This week’s derby predictions

Congratulations to Strand RFC for winning the big derby last week after trailing 22-3 at one stage. After a slow start to the season, things are really taking shape for them.

Macassar remains unbeaten, although it could only manage a draw against Goodwood.

This week’s fixtures are crucial for the shape of the respective leagues, with all local clubs fighting hard for a top-six finish.

  • Strand United vs Blue Jets (Abattoir)

United should get over last week’s result and take advantage of the promoted Blue Jets. The visitors got a win over a poor Manenberg Rangers last week and might feel they could grind out another win. United on the other hand will have to go for the bonus-point win.

Prediction: United to win by 12 or more.

  • St George’s vs NNK (Parow)

The Lulus lost against a good Durbell last week, but will definitely be more competitive this week. NNK are inconsistent and St George’s should pounce on this. A Lulus side firing on all cylinders will be worthy of four log points.

Prediction: St George’s to win by four or less.

  • All Saints vs Franschhoek (Helderzicht)

The boys from Somerset West got a real taste of Super League B against Kraaifontein last week and now face a Franschhoek side that convincingly beat both Hamlets and Collegians in recent weeks. The visitors are an extremely good side and will target All Saints for maximum points.

P rediction: All Saints to lose by eight or more.

  • Helderberg vs Paarl (Charles Morkel)

Berge got a great victory over Primroses last week and are performing more consistently than I expected. With their tails up and homeground advantage, this could be an opportunity for Berge to take maximum points against a poor Paarl side.

Prediction: Helderberg to win by 10 or more.

  • Sir Lowrians vs Young Stars (Sir Lowry’s Pass)

Both these side are relegation candidates even though it’s still early in the season and that makes it even more crucial to pick up points in this match. The quality of The Navy Train’s backs may be the difference, though. Sir Lowrians needs to pick up points and get their first win in nearly two years.

Prediction: Sir Lowrians to win by 10 or more.

  • Strand Pioneers vs Blue Stars (Abattoir)

Pines are yet to record a victory this season and now face promotion contenders Blue Stars, to make matters worse. The visitors will be happy with nothing less than five points and will surely get it.

Prediction: Pioneers to lose by 20 or more.
