Ron Massey Cup previews Rd 8
It's the perfect timing for some open and entertaining footy with the first dry weekend in the last month. With most attention on the junior reps Grand Finals on Saturday, there are still some pivotal matches that will significantly shape the Ron Massey Cup ladder.
There is no more vital match then Sunday’s fixture as Wentworthville host Mounties at Ringrose Park at 1.20pm. This clash has the first-placed Mounties up against the third-placed Wenty, with both teams being the only two remaining undefeated teams.
Wenty are coming off a good win against the Western Suburbs Magpies, while Mounties, who haven’t played in the best part of a month, last overcame fellow top-four side Asquith.
No matter what the result is on Sunday, it means that one of these teams will lose their undefeated status. Leaving the winning team with a firm favouritism tag.
In another fantastic game for the Ron Massey Cup on Sunday, Asquith host Windsor at Storey Park at 3.00pm. This battle sees the second-placed Windsor against the fourth-placed Asquith. Both teams have only lost the one match and are looking to consolidate their positions in the top four.
Windsor are coming off a tight win last week against Western Suburbs and will try and keep their momentum going, while Asquith haven’t had a game for three weeks. Asquith’s last game and only loss of the season was against Mounties on the 18th of April, and they are hoping that this extended break has allowed their players to freshen up rather than drop off.
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.
With a fairly disruptive month of footy due to the weather, it will be very interesting to see which teams will hit the ground running.
This weekend’s other matches of the Ron Massey Cup include Concord Burwood hosting Guildford, Auburn facing Western Suburbs, and Blacktown battle Cabramatta leaving Kingsgrove with the bye.
