I’ve had a good look at all the Masters grade teams and done some calculations based on what information I could get from google. Here’s how I see the races shaping up:
– M40: big win for Nelson, with three teams (Scottish, Pap Toc, Hawks) scrapping for silver and too tight to call – any order within those three chasers seems possible to me.
– O50: Otago’s new club (are they a composite of three clubs and therefore ineligible?) to just edge out Nelson, with Wellington Harriers only just behind.
– O60: Scottish to have a reasonable margin at the front. Silver to New Brighton and Nelson chasing for third.
– MW: Strong win for Scottish. Hawks second, Port Hills as far back again in third.
I’ll have a go at putting the SM/SW into my spreadsheet later too.
