Closest season yet

With just two rounds of Computer Man round robin cricket remaining no team is guaranteed of a final top four spot.

Turangi currently sit at the top of the table, and even being four points clear of the Muri Creeps doesnt guarantee them a spot, a win from either of their two remaining games should however secure them a position.

The Creeps and Red Backs are contesting strongly however both teams will need to secure at least a win in their remaining matches, even then that would not guarantee them a finals placing. The most interesting teams positioning on the table is that of third placed Titans with four matches left to play, it isnt inconceivable to see the second season new comers making their debut in the top four.

In fact, together with Turangi, the Titans have statistically looked like the in-form team.

Sorry Titans fans, but the early celebrations are short lived when you consider the Titans still have a lot of hard work to do to secure at least two wins from their remaining four matches, three of which are against the Red Backs, Creeps and Turangi.

Avatiu-Nikao are still in with a sniff, sitting 5th on the table, however one would imagine they need to win both of their remaining matches convincingly.

And where do the traditional top sides Tupapa Panthers and late chargers Matavera fit into the top four scenario 6th and 8th respectively.

This makes their game plan, and the Takuvaine TKV who statistically still have a chance, very simple win well and sit back with fingers crossed in the hope that other match results go their way. Get behind your village this Saturday. Draws can be viewed at and in tomorrows Cook Islands News.
