Each regional pool will play round robin fixtures from 3 March to 17 March. Following completion of these fixtures the draws for the Sarah Beaney Cup, Women’s Plate and Women’s Bowl Preliminary Rounds will be made with these fixtures taking place on 31 March.

The first placed teams in each pool will enter the Sarah Beaney Cup, second place will enter the Women’s Plate and the third and fourth placed teams will enter the Women’s Bowl.

The process to confirm all League and Cup competition rules and regulations is currently underway. Clubs have been invited to review and comment on these draft rules.

The final League and Cup Competition rules and regulations will be shared with clubs upon completion of this process ahead of the competition commencing.

Head of Girls’ and Women’s rugby Gemma Fay said, “Thank you to all of the clubs and stakeholders involvement in the consultation period for the League and Cup Competitions. We appreciate the continued support in the development of the women’s game in Scotland. We believe that this new format will provide for an exciting start to 2019 and we are looking forward to the first fixtures."
