One club from the 8 level 6 leagues in England will be saved from relegation. The 12th placed team with the most points from the 8 leagues will be saved, as things stand I think that is a club in one of the midlands leagues.

Sadly I think City are doomed. Northampton Old Scouts in Midlands 1 East have 47 points at the moment and their 2 remaining fixtures are against the bottom 2 sides, so they are likely to finish with 55-57 points which would put them as the highest placed level 6 side in 12th place in their respective league well above City.

Sounds like they are down then, a bit unexpected to say the least.

With Guis and City coming down all eyes will eventually be on the play off for N 1 East which will be between Barney or Westoe against West Leeds or Heath. Presumably if West Leeds or Heath win Guis would go into Yorkshire 1 ?

That would make sense, they play in Yorkshire cups and are south of the Tees by quite a few miles. Redcar have been in the Yorkshire leagues in the past so presumably Guis can do the same.

It looks like Penrith will finish 2nd in N1E, if they win the playoff there will have to be another team level transferred to take their place because there is only 1 eastern team coming down from Nat3. So newley promoted Carlisle could be the team to make the switch to the east.

It might make sense but I am not sure that is how the RFU will decide.  The basis of deciding which club should level transfer to Yorkshire 1 will again be Lowest Total Mileage to the other clubs.  As Guisboro and Redcar will no doubt claim they have to travel to virtually Middlesbrough before they start their journey south then their mileage should be greater than Middlesbrough RUFC.  If Boro cannot find another reason to evade transfer it looks, to me, like it could be them.
