Nemla Round Up

This weekend saw a number of big matches in the Northern Premiership with all of the top four playing one another. League leaders Stockport maintained their impressive 100% win ratio by beating fourth-placed Heaton Mersey (and current LTP student Kevin Albert) 13-5 meanwhile LTP students Doug Homan & Jovan Miller (2G, 1A) helped Poynton beat Cheadle 8-7 to move into third-place with a 4-2 record so far having already played Cheadle both home and away and Stockport away.With Poynton playing Stockport on the final day of the season, this could well be a fixture which has a huge say in the outcome of this year’s title race and will certainly be one to watch out for.

The only other game in the Northern Premiership in a weather-ravaged weekend was at Rochdale where the hosts lost 8-9 to their Lancashire rivals Brooklands with the winner coming in the last few seconds of the game – proving that there is no such things as a dull game in England!

In the Southern Premiership, Walcountian Blues hammered Bristol Bombers 19-4 to take themselves out of the bottom two and Cardiff Harlequins beat East Grinstead 6-4 to move up into 6th place.
