GRANT Jamieson, were he a punter, would probably bet against the side he leads - Football Club - beating Valley in the San Miguel League title-decider this Saturday at Happy Valley. For all his optimism, Jamieson is fully aware of the enormity of the task awaiting his side as they meet Valley in the crunch game of the season. The Club skipper's lack of self-confidence in his team derives not so much from the awesome recent form of Valley, but rather from the shocking fact that Club have not had a sustained build-up to Saturday's clash. Over the past 12 weeks, Club have played only two competitive games - against Valley on December 10 and Police on January 14. If Monday night's game against their second stringers, the Dragons, is taken into account then Club have played just three games in the past three months. Club's hand-to-mouth existence is an indictment on the First Division league system this season. 'At this stage we will be lucky to keep Valley to within 50 points,' was Jamieson's pessimistic view last week, as he pondered the unfairness of a fixture list which has apparently targeted Club as victim. 'It is frustrating the way things have turned out. I hope it is just a coincidence, but it looks as if we have become the victim of a planned campaign,' said Jamieson. His frustrations are justified considering that at the start of the season, Club rolled all opposition aside, including Valley in the grading tournament and in the first round of the League, before the troubles started. Club had a three-week break from rugby before they met Valley in the second round - not surprisingly they lost 24-15. 'This time we would have a month-long break. We have had more games conceded to us than any other team in the League,' Jamieson pointed out. Monday's game against the Dragons comes too late 'to iron out the problems' according to Jamieson. 'I don't like to admit it, but it seems that we have run out of time. We have had a lot of training runs, but it is hard to keep the guys motivated without any reasonable competition.' Club had looked forward to last Thursday's game against Police - rescheduled from December. But Police cried off, saying they had incurred too many injuries while their players were on duty for the development squads against St Andrew's Old Boys from Argentina. Undoubtedly, Valley will be the fitter team on Saturday. Club, meanwhile, will have to hope that pride and the prejudice they hold against Valley will be enough to fuel them for 80 minutes of hard rugby.
