Predictions 04.09.21 (with predictions competition)
« on: August 29, 2021, 11:18:28 AM »
Here we go with the 1st week of the season. A reminder on how the predictions competition works:
- Pick 6 results out of the 7 games to predict. This is so people don’t have to bet on their own team but can if they want to.
- Pick one result as your joker to be worth double points (no restrictions on how often you can pick one team)
- You can predict a draw if you want.
- Add a couple of comments as to why you’ve made your predictions to keep some level of banter.
- If you miss a week here and there you'll be automatically given whatever the lowest score was that week.
- Feel free to make any general comments/banter even if you don’t want to make any predictions.
- Anyone welcome, not just those from Y3

Predictions below please. Highlight in bold or comment your winning team. Put a J for your joker. I’ll post first below as a demo. Any questions or queries just post below and I'll answer.

Here's the fixtures:
Barnsley v West Park Leeds
Castleford v Halifax Vandals
Harrogate Pythons v Bramley Phoenix
Knottingley v Burley
Old Otliensians v Skipton
Ossett v Sheffield Medics
Wibsey v Hemsworth

Good luck all!

Difficult to call really as so much could have changed for the better or worse over the last 18 months, I imagine there’ll be a fair few surprise results early on in the season. Good luck everyone!

Barnsley v West Park Leeds - both teams will be wanting to make a statement early doors as they look to bounce back up. Don’t really know either team so will go with home advantage
Castleford v Halifax Vandals - Cas finished last season strongly and have had a couple of good pre-season results so think they’ll have too much for Vandals
Harrogate Pythons v Bramley Phoenix - Bramley were a completely different side when we played them in the cup last season and seemed to have a handy team as well. Think they’ll do well this year so we’ll have to be at our best to get the result.
Knottingley v Burley - should be a routine home win this one.
Old Otliensians v Skipton - Ensians are typically very good at home so think they’ll have too much around the park for Skipton.
Ossett (J) v Sheffield Medics - Medics generally don’t have a full complement this early in the season and Ossett will want to lay down a marker at their new ground. Comfortable home win.
Wibsey v Hemsworth - Wibsey play their own pitch very well and Hemsworth don’t usually travel too well so going for a home win.

Barnsley v West Park Leeds - Hear WPL are struggling to raise a side. Will see if its Chinese whispers or not.
Castleford v Halifax Vandals - NC
Harrogate Pythons v Bramley Phoenix - Harrogate will be up there at the end of the season I reckon.
Knottingley v Burley - Worms will be wormy. Don't think Burley will like it all too much.
Old Otliensians v Skipton - OO again are pretty consistent season to season.
Ossett v Sheffield Medics - Students are learning from home this year aren't they?
Wibsey v Hemsworth - Home advantage to see this out.

Just remind me of the scoring system - as in are you doing + or - 7 match score? How many points do you get for a correct prediction - presumably doubled if a joker played? Do you do one exact score prediction, or is that a step too far?

Barnsley - Both come down so don't know much about either, so home win will do.
Cas - Both abit naff, will go with the ugly step sister up the M62.
Showergate - Reckon will be too much for newly promoted Bramley.
Worms - Go worms!
OO - Skipton were horrendous last season, think OO could put a cricket score on them. (J)
Ossett - All students will be still hungover from 1 can of Kopperberg from freshers.

Just predict the winner of each game. One point per correct prediction, 2 points on your joker. Pick 6 results from the 7 fixtures so no-one has to bet on their own result, though they can do if they want. No exact scores, margins or anything like that required though you can have a guess at that if you want.

Right here’s  the scores from the new boy.
Barnsley v west Park- Leeds tykes struggle to get a side ye right! But I still take Barnsley by 14
Castleford v Vandals- purely based on start of season and travel Cas by 12
Harrogate v Bramley- hope we perform good luck to our boys
Worms v Burley - got to be worms by 16
Otley v skipton - otley by 14
Ossett v medics - still take ossett even without the star man I am guessing, hope the injury isn’t too bad.

Glad to get back to Saturdays as they should be !

Do you want to add a joker to one of your predictions? Double points if you get that one right.

Good to be back fellas! Always a stab in the dark first few weeks figuring out who are the stronger teams but here goes.

Barnsley v West Park Leeds - Bit of an unknown with both coming down so not seen either in donkeys years, will go with a home win.
Castleford v Halifax Vandals - Not sure about this en gunna give it a miss, still a bit warm for the Orcs though this time of year.
Harrogate Pythons v Bramley Phoenix - Pythons are usually a strong outfit every year, tough opener for Bramley.
Knottingley v Burley - Lots of new faces in the worms this year but confident we can give a good account of ourselves. Never played Burley so not a clue but gotta back yourself.
Old Otliensians J v Skipton - Ensians always a tough place to go with their strong runners and Skipton usually not brilliant away.
Ossett v Sheffield Medics - Will depend if the medical men have returned to their dorms, I doubt all of them will have, Ossett to make the most of it.
Wibsey v Hemsworth - Should be a feisty affair this one and could go either way, I'll be boring and stick to home advantage.

Good luck for the season to everyone, nearly 2 years away enjoy it.

Barnsley v West Park Leeds Just a hunch, and i hope Barnsley win anyway
Castleford v Halifax Vandals - close game , will take Cas at home
Harrogate Pythons v Bramley Phoenix Pythons were getting stronger before Covid , looks like that has continued
Knottingley v Burley unsure as to how strong the worms will be , always favorites at home (joker)
Old Otliensians v Skipton OO's to take the spoils in the derby
Ossett v Sheffield Medics  Always back yourselves - the medics won our 4 team tournament a couple of months ago , so certainly wouldn't bet against them
Wibsey v Hemsworth Wibsey just, but only because they are at home

Some cracking games first up , all the above could well be wrong , its all guess work , good luck to all , hope to visit your places throughout the season

Burley have unfortunately cancelled already due to a positive covid test from one of their lads who came off holiday. Didn't think that card would be used so early but this could be a very slippery slope for the rest of the season if the covid excuse is allowed to go unchecked, this could turn in to a very long season. Ahh well Friday night beers for the worms! I trust Burley are being honest but this could open a big can of worms for any team that doesn't fancy playing a certain game.
