Community Knock Out Competition Structure

The competition is open to entry from any Unit rugby team that is not already registered to compete in another ARU competition league, i.e the ARU Premiership or Championship competitions.

Current rules and regulations can be found on the ARU Unit Rugby Rules & Regulations page.

The overall format of fixtures is as follows;

  • 3 x competitive fixtures (ie you will drop down the competitions if you lose your first or second game).
  • Potentially 5-6 games if you make the Finals
  • Semi-finals: 4 May 21
  • Finals: 11 May 21
  • Will require travel – to ensure fairness and ‘randomness of draw’, there will be no regional draw for the 1st round. The only exception is GRIFFINS & PILGRIMS, who due to exceptional circumstances, will play their first 3 fixtures at home.
  • 1st round fixtures to be played by NLT 7 Oct 21.
