Who will the Nuns be facing this season?

2 months ago By Huw Thomas

League opponents confirmed and pre-season information.

The RFU have finalised the make-up of the Nuns league for the 2018/19 season with 5 new sides in the league for the new competition.

Coming down from National 2 North are Luctonians, who we last played in 2011/12 in National 2, and Sheffield, who were promoted from this league in 2016/7, and from National 2 South are county neighbour Broadstreet, who won this division in 2016/17.

Promoted into the division are Syston, who defeated Dudley Kingswinford in the play-off, and Burton, who won Midlands 1 West.

With Doncaster and Sandbach remaining in the league it leaves us with 3 Northern teams who are level transferred into the division. Birmingham/Solihull who won the league have been transferred into National 2 South and Peterborough Lions defeated Hull to take their place in 2 North.
