In division two only Weather Girls have an unbeaten record after six games and they have a five point lead at the top of the table.
Whilst they do not always score the most goals each week their defence is proving very difficult to break down and in their two games they only conceded 15 goals whilst scoring 47. They had a very good win over Tip Top Trees by 23-9, and then a 24-6 win against bottom side NAS who are still looking for their first victory. Tip Top Trees slipped down to third as a result of 2 defeats, one to Weather Girls and the other to a fiery display from JD Tyres, who took the game to the Trees to win by 39-25. As a result Howden hawks moved up to third on goal difference thanks to wins over NAS, by 31-17, and Sidmouth Toucans by 38-22. JD Tyres moved up the table despite losing closely to Toucans, by 29-26, but then winning against the Trees. Sidmouth Toucans had one win and one defeat whilst NAS suffered 2 more defeats.
Weather Girls and Howden Hawks both picked up maximum 6 points from the two games, whilst Toucans and JD Tyres both picked up 4 points, with Tip Top Trees and NAS both picking up just a point each for their efforts.
