RLATG National Club Championship Round 4 Preview


Spanish Town Vikings vs JDF Warriors

The Vikings find themselves at the bottom of the ladder after last week's big loss to the Duhaney Park Red Sharks, they will certainly be looking to bounce back and reboot their season after a tough few weeks in the RLATG National Club Championship. The Vikings have struggled with scoring this season and currently hold the least amount of tries in the competition on 8, they will need to improve on this figure to beat a resurgent Warriors side.

The Warriors have certainly started to look like 2018's surprise package, many had their eye on JDF but certainly didn't expect them to pull off a draw with the Red Sharks and then follow it up by hammering the Dragons 26-8 last week, the Vikings will  have to be alert to the threat that Carr, Dyer and Kennedy bring to the table and shut them down quickly.

Liguanea Dragons vs Washington Boulevard Bulls

The Dragons and the Bulls have an opportunity to put some distance between each other in week 4, both sitting on 3 points after 1 win in their last 3 games, both on the receiving ends of defeat last week. The Dragons will no doubt be aware of the threat that inform Bull, Orlando Messado posses. The Washington big man scoring 60% of all the Bulls tries so far this season putting him at the top of the try scoring charts, his input will no doubt be valuable.

The Dragons too have their own strike weapon in the form of Adrian Hall, 4 tries and 2 conversions put his in the RLATG NCC top 5 point scorers, the Bulls will no doubt have done their homework on the Dragons and identified Hall as one of the linchpins of the squad. 

Duhaney Park Red Sharks vs GC Angels

There's two certainties in life, death and the Red Sharks coming into a game as the out and out favourites, for obvious reasons too, Roy Calvert's men have been in their usual sensational form from the word go in 2018, many of them featuring in the RLATG D2 as a warm up for the National Club Championship. The Sharks have the highest number of individual try scorers in the competition so far with 12, averaging 3 new scorers a week highlighting their skillset across the board.

The GC Angels are also in good form after picking 2 wins from the opening 3 games putting them 2nd on the ladder and just a point behind the Red Sharks. Antonio Baker, Shemar Cueray and Keta Bryan all asserting themselves as prominent threats as the Angels leading points scorers, the Red Sharks will certainly have to get numbers around the large frames of Baker and Bryan close to the line to prevent them from adding to their totals.
