Another relatively quiet weekend as we wind down toward the Christmas break, there was a successful trip for Farnborough up to Oxford beating both Abingdon and Didcot and moving them up to 2nd in the table, a good win for Basingstoke in the regional league and wins for Abingdon 2 and City 2 in division 2 (N).

There were relatively few matches played last weekend mainly due to problems with access to the Hall at St Gregs on Sunday. In total 4 matches could not go ahead and will be rescheduled later in the season.
In division 2 (S) Woking 2 won a close match with Southampton City and look like the team to beat in the division this year. However, they are not eligible for promotion so if they finish in top spot, the 2nd place team will enter the playoffs.
Basingstoke Bulls 11-16 Bristol City
Southampton Uni 1 19-7 Oxford City 1

Southampton City 1 10-12 Woking 2

There was a tough day in Bristol for Oxford City in the regional league, a very close game at the lower end of division 1 that could be an important relegation decider, and a big win to take Southampton Uni back to the top spot.
In Division 2 (N) a win for Didcot 2 moves them up the table. Meanwhile down South Southampton City maintain their unbeaten run.
