BRFC TERMS AND CONDITIONS
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY & INDEMNITY: BRFC accepts no liability for any damage, loss, illness or injuries resulting from participation at BRFC howsoever that may have been caused, save for death or personal injury caused by BRFC’s own negligence.

INSURANCE: Whilst coaching and matches are supervised to minimise the risk of injury, rugby is a physical contact game.
