GUILDFORD, UK–When these teams last met Rocky Mountain were WFTDA champions and their 228-49 win flattered the hosts courtesy of a huge final jam. It was unthinkable then that London might be considered favourites in their next meeting–but slight favourites they were. A first half of long, tight battles for lead jammer kept scoring low until the teams traded powerjams at the death was followed by a slightly freer second half–but London led from jam three and took an exceptionally physical win 205-132.

GUILDFORD, UK–It was a festival of pink as London’s London Brawling (current WFTDA #7) took on Toronto’s CN Power (WFTDA #13); even both teams’ coaches got in on the act with both Ballistic Whistle and Wade Wheelson sporting bright pink ties.

UPDATE (11 Dec, 2pm): WFTDA has re-released the rankings after a data entry error saw a game between Gold Coast and Fort Myers recorded as Gold Coast vs Fort Wayne. The Gold Coast game made Fort Myers eligible to be ranked; they debut at 42, just behind Sac City. Gold Coast rises from 54 to 50; all teams under 42 drop at least one place. That means that the previously 100th placed team Assassination City drops out of Division 2 into Division 3.
