League Cup Rules for the Midlands Reserve Leagues:

Where appropriate the published league rules will apply.

  • All games to be played in accordance with the Laws of the game as laid down by the Rugby Football Union (RFU). 
  • Cup matches to use Society Referees, home team to arrange.
  • Open draws to be made prior to each round with the first club drawn being the home side.
  • A maximum of 5 (Five) NOMINATED replacements will be allowed in any match. At least one front row replacement should be available either on the bench or field of play at the start of the game. This ensures that the game does not immediately go to uncontested at the first injury to a front row. Rolling substitutes are allowed with 8 changes in total within the game. We expect clubs to field up to 5 subs but if both clubs agree BEFORE THE AWAY TEAM TRAVEL that they wish to have more then this is ok as long as the League Sec is informed beforehand
  • In the event of a tie after 10mins each way extra time, the team with most tries progresses, if tries are equal then the away team progress. 
  • In the final if the result is tied and tries are equal then the team who scored the first points in the match is declared the winner.
  • If the cup match is played as a double header with the corresponding league match there will be no extra time and the team with the most tries is declared the winner, if equal on tries the away team progresses. If the venue of the game has been reversed the team originally classed as the away side remains the away side
  • Results should be emailed to and to
  • See results, fixtures and copies of rules.
  • If a team is removed from the league their cup result will stand
