Cup Final Report The indoor season has now finished with the Finals of the Cup Competitions taking place on Monday 9th March, with some close games.
In the Winners Competition the Semi Finals resulted in a win for Rowley LC A over Tallboats A 16-13 and Woodman MP A accounting for Bouncers 23-8. In the Final Woodman MP A won the first half 8-5 but Rowley came strong in the second half to wind 13-4 and therefore won 18-12 overall.
In the Supplementary Competition Cradley Sports beat Somers 17-13 losing the first half 6-9 and in the other semi final Wordsley Green got the better of Stourbridge 17-13. In the Final this was a game of two halves for at one stage Cradley Sports were 13-5 down but recovered losing the first half 15-11 and in the second half it was close throughout with Cradley Sports gradually catching Wordsley up to eventually win 22-19.
Prizes were presented by the League Chairman Wayne Berry who thanked all for taking part in the first Cup Competitions in recent years in which was an enjoyable evening.
I would like to thank all teams taking part this year and for the team of mat layers on a Monday morning, and also to Barry and Jenny Jones for the Cup results on the web site.

End of Season League Report The league programme finished with Division 1 winners being Show Ponies by some 10 points from Bouncers and Woodman MP A in third place just 1 point above Rowley LC A. Woodman MP A scored a decisive win over Show Ponies in the last game winning 28-10 and 6 points to gain the third place
In Division 2 it was a much different story for three clubs in contention for top spot - Somers, Nomads and Cradley Sports - with only 1 point separating them before the final game. Surprisingly Nomads only gained 1 point from Cradley Chain, Somers gaining no points from Tallboats B, leaving Cradley Sports who did best gaining 5 points from Tallboats B to top the table by 5 points.
