As of this year hangzhou will participate in a nationwide trophy, organised predominantly by ourselves.
The competition will feature 15/16 teams playing 15 a side rugby, how the game was meant to be played.
The competition will first by divided into leagues in their own areas.
- Beijing Devils
- Beijing Aardvarks
- Beijing Brothers
- NongDa agricultural university
Each league will play at an ordinary league structure and by Chinese new year will have a 1st 2nd 3rd and 4th place team.
The top two in each league will then go into the quarter finals of a knockout competition. and the bottom two in league will enter a separate knockout competition. Giving every team a better chance to win.
This is more or less a trial year, and also a very good chance for Hangzhou to bring home some silverwear!
