Severn Roller Torrent – It’s In Their Hands

  • 2 wins from the last 2 remaining games will see them top the group.
  • If Severn beat the Vixens, they can afford to lose to Oxford and they will still qualify.
  • If they lose to the Vixens, victory against Oxford will see them qualify as champions..
  • If they lose both their remaining games, they will be reliant on other results to see them through.

Milton Keynes Roller Derby – Relying On Others

  • Milton Keynes need to beat Wolves on Bout Day 7 and hope other results go their way.
  • If Oxford beat Wolves on Bout Day 6, Milton Keynes need Severn to beat Oxford on Bout Day 7, and they also need to finish with a better points differential than Oxford or Wiltshire.
  • If Severn beat Vixens on Bout Day 6 and Oxford win their 2 remaining games, Milton Keynes will not qualify.
  • If Oxford lose to Wolves on Day 6 and Severn lose to Vixens, Milton Keynes need to match the results of Oxford, Wiltshire or Vixens to qualify.

Oxford Roller Derby – It’s In Their Hands

  • Oxford need to win both their games to qualify.
  • If Oxford beat Wolves on Bout Day 6 and lose to Severn on Bout Day 7, they need to have a better points differential than Milton Keynes, Wiltshire or Vixens (if the Vixens beat Severn on Bout Day 6) to qualify.
  • If Oxford lose both their remaining games, they are relying on Milton Keynes and Wiltshire losing their remaining games and Vixens losing to Severn on Bout Day 6. Oxford will also need to have a better points differential than Milton Keynes, Wiltshire, Vixens or Wolverhampton

Wiltshire Roller Derby – Relying On Others

  • Wiltshire need Oxford to lose one of their remaining games. If they do, they need to beat Vixens on Bout Day 7, and finish with a better points differential than Milton Keynes and Oxford to qualify.
  • If Oxford lose both their remaining games, and Milton Keynes lose to Wolves, Wiltshire need to beat Vixens to qualify automatically.

Vendetta Vixens – Relyng On Others

  • Vixens need to win both their remaining games. They are then relying on Oxford losing at least one game to have a chance of qualifying.
  • If that happens, Vixens will be hoping that Milton Keynes lose to Wolves to finish above them on points. They will also have to finish with a better points differential than Oxford if they win one of their remaining matches. If Milton Keynes beat Wolves, Vixens have to have a better points differential that Milton Keynes too.

Wolverhampton Honour Rollers – Relying On Others

  • Wolverhampton can still qualify. They need to win their remaining two games. If Oxford lose both their remaining games, Wolves are relying on Milton Keynes and Wiltshire losing their remaining games and Vixens losing to Severn on Bout Day 6. Wolves will also need to have a better points differential than Milton Keynes, Oxford, Wiltshire or Vixens.
