Key Match-Up - Warringah v Randwick

Both teams with everything to play for.

Warringah were squeezed from the top 4 with a loss to two blues last round. A win here is a must to keep that alive in the coming weeks. Ben Woollett is a big loss to the rats, having played his last game before heading to the UK

Randwick clings onto 8th, 1-point ahead of Hunter, need to find some form ahead of a good run home they need to take their opportunities.

Souths v Sydney University

The top 4 teams all managed bonus points wins in the week last week & Sydney University took it one step further with 40 points over a try-less Easts.

Souths will upset some teams in the final rounds, but it won't be Uni.

Eastern Suburbs v Eastwood

Easts are quickly losing control of their finals chances, 5 points from 8th position. A lot has been said about the impending return of Super Rugby Players to the tri-colours but will it all be too late? They weren't able to fire a shot against a clinical University and they face another top 4 team here.

Eastwood have been bolstered by a number of faces returning from Super Rugby. Lachie Albert (Brumbies) is an interesting inclusion making up for the loss of Matt Gonzales.

West Harbour v Manly

There is certainly some improvement from West Harbour & expect this to be closer than their ladder position would suggest.

Manly by 6

Hunter v Two Blues

Another two teams with a lot to play for.

Two Blues have made it 3 in row and could push for the top 4 in the coming weeks should other results help them out.

Hunter showed some promised but have fallen outside the top 8 and will need to find wins against teams above them to live up to the early season hype.
