1986 - Rugby Union Leagues - Just before it all started

What we know about this image :

From the late 70s change was in the air in Rugby with Leagues being talked about to replace the friendly match and Cup tie system that was the status quo in England. Merit Tables were a form of answer from the outset and the Junior Clubs system (which was swept away with the onset of Leagues) ran their own inter-County Merit Table until the formal Leagues came into being, winners taking the S & N Shield.
