Championship Rugby Update: Change to final round of the season and The Championship Cup


Round 22 – final round

The RFU has approved the move of Round 22 in the Championship to 2 April (originally 19 March).  This decision was taken due to the number of postponements caused by COVID-19 and the need to fulfil the remaining fixtures.


Details for rearranged fixtures and Rounds 18-22 can be seen on the Championship Rugby fixture page.  Specific dates and kick off times for Round 22 will be confirmed shortly.


The Championship Cup

The start date for The Championship Cup – the weekend of 9 April – has also been confirmed.  The draw, which took place yesterday (8 February), was based on the standings from Round 17.   As table-leaders, Ealing Trailfinders receive a bye into the quarter final.


In Round 1 teams play against one another, home and away.  The result determines entry into the quarter-final, the draw for this has also taken place – see below.
