What are ur predictions?
to better understand all the ins & outs for the season, need to see how each club lines up for rnd1.
after rnd1 we should ve a better understanding of who is what.
Alright folks, take it easy on me. Always fraught with danger making such predictions, even more so when all the ins & outs are up in the air before the first game of the season. Considering all those excuses here is where I reckon they’ll finish. Will revise these during the season.
NTH A1 (Guesstimates)
(1-4) Haig Fawkner – finals contender, stiff last year not to make it with 7 wins. Should make the 4 this season.
(2-5) Taylors Lakes – Had a great season, they would be very disappointed if they don’t make the 4 again.
(2-5) Aberfeldie – lost couple of old heads, don’t wanna be losing their OS player Perrera. Godsell is captain I hear. If he plays all games it’ll be a big plus. Should make the 4.
(3-7) Craigieburn – 5th last year. Finals contender. Don’t be surprised if they make it.
(3-7) St Albans – Good ol St Albans. Hazard to say finals contender. looked Nth B bound at few stages last season. If they spend their coin well then should feature in the 4.
(4-7) Glenroy – Nth B premiers. Runs will be a problem. Too few stand up with bat. Bowlers will do OK. Middle of the road finish.
(5-8) Merlynston Hadfield - Nth B finalists. Mid table in Nth A. Should be competitive.
(8-10) St Francis de Sales – Sorry lads. Will be in the relegation battle with couple of others. But I think u lot might just keep ur heads above water.
(8-10) St Andrews Pascoe Vale – had a good season in Nth B but will do well to stay up in Nth A. lacking depth in bowling. Batters steady, did a good job last season but ? to stay up.
(8-10) Avondale Heights – Sorry fellas. 1X1 Player exodus, including their two best. Nth B runners-up lost their best strike bowler to Westmeadows & may be their best bat who made 1000 runs. Not many teams can recover from that. If they had the same side as last season then would be very competitive but will struggle to stay up if they can’t replace the two big outs.
again, apologies to those who I guessed would struggle but it's all a ? at this time of year. no one knows, it's all in ur own hands. Good Luck!
