Bristol Bisons Send England RFU A Message: Rugby For All

Since 2005, the Bristol Bisons have guaranteed a safe place for those wanting to play rugby in the South West. This has gone on to lead to several more IGR (Inclusive Gay Rugby) Teams joining us in the South West, and we could not be prouder of what we stand for together.

“Rugby is a game for all. Rugby really is a game for all shapes and sizes and all kinds of player”

– The England Rugby Football Union

This is how England Rugby Football Union (RFU) describes our sport.

This is how England RFU describes the sport while in consultation to restrict access to Trans* Women.

This is how England RFU describes the sport while deeming Trans* Women above 170cm a ‘safety concern’.

This is how England RFU describes the sport while deeming Trans* Women over 90kg a ‘safety concern’.

This is how England RFU describes the sport while deeming Trans* Women a ‘safety concern’ within dimensions frequently exceeded by cis women playing rugby.

This is how England RFU describes the sport while players of all shapes, sizes and genders contest the motion, to truly keep rugby a sport for all players.Bristol Bisons truly believe that rugby for all, and that rules proposed discriminating against trans* and non-binary people have no place in the game.

Since 2005, the Bristol Bisons have guaranteed a safe place for those wanting to play rugby in the South West. Today is no different.

“As a club, we implore England RFU to consider again their proposed changes”
