The Rams come into this match after recording the best win of their season. Last week Brisbane City were bullied around the ruck and out wide as the Rams put their more fancied opponents to the sword. That being said the Rams haven’t had a stand out season and while they are currently in the top four, a bye next week means this might be the last time we see them this year. They need to win this match if they are to play in the finals.
It’s all or nothing for the Spirit this weekend. They need a big win with a bonus point to have any chance of sneaking into the finals as they have the bye next weekend. They’ll be up against qualification but in their favour is that they are playing the Rams, with only one team this season, and they have the best for and against other than Canberra and Brisbane. If they can sneak into the finals, as per last year, we know anything is possible.
The Rams are officially on a winning streak; however, as they enjoyed their first win of the season last Thursday night against the equally low lying North Harbour Rays. An upset big win could even see them leap frog the Spirit on the ladder, so there’s still much to play for.
And just to keep in the RWC theme of things this match will be played at Concord Oval, which of course was the Australian ‘home’ of the 1987 RWC, and where that famous semi-final against the French was played. A great opportunity to get down to remember the past and watch the stars of tomorrow.
Michael McDougall recent run of form in the NRC has been excellent. Whilst the backline has chopped and changed around him, McDougall has been a constant at inside centre and a consistently high performer with his astute line running and solid defense. He’ll likely be up against Kyle Godwin of the Spirit who is another who’s is enjoying a purple patch of NRC form. Godwin will provde a handful for McDougall with his strength on the ball and his skills from hand and foot.
At number 8 we May well see a contest between two tough as nails absolute competitors in Angus Cottrell and Jed Holloway. It can get a little old reading it, but Jed is the heart and soul of the Rams and his physicality is a feature of their play. Cottrell has more support in the back row combination for the Spirit, but has been a class act in each of his appearances. Close to Wallaby selection not too long ago, his play for the Spirit this year has proven why.
