Eastern Counties Leagues for 2014/15


THE INFORMATION IN THIS ARTICLE HAS BEEN SUPERCEDED – CLICK HERE FOR THE LATEST INFORMATION

FIXTURES HAVE BEEN PUBLISHED AND ARE AVAILABLE BY CLICKING HERE

DSC01607 Eastern Counties has published the leagues for 2014/15 and there are some radical changes. 2nd XVs have been allowed into the leagues for the first time as have 3rd, 4th and 5th teams, and Eastern Counties 2 has been split North and South.

The Norfolk, Suffolk and Greene King Country Merit Tables have been absorbed creating two new levels. Eastern Counties 3 is split three ways, North, West and South, with Eastern Counties 4 split North and South.

I have published the leagues as they currently stand below although there is still a chance that there will be some changes.

You are welcome to comment below, on Facebook or on Twitter, but the proper way to make your views known to Eastern Counties is through your club committee.

    This is a fantastic idea and one I’ve been a keen advocate of for years. The issue has always been what if the 1st XV struggle with injuries and want to use 2nd XV players. Underneath the RFU rules these players would need to register as playing for a different team now in the league stucture and it takes about a week to register a player.
    This seems to have always been the sticking point when people have spoke about this in Cornwall.

    Totally support this idea, Wiltshire have been running with it and it seems to work. Come on Cornwall catch up and let’s see more people playing rugby
