Continuing with the winners of the national leagues…

Men’s:

Level 2

The Championship – Ealing Trailfinders

Another league victory is in the bag for the Trailfinders after losing out to the, now defunct, Jersey Reds last season. This victory once again puts pressure on the powers that be, to allow the west London side into the Premiership.

Level 3

National One – Chinnor

A dominant season from a side that will be truly tested in the second division next year. Their points difference was triple the amount of their nearest rivals, proving just how dominant this side has been throughout the year.

Level 4

National Two North – Rotherham Titans

Despite 25 wins from 26, the Titans found themselves just 2 points above former Premiership side Leeds Tykes in an incredibly tight league. Rotherham’s 32 – 26 victory over their rivals back in March made all the difference in deciding their final league placement.

National Two East – Esher

With over 1100 points from a 26-match season, Esher ensured a points difference of almost double anyone else in their league, securing a well deserved league victory.

National Two West – Dings Crusaders

The Bristol based team had built on last year’s improvements with an incredibly successful campaign, keeping well out of reach of any serious competition.

Level 5

Regional 1 North East – Harrogate

Regional 1 North West – Macclesfield

Regional 1 South East – Colchester

Regional 1 South West – Devonport Services

Regional 1 South Central – Havant

Regional 1 Midlands – Oxford Harlequins

Level 6 and below

A comprehensive victory for the side from the west, beating their nearest rivals by 20 points.

Women’s Championship South 1 – Thurrock Ladies

Possibly the tightest league finish in the country, three teams were within two points of each other as the season reached its end.

Level 3

Women’s Championship Midlands 2 – Lichfield Ladies

Women’s Championship North 2 – Sheffield Women

Women’s Championship South East 2 – Battersea Ironsides Women

Women’s Championship South West 2 – North Bristol Ladies
