Please see attached the draw for the NLD U14, 15 & 16 competitions in 2017-18. Please take a few moments to look at these carefully and if you have any queries then don’t hesitate to get in touch.
We have split this competition into Cup & Shield tiers and it will hopefully be fairly self explanatory on the attached in terms of the format. In order for the Cup teams to be guaranteed 3 matches like the Shield teams we have included an playoff for these teams on finals day.
We are holding a waitlist for the U14 competition. Therefore if for any reason you need to withdraw please let us know as soon as possible.
U15 & 16 Pool Competitions
In order to manage the Age Grade Rugby Calendar with the number of teams that have entered we have had to juggle a couple of the dates. Please make sure you look at these carefully as the is the odd date that may differ slightly from the original calendar.
For the semi finals in the U15/16 competitions the teams will play either home or away which will be confirmed nearer the time.
- The team listed first in each match will be the home team.
- Teams can between themselves agree to play the match on an alternative date before the allocated match date. However both teams must agree to this and NLD must be approached and included in the initial discussion. The default date will always be the date listed on the draw.
- We have submitted these fixtures to the NLD Referees Society to request referees.
