National League: Triple-header between CWBA and The Bears including Premier Division battle

All three National League teams from CWBA and The Bears will be in action on Sunday (24 November) during a triple-header between the two clubs. 

The second and third teams from each club will both go head-to-head, before the club’s Premier Division teams clash in the final top-flight fixture of the weekend. 

Here are the things to look out for in the BWB National League with 15 fixtures taking place across the weekend: 

Premier Division 

After a two-week break the Premier Division returns with The Owls aiming to maintain their unbeaten start to the National League season. However, they face a Tees Valley Titans side who will be determined to bounce back after defeat to CWBA last time out. 

The Premier Division’s two newest teams will also meet on Saturday, with NI Knights and Exeter Otters going head-to-head. The Otters will be high on confidence after securing their first win of the 2019/20 campaign in their previous game, while NI Knights will be looking to return back to winning ways. 

On Sunday, CWBA v The Bears will be the final game of the triple-header between the two clubs. CWBA are currently third in the league table after two wins and two losses, while The Bears are still searching for their first win. 

Division 1 

There will be a battle of unbeaten teams in Division 1 North with Glasgow Rollin’ Rocks and Wakefield Whirlwinds both having a 100 per cent winning record so far this season. 

Glasgow have won all four of their games and are currently top of the table, while Wakefield Whirlwinds have two wins from two. 

Six of the seven teams in Division 1 North will be in action this weekend. With second-placed Aces not playing, London Titans 2 will extend their lead at the top of the table when they travel to Blackhawks. 

Thames Valley Kings (TVK) will be aiming to extend their unbeaten start to the season when they host Jaguars in what is TVK’s first home game of the 2019/20 season. 

CWBA 2 and The Bears 2 both meet as part of the triple-header at Woodlands Academy in Coventry. 

Division 2 

Tees Valley Titans 2 will make it five wins from five if they beat Leicester Cobras in Division 2 North on Saturday, while The Cobras are still looking for their first win of the season. 

Birmingham Pheonix will travel to Scotland for a double header; first-up on Saturday will be a trip to Glasgow Rollin’ Rocks 2, before taking on Lothian Phoenix less than 24 hours later. 

With the top-two in Division 2 South not in action this weekend, Plymouth Raiders will close the gap on Frenford Falcons and Sussex Bears when they play Hampshire Harriers. 

A win for the Raiders would not only extend their winning streak, it would also close the gap to the top-two to just one point. 

Norwich Lowriders and Cardiff Met Archers will go head-to-head; both targeting their second win of the season. 

High Rollers could make it three successive wins when they travel to take on London Titans 3. 

Division 3 

There are just two fixtures in Division 3 this weekend, with both coming in Division 3 Central / South West. 

League leaders CWBA host The Bears, who are unbeaten, while Plymouth Raiders 2 will also be wanting to extend their unbeaten record when they welcome Blackhawks 2 to the South Coast.
