In the case of inclement weather, updates will be provided whenever possible regarding event delays or cancellations. If inclement weather occurs during an event, it is subject to delay.

NOLA GOLD Rugby pays close attention to the weather leading up to event time and makes every effort to keep the field ready for play. Unless the weather prior to game time is particularly severe or the forecast reveals that inclement weather is inevitable, team officials will plan to play the game as scheduled unless otherwise noted.
If an event delay is required due to inclement weather, the grounds crew will cover the field if it is necessary to keep the playing surface suitable for play. The game will then enter a rain delay.
