The leading lights in the first division carried on where they left off with victories for Tile Hill Trojans 1, Aylesford Hawks and Coventry College.
Arden Griffins’ frustration continued with their home game against Ernesford Eagles called off, as was the other fixture between Warwick china Red and Tamworth Tigers, whilst Tile Hill Trojans 2 made it three from three as they won at Coventry Tornadoes.
In Division Two Team Rebels continued their good form with a ten point win over Nuneaton, whilst leaders Rugby Rage were hosting Tile Hill Trojans 3 on Friday night at Harris School.
The draw was made on Wednesday night for the first round of this season’s Handicap Cup competitions. Aylesford have declined to enter so, excluding them, the top eight sides in the Christmas league table go into the Bob Castledine Cup with the remaining teams joining those from Division Two plus the addition of Nuneaton Predators 2 making up the other tournament.
The full draw is as follows:
Bob Castledine Memorial Cup
Tile Hill Trojans 1 v Coventry Tornadoes
Coventry College v Cracovia Stratford
Tile Hill Trojans 2 v Tamworth Tigers

The four winning sides will contest the semi-finals with the four losing teams playing in the Plate competition semi-finals.
Division Two Handicap Cup
