29/30 June Table Analysis

Let’s take a look at how the teams across the system are doing in terms of table positioning and finals positions.

NPL 1

At this stage Wolves are the only team that really can’t fall out of the finals and are a win away from knocking out all but APIA, Blacktown and SU58 from the Premiership race. A loss from SU58 would knock them out this week from Premiership hopes.

Interesting to note that APIA and Blacktown play each other this week and a loss by Blacktown would all but knock them out of Premiership contention. A loss to APIA would be fine for them still, but there aren’t a lot of rounds left to make up the points.

Hakoah are all but mathematically eliminated from the finals with Sydney FC not far off either. One would imagine that they won’t be there based on the points gained so far, but you never know with football.

With only 6 points separating 4th and 10th, the last 2 finals spots are definitely still up for grabs.

NPL 2

North Shore have taken the lead and are in pole position for the premiership however have Hills right on their tail. I wouldn’t count Spirit out just yet, with the same going for WSW and Mounties based on how many games are left.

Bankstown are a 5 point swing from not mathematical elimination, with St George and Rydalmere being a 10 and 12 point swing from elimination respectively.

Mathematically Rams can still make the finals but are big outsiders.

All the statistics point to the last spot being contested by 4 or 5 sides and will most likely go down to the final day.

NPL 3

Stanmore hold steady at the top of the table with Magic hot on their heels. Both teams have a really tough run home and their game in round 22 will prove crucial for table position come seasons end.

Raiders will also have to face both sides above them, playing GRM in the final round of the season in what will be a massive clash and could have huge implications on standings and could be the difference between having a home or away game, or a week off.

City have started to slip lower down the table with rivals BUFC right behind them whilst the surprise package of Inter Lions has worked themselves into a finals position.

The top 6 looks fairly set in stone, but it’s hard to count out Dulwich Hill, Dunbar and Hawkesbury just yet.

If we’re talking mathematically, WNSW are just about gone from finals with Rage not far behind either. Parramatta still has a slim chance but a 10 point swing will see them miss out.

Much like NPL 2, we will have a clearer picture in 2-3 weeks.

NPL 4

At this stage the whole competition is wide open as to finals positions.

CCU and Fraser look set to take the top 2 spots with the winner of the 2 coming up likely to take the premiership.

Gazy have played themselves into a finals position, but with so many rounds left and a 6 point difference between 5th and 11th, it’s way too hard to call.
