The tractor in Calderdale used to be stored at Old Crossleyans. It has never been at Old Rishworthians. Anyway whatever contract was in existence has ended and the tractor is no more. Lack of use by the 6 Calderdale Clubs.

Congratulations and best wishes to Old Brods and Heath. Both clubs deserve to be promoted and Old Rishworthians are looking forward to Yorkshire 1.

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.

If rugby did the same surely any red cards or other disciplinary matters would also be reversed.
As far as Saracens are concerned they are relegated owing to multiple seasons of over stepping the salary cap.

Good post BrB.
I live in a rural area outside Halifax and My wife and I have been carrying out much needed gardening in this fine weather. Our daughter only lives 3 miles away but her and her husband are working from home. With two children aged 10 and 6 they are trying to adapt. We wish we could help, other than using face timing or other means. Before The outbreak we purchased a cockapoo puppy Jack and he is taking up a lot of our time. As far as the Rugby Club is concerned we are of course on shutdown, and thankfully have no loans to service. It was only on Monday that one of our members managed to brush the pitch following the floods in February. It’s going to be a long haul but let’s hope our British spirit pulls through. Best wishes and stay safe.

I was merely stating a fact and this would solve the play off situation. As far as Old Rishworthians are concerned, the club will go along with whatever is decided. Having lost out to Hessle in 200-01 season owing to the foot and mouth outbreak by 1/100th of a point anything is possible.

WRU have agreed that there is no promotion or relegation. Seems reasonable to me.

Message from RFU Chief Executive Bill Sweeney

My thoughts and those of all of us at the RFU are with everyone impacted by COVID-19 as well as recent flooding events, both across the country at large but also within our own rugby union community.

In order to provide clarity and to assist with immediate and longer term planning, the RFU is today announcing the end of the 2019/20 rugby season for all league, cup and county rugby in England. The only exception to this is the Gallagher Premiership, who we are in active discussions with to review possible best next steps.

When current government advice on social distancing measures changes, we will naturally encourage rugby training and friendlies to recommence.

I would like to personally thank everyone for their swift actions in suspending rugby activity, this is not an easy time and I know many of you will have concerns that go beyond the game.

We are working through the implications of ending the season early and have instigated a thorough process to ensure fair and balanced outcomes for the game. We will communicate these outcomes by the middle of April. While we would like to provide all the answers now, we need some time to get it right for the best interests of the game. Rest assured we are working on this as a priority and we will continue to send weekly updates to clubs.

The three areas of focus for the RFU right now are Welfare, Implications and Reboot.


We are ensuring colleagues and communities are given support to follow government advice and are providing recommendations on how to stay fit and healthy using individual training programmes. We are also talking to government about how we can deploy and mobilise our own resources across England to support the vulnerable.


Every union is different, with unique structures and challenges and the RFU needs to manage its own particular complexities. Our business model is similar to most rugby clubs - we earn revenue from events on and off the field and we invest that back into the game. We benefit from strong Twickenham Stadium revenues but we are also exposed if there is widespread cancellation of games and events.

In this extraordinary situation we are working through a range of potential financial scenarios dependent mainly on the length of this crisis. This was already budgeted to be a loss making year within a 4 year cycle due to the costs of the 2019 RWC campaign and only hosting two home Six Nations games. The loss will now be considerably more as we face challenges similar to businesses across the entire country. There may well also be much longer term financial implications which we are assessing now. It is therefore taking us some time to develop a considered position on how we can support clubs and the rugby community, which we will do.

We have already undertaken financial measures to safeguard the business enabling us to review all options and programmes to provide support for clubs in these difficult times.

We welcome the measures announced by Government which could provide crucial support to professional and community clubs and the RFU. We are in regular contact with Sport England and The Sport and Recreation Alliance to understand how business rate relief and hardship funds can be accessed by clubs and will be providing assistance to make sure every club who is eligible will be supported.

The implications for all areas of rugby will be thoroughly worked through and solutions discussed and developed with the clubs.


Our welfare advice before the start of next season will switch to offering guidance on how players at all levels can reboot and get match ready.

We will work closely with constituent bodies to support clubs, competition organisers and the wider rugby community in preparing to re-start rugby in what is likely to be a challenging environment.

In recent days we have all been inspired by the many stories across the rugby family working together to support those who are the most vulnerable in their community – this encapsulates the unique spirit of rugby. I am confident that this spirit and resilience during these tough times will ensure we will come through this together and emerge stronger.

Take care and stay safe,

Bill Sweeney

The results on the RFU website are in the wrong order.

Leighton Buzzard (Midlands 2 East South) Level 7 plays Old Brodleians Yorkshire 1 Level 7.

Spalding (Midlands 3 East South Level 8, plays Wetherby Yorkshire 2 Level 8

Leeds Corinthians Yorkshire 3 plays Birstall (Midlands 4 South East Level 9)

Get used to the names of the leagues in 2021/22, as all National Leagues will follow suite
