No matter where you look, there’s plenty of intrigue as we head into Men’s Premier League Round 15. The rematch of the 2023 Challenge Cup Final catches the eye, and all five games are sure to be fascinating affairs.
At Kitchener Park, we’ll have a meeting between top three sides. Third placed Pittwater won big on the weekend, but so did second placed Narrabeen – will Narrabeen get revenge for defeat at the hands of Pittwater in last month’s Men’s Challenge Cup Final?
League leaders CC Strikers have scored nine times in their last two games and their next opponents Beacon Hill are coming off a thrilling 3-3 draw against Brookvale. Everything points to an exciting clash at Beacon Hill Reserve, the hosts will be looking to move up from sixth place with a victory.
Mosman host St Augustine’s at Middle Head Oval, with both teams trying to turn things around from defeat in Round 14. Three points for Mosman will ensure another week in the top four, while eighth placed Saints are looking for a result to keep them away from the bottom two.
Fifth placed Wakehurst are fresh off the bye weekend and could move into the top four with victory if other results go their way. They host Manly Vale at Lionel Watts Oval, with ninth placed Vale looking to bounce back from two consecutive defeats.
Harbord enjoyed their first win of 2023 when they defeated Saints on the weekend. They’ll be looking to make it two in a row when they host BTH Raiders at Harbord Park – victory for tenth placed Harbord and defeat for Manly Vale could see Harbord leapfrog Vale on the ladder.
