Shipston RFC left in the dark over RFU's competitions restrcuture
WHERE Shipston RFC will play their rugby next season is the “burning question on everyone’s lips” at Mayo Road, says chairman Andrew Powell.
As part of the RFU’s competition restructure to boost participation at levels three and below, all teams at a given level will be grouped together geographically to reduce travel times and distance.
The season will be shortened to address concerns shared by players around the intensity of the current structure. The size of leagues at levels five and below will be capped at 12 teams, with levels three and four to be capped at 14 teams.
