For some of the teams the hard work has been done in the fact they have gained promotion to the next level. That doesn’t mean that pride is till at stake and a National title up for grabs.
The Division 1 teams have still got all to play for as not only are they playing for their North/South divide titles it also means promotion to the “promised land” of the Premier Division next season.
Glasgow have arguably been the most consistent team in all of Division One this season and will start as favourites against an NTU side that has defied the odds to make it this far. NTU have won two very close and hard fought games against what on paper at least looked to be a game too far in their season. Can they go one step further and reach the National Final?
In the South we could have a high scoring game as Surrey seem to be scoring t will right now, 63 points in their two playoff games so far including a shutout of Kent. They face a very talented Swansea unit that will be out to prove that last year’s success was no fluke and they see this as their opportunity to claim their Premier place.

Promotion has already been secured for the four teams battling out their respective North and South finals in Division 2. Does that mean they won’t play hard in this final game of the season? I think we all know the answer to that question!
LJMU have been on a mission all year and they breezed through their semi-final last week with a shutout of Edinburgh Napier, they come up against a determined Manchester Tyrants team that have also played with a point to prove all season and this has the makings of an epic game with lots of points on the board.
Portsmouth are always a consistent team and they got past Plymouth last weekend with relative ease that may have shocked some outside of their Uni but the confidence has been on display every week. Likewise Oxford, who have come through a feisty division and then knock off Greenwich last time out. Both teams will have to up their game next season but this game will go some way in showing what they could be capable of come next September.
