The first two weeks of Summer League have been a great success! Click the link to find out about the results and teams…

Week 1

A fantastic turnout saw all four teams competing in games of 6v6! There was plenty of slipping & sliding around during the exciting matches – Ginger (was: Onion) were leading Kohlrabi (was: Lettuce) by a few points, but an awesome last few minutes with big throws and layout scores from both teams saw a huge comeback by Kohlrabi to win 11-10.
Mental Ben’s Rhubarb (or ‘rhubarb rhubarb’ as they like to be called – formerly Carrot) team showed huge improvement during the course of their game against Onion (formerly Beetroot), but in the end the more experienced Onion team with Mediocre & co won out, 10-8 over Rhubarb.

11 Kohlrabi – Ginger 10
