All teams have played league games in the last couple of weeks. Warwick University have challenged 4 different teams and taken a win from their game against UOB 5s.
Birmingham Panthers have continued their winning streak, beating Warwick 29:7 to maintain their run of 10 wins from 10 games this season.
As the league currently stands, Birmingham Panthers are top, followed by UOB 2,3 and 4s in that order. Rounding off the league table are Warwick, City 3 and UOB 5, but with 10 games left this season, there is everything to play for.
The last couple of months have seen great successes for our region’s University teams competing in BUCS. The University of Birmingham 1st team and University of Warwick team both qualified for National Championships; UOB 2s qualified for Trophy and UOB 3s and 4s are both competing at Plate this coming weekend. Best of luck to all of these teams at their respective competitions!
Our final league week saw the clash of fellow club teams, the University of Birmingham 4s versus the 2s. In a hardly fought game, the 2s came out on top winning 23-2 at the final whistle.
We also saw UoB 1s, 2s, 3s and 4s competing at BUCS Preliminaries, and what an amazing result they secured! The 1s came 1st, 2s 2nd, and 3s came 4th, meaning they have all secured a place at Regionals. The 4s also did well coming 7th overall, which will take them onto Southerns with a chance to go through to Plate! Well done to all team, fantastic result for a team from the West Midlands, and we look forward to hearing about the results from Regionals and Southerns.
