Three wins on the trot now for the Revolution, with WR Andrew Morgan grabbing the game winning TD in the victory over Chester yesterday. A back-and-forth encounter, it’s advantage Shropshire in the NFC2 South. Ranked #5 in our Week Four Power Rankings, we can expect a shift this week.



Down 0-14 at home to one of the favourites for SFC2 East conference, the Stallions regrouped to storm back and win 23-14, holding on to a perfect record in the process. Now at 2-0, Wembley now face London Blitz B home and away with three weeks in between.



The Senators have taken to Division Two ‘ballin like a duck to water. Three games, three big wins so far for Gateshead. Against the upstart Morecambe Bay Storm – 2-0 entering the weekend – the Senators were relentless as they slammed 74 points on the rookie outfit in a 74-6 win.
