Player Dispensations

Rugby Australia is committed to providing rugby opportunities for all participants that are safe, inclusive and fair.

The safety of all participants must be the primary consideration in all participation decisions. The Rugby Australia Safety Policy details the commitment to this.
Rugby Australia Safety Policy

While rugby is considered a game for all, every effort must be made for rugby participants with broadly compatible physical development, in conjunction with ability and/or experience, to play with and against each other. The Rugby Australia Participation Policy details the starting position for creating such participation environments, and the accompanying Dispensation Procedures provide the detail in the process.

Each of the below Dispensation pages provides you with detail on the processes and procedures in creating safe, inclusive and fair participation environments.
