There are some interesting fixtures in M1W this week with 2nd v 3rd, and mid table teams having the opportunity to move up the table at the expense of near rivals. Our prediction race is close a five point gap, which can be wiped out in one game. Last week, I mentioned that there were a couple of sides which caused us both problems in September, and it will be little surprise that we agree on 5 of the 6 games, and it is Stourbridge Lions who are involved in the game we disagree on.
Newbold on Avon v Stourbridge Lions: I’ve backed the home side and Neil is on the Lions again. A look at the table shows two records that are very similar, in fact the main difference is that Lions have won two and NoA have drawn two, the rest is almost identical. So our trusted coins were tossed on this one, will home advantage be the key?
Next is the Constable Dai Game, Kenilworth v DK; we do not predict DK games, but in many ways it is the most interesting fixture of the week with second v third and very similar playing records both have 19 points from their four games. It should be a cracker, come and join us.
The remaining fixtures we agree on.
Hereford v Worcester: Home win, form and the journey all point to Hereford for this one.
Lichfield v Whitchurch: Home win, Lichfield are with SoT as the only two sides to have recorded a try bonus point in each game. We both expect Whitchurch to turn the corner and make their way up the table, but not this week.
Ludlow v Sutton Coldfield: Ludlow have made a good start after promotion, and we expect them to continue this at the expense of Sutton, once again form and home advantage being the key factors.
Kidderminster v Droitwich: Away win, Kiddy should target this game, but Droitwich have lost to three of the top four, so they will also being looking for the points. It has to be Droitwich for us.
Old Halesonians v Stoke on Trent: Away win, both teams will be after the points, and we expect it to be a high scoring game. With SoT on a roll at the moment we have both gone with them.
It will be interesting to see which of the teams are first and second after the games.
