I watched York vs Oldham on the 'Our League' app.
Oldham looked dangerous and York got out of jail.
So I am thinking Oldham could be a worry in the play-offs.


I was wondering whether York and Workington may have suffered this weekend because they knocked seven bells out of each other last weekend?

Oldham looked quite poor when we played them at the Keepmoat but there very good points difference suggests they're perhaps better than their league position.

If you're right and Oldham have got their act together now, it may be better for us if Hunslet win their last two games and Oldham lose against Bradford so Hunslet keep them out of the play-offs.

Pos................ P..W..D..L... F... A... Diff... Pts
1 York ............25 23 0 2 1098 294 804 46
2 Bradford...... 25 22 0 3 1145 275 870 44
3 Doncaster.....25 18 0 7 912 463 449 36
4 Workington...25 17 0 8 801 473 328 34
5 Whitehaven...25 16 0 9 688 497 191 32
6 Oldham.........25 15 0 10 856 327 529 30
7 Hunslet........25 15 0 10 731 582 149 30
8 Newcastle.....25 13 0 12 743 514 229 26



Next weekend’s games:
York v Whitehaven
Bradford v Hemel
Dons v Workington
London v Oldham
Coventry v Hunslet
Keighley v W Wales

Unless York slip up at home to Whitehaven they’re going up as Champions. Whitehaven struggled to beat Coventry at home 24-20 this weekend.
The Dons will stay in third place unless we lose to Workington by 61 points or more.

If Whitehaven lose at York, Oldham will take 5th place providing they win at London as they have the best points difference.

Hunslet could make 5th spot if they beat Coventry but would need Oldham to lose at London and for York to beat Whitehaven by quite a few; it looks like Hunslet are out of it.

The final standings will probably be:
1) York
2) Bradford
3) Dons
4) Workington
5) Oldham
6) Whitehaven
7) Hunslet

Play Offs:

Bradford will be at home to Oldham in the play-offs. Bradford won 24-16 at Oldham today. A Bradford win might not be a certainty.
The Dons will be at home to Workington in the play-offs.

With a bit of luck, we’ll be at home to Oldham in the final! Otherwise, after a play-off win against Workington, we’ll be at Bradford in the final.
We need to win next weekend to build our confidence for the play-off game!

Not sure Bradford won at York.

Not everyone is prefect ...

I think I need a proofreader, you know!

I started doing these tables and forecasts before Round 20 was played. The Dons were in 6th place at the time. That all seems a long time ago now.

I did fancy our chances of finishing third after round 19 but I thought next week's game would be the decider.

On reflection, our win at Whitehaven and Workington's loss against Newcastle were the key results that have put us in a good position. I suppose our home win against Newcastle was pivotal as well, especially considering how they derailed Workington.

With Hull having their last game at Wigan on the weekend of Sept 29/30th, is anyone in a position to say who from the Hull squad is available to us if we manage to beat Worky in the SF. I know Litten, Logan, Miloudi and Harris must be. I'm not sure who else has played the number of requisite games.

With Hull being away in that last match, Hull may feel more inclined to let their lads play in the 'big match' for us, rather than send them to Lenagan Land.

Don't forget Jack Sanderson too Alan. Cameron Scott is also qualified and I believe Jordan Lane is qualified too. Not sure about Lewis Bienek as he only played for us twice but there have been dispensation rules before for players who have been injured.

We can only have five in total in the squad. I'd go for Miloudi, Litten (both vital), Lane, Logan, and Sanderson.

I know it's a bit harsh on the Donny lads that may miss out but we've got to put out the best 17 available players.

Lewis Bienik has 4 appearances for the Dons but would have needed 5 to qualify having played for Hull after the qualifying cut-off point.
