I could not find the "copy from the RFU Match Official Developers giving explanatory notes" attachment with your post.

Other Senior Rugby / Re: Lower XV joining National League
« on: July 31, 2021, 09:43:13 AM »
I am afraid you are already too late.

The inclusionof lower teams was one of 5 items confirmed at the RFU AGM in April and WILL start in 2022-23.

See part of the circular sent out to Clubs in April from the RFU below.  Full document is attached.

Adult Male Future Competitions Structure from season 2022/23
RFU Council voted on 27 November 2020 and 16 April 2021 to pass the following resolutions for a new competition structure in the adult male game from Level 3 and below.
The recommendations were proposed by the Future Competitions Structure Working Group following an 18-month review into the current competition structure, which has included extensive consultation sessions with Council Members, Constituent Bodies, Club administrators, competition organisers, match officials, coaches and players, in addition to webinars, a national survey and detailed analysis of available data.

5. Lower XV teams
From season 2022/23, Lower XV teams will be able to play in the English Clubs Championship up to and including Level 7, (no longer capped at Level 8), subject to specific criteria to be set out in the RFU Regulations.
The addition of Lower XVs teams aims to offer appropriate competition opportunities for appropriate Lower XV teams, and to increase the number of teams in leagues at certain levels, which should decrease travel time for clubs and players.
For example, by grouping on a regional basis, a 2nd or 3rd XV team in Level 7 could be of similar standard to a 1st or 2nd Xv team in League 8 and they will now be able to compete against each other if they wish. This is voluntary. Clubs can sign up and will only be admitted if they fulfil the criteria, the detail of which will be confirmed in the implementation phase, but which is likely to offer some sensitivity to local needs.

Merit Leagues / New Central Merit League announced for 2021-22

New merit league announced - Central Premier Merit Table to replace Central East and Central West Leagues

Central East and West Leagues have been combined with Keighley 3 dropping out and Huddersield YMCA 2 dropping down from Championship A. Fixture Secretaries are being asked to arrange fixtures for a maximum of 22 games.

Apparently this is due to requested club changes which reduced number of teams in certain leagues

League is composed of
Baildon 2
Castleford 2
Huddersfield YMCA 2
Ilkley 3
Leodiensian 3
Morley 3
North Ribblesdale 2
Old Crossleyans 2
Ossett 2
Roundhegians 2
Selby 3
Skipton 2
West Leeds 2
West Park Leeds 2
Yarnbury 3
York 3

Other Senior Rugby / RFU Return to Rugby
« on: August 04, 2020, 07:42:19 PM »
New email from RFU has been circulated to clubs.

Action Plan

"Having undertaken the required exposure risk analysis of face to face contact within game and training situations, our action plan to government is focused on a staged return, commencing with non-contact rugby - initially restricted to activity within individual clubs and focused on Ready4Rugby, a 10-a-side variant of touch rugby. We will monitor this over the first few weeks and, subject to satisfactory implementation, would then look to permit inter-club activity using approved non-contact formats. In parallel with this, we will be considering the potential for some adaptations to the high-risk elements of contact rugby to see whether appropriate mitigations can be introduced (a subsequent exposure risk analysis on this would have to be approved by government). If this proves possible we would again introduce this gradually, initially through training and subsequently in inter-club matches. This would then continue until it is deemed safe, and appropriate government permissions are in place, to move back to full contact rugby – at least four weeks being in place between commencement of full contact training and match play for full contact rugby. "

Update on adult league rugby

As stated above, we are at Stage B on the Return to Community Rugby Roadmap. We have to reach Stage F (which will not be reached until at least four weeks after Stage E) before full contact competitive league rugby can commence. As a result of the current position, the adult league season (Level 3 & below for men, Level 2 & below for women) will not commence in September. Unless there is a dramatic improvement in the prevalence of the virus in the community, the next announcement about when league rugby will commence for these levels will be on 1 September. The fixtures previously published will be amended at the earliest opportunity and this will be communicated to clubs.

I stand corrected Percy!

I rechecked and found your are correct - the YM ground and buildings are up for offers.

Comment on Planning
The site of the buildings is unallocated and the remainder of
the site is allocated Urban Green Space on the current
adopted Kirklees Local Plan.
Prospective purchasers must reply upon their own planning

Today's Yorkshire Post has an advert offering YM's ground for sale, so they may need a new pitch as well as new players.


I think if you study the map and details more carefully you will find the plot of land for sale is at the other side of New Hey Road.

Although it is in Salendine Nook it is adjacent to Huddersfield New College and Salendine Nook High School.

It is not YM's ground.

Other Senior Rugby / Draft League Structure

The Draft league structure for the North has been published on rfunorth.com

Still a couple of level transfers to confirm.

Kendal to N1W seems to be straightforward.

DN1 / Y1 is less straightforward.http://

Thanks very much

Yorkshire 2 / Re: Final league standings
« on: April 02, 2020, 07:05:11 PM »
No playoffs. Promoted team(s)  based upon better scoring record. In Y1 Old. Rods and Heath go to N1E with Consett. Middlesborough had a poorer playing record.

Ymca and Bradford and Bingley to come down to Y1 and Percy park to DN1.

That’s my understanding.

West Hartlepool might be surprised.  They are 30 points below B&B and Percy Park

North One / Re: What happens if the Season finishes early?
« on: March 15, 2020, 07:18:58 PM »

I've read up on it and the regs are very clear:

- in the event of the league competition not being completed the following will be the default position:

i. any club which requires a walk of more than 25m from clubhouse to pitch side will be relegated
ii. any club that hoovers shittt up off the pitch will be relegated
iii. any club with a sense of grandeur and superiority will be promoted..

Hope that helps ...

I could not find the regulations to which BRB refers.

However, I did find a little information on Wikipedia – ref National Division 3 North : Level 4 2000-01

The foot-and-mouth outbreak made relegation far from straightforward as initially the bottom two were Aspatria and Tynedale, who had played 18 games each - less than any of the other teams in the division. In Tynedale's case this was particularly hard as they were only 1 point behind 12th placed Sandal but had played six games less. In the end the RFU had to re-think relegation and used a complicated process based on early season form which meant that 14th placed Aspatria and 11th placed Walsall went down.[3][6] Aspatria dropped to North Division 1 while Walsall went into Midlands Division 1

Both Aspatria and Walsall appealed, but with no success.

Also found this on Old Rishworthians web site

In the 2000/01 season they came joint second, again coached by Peter Walker and captaincy of Daz Wade. Promotion was thwarted by the RFU imposing the "foot and mouth ruling" when calculating its position in the league, and the Club lost out by one hundredth of a point.

This email has been circulated by the League Secretary of North Premier.

Dear all
One or two have been asking about whether or not the games are to be played on Saturday. I have just received the following to give some clarification.
The Government yesterday announced that there is no change in advice regarding sporting events at the moment i.e. they can continue. Given this, league and cup games will be played as usual, and any games scheduled to take place in an organised competition should be played unless agreed otherwise with your Divisional Organising Committee league/cup organiser.
This is to be kept under continual review.
Ron Lewis

From the Bournville RFC web site. (Similar message on the Kettering web site)

The Midlands Division Organising Committee have advised that due to the impending weather conditions that are about to hit the United Kingdom in the form of Hurricane Dennis, all league fixtures have been cancelled. The decision was taken with the safety of players, officials, spectators and travelling support as paramount.
Updates will follow for dates of the re-arranged fixtures when confirmed. A decision for Sunday rugby for the mini and juniors is pending.
