A bit of both. I'm thinking you're cemented into second spot and your coach might experiment a little.

Yeah i  agree about Fev but a couple more just seem strange predictions.

You can't win on here so I'll just stick with what I think rather than follow the herd.

1. Everyone makes the same predictions - people moan about it

2. Someone makes some different predictions - people moan about it

My only other 'odd' prediction would be the York one: My thought process is that Newcastle are possibly due a win - and why not against a side who shipped a 100 points a couple of weeks ago? I really do think that one could be closer than some think.

I certainly wasn't moaning just giving an opinion on your opinion, i thought that's what this forum was about lol.

York haven't been convincing against anyone for quite some time now, unfortunately, so I reckon that's not a bad shout.

Not you, just a comment on the general vibe you get on here sometimes.

Discuss this weekend's non-televised Betfred Championship games here.

FRIDAY 2nd SEPTEMBER

SATURDAY 3rd SEPTEMBER
Newcastle Thunder v York City Knights KO 19:00

Barrow Raiders v Dewsbury Rams KO 15:00 
Batley Bulldogs v Bradford Bulls KO 15:00
London Broncos v Leigh Centurions KO 15:00

One for Dave W as I understand where he is coming from and the last thing I would like to do would be to undermine a fellow contributor to the forum. I’m in Lanzarote, so can’t do a coupon anyway : If Daves predictions are spot on , fair play 👌

Fev by 16

York by 14

Barrow by 30

Batley by 8

Leigh by 44

Haven by 10

York Batley and Fev haven't been convincing but you'd expect them to win. Not guaranteed though in any game. 

Leigh will beat London you'd assume. 

Touch wood saying this but Barrow have been on great form since the fax game at home so you'd expect them to beat Dewsbury.

Town v Haven even nothing at stake will be a dog fight but I think Haven will edge it.

Eagles 18 Fev 10 at half time. This has been the story of Eagles' season so far, good starts and then fading. I expect Fev to still win by 10-20.

"I am the avenging angel; I come with wings unfurled, I come with claws extended from halfway round the world. I am the God Almighty, I am the howling wind. I care not for your family; I care not for your kin. I come in search of terror, though terror is my own; I come in search of vengeance for crimes and crimes unknown. I care not for your children, I care not for your wives, I care not for your country, I care not for your lives." - (c) Jim Boyes - "The Avenging Angel"

Yeah Eagles did the same to Fax in the first half, they are really quick around the ruck and attack very different to what most teams are using. I expect Fev with come to terms with it late on and probably end up running away with it as Sheffield's defense tends to be a bit frail.
