Tribute Western Counties West is an English, level seven, rugby union league for clubs based in the south-west of England; mainly Cornwall, Devon and Somerset. The champions are promoted to Tribute South West 1 West and the runner-up plays the second team in Tribute Western Counties North, with the winning team also gaining promotion. The number of teams relegated depends on feedback following promotion and relegation in the leagues above, but is usually two or three to Tribute Cornwall/Devon. The current champions are Okehampton who won this league for the second time; their last title was in 1996–97. Kingsbridge beat Keynsham 16 – 10 in the promotion play-off and will join Okehampton in Tribute South West 1 next season.

Participating teams and location[edit]

The 2016–17 Tribute Western Counties West League consists of fourteen teams; seven from Devon, five from Cornwall and two from Somerset. The season starts on 3 September 2016 and is due to be completed on 22 April 2015. Ten of the fourteen teams participated in last season's competition, the 2015–16 champions, Okehampton were promoted to Tribute South West 1 West, along with the play-off winners Kingsbridge. Two Cornish teams, Penryn and Saltash were relegated to Tribute Cornwall/Devon League and were replaced by Bude (champions) and St Ives (runner-up).

Western Counties honours[edit]

In the first season of the English rugby union league pyramid, sponsored by Courage, there was ten, tier seven leagues. The Western Counties League was for teams based in the south-west of England from Bristol, Cornwall, Devon, Gloucester and Somerset. Each team played one match against each of the other teams with the winning team awarded two points, and there was one point for each team in a drawn match.[8] This system prevailed for five seasons, and in 1992–93 the number of teams increased from eleven to thirteen. The following season Western Counties League was renamed Courage South West 2 League, and three seasons later in 1996–97 a major reorganisation occurred with South West 2 being split into two regional leagues:[9]

  1. Courage Western Counties North consisted of sixteen teams based in Bristol, Gloucestershire and Somerset, and each team continued to play the others once
  2. Courage Western Counties West consisted of eleven teams based in Cornwall, Devon and Somerset, and each team played the other twice.
