Rules of Competition

The Saskatchewan Rugby Rules of Competition exist to provide structure and consistency to rugby competition in the province while ensuring fair play, safety, and enjoyment for all participants. The Rules of Competition cover all aspects of organized league play from club & player eligibility to game results and playoff qualification.

The Rules of Competition policy is approved by the Saskatchewan Rugby Board of Directors on the advice of the Rules of Competition Committee, which features representatives from the Regina Rugby Union, North Saskatchewan Rugby Union, and Saskatchewan Rugby Referees Society.

See below for the full Rules of Competition Policy and links relevant to the specific regulations within the Rules of Competition.
