Great show from Mark subbing in to get MM1 over the line :)

I'd be really very surprised if MM1 don't get at least one promotion place from here. Even if you only do 3/5 (surely?) the others will need 4.5-5/5 to go past. One team is possible, two really not likely.

Second place looks to be very open indeed.

Jorvik just missing 2 wins in a weekend again. Apparently never managed it.

Presumably round 7 is MM1 v Hounds & Bears with Manx v 3Cs 2 and Gonzaga v SoA B or Jorvik

Eh gads. Are they actually going to use it all, I wonder?

Suspect they'll likely need to win all their remaining matches from here for promotion, as Gonzaga may very well do that. Manx are currently slightly behind on game points right now.

Who knows

Hounds & bears are certainly capable of giving anyone a hard time, depending on what team they can get out; 3Cs 2 similarly

They already played in round one!
Hard to see MM1 failing to qualify with them having already beaten the four teams just below, and MM2 as one of their likely opponents on the final weekend.
