WR2 beat Shrops narrowly, and will go up with MM2 after the win today (unless I'm missing something obvious) :D

Looks right to me :) Job done for WR2, great effort from MM2!

Amusing to see how high Jorvik can end up - the draw really did end up very kind this weekend! Which was utterly the right thing to do of course.

So it seems MM1 have been relegated

Yes, unfortunately that will mean MM1 staying in Div 2 and MM2 staying in Div 3N

Surprising to me, I thought they would make the promotion pool.

Looks like MM1 came up a bit short vs their strongest potential teams. Plenty of depth in the squad but not that much of it is 2200+.

I guess you can always relegate many of the bottom boards from MM1 to MM2 and move the MM2 ones up :)

Jorvik flying amusingly high in the end.

I you will find that MM1 in the northern league will be the top 6 players (albeit not breaching the 80 point rule) if they want to do that, thereafter the next 8 will be in the second team in Div 2

Or you create a totally separate squad for the second team who are unique to that team only

I suspect it will just be the status quo and MM2 will still be in the 3N league
