Ron Massey Cup Previews Rd 12
Most of the games that were washed out earlier in the season due to torrential Sydney weather will be made up for this weekend.
Mounties are clear leaders on the Ron Massey Cup ladder by four competition points and are yet to lose a game.
Along with Mounties - Asquith and Wentworthville will play this weekend to make up missed games. Despite having played less matches than the other teams in the competition – these three teams currently take the top three positions on the ladder.
The Concord-Burwood v Mounties clash was washed out in round four, which means they will come together this Saturday at Goddard Park at 2pm.
Mounties will be looking to continue their perfect start to the season, and further themselves from the other teams on the competition ladder.
At the same time, Concord-Burwood are currently sitting in ninth position, and are four competition points away from the top eight. The two teams sitting above them however have played an extra match; therefore this match is a perfect chance to get in touching distance with those sides.
The second game in the spare round will see the Kingsgrove Colts host the Blacktown Workers at Hurstville Oval this Saturday at 2:30pm.
The Colts are yet to win a game, and will be desperate to get off the bottom of the ladder with a win this weekend. They have struggled with both attack and defence so far this season – so it will be an almighty effort if they are to upset the workers this Saturday.
The Workers are currently sitting in sixth spot, but a big win could see them charge into the top four at the completion of the round, depending on the result of the Wentworthville v Cabramatta game being played the next day.
That game will be at Ringrose Park at 3pm, which will be the third and final game of the round.
Wentworthville are certainly in form, having only lost one game for the season thus far. However, Cabramatta are coming off good wins against Blacktown, Kingsgrove and Concord-Burwood, and are slowly starting to build some momentum heading towards the middle of the season.
Wentworthville will want to win this game to stay in touch with Mounties at the top of the ladder, whilst Cabramatta have the benefit of an excellent 62-point for and against, so a win could potentially force them straight into the top four.
