Run Home - Women's Division Two
The Run Home: Gosford (A), Auburn (A),
Analysis: Clearly the dominant team in the competition, they have gone through the year undefeated and will go into the finals as the hottest of premierships favourites. Shouldn’t be troubled in their final three games which will see an undefeated home and away season.
Prediction: Minor Premiers and will be hard to be beat to claim the premiership
The Run Home: Randwick City (catchup - A), Randwick City (H), UNSW/ES (A)
Analysis: Have only been beaten twice this year, both to Southern Power by a combined total of 13 points. Look to be the side to most likely to challenge Southern Power for the premiership. Should comfortably handle both Randwick City and UNSW/ES.
Prediction: Soft draw coming home will see them finish in second.
The Run Home: Manly Warringah (H), Gosford (A)
Analysis: Have had a very good year so far only losing four games, however, all losses have been against the two teams above them on the ladder. Shouldn’t be troubled in their final two games of the home and away season.
Prediction: By winning their last two games they will secure the double chance and finish third.
The Run Home: Manly Warringah (H), Moorebank (H), Manly Warringah (A)
Analysis: The Shamrocks have once again improved their performance in 2014 showing they can be competitive in matches against the top teams. Probably have the easiest run into the finals and should claim two wins as well as boosting their percentage.
Prediction: Can still finish in third but will need Penrith to lose one of their two games and will then go on percentage. Can’t see this happening and they will finish in fourth.
Randwick City Angels
The Run Home: Wollongong (H), Wollongong (A), Moorebank (A)
Analysis: Back to Back games against Wollongong will be very telling for the race for fifth spot. It will be important that the margin doesn’t get blown out with percentage looking likely to play a part. Might need a big win over Moorebank too secure fifth spot.
Prediction: Very unlikely to win more than the one game so apoor percentage may well come back to bite them and likely to finish sixth and fall agonisingly short of their first finals berth.
The Run Home: UNSW/ES (A), Southern Power (H)
Analysis: Have been the surprise packets of the season. After being 2 and 6 after eight rounds, their season looked over, but have stormed back into finals contention with a good second half of the year. Must beat UNSW/ES to be a chance for finals and Southern Power will a tough ask.
Prediction: If results go their way and they defeat UNSW/ES, their superior percentage will see them sneak into the finals. Fifth.
Following teams are out of finals contention.
The Run Home: Auburn (H), Wollongong (H)
Prediction: Will be looking to end Auburns final charge but can’t see them doing that. Will still finish seventh.
The Run Home: UTS (catch up - A), Penrith (A), UTS (H)
Prediction: Have impressed many in their first season which bodes well for 2015 and could be a chance of an upset late. Eighth
The Run Home: Southern Power (H), Penrith (H)
Prediction: Have the toughest run home and will be a tough final two weeks. Ninth
The Run Home: UTS (A), Randwick City (H)
Prediction: Will be looking to be competitive in their last two games. Last.
