AT the end of a very mixed regular season, the play-offs have arrived and have brought with them an air of excitement for both players and fans.
Everyone realises it’s a whole new ball game. The hottest team over three weeks and five games will be champions and our first round opponents Worcester Wolves will go into the tie as firm favourites.
Paul James has led them to a record season and I have to admit across the three games we’ve played them, they have held the upper hand every time.
That is all water under the bridge now and we feel we’ve hit our stride at the right time and the momentum we have built up can help us going into the clash.
If we come out and play with a sort of controlled desperation then I have no doubt that we are in with a great shout.
We are all aware we can’t win the tie in the first leg, but we sure can lose it. That’s why it will be a cagey affair, to be decided by one or two moments of magic – and you can be sure that we will be doing our best to conjure up what is required.
Why not come down to the Northgate on Sunday and shout us on?
