend do have permission to go ahead to avoid disruption to children and families, but clubs are requested to observe a period of two minutes’ silence before all matches.

“Further decisions about when to return to play will be taken next week in accordance with Royal protocol.”

Our thoughts at Llanelli RFC are with the Royal Family at this sad time.
