Conference South has been launched with six teams (Bristol Sonics, St Albans Centurions, Leicester Storm, Northampton Demons, Nottingham Outlaws, Sheffield Hallam Eagles).

Looks like clubs have voted for 15 games and triple round robin.


Nice one! Great stuff! Alhough the name is a little confusing seeing as only 2 of the teams are in the South. :lol:

It's a little disapointing that there is no London based team there after the successful expansion there in the last few years. A little worrying for the future if the amateur game here also. At least the league is up and running and can add teams in the next few years if they express an interest.

Apparently 4 clubs have expressed an interest in joining in future and at least one of them is London based. 2 of them would have been ready this year were it not for travel costs IMO.

Hemel, Skolars and South Wales have all decided to run U20 teams rather than reserves otherwise this league would have been bigger.

Although its a bit disappointing to have just the 6 for the Southern Conference opening campaign the interest of four others may be in 2014 is encouraging. Yes Skolars, Hemel and UGAG would have added credibility but those clubs now deciding to running U20s is a further plus already for the game in the midlands & south. Exciting times.

To Northerners Nottingham is South, to southerners it is North. Like a lot of the Midlands nobody wants to really claim it as their own!

I'd love to claim it as league's though. Coventry will be the first semi pro step in that direction next season to be the tip of the midlands league iceberg topping the conference and uni teams.

You mean Broncos don't create huge interest in grassroots rugby league in London!

A league along this basis was proposed in 2010 and even then West London and South London didn't want to know. Now they have to merge to be able to exist at a lower level than the one they were individually doing very well in back then.

Indeed. Sadly London rugby hasn't moved on in the last few years even though Herts, the North East and the Midlands have.
