Please see attached a copy of the NLD U14-16 Competition Draws for 2018-19. There are a few points to note below:
We have tried to accommodate all Cup / Shield requests but this wasn’t possible in every instance and was therefore done on a first come, first served basis. In the Cup Competition we will include the Cup & Plate PlayOff matches on Finals Day as we did in 2018 which worked well.
The teams listed first in Round 1 will have a home draw for that game. Once the results from the first round are known the home / away teams for the next round will be drawn.
The U14’s Finals Day will be held on Sunday 3rd March 2019 (venue TBC).
Semi Finals & Finals
Please check carefully the format of your competition as these will differ slightly depending on the number of teams entered for each competition and the rounds available.
U15 & U16 Matches
The team listed first in each game will be the team with the home draw.
As always the dates for each of the rounds are as outlined on the NLD Age Grade Rugby Calendar which was circulated earlier in the year. If for any extenuating circumstances you wish to request the fixture to be moved then you must follow the below steps:
- Contact the NLD Office / Carol Badmin to request a potential date change.
- Contact your opposition & discuss the possibility of other options. NB if matches are going to be moved then they must be played before the original scheduled date.
- If no agreement can be reached and approved by the NLD Junior Competitions Organising Committee then the fixture will always default back to the original date set.
As always we will do our best to be flexible and supportive of all clubs requesting fixture changes in line with the above, however the NLD Junior Competitions Organising Committee will make the final decision as to if a date can be changed.
Please take the time to look through the attached very carefully and if you have any queries then don’t hesitate to get in touch with the NLD Office.
