I thought one of the Vikings back rowers was impressive in Oakman-Hunts absence allen? someone said he played for wests last year? Vikings pack was pretty dominant they seem to have addressed some of the set piece issues that plagued them last year.
So two weeks in - is it a fair bet to say the premiership will be fought out between Tuggies, Royals and Qbn with Eagles and Wests fighting out to see who goes out first week in the finals. Set for a great battle to see if Easts can give the spoon to unis.
Anyone seen anything to suggest otherwise?
haha as long as we're completely overreacting and calling it early. It looks like a two horse race with Royals slight favorites over tuggies to win the premiership.
Just judging only by the scores and having not watched any of the other games there is a huge gap between the two teams mentioned above and the rest of the pack.
QBN will finish third managing to consistently beat the eagles, wests, uni-norths and easts throughout the year.
Easts will finish 4th upsetting gungahlin on at least one occasion, finishing the job against Wests and notching up another win against university.
Gungahlin will finish 5th having lost at least once to each of wests and easts and then not able to pick up wins against QBN, tuggies or royals. They'll miss out on the four narrowly perhaps even on for and against.
Wests will finish in 6th having notched up an upset win against Gungahlin, staying close in games with tuggies, QBN and royals and notching up a couple of wins against Uni-Norths they do enough to avoid the spoon.
Uni-Norths finish with the spoon. A tough year for the owls unable to build on a solid 2017 they are never able to find their form and are unable to consistently beat any of the other teams in the competition. They take gungahlin to the wire in each game but are unable to come away with a win they do however steal one from wests.
Uni Norths vs Tuggeranong- Vikings by 9
Royals vs Gungahlin - Royals by at least 40
Wests vs Queanbeyan - Queanbeyan by 10
Easts have the BYE, a good chance for them to rest up.
I was impressed by Uni last weekend and I think that they can really hang in there against Tuggeranong this weekend. Very much looking forward to seeing how Dara respond after their last effort. I think we'll see a fired up Western Districts at Jamison/the feeding grounds on their Ladies Day. I'd imagine that they are desperate to get back on the field after they gave up a 19 point lead to draw with Easts.
Fair hit, just a massive noise that went with it.
There was a few minutes off while he was attended to and walked off with the medics.
