- Premiership teams have discussed anti-racism message
- Some players are reluctant to take the knee for political reasons

Representatives from all 12 clubs met via conference call on Tuesday to discuss how best to show support but, in the absence of any directive from Premiership Rugby or the Rugby Football Union, sides are expected to come up with differing gestures.
