RFU regulations on wearing of tights/leggings

All members are asked to ensure that they are fully aware of the following regulations as regards the wearing of tights by women and age grade players:


Women may wear cotton blend long tights, with single inside leg seam under their shorts and socks.

Age grade players are permitted to wear base layers (including both long and short sleeve tops and full length tights) provided they comply with the World Rugby Regulatory requirements set out in World Rugby Regulation 12 and Law 4, which are available on www.worldrugby.org.
