RUGBY UNION: Get out clause.

MIDLANDS clubs have been given the option to postpone league matches scheduled for this Saturday so they can watch the World Cup final between England and Australia on television.

Clubs with distances to travel were afraid that they might miss England's biggest game since they reached the 1991 World Cup final, but the RFU have given league secretaries across the region permission to allow postponements.

David Robins, the chairman of the Midlands Leagues organising committee said: "Permission to postpone matches must be made to the individual league secretaries.

"If both clubs are in agreement the matches will be postponed. If there is not agreement from both clubs, then the matches must go ahead as planned this Saturday."

Any rearranged league games must be played on the first available Saturday when neither club is involved in league or RFU Cup matches.

Trinity Guild and Earlsdon have postponed their Midlands Four West (South) game at Rowley Road by 24 hours and will now play on Sunday. Guild's vice- presidents lunch, planned for Saturday, has been cancelled.
