St Andrews Typhoons

1 - St Andrews Typhoons

W: 5D: 1L: 0GF: 64GA: 17GD: +47PP%: 38.9PK%: 86.7
Pts: Lockamyeir (19) G: Rochon (14) A: Lockamyeir (11) SAV%: Brown (1.00)
St Andrews Typhoons
The Typhoons come in on a wave (or are they the waves hmm) after a record setting Jonny Wookie Varsity at 13-4. The only blotch on the Phoons copy book was a tie away from home to the Mavericks, who will appear shortly in the rankings. Look for lots of slick hands, corner finding wristers and good hard skating, but hopefully the end of that ridiculous phoontang thing they do :P
Nottingham Mavericks

2 - Nottingham Mavericks

W: 3D: 1L: 0GF: 32GA: 12GD: +20PP%: 33.3PK%: 87.5
Pts: Springer-Hughes (13) G: Springer-Hughes (7) A: Yokoyama (8) SAV%: Thornton (0.91)
Nottingham Mavericks
The Mavericks A success is probably a testament to Reece Clark, not that he coaches them, but I already gave Will Fry credit for Reece's C team and so I don't want to kick Reece while his down. The Mavs are normally well drilled, but can be a bit rough in terms of discipline. Whether they live up to billing will depend on them keeping a lid on the silliness and playing to potential.
Cambridge Blues

3 - Cambridge Blues

W: 4D: 0L: 3GF: 33GA: 36GD: -3PP%: 10.5PK%: 80.0
Pts: Partington (9) G: Yan (5) A: Limback-Stokin (4) SAV%: Neville (0.88)
Cambridge Blues
The Blues are Varsity champs and are build from the back out out with good goaltending, D and hard working forwards. I expect them to make at least the semi finals and possibly top their group. The key man is Captain Grega, a lot of the best Blues flows through him. Stop him and you might have a chance.
UCL Yetis

4 - UCL Yetis

W: 3D: 0L: 2GF: 30GA: 20GD: +10PP%: 62.5PK%: 57.1
Pts: Van Dam (17) G: Van Dam (11) A: Satoh (9) SAV%: Yoon (0.94)
UCL Yetis
Normally cave dwellers, or bottom feeders in Nationals rankings they Yetis have sure turned things around since we last had a checking nationals. However they are not only winning more games than they have played the most games so will have gelled better. You add that to having the top four goal scorers in the Merits cup and you have a recipe for success, however in an association where it is very much 'what have you done for me lately' UCL come in having lost their last match against Imperial who haven't even managed to show up.
Oxford University Blues

5 - Oxford University Blues

W: 4D: 0L: 2GF: 37GA: 24GD: +13PP%: 13.3PK%: 91.7
Pts: Middlebrook (11) G: Middlebrook (7) A: Preston (5) SAV%: Harris-Trent (0.93)
Oxford University Blues
The Blues are an outfit with bags of street cred and experience. Looking at some of the players they left out and played for Vikings at non-checking they are a team that gives me the fear. Their recorded results in the Merit Cup are one win and one lost. With 13 goals conceded over two their defence might be the weakness and could be what avoids them grabbing a semi berth in the plate half of the draw.
Sheffield Bears

6 - Sheffield Bears

W: 2D: 0L: 3GF: 19GA: 23GD: -4PP%: 9.1PK%: 76.2
Pts: Rodgers (9) G: Jansons (4) A: Rodgers (7) SAV%: Ward (1.00)
Sheffield Bears
After what Bears C did this past weekend, it is risky putting the Bears top side in this position, however the issue for them is that a lot of the more talented players have play off games this weekend meaning that they will be bare bones in some games. However, they still have the advantage of their own bed, so expect big things.
Northumbria Kings

