Wildcats Vs Breakers

Breakers go on the road to face a Wildcats Team that has dropped the last 3 and has dropped out of the top 4. In contrast the Breakers are in the familiar position of sitting top of the table and are on a 7 game win streak after the Cats pulled their pant's down and smacked their asses in round 1 at home.

Will Hudson is in doubt after rolling his ankle at training today. He can put weight on it so is not overly serious.

Nothing is more dangerous than a Perth team that's coming of a loss especially at home in front of that many supporters. If NZ wins they tie their Club winstreak record and level the score 1-1. This one could go either way.

If the cats play like they have they are gona go down by 30! Not missing anything! There just missing shots!! Shooting 30% aint gona win u games! They are not playing the way they play! And nobody can put a finger on it! They should've beat adelaide in both games. The hawks game, no team in the comp can beat a team like how they played that nyt! If they dnt toghen up there gona get there pants pulled down may b even f**kt in the arsd at the same time!

I told everyone here at the start of the season that the rest of the league would catch up to Perth and I got poo-poo'd!

(I also said Townsville would be competitive though, so shows how much I know...)

This thursday at Perth Arena: Cats under pressure.

Perth will finally hit some shots and will bounce back.

NZ are still good, real good. But 3 of their wins have come against Townsville, and another against Tigers pre Flynn, so let's not write home about them until they rack up multiple wins against NZ/Hawks/36ers.

Clearly that was meant to say Cats/Hawks/36ers

36ers haven't beaten NZ in years so don't deserve to be in that statement until they can get a W at home let alone in NZ. The rest is fair LV although Perth pull NZ's pants down at least once a season but NZ win the ones that matter.

LV's statement is still fair. NZ will face more of a challenge in Adelaide or Perth than hosting Townsville.

Yes, but let's not forget, they hadn't won a sunshine swing either for a while and they have now, regardless of how the opposition is faring, they still won back to back nights!

If Hudson is out NZ will be forced to play Vukona & Boucher behind Pledger and slide Leon Henry and or Tom Abercrombie up to the 4. At least Perth aren't as big this season with the loss of Neville.

Breakers have said that Hudson will travel with the team and prob will play some minutes as will Corey Webster.

Breakers without Hudson...

Breakers will be forced to play small ball and if the Wildcats had any sense they would get Pledger into foul trouble moving Vukona to the 5 and Henry to the 4. Wildcats need Lisch back into form to beat the Breakers.

In any case Knight vs Pledger II will be fun to watch as will be Jackson vs Martin/Lisch.

As a Breakers fan I will say the Breakers will continue Perth's horror run and win by 2...

I think the Breakers could easily blow this one out. They must been seething at the loss in round one on a night they were celebrating a title. What better way to get payback but knock off the rival in their new gym. Perth are all over the place, if they play anywhere near the level they did against the 36ers, NZ will grab them by the throat early and cruise from there.

Embarrassing result again. Got their asses spanked, congrats to Perth on the crowd and the win.
