Not folded but withdrawn from Premier I believe. Juniors still in action and I think open age might play Entry League?

I thought something was up when I saw the referee appointments for this weekend.  Wests have taken over this weekend's fixture but I've had no response to my question as to whether they'll take over the fixtures for the rest of the season.

Wests haven't taken over this weeks fixture and won't going forward from what I hear ... Would you?

Bit of a lose lose situation!

All sweetness and light in the expansion areas then

Well, yes and no I suppose, speaking from a St Albans point of view.  On the up side we have enough players to run two senior teams and three junior ones, and every one of the seniors, bar three ex pat northerners, is  a local lad.   On the down side, the difference in playing standards between clubs in the same league is the problem.

The question now is whether Staines' games are expunged or whether they're all set to walkovers.  For fairness purposes, I'd presume expunging the records.

 

From the looks of it, Esher pulled out of another game in Div 1.

Just had a look on the London RFL site and the Staines games have been removed from the league table.

Even though it's a shame they had to do it I think it's good Staines admitted they'd made a mistake. I've known clubs insist they can stay in the league and endlessly mess everyone around calling off games and show no remorse for it. Be interesting to see how next season goes as on the face of it North Herts Crusaders should be team 6 (on field I'd say St Ives but North Herts have better strength of club) but I also think the overall structure needs looking at to decide if this is the best model.

Esher have pulled out of tomorrow's game by the looks of it

Not surprised.  They're in a lot of trouble at Open Age level.
