County Championship Shield

County Championship Shield

The County Championship Shield was formed in 2008 and originally played for by second tier teams in the RFU County Championship. The top eight counties were split into two regions of four teams, north and south, and played for the Bill Beaumont Cup. The same format was used for the Shield.

From 2010 the County Championship Shield involves counties that are only able to select players from clubs at level five and below. The 11 teams involved are divided geographically into three pools and play each other once either home or away with the top teams in each pool and the runner up with the best record, progressing to the semi finals.[1]
