Rather than transferring teams to the Yorkshire league, particularly if one of them is going to be travelling from Hartlepool, an alternative would be rebalancing the numbers in the DN divisions. DN3 currently only has 11 active teams.

So are you proposing to the RFU there is

1 less (or no) level transfer from DN1 to Y1
2 something happens to plug the gap(s) in Y1
3 more relegation from DN1 to DN2 to DN3
4 something else

1 and 3. I don't see why any gaps in Y1 should involve Durham clubs.

Something else to throw in to the mix .... itís looking like the playoff will be played at a Durham Club rather than Yorkshire.

After last nights result at Consett it looks like both clubs (Consett and City) will probably end up on 111 points. Any club in the play off will have the second leg at home on that basis and it's most likely to be Scarboro.

Second leg at home?  Thought it was a one off game?

A meeting was held on a Tuesday at Morpeth about the RFU Northís review.

Did anyone attend?

Cumbria apparently want to join DN...

You need to get your clubsí voices heard. If you donít. Itíll only get worse

Iíd argue you now have 4-5 counties in North of England whose clubs (mostly) are not happy with the current RFU set up.

Lancashire - some clubs have withdrawn
Cumbria - now want to join us, as their league system is ruined after Lancashire left.
Cheshire - see above
Northumberland and Durham. We know what our issues are.

Change HAS to happen.

Problem is clubs below L7 wouldnít be able to field strong enough sides on journeys over an hour. It happens now if we have to go Redcar or Whitby. Games at Whitehaven or Barrow wouldnít be competitive at all.

Your spot on Renegade, no suprise the further down the leagues (generally) the smaller the squads.  Asking clubs at the lowest levels to travel across the country (and vice versa) is asking for a large number of cry offs.

Nor sure what the answer is mind.....
