[QUOTE=Sid James]Just had an email from YRFU re: 2ndXV Merit Tables for next season.
It rightly states that there will be opportunities for the 1st & 2nd XV's to travel together but they are leaving it up to the Clubs to organise. Quite correct.
It also states that the 1stXV fixtures will not be out until 16th June!
[/QUOTE

It actually says "by June 16th" if you read it carefully]

That's not a mistake Camquin. All will become clearer when EC publish level 9 and below leagues later this week. RFU publish all nationally regulated leagues but in EC local regulation starts at Level 9 - Eastern Counties 1. Although perhaps we should use the new naming convention and callmit Counties Eastern 1 East - West or something along those lines.

Sorry forgot to Quote- it is the omission of Thetford that is not a mistake.

Just had it confirmed that there will only be 2 relegations from the Nat2 leagues next season  - only the winners of Level 5 leagues will be promoted to Level 4 - no play offs for runners up

Can you say who confirmed it and their source?

Makes sense.
6 leagues into 3
Looking forward to new beginnings.

Our Fixture Sec has been following this thread and told me that he had emailed the RFU yesterday about promotion & relegation for L6 and above and received the following:
"The regulations around promotion & relegation will be approved at the June council meeting.  We will then share the relevant information as soon as we are able to following this."

That's not to say that Nat2 clubs haven't been informed, but it's not been signed-off yet.

I've got mixed feelings about this. On the one hand 20odd? years of play offs have kept the season going right to the end for a few more clubs and inevitably produce pulsating games given the winner takes all scenario. On the other hand 3 teams down from a 14 team league seems disproportionate and may explain why we get so many clubs that "yo-yo"

There have been 18 play-offs, of those four of the winners were relegated the next season and two after two seasons - plus Tonbridge who were awarded the place.
Seven remained in National 1 or higher, with three now in the Championship.

Sedgley Park and Launceston both took part three times, Ampthill, DMP and  Loughborough Students twice.

But with three leagues going into one, so with three down already, I do not see how you could fit it in at level 4.

That makes sense to me, only 1 team being promoted from each of the level 4 leagues so only 2 down with winners only being promoted is fair.

You have to remember a number of the top level 5 teams have been promoted in the reorganisation.

At the NLR AGM today we were told that the Level 3/4 fixtures are ready but that the RFU wants to do a consolidated release of fixtures. NLR are questioning that! The RFU announcement will be 16th June “at the latest”.

Take care on that date everyone. You need to be careful.
