North Shields have had a great season and after beating Medicals in the semi final they take on Novos in the plate final. Morpeth 7:45 KO on Wednesday if anyone is interested.

More or less nailed on that Gosforth will lose to Westoe. Very sad to see a club like Gosforth relegated to DN2. Hopefully they’ll bounce back

A post from Rolling Maul National League Forum:

As a fan of local and club rugby I am concerned about another town that could soon be without rugby union.

With Darlington Rugby Club now sharing grounds with Darlington Football club and struggling to field more than 1 senior team, and numbers falling throughout colts and junior ranks. It seems that the Football club could soon stake claim to Blackwell Meadows.

Additionally with DMPs finances in a questionable state according to rumours and AGMs, also they have most certainly lost the family feel the club was famous for. It seems they are solely focused on the 1st team, making decisions this year like charging the 3rd team and their opponents to watch the 1st team after they had played in the earlier fixture.

How close is the end to rugby in Darlington, it could be the case soon that there are no Rugby Clubs in the town. More realistically there may be a professionally/semi professional team which is ran with no 2nd/3rd teams or Junior sections and purely focuses on the Sharks premiership women's teams and Championship Rugby.

I think the position of both of the town's Historic Rugby Clubs are soon to be if not already in a sorry state of affairs where the Rugby

Olfaithful, you've raised some pertinent points.

As a side note, my dad an I have compiled a detailed and comprehensive report into the health of senior rugby in the North East. This is based on DN clubs' league standings since the start of league rugby.

Following this weekend's league results which have seen Northern and West Hartlepool relegated, and Percy Park on the brink, we have sent the report to the county, rather than wait for the end of the (elongated) season.

The report is rather rough around the edges, as we wanted to send it off ASAP. However, we think it paints a good picture, albeit bleak, of how the overall position of our clubs in the leagues is diminishing.

I personally hope it could see some change, or at least start a discussion, as to how rugby is being played in the North East...

Durham & Northumberland One / Dreaded League Reshuffles.

Well it looks nigh on certain that West Hartlepool, Percy Park and Northern will be relegated into DN1. West and Northern are officially relegated.

It is a sad state of affairs for North East rugby. North One East might only have two DN clubs (Morpeth and probably Durham City) in the league next season as Alnwick look certain to go up and we’re not certain if a DN club will win the play off!

If DN do  lose the play off, there will be a league imbalance of two teams. So what do we think will happen? It seems likely that Guisborough will be level transferred, but we’ll still have an imbalance of one. I’d assume that there’ll be 3 clubs relegated into DN2...

What’s your thoughts?

I don’t think you can be level transferred from promotion?

Durham & Northumberland One / We’re Back!

I would like to say thank you to all the kind messages from those that wanted this place back up and running. It’s been tough to get back up due to a number of reasons. However, those kind messages made us realise it was worth our while to get this forum back up!

However, I’d really like to thank Trotty, from Consett RFC. He has kindly offered to pay for the running of this website (which due to personal reasons I could no longer manage). Without him, this place really would be dead and buried.

Let’s keep this place going, and let’s make it worth everyone’s while. So let’s keep posting and keep the chat clean and friendly. After all, rugby is the best game in the world!

Thanks again,

THe cup final which was scheduled for Easter Saturday is now being shifted for a rearranged league fixture.

RFU kindly meddling again...

I therefore won’t be surprised if the Novos v Medicals final will also be moved to accommodate our respective rescheduled fixtures

The RFU have taken the ringfence off Easter weekend and all games cancelled from the 3rd will be played then.

Novos and medicals are in a plate final that day!

Thought on this weekend?

You’d expect Ireland and France to win.

Scotland will be hoping for an upset!
