Paul writes: “First up I am backing Downfield to beat Glenrothes in the East Region at 5-4. Both are still in with a chance of the title but to keep the pressure on Blairgowrie will need to be going for the three points. Downfield will be kicking themselves for dropping points last weekend against Scone and I suspect the players will want to put in a big performance to make up for that.
“Next I am going for Clydebank at evens to beat Largs in the West Region. This is another game that will have a major bearing on the title and one Clydebank have to win to give themselves a chance of returning to the Super League Premier as champions. The Bankies were on a good run up until last week’s loss with 10 men to Ardrossan but bounced back well to win at top-flight Rob Roy in the West of Scotland Cup on Wednesday. I am confident they can see off a Largs side who were beaten in the league last Saturday and in the cup in midweek.
“Finally, I am going for Stonehaven to beat Hermes at 13-8. Stonehaven did us a favour last week and face another difficult tie against fellow title contenders. Our man fancies Hermes to win and there is no doubt they are in better form. However, these are the sort of games the home side have been winning this season and hopefully the value lies with them.”

Owen writes: A winning treble for me last week puts me in a good position with only a few weeks left. It’s mostly league games again this week with the exception of the second leg of the Junior Cup sem-final and that could be another draw and penalties.
I’m starting my treble by taking a team who have done well for me this season – Troon at 4-6 away to Arthurlie. The home side had a good draw last week at Auchinleck but I feel Troon are focused in making a push for the title and will get all three points.
Mr Fixit won’t be happy I’ve chosen his side – I was a jinx last season – but I’m also on his beloved Clydebank at evens at home to Largs. Both clubs lost last Saturday but Largs followed that with a crushing blow by losing at promotion rivals Kilwinning in midweek and I feel a Bankies win today would see previous title favourites Largs have the toughest job of the four sides fighting for promotion. Bankies bounced back with a fine win at Rob Roy and should be ready to go.
Linlithgow at 11-10 at home to Bo’ness completes my treble Both sides are hoping to keep winning while others drop points to keep any title dream alive and I reckon it will be Linlithgow celebrating on Saturday.
