With just two full rounds of matches, plus the four divisional finals (best of luck to Leitrim in the Division Four decider, by the way), left to play in this year’s National Football League, things are set to come to a head shortly in the prediction mini-league.
Long-time leader in this particular race, Conor C, still heads the field after Round 5. His lead at the top has, though, been pared back from 58 to 30 points, with Sean Cunney now leading the chasing pack in second spot. Five points further back, Johnny Jetson slips to third but is still very much in the hunt for honours. Most likely the overall winner will be one of this trio.
I slipped a bit myself this time round, sliding to 16th overall so I’ve work to do if I’m to make it onto the leaderboard. Speaking of which, here’s the list of the top ten placings after Round 5.
