London Blitz seek revenge in BritBowl rematch against London Warriors
London Blitz chairman Henry Charlton-Weedy is determined to make amends for last year’s BritBowl defeat to London Warriors when the teams clash again in the end-of-season showpiece.
Blitz have lost the last three BritBowl finals to their south London rivals – including a dramatic 20-19 defeat in the dying seconds 12 months ago.
The Finsbury Park side, who overcame Tamworth Phoenix 40-12 to secure their place in Saturday’s final, will be underdogs after losing both of their league meetings with the Warriors during the regular season.
“Against many predictions, we went on to win our semi-final in convincing fashion against a strong Tamworth side, and we hope to carry on that momentum into the BritBowl final,” said the Blitz chairman.
“London Warriors are a quality side and we want nothing more than to get revenge for the fact that they have beaten us in the final for the last three seasons, with last year’s loss in the final second of the game being particularly heart-wrenching.

“But the tables have now turned – Blitz are the underdogs with nothing to lose, and nobody is as hungry as we are to win the day.”
Blitz will be bidding for their fourth national championship in Saturday’s final, which takes place at Sixways Stadium, Worcester.
