    Really good to see a close competition. I still think Manly or Illawarra will win in

    Cabramatta had 7 players selected for SG Ball - 2 for Parra, 2 for Roosters, 2 for Manly and 1 for Balmain.

    Manly will be up there but Illawarra? I think Parramatta will be in the mix again, outside of those two its relatively close. Central Coast have been really good so far and the sharks are always looming around.

    With 4 games to go we could be looking at a refreshing rotation of teams in the finals Especially in S.G. Ball. Excluding Manly Parramatta Cronulla and illawarra of course but having a current top 8 that includes Central Coast, Balmain and especially St George is great for the competition.

    If there's one thing I've figured out about these comps it's that anything can change very quickly. Dogs and Dragons were top two weeks ago in Matts and have slid big time for example

    I think you mean S.G. Ball and the Dogs have dropped back but the Dragons still sit in the 4. Dogs will struggle to make the Finals with games against Parramatta and Central Coast coming up. St George will need to beat Norths this week then they have a tough home run with Illawarra, Penrith, Cronulla however those sides are not the powers they used to be especially Penrith.

    8 different clubs representing the u16s and 18s semi finals this Saturday 27/4.

    SG BALL
    (1) Manly vs Central Coast (3) - Campbelltown 1pm
    (2) Illawarra vs Parramatta (4) - Campbelltown 11.30am

    Manly and Illawarra heavy favourites to proceed.

    MATTYS
    (1) Newcastle vs Penrith (6) - St Marys 12pm
    (2) Souths vs Canterbury (4) - Campbelltown 2.30pm

    A little less open in the 16s. Panthers had a surprisingly big win last week vs Manly. Souths vs Canterbury is a coin toss too.

    Grand Finals at Western Sydney Stadium Saturday 4th May

    Picky I know but this weekend is preliminary finals - semis were last week.

    So the grand final day is at Bankwest? I'm hoping the Wests Tigers Tarsha Cup team win through so I can have a reason to go back to the ground.

    Seems unlikely, I imagine they'd have announced it if it were to be the case. I'd expect it'd be somewhere like Leichhardt or Kogarah. We'll find out on Saturday or Sunday most likely.

    It's normally been Leichhardt in last few seasons (one was at Penrith), but the word I have is it will be at WSS

    Saturday
    ----------------------------------
    Preliminary Finals results

    SG Ball u18
    Manly 24 - 12 Central Coast
    Illawarra 26 - Parramatta 22

    Manly were down 6-12 at HT. A bit of cockiness from the CC boys in the tunnel came back to bite them. A scoreless 2nd half from them as Manly overrun them in the 2nd half in front of their rabid fans. Can't see Illawarra beating them next week. They needed a last gasp try to defeat Parra. Heartbreak for the Parra boys but that's sudden death footy.

    Prediction: Manly 28 - Illawarra 10

    HM Matts u16
    Newcastle 20 - 6 Penrith
    South Sydney 30 - 36 Canterbury

    Didn't see the Newcastle/Penrith match as it was at St Marys. Souths got the first try and signs looked ominous for Canterbury, but 3 or 4 successive sets of penalties and subsequent poor defending from Souths had Canterbury 20-6 up in the first half. Comeback seemed on the cards but ill-discipline once again cost the young Rabbits.

    Prediction: Newcastle 22 - Canterbury 16
