Accies coach is already looking towards next season

OMAGH Accies head coach, Glenn Kyle has started preparing for the 2021/22 Energia All Ireland League campaign after the IRFU confirmed this season will not proceed.

The sport’s governing body released a statement at the end of last week confirming that the 2020/21 campaign for men and women would ‘not proceed, due to the on-going impact of Covid-19’.

It also said that they ‘and the four provinces will now work with clubs to look at the completion of the Engeria Community Series and to review alternative forms of rugby, such as Lucozade Sport Touch and Volkswagen Tag, which may provide players with much sought after rugby later in the year’.

Kyle believes the chances of the Community Series – which Dungannon RFC are also competing in – being concluded are practically nil and because of that he is concentrating on next season.
