Edinburgh Predators vs EN Knights
The battle of the Burgh! Two teams struggling to pick up the scraps from the Borders Big 3 (™ Dbl Coverage). The Napier Knights (how do Napier knight differ from regular knights?) won last year and we’re going with that again this year.
Dbl Coverage Predicts: EN Knights to win by 14
UWS Pyros vs Stirling Clansmen
Stirling get to take out their frustrations from last week loss on the bottom feeders of the Border conference. Not much hope here for UWS and the only way they could keep the score under 40 is by not turning up.
Dbl Coverage Predicts: Stirling by 50
Newcastle Raiders vs Durham Saints
Sitting pretty at the top of the Borders conference, Newcastle are looking good for another run into the Championship playoffs. Durham are another of those teams that just make up numbers and can expect to be thumped this week.
Dbl Coverage Predicts: Newcastle by20
Teesside Cougars vs Northumbria Mustangs
Northumbria are in pole position to grab the last of the 4 playoffs spots in the Border conference and will be looking to maintain their run. Teeside are struggling again this year, leaking points faster than a companies stock rating.
Dbl Coverage Predicts: Northumbria to win by 10
UH Sharks vs Hallam Warriors
The first real challenge for the Warriors this season, but I don’t expect them to struggle much. Worth pointing out that they don’t just run double wing. Hull have been on a good run of form, but I don’t think they will have the strength to compete in this game.
Dbl Coverage Predicts: Warriors by 30
Leeds Carnegie vs Bradford Bears
Yet another battle between teams aiming for the final playoff spot in a tough conference. Both teams need the win to keep pace with a surprising Bangor squad and the soon to lose Sharks.
Dbl Coverage Predicts: Leeds by 7
