But he says there’s no room for com­pla­cency at this time of the sea­son.

“We want to be first or at worst sec­ond so we get a home quar­ter-fi­nal,” he says.

Jack­son says he is par­tic­u­larly im­pressed with try-scor­ing wing Tony Wood, who has dot­ted down in many of Gram­mar Carl­ton’s games this sea­son, in­clud­ing the match against Univer­sity.

“He’s a young guy who suf­fered from in­jury and ill-health last year,” he says.

“He’s hav­ing an out­stand­ing sea­son and he comes from Wai­heke, so he’s pretty com­mit­ted,” Jack­son says.

Mean­while Te Pa­papa-Mt Welling­ton’s chances of mak­ing the top eight took a hit af­ter they were up­set 36-29 by Otahuhu at Ham­lin Park.

And Eden-Roskill were out­classed by Teach­ers East­ern 29-18 at Grib­ble­hirst Park.

This Satur­day Gram­mar Carl­ton face Sub­urbs at Avon­dale Race­course while EdenRoskill visit Univer­sity at Colin Maiden Park.

In other ac­tion Te Pa­papa-Mt Welling­ton clash with Pa­p­a­toe­toe at Kingswood Re­serve and Pon­sonby host East Ta­maki at West­ern Springs.

All matches start at 2.45pm.
