Good Week/Bad Week – BUCS Week Eleven

BAD WEEK

Dishonourable mentions;

  • Defeats for NTU Renegades and Kingston Cougars confirmed their relegation to Division 1.
  • The revival was short-lived for Solent Redhawks, who were thumped 0-44 at Exeter.
  • One step closer to ‘imperfection’ for Manchester Tyrants, Worcester Royals, RHUL Bears, and Oxford Lancers following losses this weekend.

We don’t really like to put competing sides on both pages of GWBW, but the defeat to Napier Knights was marred by sideline antics from the home side, including Britball badboy Martin Punter, who was ejected from the game. Punter, you may remember, is currently on probation

 

bath-spa-bulldogs-lBATH SPA BULLDOGS

A torrid campaign for the Bulldogs comes to a close with a 0-40 home defeat to OBU. That’s the seventh straight shutout loss for Bath Spa, with all 8 points scored this season coming in the opener against Bournemouth Bobcats. Walkover win over FXU Tridents in 2015 aside, Bath Spa haven’t won a game in over 3 years…

 

Brighton Tsunami LBRIGHTON TSUNAMI

Relegation from the Premier to Division 2 was confirmed this weekend for the Tsunami following the 15-6 defeat at Reading. Brighton needed to win by 8+ points to overcome the head-to-head record and stand any chance of avoiding the drop, but the Knights inflicted the Tsunami’s seventh loss of the season.
