Well, here we are just past the mid-point of the season with ten more rounds (plus a few catch up games) to be played. I do wonder how many of the team that currently occupy places in the top five of their respective competitions will still be there when the play-offs start. History indicates that there will be many changes between now and then. Let?s wait and see.

Sutherland Sharks moved up to the top of the table when they were 4-1 winners over eleventh placed Wollongong FC while Marconi Stallions slipped back to second when they were surprisingly held to a scoreless draw by last placed Bankstown City.
