Berwick bloom in August

The Olympus Marquees Berwick Bandits (Powered by Mike Hope, Wooler) have suffered this season in injuries, grotesque luck and a set of results which are certainly not the envy of the rest of the SGB Championship, but had the season started on August 1st, then the Bandits story of 2017 would have been a whole lot different.
