This is the thread for all things Barclay Shield, good luck to the clubs competing in the grade.
I think there'll be more interest in who gets relegated seeing Creek and Riverside are lock ins to play off in the GF ( with Creek winning). One big club will fall and I'm predicting Lower Eltham,Op and bund United all to go.who cares we know whose gonna win this year
Absolutely no team is a lock. Riverside have recruited well, but if they play a side in the semi and that side puts on 100+ look out.I don't see Riverside as a complete lock for the flag, unlike most. Don't get me wrong, I still tip them to win it, but Diamond Creek who have been very strong for a few years, won the flag last year, and have also recruited extremely well. As have Research for that matter. Both of whom could easily play off in the Grand Final. I am hearing whispers that Macleod could also have a handy recruit or two.
I think its going to be a very interesting situation at both ends of the ladder this year.
