The penultimate round of Phase 2 in the AASE League took to place on Wednesday, bringing us a step closer to knowing which sides will compete in the AASE final.

 

That final takes place on Wednesday 5th December at Allianz Park, and will see the winners of Division 1 Pool A face the winners of Division 1 Pool B. Second in each pool will play for third place, and third four 5th place, and so on.

 

Division 1 – Pool A

 

In a repeat of last year’s final Gosforth Academy and Hartpury College met in Pool A. However unlike last year’s final, where Hartpury absolutely stormed to victory, this one was incredibly tight. Hartpury took it by just a single point, 22-21, to leave the with two wins from two and in with a chance for the final. Gosforth, meanwhile, with two defeats from two, will not be repeating last year’s feat of reaching the final.

 

Brooksby Melton College will also not be reaching the final after they lost 44-20 to Truro College, leaving them winless so far too. For Truro though it was a second win from two, and means that their game against Hartpury College next week will be a direct shootout for top spot in Division 1 Pool A and a place in the AASE final.

 

Division 1 – Pool B

 

It was north v north and south v south in Pool B, and Beechen Cliff continued their unbeaten AASE season and made it two wins from two in Phase 2 with a 24-17 victory at Exeter College, their second victory over them this season. It leaves them as the only side with two wins and in pole position for that final place.

 

Oaklands College enjoyed an impressive 23-7 victory at Bishop Burton College, leaving them tied with Exeter College after one win each. However a lack of a bonus point means that only Exeter can overhaul Beechen Cliff should they beat Oaklands next week and Beechen Cliff lose to Bishop Burton.

 

Division 2 – North Pool

 

Myerscough College enjoyed a brilliant win over Moulton College in phase 1 of the league, but Moulton got their revenge on Wednesday with a superb 26-21 victory, their final game of the regular AASE season.

 

Division 2 – South Pool

 

In the South SGS Filton College’s remarkable turn of form continued as they turned in a superb performance against Henley College to secure a quite brilliant 52-7 victory. Meaning that Henley, for whom this was their last regular season game, will be in the 13th place play off against the bottom side in the North Pool.
