Division One Youth League Round 18 Review

The weather gods were good to us and all the games were played this weekend, bringing the now customary share of “shock” results that are keeping everyone guessing each and every week.

There is still such a long way to go in this season that it would be futile to even guess at the composition of the top five for each of the age groups at this stage. The only certain thing is that it is likely there will be a great many changes between now and the play-offs.

Club Championship

Gladesville Ryde Magic had taken ten of the points last time they met Hakoah but it was a slightly different story this time when Hakoah earned nine points from the day. As a result, Magic have slipped back to second place and Hakoah have remained at third.

Mt Druitt Town Rangers had collected twelve points from their first round matches against Southern NSW but they were forced to settle for ten points this time around. That has allowed the Rangers to claim the top spot on the table and left Southern at ninth.

Stanmore Hawks had earned five points and St George had taken eight points when the clubs clashed last time and this week the Saints bagged nine points and the Hawks ended up with six points. That has meant that St George dropped a spot to sixth and Stanmore have fallen back one place to fifth.

Camden Tigers bagged all fifteen points from their first round meeting with Northbridge but on this occasion the Tigers had to be content with a haul of thirteen points. However, that proved to be enough to see Camden move up two places to fourth while Northbridge are still twelfth.

Hills Brumbies pocketed ten points from their last encounter with Inter Lions and this week the Brumbies added nine points to their tally to remain at seventh while the Lions are still fourteenth.

Hurstville City Minotaurs earned nine points from their first round clash with Balmain East Tigers and the Minotaurs upped the ante this week when they collected thirteen points and that allowed them to stay at eight position while the Tigers have remained at eleventh.
