A little later than usual, it’s time for another Six Points! We’re well over the halfway stage in most of AFL England’s leagues and certain teams are already looking forward to potential Grand Finals. Others will need to pull their socks up and get stuck in over the course of the last few rounds if they are to make it through to the finals.
Demons and Lions Lay Down Statements of Intent
If things continue the way they’re going, it’s highly likely there could be a rematch of the 2018 AFL London Women’s Premiership Grand Final after the Wandsworth Demons and North London Lions secured dominant wins over the weekend.
The Demons defeated the South East London Giants 61-0 to extend their unbeaten run, while the Lions bounced back from a draw against the Wildcats the week before to win away at the Wimbledon Hawks 58-0.
Lions Get Revenge on Opening Day Defeat
After losing away to the Wandsworth Demons by a single point on the opening day of the 2019 season, the North London Lions will have been eyeing up this rematch.
The Lions came into the season with a record of 2-2 but a two-point win saw them run out 5.14 (44) to 5.12 (42) winners to move up to third in the ladder.
Swans Win by Narrowest of Margins
Sometimes in order to win, you have to win by any means necessary. After a single goal helped the London Swans defeat the West London Wildcats by three points earlier in the AFL London Women’s Conference season, the rematch looked to be an equally tight affair.
And so it was, with the Swans edging a thriller by a single point to win 0.2 (2) to 0.1 (1) to extend their unbeaten run at the top of the ladder.
Sussex Swans Top the SEWARFL Ladder
The South England & Wales ladder is beginning to take shape after the opening few rounds and it’s the Sussex Swans who added two more wins on home soil.
Roos Get Their Season Back on Track
After back-to-back losses against the London Swans and the South London Demons – the latter by a single point – the Reading Kangaroos had gone from 2-0 to 2-2 and their season looked in danger of unravelling.
However, a 10.11 (71) to 2.3 (15) away to the Ealing Emus has their season back on track in an ultra-competitive AFL London Men’s Social division. After a bye this weekend, they face the Bounds Green Lions who currently sit second in the table.
Wolverines Leapfrog Rams
The tussle for the Grand Final spot in the Central & Northern England league rumbles on as the Wolverhampton Wolverines win over the Nottingham Scorpions saw them overtake the Huddersfield Rams in the ladder.
There was another win for the Manchester Mosquitoes who surely look to have done enough, but with the Wolverines and Rams facing off in the next round it looks like it’s all to play for with regards to who they’ll face!
