DIV 3 Half Season Wrap
Pros – Dream start to 50th year celebrations sitting number 1 across 1s, 3s and colts and 2nd in 2s. Appearing to have player depth as far as the eye can see and should be everywhere come Grand Final day. You would think a real chance for the quadrella? Four of six at home so will be all but unbeatable.
Cons – Notoriously poor late season finishes whom always lose momentum after the June long weekend. This year will player depth help them lift, surely!
Verdict – this year they are the real deal and anything other than a minimum two Premierships would be a failure + all but guaranteed a DIV 2 spot should they want to go up.
Pros – Strong 1s and 2s who have topped up with a handful of handy Emus.
Cons - No club depth. Colts and 3s are rubbish and if encounter any injuries could become vulnerable.
Verdict - Should make an impact finals time in the higher grades.
Pros – Plenty of numbersand a young skilful player base.
Cons – tough trip home with away games against HAC, BOBS and Iggies.
Verdict – no reason why they cannot have all teams in the semis from here but cannot see a Premiership for them this year.
Pros – a club with a history of getting it together come finals time.
Cons – appear to be in rebuilding phaseafter some retirements.
Verdict – will be around in lower grades and colts come finals time.
Pros – Strong colts squad laying a solid future foundation. Will come home strong with favourable back half draw.
Cons – Similar to Iggies, rebuilding 1st grade with no real size across the grades.
Verdict – Expect their lower grades and colts to be there or thereabouts come GF time.
Pros – Have managed to revive their 1st grade side by attracting faraway talent mid-season yet again.
Cons – Have zero depth and it appears the colts who shouldered the early season burden of backing up game after game have hit a form or injury slump.
Verdict – think their 1s might sneak into semis but will be 1st out.
Pros – have plenty of big boppas and win over ROBs makes them chance at 1st semis.
Cons – have 4 of 6 away.
Verdict - 4th grade might make an appearance come semi’s time and 1s might surprise the world.
Pros – Proud club doing all they can to see the season through
Cons – Too many to list but hope they can overcome them
Verdict – Will be a sign of their resilience and courage if they can see the season out without forfeiting a grade.
