Goggles: In the 2013-14 and 2014-15 season, the RFU introduced a trial in England that would enable the wearing of certain sport goggles by players playing contact rugby at the Under 13 age grade and below, if certain conditions were satisfied.

This trial was a variation of the RFU’s current regulations which prohibits all types of goggles to be worn in contact rugby. In the 2014-15 season the trial was further extended to permit U14s and above to wear sports goggles in exceptional circumstances if certain additional conditions are satisfied.

The trial will continue for the 2015-2016 season and players shall be entitled to participate in the trial if certain conditions are met. For more information on the goggles trial please see link here
