London 2 North West is an English rugby union league which is at the seventh tier of club rugby union in England and is made up of teams predominantly from north-west London and Hertfordshire. Promotion is usually to London 1 North with the league champions going up automatically and the runners up entering a promotion playoff against the league runners up from London 2 North East, however those clubs based in London rather than the Home Counties are sometimes promoted to London 1 South. Relegated teams typically drop into London 3 North West. Each year all clubs in the division also take part in the RFU Intermediate Cup - a level 7 national competition.

Notes

  1. ^ H.A.C. won the 2016-17 play-off but were denied promotion and the result overturned by the RFU due to H.A.C. fielding an ineligible player.
  2. ^ Uxbridge, Mill Hill, Tring, St Albans (2nd XV), Old Millhillians, Hampstead, Kingsburians, Letchworth Garden City, Chiswick and Hemel Hempstead were the relegated teams this season. This was due creation of a new division 4 below this league for the 2000-01 season which would lead to a downsizing of the division from 17 teams to 10 resulting in much more relegation spots than usual.
  3. ^ The division would be renamed London Division 2 North West for the next season and along with the whole national restructure of the league system by the RFU lead to mass changes at all levels.
  4. ^ League reduced from 12 to 11 after London Nigerian withdraw from RFU leagues.
  5. ^ The initial result of the 2016-17 playoff was overturned by the RFU after HAC were found guilty of fielding an ineligible player. This meant that South Woodham Ferrers were promoted instead.[39]
