WARRINGTON RUFC have had their relegation confirmed.

When the North One West season ground to a halt on March 14 along with the rest of the rugby union action, Andy Roberts' side were sitting second from bottom in the table having won only three of their 20 games.

Unlike in football where the National League System campaigns have been deleted from the records with no promotion or relegation taking place, the Rugby Football Union decided to complete the season using a calculation to predict final finishing positions.

As a result of that Warrington, who were six points clear of bottom side Keswick but 10 points adrift of next worst Bowdon, will drop down to Level 7 for season 2020-21.

In North Two West next season, they will have company from fellow relegated outfit Keswick and the likes of Rochdale, Leigh, Anselmians, Aspatria, Southport, Aspull, Tarleton, De La Salle, Winnington Park and Bolton.

An RFU statement reads: "Following the early end of the rugby season in England as a result of Covid-19, The Rugby Football Union has announced the final league positions.

"Proposals from the RFU governance committee to conclude the season for those leagues at both professional and community level were ratified by the RFU Council.

"It was agreed that final standings for the men’s and women’s community game would be calculated on a best playing record formula maintaining promotion and relegation for those leagues."
