The 1992–93 English Premiership, (known as the Courage League for sponsorship reasons) was the sixth season of top flight rugby union in England. Each team played each other once. Bath were the champions, beating Wasps on points difference. Due to a restructuring that would reduce the league from 13 to 10 teams, four clubs were relegated; London Scottish, Saracens, West Hartlepool and Rugby Lions.[1]
