Even though some teams have had strong starts to this years British American Football season, it’s still tricky to gauge just how good those starts are due to the fact that not all teams have kicked off their 2014 campaign.
Well that fact gets put to rest this Sunday as the last three teams that have yet to play do so, with two of them facing each other in the Premier North.
Yorkshire Rams finished 5-5 last year and just outside the playoffs places, they host the Sheffield Predators who will look to get off to a fast start so they can match their 8-2 mark of 2013.
In the National South East the Kent Exiles visit the Ouse Valley Eagles, and that will complete the set of 54 teams that are in Adult competition.
There are some intriguing games around the country in Week Five, potentially the game of the day is in the National North West. The 2-1 Chester Romans host the Merseyside Nighthawks, who are unbeaten at 2-0. This particular division is already proving to be closely fought and a win here for either team will put them in good shape.
Another interesting game sees the Peterborough Saxons at home to the Sandwell Steelers. Saxons dropped down from the Premier South and won their opening game two weeks ago, whereas Sandwell enjoyed their first ever success last week in just their second competitive game, this will be a good indicator for both in a tight Midlands group.
Down in the South West both Farnham and Solent will look to strengthen their grip on the division when they host Torbay and Cornwall respectively.
