Atilla-its 1 extra team so 2 extra fixtures, i know the fixture list is already crowded but as a player i would rather take 2 more games than all the travel......take your choice

Didnt mind explaining at all......

But the schedules don't allow for it.
Besides, the rules and regulations are issued......but because some now don't like the outcome they want to ignore the process.

A bit like clubs taking up the offer of a place in the National Cups then blogging on the fixtures. Ironically one of them, BC, getting themselves entered into the level transfer argument.

If people are unhappy with the current regulations they should take it up with their CB representative and let them know the strength of feeling on the subject.

The reason there is an odd number of teams in DN3 is because all of the leagues above them have been evened up. So if this was to be applicable in the Yorkshire league set up from Y1-Y5 maybe there'd be no need for level transfers.

Just a thought from a humble man at Level 9.  ;)

It's 2 extra fixtures, but 4 extra league Saturday's because each week there will be one team without a game.

And the RFU have tried every fiddle and cheat they can think of to reduce the leagues down to 12 teams so the chances of them letting them drift up to 15 or more are slim indeed.

When is the appeal hearing for Acklam? Does anyone give them a chance of success? D&N1 are the only fixtures not out yet in our region.

RFU official website has Acklam in Y1 league....

Hospitality was fantastic at our match this season (incl the called off game) Great atmosphere at the club, some good players as well so hopefully you get stuck in ! Great opportunity to play in a very competitive league week in week out.

Best of luck for the season Ack.  Why the RFU couldn't have just relegated one from Y1, who knows.

Tough luck Acklam. I felt that you were shafted 3 years ago but look at how you're fairing in comparison to the side that asked not to be transferred...

I feel for you again this time. Its as if the RFU are fundamentally incorrigible - to the despair of many clubs.

Hopefully you'll be stronger than the last time you were there. We're all backing you!

Well said Guv. l think its fair to say, thats a sentiment the vast majority of us will share right now. It just goes to show how little we all matter to the powers that be. At the end of the day, we're all tiny fish in a big pond... its just a case of trying to avoid the attention of the bigger fish who don't give a shit what we taste like, but continue to gobble us up regardless.

Thanks Guys, we wouldn't wish a level transfer on anyone but twice in short succession is a bit of a kick in the teeth, different league for 5 or 6 years in a row for us I think? DN 2, DN1, Y1, DN2, DN1, Y1 and hopefully DN1 next year.

Not bothered by the challenge and the guys over in Yorkshire are very hospitable, indeed we adopted the regular buffet many of you have feasted on :) but the travel can get a bit tedious. Hopefully we will give a better account of ourselves this time round and I look forward to playing you the season after (injuries pending :) )
