    DIV 1 winners will likely come from Newcastle, Illawarra or Sydney.

    DIV 2 is quite open. I think all of the teams would rate themselves a genuine chance but I would think going off last few years, Central Coast or Southern Highlands to clinch promotion.

    DIV 3 who knows. Bathurst is the standout, they should be in a higher division, embarressing for their competition to be represented in this division. Cessnock is basically a 4th Newcastle side. Reckon Bathurst, New England or Crookwell for the winner. Crookwell often ahs plenty of ACT based players in it.

    Gees he's busy at the moment, he played for Gold Coast last weekend in the Qld champs and will play for Labrador in the BHL this weekend. That's a lot of games in a short period.

    I believe el capitan Livermore got sent off late too.. wonder if this affected the outcome?

    I think from what I saw Friday, the best 2 teams made the GF.. without a doubt.
