The fixtures for Division 1B of the Leinster League have been released, the league will commence on Sunday 29th September…
Fixtures for the Seconds League Division 1B have not been issued as the participants have yet to be confirmed. The composition of the Seconds League Division 1B will be known next week and when it has been finalised the fixtures will be circulated.
Occasionally games may have to be switched to a Saturday if there is a clash with a major home Leinster Heineken Cup or PRO12 game. Any such alterations will be announced in the immediate aftermath of the ERC or PRO12 pronouncement. If clubs subsequently wish to rearrange any of these games on the same weekend please contact your opposition and inform the Branch of the agreed alteration ASAP before such change can be sanctioned.
The winner of the Leinster League Division 1B will be automatically promoted to Division 1A and the team that finishes last will be relegated to Division 2A. The team that finishes second will playoff with the seventh-placed team in Division 1A and the team that finishes seventh will playoff with the runner up in Division 2A.
The fates of the winners and losers of these playoffs will be determined by the promotion to and/or relegation from the AIL.
If any game is postponed or cancelled the Leinster Branch will use the first available date to refix that game.
As usual the Second XV fixtures, when they are finalised, will be timed to kick off 90 minutes ahead of the J1 matches.
