Semi Finals Time
The AFL Central and Northern England Semi Finals are upon us. At 1pm on Saturday the undefeated Leeds Minotaurs take on Birmingham which is certainly not going to be the walkover some would have predicted a month ago. Birmingham ran Leeds within 4 goals in Round 9 and if it wasn’t for some very inaccurate kicking the Bears would have won. Leeds will go into the game full of confidence having swept all before them thus far in season 2013.
In the second game last year’s Premiers Manchester take on their old rivals Sheffield. The Mosquitoes will go into the game as warm favourites having had the wood over the Thunder during the home and away season. Sheffield though have a few tricks up their sleeve and a powerful midfield combination of Nevin and Ireland and will be confident of causing an upset.
The location of the semi finals is:
Crag Lane, Off King Lane
