This is a new competition launched for the season 2017-18, to give a platform to the developing women's teams across Switzerland following a successful 2016-17 season.
The LNF-B is the swiss 2nd division women's rugby league and is aiming to support teams on their way to play full XV's competitive rugby, by giving them a flexible development option to prepare their players while letting them play as much as possible.
While the aim is to play XV's whenever both competing teams have enough players available, it is possible to drop down to lower numbers. The games are played in any case:
12-aside (no sanctions)
10-aside (no sanctions, opposition has to drop down to 10-aside)
7-aside (technical forfait)
less than 7 players present (technical forfait AND minus-point in the classification. A development game is played, the team with missing players needs to fill up their numbers to minimum 7)
The winner of the LNF-B will move up to the LNF-A for next season, if they by then meet the criteria to participate in a full XV-aside competition.
Participating teams in 2017-18: Alba Ladies, Basel Birds, Switzers Lady, Zug Freyjas
The LNF-B is an official competition and follows the 2017-18 FSR Regulations
