Broughton Park Ladies beat a below strength Leigh Ladies, with the scoreboard for the first time ever going back to zero. Final score 136 - 0.

Broughton Park just had too much pace and once they were in behind the defence it was a try everytime.

Broughton Park are probably promoted into NC North West 1 where the points system is different. Instead of 3 for a win, 2 for a draw and 1 for losing plus a bonus point for having 15 players it would change to 4 for a win, 2 for a draw 0 for a loss and bonus points for losing within 15 points and a bonus point for scoring 5 tries.

The teams currently in North West 1 are:-

Altrincham Kersal Ladies withdrawn

Didsbury Toc H Ladies narrowly beat Harrogate Ladies 34 - 33 in the North West 1 v North East 1 and I think will be promoted to the Championship North 2. At the bottom of Championship 2 North are Kendal Wasps Ladies. I think that they will be relegated into North West 1 replacing Didsbury Toc H Ladies.

Altrincham Kersal Ladies dropped out of North West 1 so maybe 2 teams will be promoted from North 2 West with 1 relegated from North West 1 (Garstang).

Looks like some very long trips. Vagabonds, Carlisle and Kendal.

The round trip distances to these clubs are:-

1 Chester 74
2 Preston Grasshoppers 80
3 Crewe & Nantwich 80
4 Kendal 156
5 Carlisle 244
6 Vagabonds (I.O.M.) 263
7 Workington 282

These are the round trip distances for the men. Not quite as many long distance trips.

1 Burnage 10
2 De La Salle (Salford) 14
3 Manchester 16
4 Wilmslow 21
5 Stockport 21
6 Warrington 43
7 Northwich 48
8 Anselmians 79
9 Blackburn 89
10 Firwood Waterloo 93
11 Birkenhead Park 104
12 Carlisle 244
13 Douglas (I.O.M.) 262

All this is of course pure speculation I have zero inside knowledge!
