In the Midlands 7 clusters of 6 teams have been proposed comprising level 5 and 6 teams (Midlands Premier, M1E and M1W) chosen by geography. Clubs have been asked to opt in or out by 30th November.

The document received states the below:

This proposal is based around five principles.

 

       Providing clubs with structured local competitive fixtures

       Based on contact rugby (either full contact or adapted variations dependent on HM Government advice)

       Minimised travel times

       Local clusters of up to 7 teams (the number will vary according to specific regions and on agreed local needs)

       Relaxed regulations to remove barriers to participation

Presumably by blowing his whistle and giving a free kick against the offending side?

Not sure about elsewhere but these RFU proposed clusters are proving to be a shambles in the Midlands. Many clubs are choosing their own little clusters leaving many clubs who want to partake high and dry without opposition unless they are prepared to travel - which defeats the whole exercise?

We had a Midlands cluster but it proved to be impossible to get any of the sides to take part for various reasons. We seem to be the only side desperate to get back on the park.

We have now approached a group of northern clubs in our area and hopefully we can join up with them. It does mean we can revisit some teams that we haven't played for some time.

We've heard nothing from London & South East either.

Yes sir!

Public websites are hardly known for providing definitive and accurate information as Dickon has just proved. Look at this one for a start as you have just proved!

Our cluster (Sandbach) is now as follows -  

BIRKENHEAD PARK
LYMM
MACCLESFIELD
NORTHWICH
WATERLOO
WILMSLOW
WIRRAL

Looking forward to renewing some old acquaintances.

Thanks, MMU aren't on the Lancashire RFU PDF I took the information from - although I did know we're supposed to be in a 7 or 8 team cluster.
Although if Greater Manchester stays Tier 3 and High Peak slips into Tier 2 (Glossop) or vice versa things could still change

Was looking forward immensely  to our first meaningful game of rugby last Saturday in what seems an eternity....a friendly  against Eastleigh (who we were meant to play in the HAMPSHIRE cup final last season!)
BUT two days before the game the Havant area was one the first recipients of the tier 4  brigade so it was  obviously cancelled !
Even though we ALL want to see our clubs play let's face it, it wont happen until the vaccines are rolled out

Watched my first game yesterday a local derby Billingham development squad v Stockton development squad the final score line flattered Billingham 82-0. The game was in 4 quarters and most of the points came in the last two as Billingham鈥檚 greater squad depth showed. Speaking to Stockton after the game the message was first it was great to play some form of rugby and even though they were on the wrong end of the score they took a lot of positives from the game so much so that they want to play again. To put some history to this game Billingham 1st team use to play regular fixtures against Stockton 3rds such was the gulf and credit has to be given to the way Billingham have invested time and money in making sure the youth section is well looked after and whilst the recent history as seen the teams pass in the current league structures Stockton currently have a formidable sized youth section which I hope and no doubt will give them a strong future.
