Training has also restarted at Lochaber Rugby Club, albeit with coronavirus restrictions in place.
Only touch rugby and non-contact training is allowed at the club’s Banavie ground moment, but as head coach Gary Hendrie says, it is better than nothing after five months of lockdown.
‘It’s better than sitting about doing nothing.Youth rugby has started up and one age group from the minis is starting up this week, with the youngest group starting in a week or two,’ Hendrie explained.
‘Numbers have been good across the board but we are having to have ‘bubble’s with set numbers in each bubble, requiring pitches to be carved up into sections.
‘We need to move to the next stage in the SRU planning before we can start contact training then hopefully some fixtures.
‘We had planned trying to get a ladies team up and running before lockdown so hopefully we can try again once we are a bit more used to the current restrictions.’
The club has also made a ‘coming back to rugby’ video to let everyone coming back what to do and what to expect when signing in.
