Romsey Town RollerBillies – It’s In Their Hands

  • 2 wins from the last 2 remaining games will see them top the group.
  • 1 win from their last two remaining games will be enough to see them qualify – probably as Divisional champions because of their large points differential.
  • If they lose both their remaining games, their large points differential should still see them qualify.

Mean Valley Roller Girls – It’s In Their Hands

  • Win their last game vs Norfolk Brawds and they’re through to Finals Day.
  • If Mean Valley lose to the Brawds, their position depends on how the Brawds performed against Hell’s Belles on Bout Day 6
  • If The Brawds have beaten Hell’s Belles, and Mean Valley lose to the Brawds, Mean Valley will not qualify
  • If Hell’s Belles have Beaten the Brawds, and Mean Valley lose to the Brawds, Mean Valley need to have a better points differential than Rebellion or the Brawds, to qualify in second.
  • If Romsey lose 1 of their remaining games, Mean Valley need to win their last game and overhaul Romsey’s points differential to finish top. If Romsey lose both of their remaining games, Mean Valley need only to win their last game to finish top.

Rebellion Roller Derby – Relying On Others

  • Rebellion need Hell’s Belles to beat the Brawds on Bout Day 6, and the Brawds to beat Mean Valley on Bout Day 7.
  • Rebellion then need to beat Romsey by a large margin to get a better points differential than Mean Valley and the Brawds, to qualify in second place.

Norfolk Brawds – It’s In Their Hands

  • 2 wins from their last 2 remaining games will see them qualify for finals day.
  • If the Brawds lose to Hell’s Belles on Bout Day 6, they need to beat Mean Valley on Bout Day 7. The winning margin against Mean Valley will need to be half the points differential gap between them and Mean Valley at the start of the day. If Rebellion beat Romsey on Bout Day 7, the Brawds will also need to have a better points differential than Rebellion to qualify.

Bedfordshire RollerGirls – Not This Year

  • They cannot qualify this year but can still affect the divisional outcome with victory over Romsey on Bout Day 6.

Hell’s Belles Roller Girls – Not This Year

  • They cannot qualify this year but can still affect the divisional outcome with victory over the Brawds on Bout Day 6.
