There are five games this weekend to complete round seven, with the wet weather ensuing. This will almost guarantee the fact that these matches will be tough old school mud bath games, with lower scores then what we have seen in the first six rounds.
With four teams tied at the top of the ladder on ten points, and with all four having at least one game in hand on fifth, there is definitely a small breakaway group showing their dominance so far this season. Therefore, it is extremely important for the mid table teams to start stringing some wins together to make sure they stay in touch with the top of the table.
This week’s feature match in the Ron Massey Cup is sure to be an absolute nail biter with the battle of the Magpies, Asquith and Wentworthville. Both teams are on ten points, with Wenty still remaining undefeated after five matches. while Asquith have had a bye and the solitary loss.
After a tough grinding win last week by the undefeated Wenty, and Asquith coming off a week on the sidelines, it will be very interesting to see who comes out on top. The contrast between both teams' preparation provides some unpredictability about the outcome of this one.
Opinion is wide spread as to whether a tough game or a week off is better before a blockbuster match. It often depends on a variety of aspects such as injuries and player burnout, but there is no doubt all the factors point towards a great match between these two strong teams on the weekend.
The match will be played at Storey Park at 3:00pm on Sunday and if you are unable to attend the match it will be broadcast over Triple HHH 100.1FM radio for any supporters who are unable to make the game.
The first weekend in May’s other matches of the Ron Massey Cup include Concord Burwood hosting Mounties, and Western Suburbs facing Windsor, Kingsgrove battling Blacktown and Cabramatta challenging the Guildford Owls.
