Its make-or-break weekend as four Premiership teams enter postseason on Sunday vying for a coveted place in Britbowl XXXV.
Tamworth Phoenix travel south to face the London Warriors while Manchester Titans host the Bristol Aztecs in the day’s livestreamed game.
A Warriors spokesman said: “Our aim is to be at the New River Stadium on September 3, but nothing is given. The players and staff are working hard to make it a reality.
“Tamworth are a solid football team, they overcame an early loss to finish strong. They always play us hard and we’ve always had to perform at the highest level against them.”
Meanwhile Jason Scott’s Phoenix are approaching the game with “determination and focus”.
“We hope our preparation will put us in a position to succeed on the field. The Warriors are a team that have some good players and coaches. We anticipate that they will have prepared really well,” said Tamworth’s head coach.
Manchester Titans’ coach Jonathan Homer pointed to the consistency in approach that his team have applied over the past two years as a source of strength.
“Our way of working has served us well. Everyone on the team understands what is expected in terms of tagging and watching film, creating, and studying gameplans and then putting these into our practice plans,” he said.
However he was keen to cast his team in the role of underdogs despite home field advantage over the Bristol Aztecs.
“Everyone knows that the South is stronger than the North so we’re just happy to be taking part. The Aztecs are a talented team in terms of both athletes and scheme.”
