so this game has a bit to play for in it. For the Eagles, they need to beat the Rays with a bonus point and rely on the Rising defeating the Stars without a bonus point to qualify for the finals. Alternatively if the Stars defeat the Rising, then all the Eagles need to do is defeat the Rays to get in. Given the timing of the encounter, a day before the Stars travel to Frankston to battle the Rising, the Eagles will be out to score a win, ideally by three or more tries to secure a bonus point.
The Rays have an outside chance of making the finals too however it is Siberia-like levels of outside. For them to make it they will need to score a bonus point win over the Eagles. Oh and with a margin of at least 44 points. Oh and then hope the Stars beat the Rising and deny them any sort of losing bonus point.
Big Tommy Staniforth has been one of the form forwards of the competition in the last month with his damaging runs a feature as well as his physicality at the breakdown. His emergence in this competition shows great promise for Australia’s locking future. Ryan Melrose, of the Rays, doesn’t have the profile of Staniforth but has a been a real work-horse for the Rays since grabbing a starting spot in the latter part of the season. The Rays like to run the ball from anywhere and at anytime, and the no-nonsense Melrose does the hard work to ensure the risky plays come off.
Jarome McKenzie was one of the standouts of the competition for the Greater Sydney Rams last year, scorching the fields across Australia and grabbing the attention of fans of the new competition. A bad injury put the brakes on his follow up year, but after a switch to the NSW Country Eagles and finally back to regaining his full confidence, his try scoring feats have returned. When the Rays lost the electric Alex Northam to an overseas contract, supporters were resigned coping without a key attacking weapon. Since then Josh Porch has jumped at the opportunity of the late call up and showcased his own electric speed and provided the Rams with just another strong finisher out wide.
