Edinburgh vs Berwick SGB Championship 14th September, 2018, 7.30pm

Recommended Posts

Teams as per Official Edinburgh website:-

STAGGS BAR MONARCHS: Ricky Wells, Victor Palovaara, Josh Pickering, Richie Worrall, Erik Riss (captain), William Lawson, Gino Manzares (Guest).

BERWICK KLS BANDITS: Aaron Summers, David Howe (if fit), Jye Etheridge, Kevin Doolan (capt.), Nikolai Busk Jakobsen, Dany Gappmaier, Theo Pijper.

Arithmetically if other upcoming fixtures were to cause either Worky or Lakeside to slip up, then either Monarchs or Bandits could sneak into the Play-Offs.

However there is about much chance of this happening as me winning the Lottery:o

If David Howe does not make it, then Etheridge & the Bandits reserves can cover his absence. 

With Nicol, Garcia & Stewart already booked as guests for Glasgow & Peterborough on Friday,  Monarchs reserve guest choice was very limited (wonder if Carl Wilkinson was unavailable?).

Some Bandits pundits seem confident that they can post their first 2018 League away win  at the Dale, and certainly Pijper at reserve gives them some optimism.

It would be nice to see Berwick get some reward for there season and what better than a win at the 'dump. Would also be nice to see former Tigers Aaron, David (if fit), Kevin and Theo score some good points. sadly don't think they'll get the win but a draw might not be out of the question.

Easy home win 54 36 hope Theo has learnt from the last meeting about cut backs on the inside on the final bend.If David is not fit its basically a 5 man team Dany is guff up there.

David Howe is fit to ride would love to see us get a result but Edinburgh very strong at home. Safe meeting to both sets of riders.

Gonna be hard for us, more so since Glasgow have had a good week which means this is a MUST win for Edinburgh too! Would have been nice to still have NBJ at reserve alongside Theo as we all know Dany is pure mince round Armadale (and that’s being polite :lol:)  

Reckon we may start well but will have our usual collapse... 

51-39 to Edinburgh

The BBC forecast suggests light showers so probably dry and sunny

The BBC suggesting light showers can mean anything from dry and sunny to a torrential downpour.

Edinburgh could do with rain Off's at other meetings,would question running outstanding fixtures after cut -off if they don't extend date again.All it does is clog up fixtures for the successful clubs.This happens most seasons as the most successful Clubs that season are usually still in most Competitions.

No Edinburgh fan provided any weather updates in 4 hours since Bandit59 asked?! Poor form as any other teams fans are quick to let away travelling fans know, like when I asked Pboro fans on Sunday. We just want to know what the micro climate is like in Armadale.

If you look at Traffic Scotland,Live cameras it's chucking it down at M8 Whitburn,but this won't be called off till start time for obvious reasons.(it might have blown over by then as it's fairly windy up this way)
