SCC are narrowly leading the league at the half-way stage, sitting unbeaten with just one draw so far. Gaelic Lions had been keeping pace , but slipped to their first loss of the season against the Singapore Vikings just before the winter break. It's all to play for though, with both teams still to meet each other twice.
The season gets going again tonight with Gaelic Lions up against Aioli and looking to join SCC at the top of the table, at least for a few hours. In the other Friday night game the German All Stars take on Hibernians. A win for either team would move them a bit further up into mid-table respectabiility.
The league leaders take on Nippon on Saturday. Nippon are unbeaten in four games, but went down 7-0 to SCC in their last meeting. Olympic Gaulois vs Hotspurs should be an evenly matched game, with both teams on 12 points. Third-placed TGA take on second-bottom Casuals, while the Swiss will be looking for their first points against the Vikings.
