Just 300 points separate the top three clubs – Octavian Droobers, Harlequins and Wrekin, and there is tight battle betwwen Walton Chasers and Potteries OC too.
The points have been calculated after the first four events, and it’s looking like a close competition this year. Just 50 points separate Octavian Droobers and Harlequins at the top, and Wrekin, Potteries OC and Walton Chasers are separated by just 300 points.
