The 2017–18 National League 1, known for sponsorship reasons as the SSE National League 1 is the ninth season of the third tier of the English rugby union system, since the professionalised format of the second tier RFU Championship was introduced; and is the 31st season since league rugby began in 1987.

Following defeat at Blackheath on 10 March, Fylde are the first team to be relegated.[1][2] A week later Coventry became the league champions with five games to go after beating Caldy away on the 17 March.[3] On 21 April Old Albanian became the second team to go down with a game to go, losing 21-24 away to Plymouth Albion.[4] The third and final relegation spot went to the taken by Hull Ionians who lost 21-38 away to champions Coventry on 28 April 2018 in front of a divisional record attendance of 3,758.[5] As champions, Coventry are promoted into the 2018–19 RFU Championship, while relegated sides Fylde and Hull Ionians drop to the 2018–19 National League 2 North, and Old Albanian into the 2018–19 National League 2 South.

Of further interest were a number of divisional records set or equalled during the course of the season. These included a record crowd (3,758 at Coventry) and record overall league average attendance (653), while Coventry's promotion meant they now had 3 tier titles (equal with Otley). Ampthill also equalled a more obscure record of four league draws previously achieved by both Wharfedale and Richmond.

Structure[edit]

The league consists of sixteen teams with all the teams playing each other on a home and away basis to make a total of thirty matches each. There is one promotion place with the champions promoted to the Greene King IPA Championship. There are usually three relegation places with the bottom three teams relegated to either National League 2 North or National League 2 South depending on the geographical location of the team.

Participating teams and locations[edit]

Twelve of the sixteen teams participated in the preceding season's competition. The 2016–17 champions, Hartpury College, were promoted to the 2017–18 RFU Championship, replacing London Welsh who went into liquidation, in the second half of the season, and ceased to exist as a professional team.[6] Due to London Welsh's liquidation only two teams (instead of the usual three) were relegated last season – Macclesfield and Blaydon – both of whom drop to the 2017–18 National League 2 North.

The promoted teams are Bishop's Stortford and Caldy, champions of the 2016–17 National League 2 South and 2016–17 National League 2 North respectively, and Old Elthamians who won the promotion play-off against Sale FC.[7][8][9] National League 1 is the highest level all three of these sides have ever reached.

Season records[edit]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The Rugby Paper reported an attendance of 1,653 while the NCA and Rugby Statbunker had an attendance of 1,453 for the game between Old Elthamians and Blackheath on 16 December 2017. From discussion with Old Elthamians chairman he says the Rugby Paper's version is accurate.
  2. ^ The Rugby Paper reported an attendance of 380 while the NCA and Rugby Statbunker had an attendance of 711 for the game between Esher and Ampthill on 13 January 2018. Given that the NCA is using an official figure from the club, and the Rugby Paper source tends to underestimate Esher's attendances quite drastically, The 711 figure seems more accurate.
