Leeds RUFC have had confirmation this afternoon from the RFU that the potential deduction of 28 points will not happen.

The RFU Board had announced that Yorkshire Carnegie can remain a participant of the Greene King IPA Championship for the 2019-20 season but subject to the club satisfying certain conditions relating to the entering into of a Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA).

The insolvency practitioners supervising the Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA) entered into by Yorkshire Carnegie, Begbies Traynor, have provided confirmation to the RFU that 100% of the club’s creditors have either agreed to the terms of the CVA or been paid in full by third parties.

This information was received by the deadline of 9 August 2019, so as per RFU regulation 5.3 the RFU confirms that the club will not be subject to a deduction of 28 points for the 2019-20 Greene King IPA Championship season.

Commenting on the news, Managing Director Chris Gibson said, “This is great news and allows us to progress with our plans for next season. On behalf of everyone at the club, I would like to thank those who have supported the club through this difficult process and allowed us to continue. Our focus now is on building a side to compete in the Greene King IPA Championship and support the vision of our Director of Rugby Martyn Wood and Head Coach Joe Ford.”
