In the men’s third division, CBC and Olympians have identical 4-1 win-loss records to hold down first and second place, respectively, from Spartans (three wins).

Games in the women’s second division have been underpinned by the consistent form of CBC with five wins.

The Collegians are a game clear of Olympians, with Franchise a further two games off the pace.

Women’s division three teams Slammers, CBC and Olympians are locked on four wins.

CBC’s big start in the men’s first division has been built on the offensive consistency of Sam Morrow and Miles Tierney.

The pair hold the top-two spots for scoring efficiency — Morrow leading the way with 152 points heading into this week’s round.

Tierney (132 points) was next-best from Franchise’s Jerome Reid (126) and Olympians’ Jarrod Donaldson (119).

In the top women’s division, Alex Clinch-Hoycard defied Spartans’ rough start by racking up a competition-best 160 points.
