Cairns v Sydney 231112
The Sixers are sitting pretty in the four, but have some stiff competition to hold their spot long term. Whatever the result tonight, they will stay there, but who do we want to win?
Sydney seem to be the side that are unpredictable this year with the Hammer extracting wins from tight games like a dentist extracting a tooth without anaesthetic, whereas Cairns are well placed to exploit their home court to their advantage.
Madgen is having his best season yet and almost scoring at will. Aaron "floppy Joe" Bruce is flourishing under the tutelage of Heal and Sydney's team espirit de corps is their strength.
Wilson is my favourite Taipan, Tragagh a close second.
I think this will be a tight game with Crosswhite holding the key to tonight's success one way or another. A highlight will be the Bruce vs Bruce matchup if they get a chance. Cairns is a long way from the dusty floor in Hornets stadium.
I hoping and tipping for a Cairns win to keep the Sixers in the 4.
