We are now nine weeks completed and hurtling towards double-digit game weeks played. We have had forfeits, folds, nailbiters, upsets, and dominating wins and yet even now there is still plenty to learn each week. So once again let’s look at what we learned this week.

Knights Put Lincolnshire To The Sword

The Northants Knights have come into the league with a bang, an incredible set-up, slick field, good uniforms and their performances on the field have looked even better than all the rest. They continued those displays as they ripped apart Division 2 stalwarts, the Lincolnshire Bombers. Whilst it is fair to say the Bombers have really struggled this year, the Knights showed them no mercy running out 52-0 Winners.

Falcons Soar Over Struggling Steelers

Sandwell Steelers certainly looked improved this week and as we have eluded to there is still a massive transition period going on there. Leicester Falcons however didn’t rest on their laurels as they set about making sure there would be no slip-ups, taking a comfortable 37-14 victory.

Kent Remain Exiled From The Win Column

This one hurts. The London Olympians not only handed Kent Exiles their 5th straight loss this week, they also stopped me from having a perfect predictions week with Kent being my only wrong pick. Having looked at how the teams had played in the score column, it looked for all the world that the Exiles would get their first win. Now they look to the return fixture as their last chance to secure a victory in 2021.

Spartans Leave Sabres Toothless

The Essex Spartans will have been left seething after their loss in the first matchup with the East Essex Sabres and determined to put it right this time around. They did just that as they dominated from the start possibly returning the opening kick off for a Touchdown (someone could perhaps clarify). They ran out 22-0 winners and will feel much better to have put that game right.

Monarchs Return To Winning Ways

The Monarchs started the season strong and suffering a heavy loss to the Apache came as a bit of a shock. Fortunately, the Cornwall side didn’t let that spiral by returning to winning ways in their next game. They ran out 20-2 winners against the Jurassic Coast Raptors.

Rushmoor Wreck Sorry Sussex

It’s well documented how much the Sussex Thunder have struggled in 2021, reports even suggested Coach Ellis nearly took to the field this Sunday to assist with player numbers. Very worrying news for such a well-established side. The Rushmoor Knights got battered by Bournemouth in their last game in what was a major shock defeat, mostly due to the swing from their first matchup victory over the same side. No mistakes were made by Rushmoor this week however as they turned up the heat on the Thunder team, winning 42-7

Wolves Tame The Tigers

After their Week 1 loss to the East Kilbride Pirates, the Edinburgh Wolves will have been desperate to put things last week as they took on old foe the Glasgow Tigers at their home opener. They did absolutely that and certainly earned their stripes as they went on to win by an untroubled 44-0.

Cheetahs Block Blitz B

After their Week 1 loss, the Hertfordshire Cheetahs have continued to rise as we anticipated they would before the start of the season. The London Blitz B have shown themselves as more than just a team making up the numbers in the great Thames Valley Division. But the Cheetahs were in no mood for an upset as they went on to win 14-0, forcing numerous turnovers from the Blitz B Quarterback.

Humber Hunt Down Winning Season

Humber Warhawks whilst not flashy have really come good this season, and they managed to secure yet another victory on Sunday, against the Knottingley Raiders. That takes the win total up to 4, and now move to just one win away from securing a winning record. In what would be a great marker for the Warhawks.

Mustangs Offence Up To A Gallop

The Doncaster Mustangs are really rolling now, after struggling in their first two games, they have picked up massively and started scoring points for fun. This week’s victim was the Leeds Bobcats, as the Doncaster side hit the 50-Burger mark. They will be slightly concerned about the 21 points they gave up, but that Offence is really going now.

Colchester Conquer Cardinals

Colchester Gladiators move to 3-2 with their win over the Ipswich Cardinals. No time to rest though as they meet again this week, with the Gladiators looking to secure at minimum a 0.500 season. A great sign of recovery after the difficulties of 2019. 3 wins on the bounce now for the Colchester side with 3 games to go against the 3 opponents they have beaten so far.
