This has to be an absolute shock and l think this is the very first time that l have ever done the table on the same day as the results!!! So enjoy this rarity!!

After last weeks easier predictions this week was a whole lot tougher!

Well first massive congratulations to CambridgeClap for the surprise of the day with what looks like a hard earned win by a single point away at Ampthill.

And also congratulation to Bishops StortfordClap who l have already mentioned are surprising a number of teams this year. They won a nail biting very tight contest away at against Birmingham Moseley who l think many are surprised how poor their to the season has been.

Again probably say the Old ElthamiansClap performance away at Plymouth was probably the performance of the day as very few teams get anything playing there.

And congratulations to Hull IonianClap for picking up their 2nd win of the season at home to bottom team Fylde.

And of course massive congratulation to ClubClap in the game of the day beating Darlington Mowden Park at home

So no change at the very top with CoventryClap winning well away at Loughborough Student but now Blackheath have moved to joint 2nd place with Plymouth..

Well onto the Prediction league..
Well with no one predicting a Cambridge win, a Plymouth OE draw and a few getting the Bishop Stortford away win meant that we had a real mixed bag of scores.

Well it had to happen... Finally we have a new leader. Fat AlbertClap is our new leader, leading by 3 points from ever dangerous Bullwhip GriffenClap with previous leaders SilverfishClap a further point behind.

High score of the week go to Sedge TigerStar with a very good score of 25.

High climber of the week is Local PersonClap climbing 11 places from 25th to 14th.

Low score of the week goes to Pen15Dead, Front5Dead and Moody BluesDead with an OK score of 9.

Now onto next weeks games.

Game of the weekend has to be Darlington Mowden Park v Plymouth. Darlington have had an impressive start to the season but have picked up 2 defeats recently and one against the only team they have played in the top 5. Plymouth have only suffered one defeat and only by a solitary point to Club in the first game of the season away but did get held at home last week by Old Elthamians. So this is not easy one to call but one feels that Plymouth might just have the edge.

Cambridge v Coventry to me is a very interesting game. Cambridge had a very impressive away at Ampthill the previous week and did run Plymouth close away. They have also not suffered any big defeats this season (yet) so will be interesting to see how they fare against high scoring Coventry who did get run close by Old Albanians so who knows what might happen here...

What a special Sunday surprise SS. Unexpected and a double bonus given the quite dramatic events on the Ampthill hillside.You cannot write such drama.A phenomenal defence from Cambridge against the first half gale. Ampthill scored early under the posts and threatened a try every 10 minutes.That there were no more and not a sniff of a 4 try bonus point says everything about the Cambridge defence. One south seas onslaught after another only to break away and threaten the Ampthill line - sub tropical in comparison.
Second half advantage worth 4 tries and yet the home side dug in and kept the ball.When it came yet another powerful break from Matt Hema. Albert Portsmouth his outside centre stayed alongside and finished of the incision with a 20 metre run in.  Ben thrashed the ball yet again. The conversion went wide and landed south of Bedford. It took the patience of Jack Green to complete the exceptional day with a sensitive penalty kick clean through the middle of those same posts. Yes it was 4.44 pm and the record book once again rewritten.

O no forgot to post this week, and so my meteoric  rise and top score of the week before is squashed in one swoop of Brian!  falling 21 places as if cut down in my prime :)
