Of course if you kick the players out of the system they don't obtain the benefit of the workshops, so how does society get the full benefit of this initiative?


Rugby players to be given 'sexual relationships' classes



The subject will be part of Rugby Players Ireland's (RPI) wellbeing workshops for players
Rugby players are to be given "sexual health and relationships," classes by the body which represents professional players, The Times has reported.

The subject will be part of Rugby Players Ireland's (RPI) wellbeing workshops for players.

The classes, which aim to promote "healthy behavioural attitudes," follow a high-profile rugby rape trial.

Ireland and Ulster Rugby players Paddy Jackson and Stuart Olding were both acquitted of all charges.

'Integrity, inclusivity and respect'
However the wider issues raised by the case, and in particular the players' message exchanges - containing explicit sexual terms about women - have prompted intense debate.

Mr Olding and Mr Jackson had their contracts terminated earlier this month after a review by the Irish Rugby Football Union and Ulster Rugby.

The IRFU/Ulster Rugby also said that Ulster and Ireland winger Craig Gilroy has been sanctioned over a text message he sent to Stuart Olding.

RPI said their Player Wellbeing Programme which focuses on "off-field development" was being developed "in light of recent events".

The organisation said this was "to ensure that our values of integrity, inclusivity and respect, integral to the game of rugby, are understood by all our players and reflected in their behaviour on and off the pitch".

'Healthy behavioural attitudes'
The programme is being developed in conjunction with the IRFU and provincial management teams.

Dr Ella McCabe, a Senior Clinical Psychologist is facilitating the workshops designed to educate the players on "healthy behavioural attitudes".

The RPI said the content of its programme is "reviewed on an annual basis to ensure that it continues to evolve in line with current trends".

"We have invested more resources in this area, including broadening the curriculum delivered to players through individual consultations, group workshops and the provision of educational material so that all players receive the support they need in their daily lives, while also preparing them for their transition from the game," it added.

Great stuff.

With the benefit of hindsight, I think I probably showed too much respect whilst in my prime.

Still, je ne regrette rien I suppose.

Can the married players opt out or only if they dont follow the example of the CiC?

What about the ones who haven't missed church for the duration of their contracts, or as they like to call themselves... Ulster rugby legends?

At times like this I wonder what Bestie would tell them (George not Rory)

I suspect part of the training to cover that consensual spit roasting is a sackable offence..

Will it include lessons and a quiz -- like where's Wally -- "spot the groupie " -

always lock your bed room
door so that a female can't confirm everything is consensual

Never have parties with equal
numbers men and woman .

Always inform any woman you in pocket pay is only £
60 a week everything else is invested by the IRFU for your old age .

Every step in your relationship must prefaced with the words " May I ?
"
and her consent should be in writing preferably witnessed by Her Father .

Are threesomes ok as long as it's two girls and a boy?

Are threesomes ok as long as only 1 professional rugby player is involved?

Do threesomes exhibit geographical differences e.g. one performed in Leinster involving 2 males from Munster?

Can consent be obtained in the presence of the uncle if daddy is neglecting me?

Join us for a brilliant night of food, fun and hearing from Ulster Rugby Legend Charles Piutau + CEO Shane Logan. We’ll enjoy a cracker Sports Table Quiz, feast on some fine food, and be inspired by the rugby experiences and life stories of these two Ulster Rugby legends! Invite your friends and colleagues for what will be a night to remember! And please remember, it’s MEN only! (sorry ladies!)

What a fecking ballroot. How is Logan an Ulster rugby legend? And Piutau, aye he could have been, if he hadn't gone missing like the rest of them. Ulster rugby legends are Humphreys, Pienaar, Steinmetz, Trimble, Ferris, Muller. (modern era obviously).

No ladies, aye they should be home doing the dishes.
