Somerville OB still lead the way in the SoF table with a mark of 9.18, excellent at any stage of the season. Ten other clubs have a mark of 8.50 and above and the League average is a very healthy 8.08. On the opposite end of the spectrum Old Grantonians are already in the bad books after some poor reports from referees and opposition and have climed slightly to 6.38 since their all time low of just 5.50. Continued improvement is sought and their progress is continually monitored . The other teams in the lower places are the same as in most previous seasons and disappointing that all the perceived club improvement promised do not actually materialise. Of real concern are the poor reports and continued low marks of both Old Parmiterians & Old Aloysians.
In the other categories Worcester College OB remain anchored adrift in bottom place of the organisation table, are in the bottom seven for facilities, having been 3rd in SoF, so they struggle to get onto the pitch but once the game starts they are perfect!! 25 teams have a mark of 8.50 or above for Organisation. Old Paulines have now made their way to the top the facilities mark with 9.06 and Crosbeians top the hospitality with 9.25
So overall the average marks for most clubs, other than those highlighted are on the up, a good sign that needs maintaining as the second half of the season starts.
