Prioryman. What do you think the attitude of clubs who are geographically in Durham should be and what practical actions do you think they should take in this matter?‎

I think Leaskie was onto something earlier, Why don't we transfer the whole of DN1 to Yorkshire 1 and the whole of Yorkshire 1 to DN1 - Problem solved!  :P

Seriously though... I think the answer is to just leave DN1 alone and Y1 can have an extra 2 weeks off... Maybe offer them an extra spot in the National cup so a Team can get back the additional fixtures.

Good rational thinking there Dave... which is why the RFU won't consider it.

I see people still seem to think that the leagues are "County RFU" based.
Nowhere else in England other than in RFU North are the league names County based, but are areas.
The names "Yorkshire" and "DN" are just convenient names.
Maybe if Y1 was renamed NESouth1 and DN1 became NENorth1or similar it would concentrate minds better ?

I see the Yorks 1 fixtures are out but with one "TBC" club although the DN1 is still to be published - must be an appeal going on.
Anyone know who - any names forthcoming ?

It is not true that "Nowhere else in England other than in RFU North are the league names County based, but are areas".  The naming of leagues with old county boundaries seems to happen in all of the RFU divsions apart from the Midlands. 

The ongoing appeal is generally thought to be by Acklam.

That's odd.  On the view I have Acklam are not named at all.  Nor is there a TBC team.  http://www.englandrugby.com/fixtures-and-results/competitions/northern-division/2016-2017/group/21289

True the DN clubs can't do much, but maybe the structure should be changed as Ol' Faithful suggests.  In this case sides like York, Scarborough, Northallerton, Ripon, York RI  etc could be brought in with us. Or as suggested clubs in Y1 have a free week.  I just think this is unfair on Acklam, if it is Acklam to transfer.

If it is Acklam to transfer that table is the best it is going to look all season  ;D

And it is a lot less unfair for Acklam to transfer than it would be Barney or Stockton. I think it should be Boro but there you go.

Why not build a wall around the County boundary and really keep things local.

All this moaning stems from the results of two matches at the end of the season. If results had gone the other way the likelihood was that Scarborough would be in DN1.
They publicly accepted the reality of having to transfer if required.

Maybe we should have a referendum!..........

I think the main issue is the travels. its hard enough getting sides out week in week out without travel coming into the equation for lots of lads who work and have young families, often why they pick to play amateur rugby locally because they cant commit to losing a full Saturday every other week.

well known there are some financial incentives in and around Yorkshire so its easier for them maybe?

Whats the problem in having a league with odd number of teams in it?

Its already in place in DN3.

Just relegate/promote the team in question to the league it geographically should be in.

It wont be long before the league is sorted again-just look at the number of level transfers we have had over the years-every time teams get shoved in leagues they shouldnt be in just to get moved out again (in some cases).

So you won't mind explaining how a 15 team league will fit in all the fixtures?
Don't forget the cup matches, including National.
