I presume they are waiting for lockdown news on Sunday?

Excuse being a little confused, why would Worthing’s first game be at Blaydon, followed by Tynedale.  Surely, they are in different leagues?   
Do you mean Wharfedale , Greenpower?

Well that’s good welcome back to Caldy and New boys Taunton & TJs and of course Leeds but not sure where they fit in as I am not sure when or if they were at level 3 before. Looks like being pretty competitive again cannot wait

Rosslyn Park were in the league. 
And of course they know Moseley and Plymouth.

Didn't realise we were back in N1

When our first game was away to Wharfedale.

remember it well  raider   wharfe were giving you guys a real pounding  it looked like it was  all over by half time   then  2nd half  dale were throwing it about  too much  over confident   and was it kibba richards  or someone fast   took over  scoring 2/3 quick tries   and  dale were left  clining on  for the win   38  34  i think  great times

Winger Alex Nielsen scored at least 1 try from memory. James Chisholm made his Raiders debut off the bench (DR from Quins) - said at the time he reminded me of Dean Richards and should go far.

Other memory, was having to be at the road corner of ground by end of game and run down the driveway to ensure we didn't miss the last bus back to Skipton - not sure why it couldn't be arranged to be a later time but c'est la vie

Good times.

I believe that YC were still Headingley and Roundhay when they were last in this league.
They adopted Leeds Tykes on promotion.

The Tykes mailing list seems to believe they will revert to the Leeds Tykes name - but obviously that paperwork has not arrived at the NCA.

There is also the question of where they will play - with the betting being not Headingley - and probably  Leeds Beckett University and with a side featuring predominately Leeds Beckett students.

Of course this is all moot if we do not get a season.

From Wikipedia

Leeds RUFC was founded in 1991 after the merger of Roundhay and Headingley.
In the first season in National Three, Leeds finished 6th, but League reorganisation put the club in National Division Four - level 4

In 1997–98, they were promoted from the newly formed Jewson One to Premiership Two - level 3

In 1998, the club amalgamated with Leeds Rhinos to form Leeds Rugby Limited. Leeds RUFC took on a new name when they entered the 1998 Premiership Two competition, Leeds Tykes.

They were promoted to the Premiership in 2001. 

IN 2007, the club was renamed as Leeds Carnegie in a deal with Leeds Metropolitan University, which took a 51% stake. 

In 2014, the club was rebranded as Yorkshire Carnegie

Clubs have been asked for their fixture preferences, however, I know that CB fixtures are on hold and will not start to be prepared until we have a restart date, increasingly likely to be 1st January.

Talking Rugby Union suggested yesterday that matches could start in  November. Incidentally if anyone doesn't follow them on twitter it is a great source of Rugby News and interviews with players from all levels of the game.

not sure why one media organisation gets singled out for criticism by our resident simian sceptic. they are all speculating what might happen regarding resumption, for one simple reason: no-one knows - it remains TBC.

sports journos haven't had any live sport to cover for 2 months, so those still in work are dividing their time between this type of story and retro 'best game/player ever' type features... both perfectly legitimate options, in the circumstances, IMHO.

Is teams travelling all over the country by coach, a great form of transport for transmitting the decease, the best thing to do next season?
Would the game not be better served by having local leagues next season?
In my area for instance a decent top league would be Cornwall & Devon which could easily be covered using car travel.

Given the financial uncertainty this would save a massive amount on travel money for both the RFU and the club's.  National Leagues could then restart In the new format in 2021/2022.

Guernsey currently have a 14 day quarantine for anybody travelling from the UK.
