Well here we go again!

Alnwick at home should "see off" Malton quite comfortably--that will be 4 losses on the bounce for Malt!!

We should just sneak a home win against Penrith who seem to be better at home than away!

Cleck are on a roll---so they should win at home quite comfortably against P. Park.

Dinnington to win against Hudd YM!

Driffield v Mopeth is for me the pick of the weekend games---should be a "cracker", with Driffield to win.

Northern, although at home, will I think loose in a close game v West Hartlepool.

Local derby in "wessie land"---West Leeds will well "stuff" B & B at home!!

Alnwick v Malton & Norton- MN seem to be going through a rough patch.
Brid   v Penrith- curve ball Brid. Pen had 8,9,10missing v us so might be doing them a disservice.
Cleck v P P- be a great watch. I’d say Home advantage will tell.
Dinnington v Y.M. - less than 7 and I think it’ll be a high scoring affair.
Driffield v Morpeth - but only if Tarzan is playing. He takes some stopping
Northern v West Hartlepool - 4 decent players returned yesterday. So expecting to see there results improve.
West Leeds v Bradford & Bingley - got to back yourself at home. But we expect B’s to come at us hard. Last time we met we know we took some of the shine off their fantastic season

Can't help wodnering if the weather won't play a part this week plus teams will get lads back who have been away watching the Internationals.

Alnwick v Malton & Norton- Alnwick with some ease as M&N havbe lost two best players to injury and concussion.
Brid   v Penrith. Penrith should just shade this one unless the wind is blowing straight down the pitch.
Cleck v P P Cleck with a bonus point. Don't know what has happened to Park.
Dinnington v Y.M. - Dinnington by a small margin.
Driffield v Morpeth - Driff to get the better of the Morpeth front row.
Northern v West Hartlepool - Very tight but Northern to make home advantage count as West poor on the road this season.
West Leeds v Bradford & Bingley. West Leeds with some comfort.

Alnwick - M&N - M&N likely to continue their poor form Alnwick being formidable at home
Brid - Penrith - I reckon they could draw, Brid are good at home, Penrith not so great away at the moment, but have lots of lads coming back in, having said that it must be one of their longest trips of the season, unavailabilities inevitable
Cleck - PP - PP dont seem to have a game plan, they have a few good individuals but are not very cohesive, they were a bit soft in D as well when we played them, better in attack, for that reason id say cleck to win
Dinnington - YM - After they spanked us i would be hard pressed to predict anything other than a home win.
Northern - WH - No idea what WH are like, Northern were great hosts but it was really hard to draw too many conclusions from the game as the man in the middle made a number of questionable decisions and wanted to make it about him in what was an error ridden match. They might feel a bit sore and come out firing so ill say home win
WL - BB - Cant imagine it will be the same lads we played in the Shield final a couple of years ago, some serious stuff gone down there since!  :o always back yourself at home tho
Rugby may have many problems, but the gravest is undoubtedly that of the persistence of summer

Alnwick v Malton & Norton: M&N were poor vs Cleck at the weekend, the scoreline flattered the home side with Cleck taking their foot off the gas at 41-12 up. Coupled with a few injuries, Alnwick at home will walk this one

Bridlington v Penrith: Brid gave a strong showing away at Morpeth, at home in wintery conditions they may just have enough to win this one

Cleck v Percy Park: Cleck are now playing with confidence, finally. However, still room for improvement on last weekends performance, they took their foot off the gas at 41-12 up with 10mins to go and let M&N score a losing BP,  home advantage, against a faltering PP side should see a 5pt win this week

Dinnington v Hudds YMCA: Dinningtons pack will be the deciding factor in this encounter. YM will not like playing on the narrow pitch, look out for it being mentioned 5-6 times in their match report should they lose this one!

Driffield v Morpeth: Potentially the game of the round? There will be 1-2 points in this one I reckon, home advantage telling in the end

Northern v West Hartlepool: Northern are due a win, by all accounts they were unlucky not to beat WL at the weekend, they will use that defeat to help them win at home this week
West Leeds v Bradford & Bingley: WL should be too strong at home for B&B, but its a local derby so form could go out of the window, but with  the WL 10 pulling the strings I cant see them losing this one at home

alnwick v M&N: home win + 7

brid v penrith: brid to win -7. reckon the pitch will be a bog and brid to edge this slightly
dinnington v PP: i think this will be a close game

driffield v morpeth: again close game but reckon morpeth will have too much

northern v WH: havent seen WH play but from recent results i reckon at home northern will pip this one

WL v B&B: local derby and B&B will be looking to settle the score after losing the shield final to WL. but reckon WL will take this.

tough round to pick the winners for each game with recent results.
