Premier League Predictions

Recommended Posts

I’m going to go for

1 Hunslet

2 Siddal

3 West Hull

4 Mayfield 

5 Thatto Heath

6 Wath Brow

7 Underbank

8 Kells 

9 Myton

10 Egremont

11 St Pats

12 Normanton

 

i think Hunslet could claim the top spot going on previous results, ST Pats have flirted with relegation in the last few seasons and this could be the time they fall out the trap door

Sorry Normy coming up via the playoffs is always going to be tough unless you have picked up a couple of players, if not then it might be a short stay in the premier division 

i think West’s will fare better this term and Mayfield will certainly challenge 

 

this will be the first time we have no Leigh side in the premier

I agree with your top 6, although maybe some slight ordering adjustments, like I think Thatto may be a little higher, and would obviously love to see Hunslet finish top. 

Can't wait for the start of the season - will be great going to some of these teams this year and we're very much looking forward to hosting them. 

I think for overall winners Mayfield and Siddal will pose the biggest threat to us. 

My prediction:

1 Siddal

2 Hunslet CP

3 Mayfield

4 Thatto Heath

5 West Hull

6 Wath Brow

7 Kells

8 Underbank

9 Egremont

10 Myton

11 St Pats

12 Normanton

Siddal are a great club and I don't see them struggling... however I think the loss of Garrod, Sanderson etc. will have a big impact. Look at Miners last year after O'Brien left?

1. Thatto

2. Mayfield

3. Wath Brow

4. West Hull

5. Hunslet 

6. Siddal

7. Kells

8. Underbank

9. Myton

10. Egremont

11. St Pats

12. Normanton

Just looking at peoples prediction here it feels like there are at least 9 teams realistically pushing for play-offs and not just to make up the numbers, but actually to make it to the final.

Looks like a very strong league, which is great for the NCL. Nobody wants to see teams getting annihilated at any level but in the Premier division there's even more spotlight, so this bodes well IMO.

Been like that for a number of years.

I disagree - I think the play offs have been predictable over the past few seasons and this is evident when you look at the results in the weekly rounds. Usually at least 2 blow out (20+ winning margin) score lines every week. 

Only time will tell how it pans out this year but I agree with the above table predictions that show around 9 clubs could potentially beat each and therefore be competitive in the play offs.

I disagree with showing Egremont in the bottom 3, They proved after getting lads back from injury that they are a very good team and nearly sneaked into the playoffs at the end of the season.

Cumbria is always a hard place for teams to come and take 2 points away, would love to see all 3 teams in the playoffs this year
