Matches can be played on any day in the week leading up to and including the Sunday date detailed below (U18 games involving Somerset League sides to be played on the Saturday before); it is up to both teams to arrange the match prior to this date. Should ground or weather conditions prevent the match being played on the specified date then the weather dates (1 per round) will be used by prior arrangement with the Committee. If a match is not played on the specified dates for any reason, then the Committee will select the team to progress to the next round.

 

If a match is not played on the specified date for any reason then the Committee will select the team to progress to the next round.

 

Rule Change

 

The following rule has been removed :

10.2.If ground or weather conditions prevent a match being played at the grounds of either Club, (or neutral venue) it may be re-scheduled by agreement between the two Clubs and the Divisional Organiser or RFU Rugby Events & Competitions Department, dependent on the stage of the Competition. In the event of the Clubs being unable to agree to a revised date, the Divisional Organiser or RFU Rugby Events & Competitions Department may specify the date on which the match is to be played or award the match to one side or the other, dependant on the circumstances of the postponement. A rescheduled match must be played before the due date of the next round of the Competition.

 

Replaced with:

10.2.If ground or weather conditions prevent a match being played at the grounds of either Club, (or neutral venue) then the Divisional Organiser or RFU Rugby Events & Competitions Department will advise that the match will be played on the relevant weather date. If the match cannot be played on the weather date then the Divisional Organiser or RFU Rugby Events & Competitions Department will select the team to progress at random. In the event of this ocurring the home or away team in the subsequent round will also be selected at random.

 

 

For the quarter-final and semi-final games, the Home team will be the team that had the greatest winning margin from the previous round. If this is equal then the home team will be selected by coin toss / draw by the commitee.

 


In the interests of all parties if during a match one team is leading by at least 50 points then the game should finish irrespective of the time played. The home team for the next round, should both winning teams from the prior round have scored 50 points or more will be the team that has conceeded the fewest points, should this be equal then the home team will be selected by a draw undertaken by the cup committee.

All teams will submit a list of registered players by 20th September either by post or email, and no additional players can be added to the squad after this date. Any team found to be playing none eligible players will forfeit and be removed from the competition.

 

 

 

The dates above are the last dates the matches can be played on, it is up to both teams to agree a date prior to this date. If neither team can agree a date then both teams will forfeit. The only exception to playing a match after the prescribed last date will be exceptional weather and this must be agreed by the Cup Committee prior to the game being delayed.
 
For the U18 Somerset cup competition only - any match (other than the final) that includes a team that participates in the Somerset U18 Saturday league will be played on the saturday irrespective of the home or away status of the Somerset U18 Saturday league team.
 
 

It is up to the home team to organise a suitably qualified referee apart from the final.

The winning team responsible for getting the trophy engraved and must return it by 1st April. If the team fails to return the trophy then they will be responisble for providing an equivelent alternative at their own cost.

All results to be submitted initially by text to 07487 541893 within 24 hours of the match being played. All signed result sheets must be submitted by the winning team with 5 days of the match either by Post or scanned and email. Any result sheet not received within the prescribed time will result in forfeit.
 
The Somerset cup is the premier competition in Somerset and takes priority over all other League and Cup competitions apart from National games, any team choosing to play any other game in preference to a Somerset Cup game will forfeit.
