Div 1 - Grand Final Preview
Kentwell. HH vs Blue Mountains. This is the big one people. I think this could be the best Kentwell Grand final in the last decade. The pain of losing last year will spur on HH here. Great win last week against a very strong Waverley outfit. Alot of mistakes gave Blueys a headstart in the Major Semi and its hard to chase a game which led to the score blowing out slightly at the end. That wont be happening again. Blue Mountains have some great players across the park and a very good year with recruitment of talent in all the right positions. A strong Blue Mountains means a strong competition. Back with your heart and your head. Facta Non Verba. HH 33-31
Burke. Colleagues vs Drummoyne. Colleagues are a very clinical side. Losing only the first round game of the year. They have won close games, they have blown out teams by 50. Seems like they can do it all. Drummoyne are much improved from where they were last year. Strong recruitment, X factor all over the park. Seem like a well coached and well drilled team this year. Colleagues to keep Drummoyne at an arms distance for most of the game. Colleagues 28-20
Barbour. Forest vs Colleagues. Straight sets St Pats had this cup in the clubhouse a month ago. Forest and Colleagues have two very good young squads. This game will be entertaining. Colleagues played their Grand final last week. Ill give the boys from Melwood a win here in a high scoring affair. Forest 35-28
Whiddon. Waverley vs Colleagues. Waverley have a great third grade squad. Alot of talent in this team and strike across the park. Colleagues are a well drilled team. I think Waverley get the chocolates after losing the first two games of the day. Let the boys get back on the bus around Midday and celebrating at Bondi by mid afternoon. Waverley 24-21
Judd. Mosman vs Waverley. Mosman will again prove too strong in this 4's contest. Waverley have a really good group of players in the lower grades, although I hjave heard a few outs in 3's have weakened their 4's side slightly. Waverley will need everything to go right to upset the Mosman lower grades juggernaut. Mosman 22-12
Sutherland. Mosman vs Waverley. Mosman lost by 1 in the Major Semi with 2 in the bin and playing the better football. I dont see them making the same mistake twice. Should name this the Mosman cup given their stranglehold over this grade for the past 6 years. Not the same team as last year and I understand alot of those players are playing Judd where they are the standard of Burke or higher. Waverley always strong and will keep this close. I see a low scoring affair. Mosman 12-10
Great analysis. Kentwell shaping to be a cracker of a match. Hopefully early nerves are shaken off and we get to see some expansive Rugby.
Hope there are no major injuries or sideline punch ons. I wonder if we will see some added security for these fixtures.
