TOP OF TABLE CLASH


Oxford Cavaliers - 24 Gloucestershire Warriors - 0

The top two title battle didnt come about as the Warriors only travelled with 8 players, conceding the game with Oxford getting a 24-0 victory, two points and Gloucester being deducted two. This means the Cavaliers go 4 points ahead at the top of the table with only two games left of the league before the play offs.

The home side then played a 4 quarter match handing the travelling side players who were rotated throughout the game, with the Cavaliers given chance to try new combinations in what was no longer a must win scenario, it also allowed a large bench, with the cavs having a full squad of 20 to get some decent game time in which they may not have achieved had Gloucester travelled with a competitive squad. Rumours of the second place teams predicament were due to a combination of a fall out at the club and the final test match of the Lions vs Australia.

Next weekend sees the Cavaliers face Somerset away, who happened to beat Bristol away this weekend, a fixture the Oxford side managed to slip up on just a couple of weeks ago.
