Yorkshire Vase
« on: November 07, 2018, 11:57:34 PM »
So with Burley beating Bramley 25 - 5 already and Leeds Corinthians v Hessle postponed that leaves us 6 cup games to be played this weekend, assuming no walkovers. Not for the predictions league so just for fun this week.

Aireborough v Wensleydale
Castleford v Stanley Rodillians
Halifax Vandals v Baildon
Harrogate Pythons v Knottingley
Marist v Rotherham Phoenix
Wibsey v Ossett

Always tough to predict cup games but here goes:
Aireborough v Wensleydale - as long as Dale travel at full strength I’ll go away win.
Castleford v Stanley Rodillians - should either be a big home win or a home walkover.
Halifax Vandals v Baildon - Vandals should be too strong for Baildon at home.
Harrogate Pythons v Knottingley - form book goes with us but Knottingley are always a tough game, as was proven when they turned us over earlier in the season.
Marist v Rotherham Phoenix - got away walkover written all over it but could be a cricket score if the game is played.
Wibsey v Ossett - could be game of the round with both teams unbeaten in Yorkshire 4. Knowing nothing about these teams I’ll go with home advantage.

Aireborough v Wensleydale
Dale should manage a win here.

Castleford v Stanley Rodillians
With Rods only managing 2 wins in Y4 and Cas having a good season got to go with the home team. Hopefully Rods travel.

Halifax Vandals v Baildon
Vandals starting to pick up a bit of form?

Harrogate Pythons v Knottingley
Gate looking like they could be contenders for promotion, they should be strong enough to overcome Knots.

Marist v Rotherham Phoenix
Hopefully Marist don't pull out, should be a good win for Phoenix unless they take their 2nds

Wibsey v Ossett
Game of the round, Ossett have a better points difference so ill go with them.

Could be a few upsets this round with players at HQ

Aireborough v Wensleydale - Dale will have too much.
Castleford v Stanley Rodillians - HWO
Halifax Vandals v Baildon - Got a decent team together this week. Hopefully that will translate into converting some of the opportunities we've left out on the pitch the last two games. Never taken Baildon lightly though and never will, they always show up against us.
Harrogate Pythons v Knottingley - Pythons on the form of this season, though I think Knottingley, like ourselves, will want to do well in the cup this season.
Marist v Rotherham Phoenix - AWO
Wibsey v Ossett - Coin tossed and it said Wibsey.

Aireborough v Wensleydale - Dale were good at the breakdown last week and got a lot of penalties through it, think they should have enough to turn over Aire.
Castleford v Stanley Rodillians - If it's played, Cas.
Halifax Vandals v Baildon - Think Vandals have had a similar start to us this season struggled to get going and get the right players on the pitch but when they can are a good team, home win but close.
Harrogate Pythons v Knottingley - Harrogate in good form after we last visited them on the opening day, should be another good contest again with a few back this week.
Marist v Rotherham Phoenix - Never heard of Marist so anyone's guess! Will go with Phoenix who have done well this season.
Wibsey v Ossett - Again never played either of these so another stab in the dark will go with Wibsey.

Good luck Thorne aswell.

Aireborough v Wensleydale   -   Would expect a Wensleydale win by a few here.

Castleford v Stanley Rodillians   -   Easy home win / home walkover

Halifax Vandals v Baildon   -   Started to look a bit better in the last couple of games. Still no where near our full potential though, but backing us at home in another close one.

Harrogate Pythons v Knottingley   -   Expecting a really close one here. Harrogate started better than I thought they would. Knotts always tough. Home advantage by a couple of points. 

Marist v Rotherham Phoenix   -   Away walkover written all over it! If not, a huge away win.

Wibsey v Ossett   -   Both look to going well in Y4. Wibsey probably have the tougher side of the Y4 split though, so I'm backing them.


Good luck all, especially Thorne representing Yorkshire in the national cup.

Great game at Wibsey. Ossett raced 24-0 up in the first 25mins and woke up the sleeping dragon. Wibsey got a bit try and penalty to make it 24-10 at half-time. Started the 2nd half how they finished the 1st and ended worthy winners 46-24

Grottingley with ringers in or Gate understrength?

Any other results?
