Hertfordshire deducted 4 points

1 year ago By Jeff Nicholas

Gloucestershire back in the race for Twickenham.

Hertfordshire have been deducted 4 points for fielding an ineligible player in their victory over Kent.
An RFU spokeswoman said: “The RFU County Championship Organising Committee have determined that Hertfordshire should forfeit all match points that they received from their win against Kent on 6 May 2017 for breaching County Championship Division 1 regulation D (1). This provides:
“A player who is Effectively Registered (as defined in RFU Regulation 14) for a Club playing at Level 3 or below as at the date of the 2016-17 Transfer Deadline is eligible to play in any tier of the Competition. A player who is Effectively Registered for a Club at Level 1 or Level 2 as at the date of the Transfer Deadline in the 2016-17 season is not eligible to play in any tier of the competition.

If Hertfordshires appeal (Thursday) is unsuccessful then the Duchy will require just 1 point to top the group and guarentee themselves a place at Twickenham. It could all come down to points difference and Cornwall have the edge in this department with +65 from their 2 matches some 49 points better than Gloucestershire.
With around 3,000 Cornish voices cheering them on at the REC you certainly would bet against them making it to Twickenham for the 5th successive season!
