Sapphire Series 2018

The 2018 National Championship is underway!

The 2018 Sapphire Series will name the Women's National Champion for 2017 - will we see a fifth straight title from the ever-dominant Birmingham Lions, as the 7-on-7 format of Division One returns for a second year?

What can we expect from the new Division 2A? Where we see six teams take their first strides into 7-v-7 balling, an exciting expansion on the number of teams playing this format in previous years!

And then in 2B, we see the continuation of the traditional 5-on-5 game in a four-team, national conference, which includes newcomers to Sapphire for 2018, the Kent Exiles!

With a tightly packed schedule, beginning 3 February and culminating in National Finals tournaments on 17 March, this is the largest and likely most hotly contested Sapphire Series to date!
