Yorkshire 3 / Re: Predictions 29.02.20
« on: February 25, 2020, 12:20:33 PM »
Aireborough v Old Otliensians - Not that far to travel surely?
Baildon v Ossett - Baildon to keep the pressure on Knottingley with an easy enough home win.
Castleford v Leeds Corinthians - Leeds, but not by a lot. Cas on the up i am told?
Harrogate Pythons v Hemsworth - JOKER - Long day for Hemsworth
Knottingley v Wibsey (double header) - With 10 pts at stake, this game could have a big say on the final league standings. Depending how Wibsey travel, there could be an upset on the cards, but will take Knotts with home advantage. Should be a good game to watch, with neither team giving an inch.
Rotherham Phoenix v Sheffield Medicals - The students on current form should win this easy, but i'm never sure with Phoenix, especially at home, so will leave this alone

Harrogate Pythons v Wibsey - Pythons at home, but not by much. Will be a good battle.
Hemsworth v Aireborough - Have Aire packed in for the season already?
Leeds Corinthians v Halifax Vandals - Close at half time. Corinths by a couple of scores in the end.
Ossett v Castleford - The Cas pack will like the pitch. Cas by 7
Sheffield Medicals v Knottingley - JOKER - Knottingley by a few to keep the pressure on at the top
Old Otliensians v Baildon - OO's always at home

Aireborough v Harrogate Pythons - On paper it should be Pythons by a few, but Aire seem to be improving and Pythons doing the opposite. Will go with Pythons, but only cos i cant pick a winner at Cas.

Castleford v Old Otliensians - OO's at home, its a banker, away, who knows??

Halifax Vandals v Ossett - Home advantage. It will be wet and windy up there this week.

Knottingley v Skipton - Despite last weeks slight shock result for Skipton, Knottingley need to win to try and hold off Baildon in the fight for 2nd spot.

Rotherham Phoenix v Leeds Corinthians - Roth may well get dragged into the battle at the bottom. Cant see them getting much this week.

Wibsey v Sheffield Medicals - Don't think the students will enjoy the trip to Bradford

Baildon v Hemsworth - JOKER - Baildon by a few

Aireborough v Wibsey - Wibsey on a roll and can't see it stopping at Aire.

Hemsworth v Castleford - Based on recent results, Cas to sneak it by a score.

Leeds Corinthians v Knottingley - Not alot between the teams in the previous meetings. If the Leeds pack front up, with home advantage, i just about fancy them to win again but not by much.

Old Otliensians v Halifax Vandals - Always back OO's at home.

Ossett v Rotherham Phoenix - Another close one, but providing the game finishes, i expect Ossett to just about sneak it.

Skipton v Sheffield Medicals - JOKER - Meds to be too quick around the big Skipton field.

Harrogate Pythons v Baildon - If back to full strength Pythons by 10, if its the side i watched at Bramley last week, Baildon by 30. Will leave this one alone.

Aireborough v Knottingley -  Knottingley to get 50. Not looking good for Aire & Skipton

Rotherham Phoenix v Wibsey - Tough one to call, but subject to how they travel, Wibsey should have enough. Wibsey by a score

Ossett v Old Otliensians - I went and watched the game when the lad unfortunately got the injury last time. Ossett, i believe, were in the lead at the time of the call off, and from where i was stood they looked like they would be extending that lead in the last 20 rather than OO's coming back. Having said that, If OO's 10 & 15 can get hold of the ball a bit more regularly, i fancy OO's to win by a couple of scores

Houghton RUFC v Leeds Corinthians - Good luck lads!

Bramley Phoenix v Harrogate Pythons - Good young side Bramley. Not sure they will have enough to win this, but i expect them to win Y4 this year and if they keep the side together, finish in a respectable position in Y3 next season

Halifax Vandals v Hemsworth - Tough place to go. Vandals by 20
Harrogate Pythons v Castleford - Cas have certainly improved from the early part of the season, but Pythons will be too strong at home - Pythons by 15
Knottingley v Ossett - Ossett have surprised a few this year, but Knotts will be looking to get straight back on the horse - Knotts by 12
Rotherham Phoenix v Old Otliensians - OO's don't tend to travel but i still fancy them to have enough to win this - OO's by 8
Sheffield Medicals v Leeds Corinthians - Form suggest Corinths, but the students at home are tricky. Will leave this one
Wibsey v Skipton - Skipton in free fall. Wibsey by 20
Baildon v Aireborough - Joker - Baildon by more than a few

Old Otliensians v Knottingley - I fancy OO's to win this at home, but will leave it alone.

Water Boy seen as you mentioned the coffee was excellent at Knottingley, maybe we could hook up at one of the grounds and have a Ugandan Gold Blend together? Nutty Slack doing me a 10% discount so the coffee is on me!

When's the Cup game? Is that at Leeds? If so, pencil it in your diary pal. Will they do me a latte in downtown Miggy?

Very entertaining game yesterday - well reffed  in awful conditions.

Leeds looked  like the home side playing the small slope better, they kicked knottingley to death in the first half, scoring 2 tries and 2 penalties. Second half was all one way traffic but Leeds stopped knotts big 8 & 12  making yards and tackled well.  When knotts went wide fast they looked dangerous and scored 3 tries only converting 2. Scrums and lineouts  were even except for the 10mins when Leeds has a man in the bin.

Pretty much spot on this. Leeds defensively, were very good, and in the 1st half played the conditions almost to perfection with very few errors. 1st half Knotts gifted field position and Leeds capitalised. Leeds knocked on 3 times in the 2nd half and that gave Knotts the field position to come back. For Leeds, the 6, 8 & the 15 were outstanding, with the 12 & scrum capped 2nd rower the best for Knotts

For the neutral it was an excellent game, played in awful conditions. I've watched games at a supposedly higher level this year that were nowhere near that. It was well worth getting drenched for, and the coffee from the clubhouse wasn't bad either. Cheers to both teams.
