Worcester Cavaliers to play ten games in new-look A League

Worcester Cavaliers will play ten matches in a brand-new format for the 2017/18 Premiership Rugby A League campaign.

Instead of the usual five matches, teams in the North Pool will now play each other home and away, with the top two teams progressing to the competition’s semi-finals.

Meanwhile in the South Pool, there will be seven teams who will all play each other home or away, before the top five after that stage will play a further four games against each other, home or away, in a second-phase mini league.

The top two clubs following the second-phase competition will progress to the semi-finals.

The new format will see Warriors’ second-string outfit take on fellow North Pool sides Leicester Tigers, Newcastle Falcons, Northampton Wanderers, Sale Jets and Wasps.

Warriors Academy Manager Chim Gale said: “The new format is ideal in terms of providing opportunities for fringe and younger players.

“Over the past few seasons we’ve seen a number of young stars put their hands up for first-team selection and having more games will only provide more competition for places at the weekend and also help players gain valuable game-time.”

All five Worcester Cavaliers home fixtures are included in a 2017/18 Season Ticket. To book yours click here, call 01905 459309 or visit the Ticket Office.
