Cape Town - Each round of the 2009/10 English Premiership season, a panel of self-proclaimed Sport24 soothsayers have a crack at predicting the week’s results.

Compiled by Chief Writer Rob Houwing (2008/09 runner-up), with regular predictions also from Managing Editor Garrin Lambley (the defending champion), Content Producer Raymond Kilfoil, Commercial Manager David Brooke and former Bafana Bafana and AmaZulu striker George Dearnaley, you’ll seldom find us singing from the same song-sheet.

Occasionally we invite a celebrity guest tipster to have a crack at a round of matches; watch this space …

*LEADERBOARD (three points for wholly correct score-line, one for right result):


252 - Rob (10 points in last round)
244 - Ray (6)
242 - Dave (11)
238 - George (6)
219 - Garrin (8)

Verdict: Rob has opened up an eight-point lead as the English Premiership season winds to a close. Thanks to an 11-point haul last weekend, Dave is up into the bronze medal position - and threatening Ray for second spot. George is in limbo after a six-point haul while last year's winner, Garrin... well, the less said the better...
