Green backgrounds are promotion places.
  1. ^ The creation of a new division 4 below this league for the next season would lead to a downsizing of the division from 17 teams to 10 resulting in much more relegation spots than usual.
  2. ^ 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.
