Oxford Blues

1 - Oxford Blues Up 3

W: 8D: 0L: 0GF: 49GA: 20GD: +29PP%: 0.0PK%: 0.0
Pts: Bruce (19) G: Bruce (12) A: Stankievech (9) SAV%: Nicholson (0.94)
Oxford Blues
This is the Team to beat, 100% Record in the Cup, already beaten Nottingham in a challenge game comprehensively. Can anyone stop the Dark Blue Troops marching to the Title?
Nottingham Mavericks

2 - Nottingham Mavericks Non Mover

W: 5D: 1L: 2GF: 52GA: 24GD: +28PP%: 0.0PK%: 0.0
Pts: Bliss (12) G: Bliss (9) A: D\\\\ (7) SAV%: Tasker (0.94)
Nottingham Mavericks
Division 1 North Champions but nowhere near as dominant as previous Mavericks teams, has Si Hopkins lost his touch? Is Illingworth too slow? There is only one way to find out..
Sheffield Bears

3 - Sheffield Bears Up 6

W: 5D: 0L: 3GF: 64GA: 25GD: +39PP%: 0.0PK%: 0.0
Pts: Jeffcock (22) G: Jeffcock (13) A: Offord (17) SAV%: Bagshaw (0.89)
Sheffield Bears
Beaten to the Title by 1 point and had superior Goal Difference. Sheffield could prove to be a top dog but it depends on which Bears Side turns up, the one that travelled to Birmingham or the side that travelled to Edinburgh....
London Dragons

4 - London Dragons Down 3

W: 5D: 0L: 3GF: 69GA: 37GD: +32PP%: 0.0PK%: 0.0
Pts: Hannigan-Daley (17) G: Hannigan-Daley (11) A: Hannigan-Daley (6) SAV%: Bethune (0.89)
London Dragons
Are the Dragons running out of Puff? Winners of everything in sight during the 07/08 season but without Inspirational Dr Dmitry in every game the defence seems to have fallen to pieces.
Newcastle Wildcats

5 - Newcastle Wildcats Up 1

W: 5D: 0L: 4GF: 40GA: 30GD: +10PP%: 0.0PK%: 0.0
Pts: Udell (13) G: Udell (7) A: Bateman (8) SAV%: Clapham (0.88)
Newcastle Wildcats
Once Again Exceeding expectations. Losing out to Nottingham by one point, stealing Northumbria Players seems to have worked wonders for the Wildcats!!!
Cambridge Blues

6 - Cambridge Blues New Entry

W: 4D: 0L: 4GF: 39GA: 35GD: +4PP%: 0.0PK%: 0.0
Pts: Coady (16) G: Smith (9) A: Coady (7) SAV%: Mazurek (0.87)
Cambridge Blues
The Light Blues follow their Women's side's example and finally enter a team into Nationals for the first time. Will they be able to cope with the intensity and speed of these games?
Edinburgh Eagles

7 - Edinburgh Eagles Down 4

W: 4D: 1L: 4GF: 41GA: 61GD: -20PP%: 0.0PK%: 0.0
Pts: Radoja (1) G: Radoja (1) A: Granlund (0) SAV%: Collins (0.75)
Edinburgh Eagles
Slipping down the rankings to seventh might inspire the only Scottish side in the BUIHA to get some results. Mixed bag in the cup even managing a draw with Nottingham in Dundee.
Coventry and Warwick Panthers

8 - Coventry and Warwick Panthers Non Mover

W: 3D: 0L: 5GF: 29GA: 47GD: -18PP%: 0.0PK%: 0.0
Pts: Plihal (8) G: Plihal (5) A: Stobart (4) SAV%: Walker (0.88)
Coventry and Warwick Panthers
Had a solid year this year! Surprising! Will arguing with the Ref hold back their chances this year?
Birmingham Lions

9 - Birmingham Lions Down 4

W: 1D: 0L: 7GF: 15GA: 70GD: -55PP%: 0.0PK%: 0.0
Pts: Pattison (6) G: Pattison (5) A: Skinner (4) SAV%: Sutton (0.76)
Birmingham Lions
Won 1 game, and that was a forfeit. Must be asking whether they are actually better than Southampton.
Southampton Spitfires

10 - Southampton Spitfires Down 3

W: 0D: 0L: 8GF: 20GA: 67GD: -47PP%: 0.0PK%: 0.0
Pts: Boot (7) G: Boot (5) A: Skade (4) SAV%: Hillman (0.82)
Southampton Spitfires
Played 8 Lost 8. Please can we win a game this season, please.
