Men's Super-8: Trio eye top spot

Warrington Wolves, NEM Hawks and West London Eagles could all go top of men’s Super-8 this weekend.

Wolves and Hawks meet at Powerleague Trafford on Saturday in the big North-West derby, while the same day sees Eagles travel to Sutton Bonnington to play Nottingham.

Hawks have made a great start to the season with three-wins-from-three. Wolves have also been in great form with three wins and a draw. A win for Wolves would almost certainly see them head the standings, even if West London Eagles beat Nottingham, thanks to their impressive plus 46 goal difference. However, if Eagles lose at Sutton Bonnington and Hawks beat Wolves, then Hawks will go top on goal difference.

A win for Eagles and a draw or defeat for Wolves would put the London side top. Throw-off at Powerleague Trafford is 13.30, while Nottingham and Hawks get underway at 14.30.

The final match of the weekend, also on Saturday, pitches Coventry Sharks against Olympia at Medway Park in Gillingham. Promoted Sharks have struggled on their return to Super-8, losing all their four matches so far. Olympia, meanwhile, have won two, and lost two matches. Throw-off is at 15.30 and part of a feast of handball at Medway Park which includes the first leg of Olympia women’s EHF third-round tie against Swiss side LK Zug, which throws off at 18.00.

Get down to your local match and watch the most exciting, high scoring, action packed, contact, team sport that can be played anywhere by anyone. Support your team, cheer on your heroes, share the thrills, be a fan.
