Run Home - Division Five

Nor-West

Currently: 1st

The Run Home: Penrith (A), UTS (H)

Analysis: In a coup for the club, Nor-West will have two sides in finals action in 2014. With a great percentage, they will only need to win one of their final two to seal top spot. They face a tough match against Penrith away from home next weekend.

Prediction: Minor Premiers despite losing to Penrith.

 

Camden

Currently: 2nd

The Run Home: Blacktown (A), Moorebank (A)

Analysis: Like Nor-West, Camden should have two sides in the finals. Both remaining games are away from home, including a massive clash against Blacktown which could determine whether they seal a double chance.

Prediction: Tipping Blacktown to win at home which would mean they need to win every finals game to clinch the premiership.

 

Penrith

Currently: 3rd

The Run Home: Nor-West (H), UNSW/ES (A)

Analysis: Penrith have had a strong season to date and like many, their clash next weekend at home to Nor-West is crucial to their hopes in the finals. Should defeat UNSW/ES in the final round who will only be playing for pride.

Prediction: Penrith to be one of the big winners of the final fortnight. Second and a double chance beckons.

 

Blacktown

Currently: 4th

The Run Home: Camden (H), Holroyd-Parramatta (A)

Analysis: All eyes will be on their clash with Camden as they look to seal a double chance. Their final round trip to Holroyd-Parramatta will provide a good confidence booster ahead of their finals campaign.

Prediction: Will win their remaining two to jump to the hotly-contested third position.

 

Sydney University

Currently: 5th

The Run Home: Holroyd-Parramatta (A), North Shore (H)

Analysis: The Students enjoy the softest run home of any side as they play the bottom two sides.

Prediction: Cannot finish anywhere but fifth.

 

Below teams are out of finals contention

UNSW/ES

Currently: 6th

The Run Home: North Shore (H), Penrith (H)

Prediction: The Bulldogs should beat North Shore to seal sixth place.

 

UTS

Currently: 7th

The Run Home: Moorebank (H), Nor-West (A)

Prediction: Home ground advantage should equal a win against Moorebank which keeps them in seventh.

 

Moorebank

Currently: 8th

The Run Home: UTS (A), Camden (H)

Prediction: If they can knock off UTS, they will jump to seventh. Unlikely.

 

North Shore

Currently: 9th

The Run Home: UNSW/ES (A), Sydney University (A)

Prediction: Will provide some opposition to sides fifth and sixth on the ladder in their final fortnight, but won’t win any.

 

Holroyd-Parramatta

Currently: 10th

The Run Home: Sydney University (H), Blacktown (H)

Prediction: Playing at home will be the only positive out of the final fortnight.
