"Kick-off times in
January and February, 2013.
We have noted
recently that the Eastern Counties R U 2012-13 Handbook sets out that
matches in November, December, January and February this season should kick
off at 2.00 pm. There seems to have been some confusion amongst ECRU
affiliated clubs on this.
that Greene King games between ECRU-affiliated clubs should kick-off at 2.00
pm if possible - though bear in mind that you will need to confirm this in
advance with the referee.
Home GK games
for ECRU affiliated clubs against Herts, Essex and East Midlands clubs
should also kick off at 2.00 pm provided that this
has been agreed in advance with the visiting team, otherwise 2.15 pm
(January) and 2.30 pm (February) as in previous seasons.
times for games between Herts/Essex/East Midlands clubs should be as in

This site is provided for the Rugby Clubs, Teams and Players involved with the
Greene King Country Clubs Merit
Table and Cup Competition.
The Greene King Country Rugby Clubs Competition
This started as a small merit table competition in 1997.
Several local clubs were concerned that their lower XV games were being
called off more often, frequently at the last minute.
Players were becoming frustrated and losing interest. Some were leaving
or finding other ways of spending Saturday afternoons!
There was also an unfortunate knock-on effect on Saturday bar takings!
In the first season two tables
were set up (at 4th and 5th team playing level for the
larger clubs), named Premiere and Deuxieme, and the success of this idea was
soon proved. A Super Premiere
(3rd XV) level was added later and, as other clubs and teams joined,
the original Premiere and Deuxieme tables were split into two parts (Nord and
Sud) geographically. Last season
(2005-06) a third Deuxieme table was created (Centrale) to cater for the
increased number of teams wishing to join this level of competition. There are now
Six tables and the whole competition has full RFU recognition.
Greene King first agreed to sponsor the competition, under the name
of the “Greene King Country” Rugby Clubs Competition, in the 1999-2000
season. We are very pleased that
they have continued this sponsorship each season since then.
2000 the competition was extended to run with a full suggested home and away
fixture list for each table.
There are two trophies for each table – one for the team winning the
table with the highest number of points and a second for the team finishing in
the runners up spot.
In the same season a Deuxieme Knock out Cup competition was introduced – with all first round games
being Nord v Sud - plus a Plate competition for first round losers.
A Super Premiere Cup was started 2001-2002, and a Premiere Cup and Plate
(together with a Super Premier Plate) has run from 2002-03 and last season teams
from the Centrale table were integrated into the first round Deuxieme
