A TERRIFIC battle for the Division One North crown is lined up this season and it looks to be a three-horse race.

Ruthin are well in the mix and they remain second - level on points with leaders Nant Conwy - after their 32-23 win at COBRA.

Nant claimed a 62-5 thrashing of Llangefni to just stay clear.

With a game in hand and four points back are Caernarfon, who claimed a narrow 22-18 outcome at Bala.
