Excellent performances in the first half of the season left St Ives-based Icons in first position, but the second half presented more challenges and a few losses put their hopes in jeopardy.
A 44-21 win in the penultimate match of the season secured their promotion.
The second team also enjoyed a successful season, losing just two games despite major injuries to two players. Mirroring the success of the first team, they were promoted to the second division for the 2007/2008 winter season.
