Hywel's Div 1 North Preview and Predictions Saturday 11th March.

Things are hotting up in the title and relegation positions, will there be any surprises in this weeks' results?

The Cofis put the 'cat among the pigeons' with their great home victory over leaders Nant last Saturday. This has put a different slant on the title race whilst at the other end of the table Rhuthun's victory at Bethesda has opened up the relegation battle for the last lap of the league campaign. All this makes for an exciting climax to our season with matches/results from now on having a much greater significance and thus great excitement and entertainment.

We start with Bala (4th) who are enjoying an excellent run welcoming Mold (8th) to Mae Gwyniad. Whilst the visitors were 17-13 winners last October they have lost their last four outings and on form the home side should bag the points.

Caernarfon (3rd) fresh from their great home victory over leaders Nant travel to Meifod to take on COBRA. The home side battled hard in their defeat at Llandudno last week and the Cofis who won 53-5 earlier in the season will not have it their own way. It could be a testing encounter with the home side battling for every point to avoid the relegation drop but in form Cofis are favourites.

An old fashioned 'feisty' derby in prospect at Brookfield Road when Colwyn Bay (7th) host old rivals Llandudno (6th).There are only three points separating the sides in the league table and this could be a close affair. Bay had a good away win at Mold last week and are slowly easing themselves out of the relegation zone. Tudno won 22-3 earlier in the season at Maesdu Road but it could be Bay's turn to take the points.

League leaders Nant will not be holding anything back when they welcome Bethesda (10th) to Pant Carw. They will be keen to get back to winning ways following their defeat at Caernarfon last time out. Visitors Pesda who have lost their last three outings could be hard pressed to stop the leaders who won 57-0 at Cae Dafydd in October.

Rhuthun (9th) on a high following their last week's win at Pesda entertain current champions Pwllheli who won 71-3 at Bodegroes earlier in the season. Rhuthun are still flirting with the relegation zone and will make it difficult for the champions but the form book should prevail here with Pwllheli taking the points.

There are a couple of matches on Thursday evening ko 7-30 when Bro (5th) host bottom club Abergele and Nant entertain Rhuthun - I go for home victories here.
