1 – East Kilbride Pirates – NFC 1 North (Up 2)

The East Kilbride Pirates won the final in comfortable fashion managing to put up 50 points on the Cats. They overcame the undefeated Leicester falcons away from home in the semi-finals to leave no doubt they should be #1.

2 – Leicester Falcons – NFC 1 South (Down 1)

The Falcons v EKP game was extremely close in the semi-finals. They pushed them all the way after having an undefeated regular season. They sit in at #2.

3 – Northumberland Vikings – NFC 1 North (Down 1)

The Vikings lost to EKP in the quarter finals, but they lost by less than the Cats and they also held the head-to-head over EKP in the regular season.

4 – Cambridgeshire Cats – SFC 1 East (Up 2)

The Cats had a great season going 8-2 but it was clear on Sunday that EKP were of a different level from the kickoff. They will take their place in the prem south but still believe they wouldn’t beat the other 2 teams above them.

5 – Hertfordshire Cheetahs – SFC 1 West (Up 3)

The Cheetahs had the finals in sight until the last half of the 4th quarter in the semi-final. They were excellent all season but will probably realise there is another level they need to go to to try and win division 1 next season.

6 – Yorkshire Rams – NFC 1 North (Up 1)

The Rams showed some excellent progress this year and just missed out on the playoffs. Scoring points against the toughest of defences will help them towards that goal next year.

7 – Rushmoor Knights – SFC 1 West (Down 3)

The Knights had a social media nightmare but still gave the Cheetahs a decent game in the quarterfinals. They can continue to grow under the rebrand and see how well recruiting goes in the offseason.

8 – Chester Romans – NFC 1 South (Down 11)

The Romans had an excellent season and didn’t exactly roll over to the Falcons in the quarterfinals, but they do still have a bit to go to be playing for that division 1 crown.

9 – Wembley Stallions – SFC 1 East (Non-Mover)

A consistent performance through the year and the Stallions could get themselves some home field advantage. They had an impressive year and are not far off.

10 – London Hornets – SFC 1 East (Non-Mover)

Missed out on the playoffs in the last week which will have been hard to swallow, but after seeing the playoffs they probably need a little more next season to get to the next level.
