Proposals from the RFU governance committee to conclude the season at professional and community level were ratified by the RFU Council, with standings calculated on a best playing record formula to maintain promotion and relegation.

And Weston have finished as runners-up in the South West Premier behind Barnstaple, who earn promotion.

Local rivals Hornets, meanwhile, are confirmed as champions of South West One and will do battle with their neighbours in 2020/21.
