With five rounds until finals, both the men’s and women’s division one ladders couldn’t be much tighter. Wodonga and Falcons are locked on 30 points apiece in the women’s competition, with Magpies just six points back. The Bulldogs also lead the men’s competition on 27 points, with a slender one-point lead over CR United who have come from the clubs to be in the mix for top spot, while Norths are also within striking distance on 24. Magpies must beat Wodonga in the women’s competition on Sunday to remain a realistic chance of finishing minor premiers, Falcons should be too strong for Wombats, while Norths can jump into fourth spot with victory over United. Norths and CR United’s clash is the match of the round in men’s hockey.
