Promoted not Champions....I can hear the chant now.

Level 5 by formula not rugby. If you had honour you'd refuse as you haven't earned it... 🥺

But sadly you'll never be able to say you were champions, just promoted thanks to a mathematical fudge...

I'm not sure York can be classed as champions... I'm afraid they should only be classed as promoted.

What are Scabs classed as in that case? “Rescued?”
We're gutted ...we.were just starting a charge...

I'm afraid York will always be known as "Promoted" not Champions. I know it's a shame for the players but it's just the way it is. If the league had continued they may not have been promoted at all......basic maths.

You misunderstood what I was saying....I was suggesting that you shouldn't move to the rolling maul forum you should encourage other clubs to contribute to this one.

I'll be delighted to see you N1E in the pundits league next year...

As has been said, someone was always going to be unlucky. However I can't help feeling its very unfair to relegate a club that hasn't had a chance to fulfill their fixtures.

Although it would have been harsh on clubs missing out on promotion I think null and void would have been fairest.

However we accept and move on.

But much easier for you guys to accept, yes? A team on the slide since Xmas 🙊

We were heading south a long time before Christmas!

Thanks very much BRB for your congratulations, we will certainly take them.

However, as with some of your other comments about York, the paragraph on one of our player's visa is misinformed. 

Can I just take this opportunity, on behalf of all at York RUFC, to wish everyone a peaceful and healthy close season and that when this is all over (which it will be) we can get back to playing, watching and supporting our clubs in the same passionate way we have before.

You forget we have a photocopy of it!

Yes good luck to York very worthy winners.

It will be interesting how you get on. You will lose Cade as his 2 year visa is up. Hopefully you'll keep the rest of your players.

Rugby union is going to be a very different game going forward. Very little money circulating in the game now so will be interesting to see what effect that has on some players.

community game for 2019/20 season confirmed



Following the early end of the rugby season in England as a result of COVID-19, we're announcing the final league positions for the Greene King IPA Championship, Tyrrells Premier 15s and men’s and women’s community game.

Proposals from the RFU governance committee to conclude the season for those leagues at both professional and community level were yesterday ratified by the RFU Council.

It was agreed that final standings for the Greene King IPA Championship and men’s and women’s community game would be calculated on a best playing record formula maintaining promotion and relegation for those leagues. The Tyrrells Premier 15s season has been declared null and void as there is no promotion or relegation in this league.

RFU President, Peter Wheeler, said: “We believe that the decisions made provide fair and balanced outcomes for the game and maintain the integrity of the competitions. We have listened to recommendations from the heart of the game and the approach has been ratified by the RFU Council.

“This has been a difficult decision to make in the most unprecedented of circumstances. There is no single solution that will suit every club, but the approach taken is one that we believe best reflects the nature of league rugby in England.

“With 80% of the season complete for the community game, we believe our approach is fair and the right one for our leagues. We have clubs that are clear league leaders and worthy of promotion, but also other clubs who have said they would benefit from relegation, to play more meaningful rugby.”

Final league tables will be available on the England Rugby website by 6pm, Friday 3 April.
