1. To agree a structure
2. Are you sure it ain’t broke?
Doing away with level transfers is a starter.
It's the cup comps that are broke.
Even you admit as such.

L7 (at the Leeds meeting) didn't ask for 12 team leagues but still the committee try and push through their crusade for it.

Spoke to a contact in Cheshire they will return as long as they get the structure they want.

Bit like the current political debate on Brexit  “it’s there deal or no deal”.

The email sent out today doesn't include them so looks like they are happy with their current lot.

Some of the Level 6 clubs aren't going to be happy they weren't informed.

Level 6 clubs have been informed BUT only if they attended the meetings which they weren't officially notified of in the first place. Option A splits L6 from 2 to 3 leagues of 12 based on post codes. Option B the same but with 14 teams and Option 3 doesn't affect L6 just L7 and below.

There's now options D and E

But option C would affect the promotion/relegation between L6 and L7 this season for the clubs involved.

Yes option C would mean relegation and promotion in the usual way, but A and B would mean no relegation from L 6 this season. I might be cynical here but I reckon the proposed A and B options with save RFU a bit in travel grants ;D

Well said BRB, I’m not a club official of ant club but I have a copy of all three documents. Sent to me by a friend in Cheshire. I’m reliably told the three documents are n the breakaway Lancashire leagues web site.

Only seen the documents on my phone and useless with technology so it may be quicker for you to look at the Lancashire web site.

Looking at options D and E are they a joke!

Option E has levels 8 to 10 merged with local leagues. Will never work the Eat Yorkshire league has strong sides like Goole in the same league with Nesle and Osset will kill smaller clubs who want to play and enjoy their rugby.

I’m looking at the three documents on my phone on a train so will look later st home on laptop.

But my first impression are some are just there so they can be rejected and we end up with what the RFU want.

And that's assuming the GMS DB links worked.
It was apparent at the last meeting some/quite few club contact details were being missed by the system

Its going to be be near on impossible to satisfy such a wide range of requirements. They could change everything to please some currently unhappy clubs and end up with a legion of newly unhappy clubs!
