League Restructure Season 2022-23
Many of you will have heard about the league restructure for next season. Here is a brief summary from our Chair, based on what information is available.
The RFU will manage referee appointments to matches down to and including level 4 (National League 2). New cross-regional Federations will be expected to manage level 5 leaving the traditional local federations to manage level 6 and below
In the interest of openness the Society has a 29 page RFU document which gives a global view of what is proposed. If any member would like a copy of this and/or would like to ask questions or give their views please contact Kelvin by emailing email@example.com
