Senior Men’s D2 & D3 Competitions

Please find below the schedules for D2 & D3 Men’s Rugby. The FRRA uses Ruggerfest as a development weekend, and thus it is bye date for all clubs as there are no refs available. These schedules were based upon feedback from clubs per surveys previously posted to this page and special requests were accommodated as best as possible.

  8. I think for options 1 & 2 you have the ability to move matches into December (for those re-schedules early in the season), you can move matches to earlier in January for those reschedules needed mid-season and into the bye week for those late in the season (or teams could schedule Ruggerfest weekend if refs society approves). If there is a specific weekend a club needs off, it can likely be accommodated before the schedules go out. What are reasons for reschedules mid-season besides extreme weather?

  9. I vote for D3 – Option 2, although I would like to see the first bye moved up to week 3, so it would be 2 games, a bye and then 2 more games before the next bye.

  10. One suggestion I would like to make would be to have at least one open weekend (all teams) somewhere in the schedule to allow for any makeup games. There is one open weekend before the semifinals, but I would guess that is intended for a week off before playoff competition.

    The bye weeks are great but cannot be used for a makeup when you are the only team off that weekend and all other teams are scheduled.

    If there were to be an open weekend, I would think it should also be closer to the end of the regular season schedule to allow for scenerios and conflicts to play out.

    One thought for the DII schedule would be to sort of combine option 1 and 2 by bumping up option 1 by a week for the first match weekend of 2014 (start Jan 18) and putting an open weeknd in somewhere after that. Or something similar to this.

  11. If I had to vote it be Option 2 for Division 2 for Boca Raton RFC.
    We do not have a D-3 side. Not enough players. but carry have a b-side
    which all teams should start to have again. Back in the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s it
    was a necessity for all teams to play two games.

  12. I don’t like all 3 options. Play 3 weekends in November. Off for thanksgiving day weekend
    Play for first two weeks in December (anything later in December messes with Christmas and Hannakuh). We found that out years ago.

  13. Not to screw up your voting forum here, but is there somewhere we should direct constructive comments/suggestions? Or can we do that here?
