Jostling for position in National One and gripping drama in National Two East sets the tone for the next month in tiers three and four.
National 2, the fourth tier of English rugby, is split into the opposing leagues – National Two North and National Two West and National Two East - with the standard of each exceptionally high. Many of the top clubs could easily compete in National 1. The budgets and crowds are not as large, but the spectacle for fans is excellent.
Talking Rugby Union brings you all of the results and reaction from the leagues, with highlighted match reports and features for big games plus we are also partnered with National League Rugby.
