The club has just been informed that the last games of the regular season will be the weekend of 1st/2nd September. It had been thought that the season might have to be extended as several teams were behind with the number of games played due to heavy rain causing postponements at the start of the season. Feedback from the clubs was that, for the credibility of the competition, teams should work to complete fixtures by the original end of regular season date weekend of the 1st/2nd September and retain the play off dates as were agreed prior to the start of the season. This means that it is possible that not all of these teams fixtures can be played in the time left.
If this is what happens, then the teams who have not completed all their games will have their final positions decided on a percentage basis. Should teams finish on an equal percentage level (to one decimal point) a countback system would then take into account the number of bonus points. The league organisers say that it is hoped that teams will make every endeavour to complete all their scheduled and outstanding fixtures. However, teams who fail to complete scheduled fixture will be deemed to have lost that match 24 – 0, and teams with outstanding fixtures must evidence that they have made every effort to rearrange and complete these matches.
Here at St Albans we have not missed one game this season, so we have four games left in the four weeks remaining. However the three teams under us, Bramley, Kippax and South Wales have to try and play 7 games in four weeks. All we can do is go out and win as many of our last four games as we can, and try and finish in the play off positions, then it's up to the competition organisers to sort out the positions of the teams that unfortunately won't be able to complete all of their fixtures.
