91 clubs surveyed and three quarters don't meet the RFU guidleines with a third not knowing if their first aiders had any first aid qualification.

No it doesn't.

I guess that clubs are going to have to make the effort to train-up volunteers to achieve the basic level of match-day training. We do this at Dursley and many people have basic medical qualifications via work so Sundays are well covered.

There is certainly not the money/funding to have the hordes of medics that the elite game has/needs.

The danger is that Govt legislation may be introduced along with minimum standards/certificates etc; . Would kill the lower-level teams unless they make a conscious effort to train from within.
Nothing wrong with free speech or having an opinion - as long as it matches mine !!
