The RFU folk who have been tasked with coming up with options for the Northern Leagues next season have come up with two options X and Y. Option Y appears to be if the Lancashire clubs come back in again. Level 6 would be split into 3 leagues. South West, North East and South East. These appear to be loose descriptions. Option X appears to be if the Lancashire Clubs do not come back in.
