SC Weather Report & Heat Maps – Round 25

My SC year update:

After being ranked 2284 after Round 2 (my best start to a year ever), I’ve been hovering anywhere between around 2-7000 ever since, which has been pretty frustrating! This was until I traded out Ponga and Aitken, for Tommy Turbo and Holmes in Round 23, and I’ve been flying home with a wet sail since! Was ranked 4500 after Round 21, now I’m 1491, and actually have a very small sniff of a keyring, so fingers crossed this week.


Heat maps

The Panthers left wing tends to concede most of their tries, and the Storm’s right edge scores a large portion of their tries in this area also.


The Titans attack scores many of their tries through the middle, and the Cowboys defence concedes many of their tries through the middle – maybe some good news for Ryan James owners not sure whether to play him or not this week.


The Eels left wing tends to concede a large portion of their tries, and this lines up with the Roosters right wing scoring many tries (ie: there would be many Ferguson tries for the Roosters over this season marked here).


The Broncos score many of their tries through the middle, and the Sea Eagles concede a considerable portion of their tries in the same area.


Weather notes: N/A


Note: All times are local.


FridayShowers have been present in Auckland this afternoon, however these are expected to generally clear over the next few hours in time for kickoff. Fine weather is the most likely outcome, with light winds, a moist airmass, and previous rainfall all combining to bring a high dew rating.

FridaySome isolated showers have also been present in Melbourne this afternoon, and while they are expected to ease somewhat, they will continue into this evening. One or two light and brief showers are expected in the area during the match, however the most likely scenario is for these to miss AAMI Park. While there will be a fairly moist airmass present, a moderate breeze will place a limit on the amount of dew able to form.
