Valley Cougars will go into the playoffs in the Southern Conference League off the back of an unbeaten season after a 32-18 win over Welsh rivals Torfaen Tigers.
It is the third straight year the Cougars have finished unbeaten after the weekly rounds. They now face Bedford Tigers in the first playoff game a week on Saturday,
It was a harsh lesson for a young Tigers side, which included a 16 year old, making his first team debut. They have however, retained second place and will host Hammersmith Hills Hoists on the same day.
