Playing Rugby in National League 3 Midlands
Prior to the Launch of National League 3 Midlands the league was formally known as Midlands 1 and is the highest level (RFU level 5) regional club Rugby Union league for teams based around the middle of England. National League 3 Midlands this season will see clubs travel as far North as Sandbach and as far South as Sheffield so covering a larger area than in previous seasons. Clubs promoted from National League III midlands can predominantly play in either National League 2 North or occasionally National League 2 South. Last season saw Hinckley promoted to National League 2 North.
