Anyway, back to the game and its significance. In the Prem conferences the top 2 teams get into the playoffs and the bottom team is relegated to Division 1.

Tamworth are guaranteed a playoff spot win or lose, you may think that this will mean they relax for this one and wait for the big playoff game. Well Tamworth suffered their only loss of the past 3 seasons to Manchester earlier this season. To add insult to injury, the loss was a shutout victory for the Titans at the Phoenix’s home ground!

Simply put, Tamworth will be out for revenge.

Manchester however are in a bit of a do or die position as if they win this they are Prem North Champions for the first time in their history. And if they lose and Merseyside win, then the Titans will be out of the playoffs!

Game 2

There is a 3-way tie at the bottom of the table with Leicester, Sheffield and Edinburgh all on 2-7 records.

Game 2 sees Edinburgh host Leicester. When these 2 teams played back in Week 10 it was Leicester who got the all important W in a shutout 10-0 game.

If Leicester win this then Edinburgh will be relegated.

If Edinburgh win and Sheffield win, then Leicester will be relegated.

So its looking unlikely that Leicester are being relegated but with Edinburgh playing directly for their survival and with home field advantage you can expect them to be putting up a hell of a fight.

Game 3

The third and final game of the Prem North is between bottom placed Sheffield Giants and third place Merseyside Nighthawks.

When these 2 met back in Week 10 it was the Nighthawks who got the home W in a 20-0 game.

Merseyside are in for a shot at the playoffs, if they win this game and the Mancheser Titans lose then Merseyside will be through on a painful +4 point head to head differential.

Sheffield are playing for survival, quite simply, if they lose this they are playing Div 1 football next season.

My Predictions

I think that the winners on the day will be: Tamworth, Merseyside and Edinburgh. Meaning that Tamworth and Merseyside will progress to the playoff and Sheffield will sadly be relegated.
