LEINSTER METRO LEAGUE SEASON 2020-2021
The Leinster Branch has released the make-up of the Metro Leagues for Season 2020-2021.
From a St. Mary’s College RFC perspective, we will have teams in Division 1, 3, 5 & 9.
METRO LEAGUE DIVISION 1 – St Mary’s College J1, UCD, Lansdowne, Terenure College,
Clontarf, Dublin University, Old Belvedere & Old Wesley.
METRO LEAGUE DIVISION 3 – St Mary’s College J2, Wanderers, Navan,
Enniscorthy, Malahide, Tullamore, Old Belvedere & Terenure College.
METRO LEAGUE DIVISION 5 – St Mary’s College J3, CYM, Old Belvedere, MU Barnhall, Wanderers & Lansdowne.
METRO LEAGUE DIVISION 9 – St Mary’s College J4, Dublin University, AIB, Malahide, Clontarf,
Newbridge, Tallaght & Clondalkin.
The top three divisions, 1, 2 and 3 will be played in the New Year, and over one series of fixtures (no home and away) as the 24 teams are playing in one-off per-Christmas competitions this season which was brought about by the restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Fixtures for the Metro League will be released shortly.
The J1’s fixtures for the Pre-Christmas League will mirror the 1st XV’s fixtures in the Leinster Conference 1.
J2 League – Pre-Christmas League:
J2 teams in the Metro League have been put in a pre-Christmas competition which is being run in parallel with the Energia Conference Series.
There are six J2 teams taking part – St Mary’s College J2, Clontarf, Lansdowne, Old Belvedere, Old Wesley & Terenure. They will play each other once in the pre-Christmas league with all teams then going into playoffs as outlined in the fixture list below.
The default day for the fixtures is Sunday but as many as possible have been set up to match up with the Energia Conference Series so that clubs might organise big rugby days.
