For the fourth consecutive year these teams met at Hamilton Rugby Club in the semi-final stage of the British Championship. The Pirates were, once again Premier North champions, the Blitz were runners up in the Premier South Division.
This was a closer game than last year. London opened the scoring with a touchdown from a spectacular punt return. Their other scores came from turnovers, one fumble recovered and run in and the last touchdown from short distance after another EK fumble. The Pirates sole touchdown came after a turnover too, this time an interception.
The final score was a 19-7 win for the Blitz who go on again to meet London Warriors in the Britbowl final.
