Nottingham Mavericks B

1 - Nottingham Mavericks B

W: 1D: 0L: 0GF: 12GA: 2GD: +10PP%: 100.0PK%: 100.0
Pts: Harrison (6) G: Harrison (6) A: Deeley (4) SAV%: Sandiford (1.00)
Nottingham Mavericks B
This dropping a team out of checking has really worked out well for the Mavs team that supposedly had lost loads of players. If my favourite sports teams could lose so many players and then pump everyone I might not be so cynical. The Mavs still don't have any friends, but they'll hang about longer than most would like this weekend.
Glasgow Stags

2 - Glasgow Stags

W: 6D: 0L: 3GF: 78GA: 46GD: +32PP%: 26.9PK%: 80.8
Pts: Preston (29) G: Preston (18) A: Preston (11) SAV%: Brown (0.86)
Glasgow Stags
The Stags top team will be a force in nationals. Led by Kilmarnock Thunder's finest prospect (well top five at least in my mind), Matthew Preston. The Bowl top scorers widget (queue Dave telling me off for mislabelling software) is full of antlers this year, so the damage comes from everywhere. The Stags narrowly miss out on the top spot because they are newbies to nationals and the challenges that come with it and also because of 40-1.
Oxford Vikings

3 - Oxford Vikings

W: 1D: 0L: 1GF: 17GA: 12GD: +5PP%: 0.0PK%: 80.0
Pts: Brar (5) G: Price (3) A: Brar (3) SAV%: Sacco (0.79)
Oxford Vikings
The Vikings have a pedigree in this tournament with a mix of experience and younger exciting talent normally. It will be interested see how they compete with the new bucks in the Stags and the superstar Mavs B. They are one of three teams with a 100% win percentage in the Merit Bowl and with the experience of the likes of the unbearably season Mr McGlynn do not expect them to sail away without making some noise this weekend.
Sheffield Bears C

4 - Sheffield Bears C

W: 3D: 1L: 3GF: 34GA: 31GD: +3PP%: 10.0PK%: 84.2
Pts: Ingledow (8) G: Ingledow (6) A: Lang (3) SAV%: Haile (1.00)
Sheffield Bears C
The Bears C team are normally a force to be reckoned with each Nationals, though they have a mixed back of results in the Merits Bowl this year with a loss, win and draw. So far we haven't see a Sheffield team in a final, let alone lift a trophy, will we C one here?
Nottingham Mavericks C

5 - Nottingham Mavericks C

W: 5D: 0L: 0GF: 45GA: 8GD: +37PP%: 25.0PK%: 92.3
Pts: Launchbury (12) G: Thorneley (8) A: Launchbury (5) SAV%: Smallwood (1.00)
Nottingham Mavericks C
40-1!!! Yes that is right it was the revenge of the bovine as the Mavs C team slaughtered the Lions C team. I have yet to see the game sheet, presumably as the person uploading it developed carpel tunnels with all the goals they had to enter. The Mavs C being this high is a testament to Will Fry, the coaching staff and the ridiculously good players the Mavs can draw from across the board. People have their shoes off and they essentially have the popularity of a politician that has just proposed banning ice cream, but they annoyingly (to most) pretty good.
Kent Knights

6 - Kent Knights

W: 0D: 0L: 0GF: 0GA: 0GD: 0PP%: 0.0PK%: 0.0
Pts: N/A G: N/A A: N/A SAV%: N/A
Kent Knights
The Kent Knights have several familiar faces in their ranks that this year's nationals and will likely sneak into the plate level of the tier if they can play consistent hockey. I expect the key Knight to be 'Old School' Vincent Miller who is the Barristan Selmy of the Knights team.
Manchester Metros B

7 - Manchester Metros B

W: 2D: 1L: 5GF: 20GA: 45GD: -25PP%: 12.5PK%: 70.0
Pts: Irwin (6) G: Irwin (4) A: Fenner (2) SAV%: McDonald (1.00)
Manchester Metros B
The Metros B have finished with a 33% record in the Merit Bowl this and on the evidence of their C team this past weekend the 'never say die, but equally never back check days' of Andrew MacKinnon are gone and now the 'never say die, but never hit the target days' of captain Max Springer are here. They are always a proud team and this weekend will be no different, they'll either get an upset and play in the plate, or wind up near the Vase finals.
Leeds Gryphons B

8 - Leeds Gryphons B

W: 4D: 0L: 5GF: 31GA: 36GD: -5PP%: 0.0PK%: 93.8
Pts: Wragg (8) G: Tattersall (4) A: Wragg (4) SAV%: Woods (0.96)
Leeds Gryphons B
Despite Shaun Monkhouse being on the Gryphons B, you would be telling a tall tale to say that Gryphons B are favourites this year. However, they are brave team to travel up to face essential Harry Potter's Patronus Charm in the Stags. They will be a well drilled team and will be knocking on the door of the Vase final when all is said and done.
Birmingham Lions B

9 - Birmingham Lions B

W: 2D: 0L: 3GF: 27GA: 40GD: -13PP%: 12.5PK%: 80.0
Pts: Law (9) G: Grubisic (7) A: Stevens (4) SAV%: Brown II (0.88)
Birmingham Lions B
A LIONS TEAM THAT ISN'T LAST. It is a testament to them winning a game this year and generally having goals in their team. Lions teams normally like are like the Lannisters that they represent, however it is normally just their bar tab and not revenge on ice. The one thing that is for sure is the support for them will be massive for them, they'll be loud and Nick and I will struggle to read their jersey numbers.
Sheffield Bears D

10 - Sheffield Bears D

W: 1D: 0L: 6GF: 44GA: 40GD: +4PP%: 11.1PK%: 75.0
Pts: Kojima (12) G: Kojima (8) A: Cartwright (5) SAV%: King (1.00)
Sheffield Bears D
The Bears D will be a tough out for any opponent they face this weekend. I don't think they'll get the to the dizzying heights that their Cs will, but they could cause an upset or two. They come up from the Merit Shield where despite having a a losing record they have a positive goal differential of over 20 meaning when they turn it on they turn it on big.
Southampton Spitfires B

11 - Southampton Spitfires B

W: 0D: 0L: 0GF: 0GA: 0GD: 0PP%: 0.0PK%: 0.0
Pts: N/A G: N/A A: N/A SAV%: N/A
Southampton Spitfires B
My feelings on the Spitfires B are similar to my feelings on the C and D teams... I genuinely have not got a scooby how they'll do. Looking at the roster I do not see the usual cast of goal hungry maniacs that I remember from yesteryear, so maybe COVID has grounded another flight!
Northumbria Kings B

12 - Northumbria Kings B

W: 1D: 0L: 10GF: 34GA: 87GD: -53PP%: 6.3PK%: 80.0
Pts: Perrie (7) G: Perrie (7) A: Bharkhada (4) SAV%: Westerman (0.88)
Northumbria Kings B
The Kings B will be probably more surprised to be coming this weekend than anything else. However their Cs showed that clever game planning and hustle can keep you in it with anyone. Their goalie Jack Anthony had a couple of real heaters this season, going toe to toe with the Eagles and even taking a slap shot to the coupon like a champ for a shut out. Confidence will be key for them.
