Haven't seen this posted elsewhere?
Been discussed in a few places especially the AIL thread considering its impact on the top divisions for the open weeks of the season
Had heard a comp was being set up but didn’t know the details. Good to see it progressing. Anyone know why the Scots pulled out? I believe this was meant to include them as well.
They’re playing in a seperate competition but expected to rejoin in future
Is this replacing the B&I or additional?
