NLD Senior XV



The RFU County Championship is the longest standing competition run by the RFU, with a rich history spanning over 100 years. The County Championship consists of two competitions which are open to County Constituent Body’s full representative teams. NLD competes within the second division in the County Championship Shield.


The County Championship provides players with a unique opportunity to play representative rugby and players who shine in the competition can be selected to represent the England Counties XV.

The programme runs towards the end of each season with the teams involved divided geographically into pools. Each pool plays each other once, either home or away, with the top four teams progressing to the semi-finals. The finals are then played on hallowed Twickenham turf at the end of May.




For more information and details of how to get involved, contact the Squad Manager (TBC)
