By clicking on the team name it will show the team contacts we have for each team. It is required that we have two contacts per team - Name, Postion, Mobile and Email. Please supply any missing information to Steve Cullen by 10th August 2017. This information will be used by the League Administrators to contact the teams, teams to contact each other - and for your County to contact you regarding County selection and other relevant information.
Both teams should email the results within 24 hours of the game taking place to both Janette Tichband and Steve Cullen (details below). The sender should provide a breakdown of the scores, e.g.
Team A 27 (4T, 2C, 1) v Team B 20 (4T)
In this example, Team A would get 4 points for the win and a bonus point for 4 tries.
Team B would get a bonus point for 4 tries and 1 bonus point for losing by 7 or less.
Can the sender also clearly state their name, club, age group and division.
For the 2017/18 season, the Oxon, Bucks and Berks U16s will continue due to its success at delivering appropriate competition across the three counties. The League will be split into 3 Divisions as decided by the three county bodies. The OB&B Regulations were amended from 2014/15 from the BYL ones to prevent too many A team players turning out for B team fixtures. Please take note of Regulation 7.4. Please note, no under-age players are allowed ito play in any of these divisions.
There are 10 dates reserved for OBB U16s that take precedence and will include reserve dates for weather etc.
There will be Cups for the winners of all three Divisions.
Howard Thomas, Youth Chairman, is responsible for the Bucks & Berks U16s League. The role encompasses reviewing the structure of these leagues with the clubs and liaising with his counterparts in Oxfordshire RFU and Buckinghamshire RFU.
