·         16 teams. Split into 2 x 8. WEST AND EAST.

PHASE 1

·         WEST. Each team plays one another Home & Away = 14 matches.

·         EAST. Each team plays one another Home & Away = 14 matches.

 

 PHASE 2

·         After completion of 14 matches, top 4 teams in WEST play top 4 Teams in EAST.

·         After completion of 14 matches, bottom 4 teams in WEST play bottom 4 Teams in EAST.

·         To ease fixture congestion, the results of matches played in the first half of the season (ie. Phase 1), will be carried forward into the second half of the season, for teams who were in their leagues during the first half of the season. This will result in each team playing eight matches in the second half of the season – giving 22 matches in total for the whole season.


 
It is also proposed, to relax the RFU Competitions Regulations in respect of:

1.       Unplayed matches: Where a team does not fulfil a fixture, the non-offending team will be awarded 5 match points, and the offending team will be deducted 5 match points. The unplayed game will not be rearranged.

2.       Failure to notify the League Secretary of the Match Result in the allotted time: There will be no Monetary Fine. Instead 2 Match Points per Offence will deducted from offending teams.

·         Existing Regulations in respect of Front Rows, Player Registrations, Match Card information, Postponement Procedures, will continue to be enforced, but these will be reviewed at the end of the season, with a view to further relaxations in subsequent seasons.
