My team owes Warwicks a drink or 2.West is Best 2 needed to match Kings Head or KJCA's results to stay up. My team lost, KJCA won, Kings Head were 3.5-2.5 up against Warwicks. And then we were saved :) :) :)

Does anyone believe that there is a non-zero probability that White Rose 2 will choose to play in Division 3 SOUTH rather than Division 3 North?

South venues are Daventry and Bedford rather than Reading, so a non-zero probability particularly if they field Yorkshire exiles.

Ian I think that means that Iceni1 may also go up next season to 3S but not Iceni2. Not sure whether you have an option of both Iceni's going into 3North.

Anyway a great battle in 4S this season. Which ought to be on 4S part but it is these type of rules that make it a bit more unclear than the football season & it's run in & play-offs etc.

I would have thought any team can enter 3 North, given that it's run as a Swiss. It shouldn't matter whether they are a new team or had previous experience in 4 South.

A number of the Iceni players are London area, in its broadest sense.

Why would WR2 choose to play down in the Midlands rather than Doncaster?

WR1 has people from a bunch of places, but WR2 is nearly all Yorkshire players.

More interesting to wonder whether they split up into 1 or 2 teams, or if/how many of their players get poached by Bradford DCA. My random guesses would be 1 and maybe one or two.
