I'm a simple non committee bloke. Though it may seem that that it's a bg ask. All we can do perhaps for the sake of the great game is ask. Worst case scenario we are as we are . Best outcome would a be a trial ruling/amendment to the rule at this level or local amendment to see if  such a move can result in more game time per player/ less cancellations etc. Anyone know how to get the ball rolling?

Maybe have a word with your County Rep and see if they can get some advice at the next County Committee Meeting. Durham County RFU's next committee meeting takes place on Tues 11th July at Durham City RFC - unless you are with a Northumberland club.

I would suggest in the first instance the League Secretary's be contacted or one of the officials.

Follow this link for contact details.

It can happen if the Divisional organisation committee approves. It happens down South and in Cumbria - but it doesn't seem to work very well in Cumbria as there are a lot of cry-offs. 

All players must be registered with the main club and 2 teams from the same club can't play in the same league so a 2nd team couldn't be promoted into a league that their 1st team was in, and if the 1st team were relegated into the league the 2nd team were in the 2nd team would also be relegated (if there were no lower league they would effectively have to drop out of the league system).  2nd teams can't play higher than Level 8.

I don't know how they stop 1st teamers playing for the 2nd team if there is no 1st team league game.