7 - Northumbria Kings

W: 6D: 1L: 0GF: 76GA: 30GD: +46PP%: 38.9PK%: 81.3
Pts: Avdoulos (33) G: Avdoulos (18) A: Avdoulos (15) SAV%: Brooks (0.87)
Northumbria Kings
Kings and Edinburgh are ranked so close because they share the highest scoring tie I have ever seen in a 12-12 game at the Bay of Dreams back in February. They have a lot of toughness and talent with a few NEW additions coming in to bolster the side. I can see them being the surprise package this weekend and maybe nicking a win or two against the head.
Edinburgh Eagles

8 - Edinburgh Eagles

W: 4D: 1L: 4GF: 53GA: 66GD: -13PP%: 25.0PK%: 81.8
Pts: Kersten (16) G: Kersten (13) A: Taylor (8) SAV%: Gerrard (1.00)
Edinburgh Eagles
It has been a very weird and trying season for the Eagles. From losing their prime training ice at Murrayfield to sharing ice with the Steel Queens to being on the wrong of a record Wookie margin the Eagles come in not looking like they'll do too much. However, in 20 minute games they should be able to hang, recharge and hang again in the groups meaning they could sneak in to a decent position for a run at the knockouts.
London Dragons

9 - London Dragons

W: 1D: 0L: 3GF: 13GA: 23GD: -10PP%: 33.3PK%: 71.4
Pts: Kaufman (7) G: Kaufman (4) A: Kaufman (3) SAV%: Mak (0.90)
London Dragons
In a similar vain to the Eagles the Dragons look as lost as Drogon when the Khaleesi snuffed it (SPOILER ALERT). Lee Valley is being refurbished and as it stands I have actually no idea what they are up to. However, they always show out strong at nationals. It is going to be strange to see the Dragons play without Kalle chuntering in my ear.
Manchester Metros

10 - Manchester Metros

W: 4D: 1L: 1GF: 44GA: 29GD: +15PP%: 21.1PK%: 85.7
Pts: Jones (13) G: Jones (8) A: Jaeyoon (7) SAV%: McDonald (1.00)
Manchester Metros
The Metros come in looking to impress after great showings from their non-checking teams. They have a flawless record in the Merit Plate and will look to carry that into nationals. They have multiple weapons on offence and I would not be shocked at them making a stop at the plate station, however with all that praise it is going to be interesting to see how they cope with some tier 1 teams.
Sheffield Bears B

11 - Sheffield Bears B

W: 4D: 1L: 1GF: 40GA: 19GD: +21PP%: 6.3PK%: 90.0
Pts: Brooke-Smith (9) G: Brooke-Smith (5) A: Teather (6) SAV%: Haile (0.92)
Sheffield Bears B
Does anyone else remember the year the Bears C were better than Bears B in the old tier 2? I do. However, that was a strange year due to the way they configured their nationals line up. The last time the Bears B played in the top level they were a difficult out for each team they faced and I expect the exact same this weekend.
Leeds Gryphons

12 - Leeds Gryphons

W: 5D: 2L: 5GF: 71GA: 63GD: +8PP%: 15.2PK%: 88.5
Pts: Kime (38) G: Kime (30) A: Richardson (15) SAV%: Woods (1.00)
Leeds Gryphons
With the only semi positive item of note being a draw against the Birmingham Lions in the merits comps I do not anticipate great things from Leeds, but with the return of 'the wrecking ball' Ali Marsden I expect entertainment and a reason to tune into the live stream when they are on.
Birmingham Lions

13 - Birmingham Lions

W: 1D: 1L: 2GF: 19GA: 38GD: -19PP%: 50.0PK%: 61.5
Pts: Mitchell (8) G: Mitchell (5) A: Mitchell (3) SAV%: Howarth (0.93)
Birmingham Lions
Firstly, I know it seems that I am kicking a club when they are down, as the Lions teams have been ranked near bottom in each of them, but the truth is they are a credit to their club, as they show up and never give up. I do not see them having a shot at the plate, but if they hit a purple patch then they could be bound for vase glory!
