The week turns around quickly and so we are already staring down at the third full week of BAFA action and even though the big guns of the Premier Divisions are resting we still have some cracking games. For some it’s their first outing of the year, others will be looking to build on a good start, more will be for their first win.
Edinburgh start their season on the road at Gateshead, and Nottingham aim to stay unbeaten at an even Ouse Valley. One of the games that really appeal this weekend though is the Bury Saints hosting the Solent Thrashers. The Saints are one of the huge success stories of recent times and will be all out to put another marker down.
Across Conference 2 there are some intriguing matches. Northumberland and Glasgow are both 1-0 when they meet. Leeds are 2-0 already and go to 0-1 Walney hoping to maintain that good start. Shropshire entertain Leicester, it’s the Falcons first outing of the campaign.
Bristol Apache v Oxford Saints is a huge matchup early in the season and could have implications for the standings way down the line. Swindon are 1-0 going to Torbay, and a win will keep them level with the Apache/Saints winner.
Elsewhere we have the Renegades and Bobcats battling it out for the right to remain unbeaten after 2 games, whereas the Pumas and Conquerors have the chance to get their first W of the year when they clash. London Hornets welcome Essex in a game that could prove to be entertaining.
