How is proof shown of declaration form completed?

Tigers reference number has to be put in. This will link it to your entry "pass", in my case, season ticket. Don't know if there's one of those on a paper ticket. Presumably, if you haven't done it, the gate won't work. If you can't make it, it might not be the best time to lend a mate your ticket!
I've got a bad feeling about this.

I wonder if anyone was turned away because they did't have appropriate clearance docs?

Entry seemed seamless, no one ask to see my covid pass, I offered my phone but it was waived away, I had completed the proforma declaration so was this transmitted onto my season ticket? It did seem to take a couple of seconds longer before the turnstile was clicked.

Apparently they only checked 20% of the crowd on a random sampling basis

I was checked, but only in a most cursory manner. A quick glance that would only have been enough to see that I had some sort of QR code on my phone and waved through. I was expecting a QR reader, as I'd seen in French cafés, but not the case. Mask wearing in the main concourse under the members stand was at about 30%, with plenty of people not wearing one while queueing for drink, food or toilets or just wandering around. Certainly not restricted to drinking and eating, as such. All a bit moot for future games though, I fear.

They certainly checked my Covid pass.

Not with a QR code reader but did inspect it to confirm it seemed genuine. I guess the software and with it data control measures would be complicated for 3rd party organisations to actively have rights to read the QR code and talk in real time to the national database would be an issue.

I for one am glad Tigers showed they are willing to do their bit to apply the new regulations rather than simply accepting a self declaration. However that must have a cost implication.

Genuine question.

What difference would a QR code reader make unless you think masses of people are using fake passes?

I haven’t got a Covid pass but they did check my lateral flow test.

Well, the pass is in the form of a QR code, so I'd have thought there was information and verification of vaccination status that could be read by a QR reader. Other wise, what's the point of the squarey picture thing in the pass in the first place?

It's highly unlikely that there were masses of people using fake passes, but if you're having a verification pass and not taking people's word, that pass should be checked. Or maybe, if we're just trusting everyone, we won't be asked to show our membership/tickets next time?

That’s not what they do even in places like Italy.

They just verify that the pass is genuine.

They’re not somehow linked up to some major NHS database

So, what is the point of the square? How else would you know it's genuine? why would you need an NHS database? I worked in the NHS for 25 years, and I know how unlikely that would be!

In France, by the way, QR readers are used at cafe's, restaurants etc.

Did they check 20% of the 15,000 tickets sold or the 8,000 approx who turned up? :smt017 :smt030

My son can’t make it so i was going to take my father in law. If I fill in a declaration for him and he takes and brings with him a negative lateral flow test will that be enough?
I don’t know if he has the nhs app so don’t know if he has the passport?

Doesn't need the app,there's a number on the test you put in the NHS website and it will send you over an email stating your name and the test was negative. Just show that on your phone 👍

I’m bringing a friend - first ever rugby game! We’ve filled in a declaration form for her using my Tigers membership number (as instructed by the ticket office) and we will both do a test tomorrow and get that reply text that says negative (I hope) on our phones.

Oh is it a text? My mistake,though it was an email. 🤞 on the tests and have a great day
