RLATG National Club Championship Round 10 Preview


The final round of the regular season sees a final jostle for position, the Vikings can still lift themselves from bottom with a win, 1st and 2nd place are still up for grabs, and 4th and 5th are still in contention.


Liguanea Dragons vs Duhaney Park Red Sharks


The 4th place Liguanea Dragons take on the Duhaney Park Red Sharks, the Sharks have substantially more to lose in this game, currently sat in first place with the GC Angels breathing down their neck.The last time these two sides met, back in round 5 of the 2018 season, a 40-12 Red Sharks victory. The Red Sharks will come out with an attack minded approach in this game, making sure they leave nothing to luck or chance by looking to put the Dragons on the back foot early on, the Red Sharks a side with more than enough attacking power to do so, currently leading the points scored rankings with 330 points scored in the last 9 games, 62 of those points coming from Andrew Simpson, the league's leader try scorer crossing 15 times this season. The Dragons will be hoping to secure 4th place ahead of the eliminators, 4th take on 6th for a spot in the finals, the Dragons hoping their attack and defence will be able to go toe to toe with the defence.


GC Angels vs Spanish Town Vikings


The Angels have already secured their final spot, this game purely a formality for the team sitting 2nd on the ladder, the Vikings still in with a hope of avoiding bottom spot if they can disrupt the Angels with a win. The Angels are a side with plenty of points in them, the Vikings will know from their last meeting back in Round 5 of the 2018 season, the Angels running up a huge 76 points on the Vikings, their defence will no doubt be tested once more. The Vikings showed in last week's fixture against the JDF Warriors that they are a side capable of scoring points, their defence once more the let down in that game, will it stand up this week against the Angels?


JDF Warriors vs Washington Boulevard Bulls


The Warriors win lose or draw have secured 3rd and will take on 5th place in the eliminators for a spot in the finals, that certainly does not mean that the Jamaican Defense Force will be holding back when they welcome the Bulls to Up Park Camp. The Warriors claimed the win in the Round 5 reverse of this fixture, keeping the Bulls tryless at a score of 30-2, the Warriors showing off why they have only conceded 160 points in the last 9 rounds, giving them an average of 18 points conceded a game, that number ramped up by two high scoring losses to the GC Angels. That 2 points scored has been the story of the Bulls' season so far, they are currently the lowest scoring side and the highest conceding, points on the field and on the table hard to come by for Washington in 2018, they still have time to turn things around and stage a finals push.
