U.S. Clubs set sights on Grand Final XV
- USA RL (AMNRL)
The 2012 American National Rugby League playoff series continues this weekend with the semifinals in the Atlantic Conference. The winning teams will progress to Grand Final XV.
The defending champion New York Knights are looking to make it back to back championships, but in order to do so will have to get past a fired up Bucks County Sharks side that was narrowly defeated last week.
The Sharks have been slow out of the blocks in their last couple of matches, but can match it with any side in the competition if they're on their game.
The Knights have been the epitome of consistency in the AMNRL this season, leading the conference from start to finish. With only the one blemish this year against the Pennsylvania Bulls, the Knights will head into the match as heavy favorites, as they look to secure their fourth AMNRL championship.
