If they used the final league standings rather than the positions teams were at when play was stopped, would it not be Durham and MN down to DN1/Y1 with a possible level transfer required and Ponte and Brid down to Y2?
Correct..I hadn't looked at the tables but assumed flaggy had.

I'd had similar thoughts....

I think we all need to take some time to digest the proposals and take on board the full implications - plus we need to see how the proposed league structure will look in practice (after all we've had a very recent example of brain dead planning).

Once we completely understand what is offer then we can all decide whether to embrace the changes or go for a breakaway. Although a number of clubs are already in active discussions about leaving the structure.

I am presently completely open minded and will just be relieved when real rugby is back being played in any size league!

You could always move to Scarborough 😁😁.... 1 case since the beginning of July. ....and that was a lad who went on a night out in Leeds.....

Another reason to change the conference's.

Tines need replacing every year or two so that's no great drama. We have our own and as the times wear down we just put a new set on.

However there are several grease points that need regular maintenance.

I have no knowledge of whether Ionians pay players or not. Presumably they pay bar staff and nobody bothers about that.
However every club is in the same boat at the moment and asking their members and sponsors to help them out.
Is BRB’s club impervious to all this? If so what’s the secret?
Don't bring me into this! I advertised the fundraising link and offered some free business advice. And as it happens my club has no need to make emergency funding campaigns...which is why I'm happy to help those who do.

The Calderdale tractor/vertidraner is located at Old Crocs as they have a secure garage for it. I believe only they and the Vandals use it. It is not insured as Crocs deemed it too expensive, therefore creating a transportation issue for whoever uses it.

Good way of ensuring that no one else uses it 😄😏

I was happy to highlight your appeal...check the donations made.

Regarding players I was simply helping out ,..many clubs find big egos prevent necessary cost cutting which ultimately leads to insolvency. Just checking that wasn't the case there..
Glad you raised the funds you did.,

It's very sad to see clubs with very fragile finances in real trouble. Hull Ionions have made a desperate appeal for funds to save their club... The link below allows you to contribute to their £10000k appeal(??? Doesn't seem much..?)

Anyone who cares about Is should make a contribution to allow them to continue trading.

Presumably all paid players have been let go?

It's like a 5 year old child came up with these "local" conferences...we drive past Driffield (30mins) to reach Ilkley (2hours +)….... really local.

I think the RFU has been excellent during Covid...good communication and good support. Why is it as soon as it comes to leagues they perpetually and consistently F it up!!!

Swap Ilkley & Bees over for Pocklington and Driffield, would make more sense.
Exactly
