NVL titles to be decided this weekend for Rockets!

Nottingham Rockets Women 1 play their final two matches this weekend in National League Division 3N. The team need two wins against Leeds Carnegie 2 and Leeds 2, without dropping more than 2 sets to guarantee the 2011-2012 league title. The girls have beaten both teams earlier in the season, despite a first set wobble against Leeds 2 – who remain the only team aside from league rivals Coventry and Warwick Riga to take a set off the girls. Riga have just one match left against 3rd placed Haughton Darlington,  a 3 -0 win is needed for them in order to really push Rockets to the final match.

Both Rockets and Riga are already guaranteed promotion thanks to their form so far – but Rockets would love the league title as well! The team have had a great first season in the NVL, dropping only 2 sets since the shaky first match loss against Warwick Riga where injuries and absence played their part. Good luck to the players and coach Sian!

The Men’s first team are not in action this weekend as all their matches are complete, however will be keeping a close eye on the Danes Watford and Newcastle (Staffs) 2 fixture on Saturday. Danes must win to take the league title off Rockets – however with Staffs struggling with injuries in their first team and many second team players intending to play up it looks like a likely win for the southern side.
