With the remaining seasons fixtures into single figures the fight for top 8
places is about to intensify.|
Here are my views on this weeks fixtures.
FC v. REDS
The unpredictable Reds visit the Reef this week looking to build on a solid
win last time out.
For the hosts Birds eye Agar will be hoping his shoal can show some mussle
and get some wind into their top 8 sails.
The hosts will be desperate to put pressure on the teams above them and get
daylight between those beneath them after losing last time out.
The Reds will be difficult to beat this week but they just don't have enough
sole to net the win.

WOLVES v. GIANTS
A huge clash at the Ikea Jones with both looking to maintain their top 2
The visitors got back on track with an easy win against the plastic Taffs
last time out and they'll be desperate to prove they can play with out the
The hosts cruised last week in Rock ridge but the biggest bite came from
their disappointed coach who will expect better this week.
A fiery match and great match up but without their lucky 7 all that will be
left for the visitors is the usual whinge form their coach at F/T.
Plenty of action but the hosts will be way too strong.

CRUSADERS v. KR
The hosts welcome the rejuvenated Robins to Wrexham this week.
The Red Mullets have eased the pressure on coach Morgan with some big wins
in recent weeks and this looks another nailed on 2 pts.
The hosts will be desperate to get a win and will be boosted by the news of
the signing of the Bald Destroyer for the next 2 yrs but he can't help them
An end-to-end game but once again I expect the hosts to fall short of the
HKR by 16.

QUINS v. WARRIORS
The whipping boys welcome Rat Boy and co this week to the "sarf".
The champions are riding their luck with recent wins but they'll not be
worried about that this week.
The headlines about RL in fine health down south is the one positive the
hosts can take out of a poor year because they won't get anything else this
A cruise for the Pies.

TIGERS v. BULLS
The deliverance cast welcome Potters pub team this week that returned to
their natural level last week in defeat to 12 men.
The hosts will be hopeful of a hoe down this week after a spirited effort in
the Pie dome in mid-week.
Every now and again the pothole dwellers perform above their station but
that won't happen this week as once again they come up short.
The fiddles will be on fire and banjoes will be dualling as the high 6's and
dozy does last into the next fixture.

DRAGONS v. RHINOS
This week the Blue 'n' Amber arrive in the Dragons lair in much better
spirits after a much improved performance in the pie-dome where they were
The Fire of the hosts will prove to another huge test of the Rhinos resolve
and another chance to show they have turned the corner in a thus far
General Dureau will really have his les enfants fired up it's time for us to
"step up" and show some consistency and prove that this team is better than
the performances and results are suggesting.
A cracker in prospect but I expect the Rhino will extinguish the fire of the
Rhinos by 10.

WILDCATS v. SAINTS
After showing their fatigue in recent weeks the last thing JK's unloved need
is to face the KFC kid and his mates.
The spirit and endeavor of the hosts can't be questioned but the lack of
depth and quality has finally reared it's head at Belle Vue and it's gonna
be a long couple of months.
The scousers will just have too much across the park and will show no mercy.
