Northern Rovers in big trouble it seems! Melville result papering over the cracks did anyone see the game?

I disagree, they were dominating Auckland City and City were lucky to not concede. Difference between the teams was where Northern Rovers would squander a chance, City would score it, case and point the first goal where City scored from basically their first shot on goal. Tade was calm, took a fake shot to beat the diving block and smashed it in, whereas Northern had several chances to only score once.

Also Melville drew today with Hamilton, so they’re hardly average. From watching their game on Saturday and seeing their results, West Coast Rangers are in much more trouble. They’re more or less the Waitakere side who only avoided relegation due to the league being suspended last year

big ACFC fan but yeah, Rovers were dominant first half. Fell apart later as experience ended up counting, but for a large period it was anyone's game

That WS were a dark horse to watch out for. I didn't see anyone else had them on a list of National League contenders.

So I caught Rangers vs Birko and Springs vs North Shore

Rangers are definitely going to struggle. There's just no stand-out players. Birko look decent, surprised about the results against them so far. Do I remember Probert from Springs a while ago? Good player.

Springs look good. They look wiser than they were in the past. I think Drake in goal adds a relaxing component to their defence as well.

North Shore are still your typical Malcolm team.

Will probably go to City vs Hamilton this weekend, and then Springs. Or maybe I should get a life!

What's the driver behind the week-by-week fixtures? Is it grounds, council and cricket?

From what I’ve heard Auckland Council wanted a four week window between summer and winter sports to help the grounds to recover.

That being said, I’m fairly sure the entire draw has been done for several weeks, and was available for the teams, but just hasn’t been officially released and is probably subject to some changes. I’ll try get a hold of it if I can.

You can see the full draw here.

Though beware they are subject to change – as recently as Sunday every match this weekend was listed as 3pm Saturday, but some have changed and some have had the venues reversed.

 Don't Rangers have ex Phoenix player for a few games Jason Hicks?? Surely he would stand out....

Not enough for me to think "this guy is a class above" and google him.

Was he playing? If I had to take a punt potentially one of their CBs?

Would have been in midfield, No 10. Was the standout on Friday.

 Yes he would have been in the middle of the park, very short and all left footed.

Is there anywhere I can watch the games - short of going to them live? I try to make most ACFC games, but it can be challenging some weekends.
