With Saturday's USA Rugby Division 1 Men's matches done and dusted, we see alot of activity in the middle of the board.
Palmer's 29-5 loss to the Barbarians see the Davenport outfit drop 2 places to 5th. Milwaukee moves up a spot to 4th place.
The two Chigago outfits each suffered losses this weekeend. However, the tight contest between Scioto Valley and the Lions (35-32) match resulted in a bonus-point for the Lions, enough to move them ahead of the Griffins to 6th place.
The win for Scioto Valley keeps them firmly in second place behind 7-0 Metropolis who brought home a 33-10 victory over the Griffins.
The Blues' bonus-point win (43-28) over the Wolfhounds keeps them ahead of Milwaukee, up one spot to third place wth one game in hand. With only a few weeks left, Cincinatti remain on rack to hold the the wooden spoon over the winter break.
