Through the Grades

1 month ago

We take a look at the run home to the finals through the grades and it is worth noting: 1st Grade / 2nd Grade / 1st Colts Top 8 - 4 weeks Finals 3rd Grade / 4th Grade / Colts 2 & 3 Top 6 - 3 week Finals

2nd Grade - Position: 4th

  • 8 Wins - 1 Draw - 4 Losses

2nd Grade ground out a tough win (19-15) last week to keep their destiny in their own hands this season.

After letting a lead slip and coming back to snatch a draw v Two Blues & a 1-point loss to Randwick, this painted the often complex picture of 2nd Grade.

In a strong position (4th), they meet the 7th placed Gordon in a key match-up to solidify their position in the top 4 heading into the final month.

Gordon 7th, Eastwood 8th, Souths 11th, Two Blues 5th, Easts 3rd

3rd Grade - Position: 2nd

  • 9 Wins - 2 Losses

The absolute turnaround of the year! Having won the 2018 Premiership, the following seasons haven't been great for 3rd Grade.

With a newfound identity of their own and a home for developing players this season, this group could be on the verge of something really special.

Captain Alex Ironside, scrumhalf Drew Sellers and a number of others have really made 3rd Grade Great Again & long may it continue.

4th Grade - Position: 5th

6 Wins - 5 Losses

In a tight 4th Grade through the mid-table, Norths sit 5th with a game in hand on 6th position.

As 4th Grade are only running a top 6 finals format, this week maps as a very important game for both teams as 7th placed Gordon looks to crack the 6.

1st Colts - Position: 9th

  • 4 Wins - 8 Losses

Not all is lost ahead of 1st Colts, 2 wins from a spot in the top 8. With a favourable draw, their next 3 opponents all within striking range (West Harbour*, Gordon and Eastwood), followed by winnable games against Souths and Two Blues

They've been right in these early fixtures and built some belief with a strong win over a Manly a fortnight ago.
