Midlands Final Junior Vase Pre-match Review

The hosts Long Buckby have only lost once in the league this season at home to Bedford Swifts but gained revenge in their away fixture recently winning 24-33. Rugby Lions played Bedford Swifts in round 2 of the Vase winning 30-15, which may indicate that this final may well be interestingly balanced.

With coaches from each club watching their opposition assessing strengths & weaknesses, this suggests both teams are taking their opposition seriously to prepare as well as possible. 


With the home advantage for Long Buckby, a hostile reception is expected for Rugby Lions so The Lions will need to feel the passion from  their own supporters to turn the hosts ground into 'A Lions Den'. 


This will be 'Clash of the Titans' to hold the Title of Midlands Champions!! 


Has their been a Midlands 5 team winner before??
