Railway Union RFC retains insurance cover for players under the IRFU Player Insurance Scheme.
This scheme covers club players for catastrophic injury only e.g. loss of limb, permanent disablement, etc. The policy does not cover loss of earnings, medical expenses, accident and emergency visits or dental repair. It is the duty of all players or parents/guardians of players to consider and investigate their insurance options.
Railway recommends that players are covered by medical insurance from a recognised private medical insurer.
Whilst the club provides a strong and active player welfare committee, this does not extend to financial support for medical bills. Rugby is a collision sport and regrettably injuries can occur.
Supplementary insurance cover is available through the IRFU’s broker, AON Insurance (01 2666400), or contact your own broker / insurance company for details of additional cover. Should a player or parent/guardian of a player wish to take out this cover, this will be a separate arrangement between the player and the provider and Railway will be an independent party.
