Hot Custard and the evergreen Misfits were locked horns in a battle royale, trading blows like heavy-weight boxers, with one exchange of touch downs after another.
Great set-plays and team moves from both teams were on show last week, with an impressive try eventually giving Hot Custard the one point lead for a 6-5 victory. The Misfits did really well against a strong team that consisted of many experienced players as well as some England Touch players. With only three weeks left of the competition it’s going to come down to the wire to see who wins the league.
Marc Desmeules, the Venue Manager said, “one of the team,, Carlton Crusaders, were impressing the ladies with their spanking new figure hugging team kit and offers to fill the two vacant, but compulsory, ladies spots in their team.
The only Women’s team in the Late Autumn League, CSSC Jawa’s, were giving the Baa Baa’s a lesson in clinical touch/ walking away with a very convincing 8-2 victory. They have been showing the teams a thing or two on how to play great structure of the game with superb team work. The CSSC Jawa’s have had lots of different players go through their team in the past seasons and one of their main players Lois Lau is an England Women’s 27’s player. She has passed on some fantastic knowledge of the game to her team mates, of which some have now been selected for the Touch World Cup squads going to Australia in April 2015.
The next touch leagues will take place in early February next year and will run on Sundays at Clapham Common, dates will be confirmed shortly. There will also be more Active Touch leagues (indoor leagues) starting in late January.
