This week sees a change at the top of the leader board with the Jackals making it to the top spot after their win over the Hen’s Teeth Coqs. The Hub only managed a draw against the Porters but they still have a game in hand as have Massey’s, so the Jackals spot at top will be short-lived, whatever the outcome. Meanwhile, the PD Queens were delighted to secure their first win of the season in a hard and long fought battle with the Hellraisers!
