R9: Sixers @ Townsville
The Crocs have gone full bore to ensure the wooden spoon heads to NQ. Despite some early competition, they have successfully put themselves in a position that effectively ensures they get the early draft picks in the 2013 NBL Draft. Their ingenius plan may be to lull opposing teams into a false sense of security, then strike while they aren't expecting it, but it's a dangerous ploy that might even see the Crocs be beaten by the 2006 Central Districts Women's ABL team. But, as we all know, every defeat brings a joyful victory even closer.
You know a club is in trouble when the Cheerleaders get a hammering in the media! I guess they couldn’t get the WAGs to fill in and start dancing and gyrating on chairs for fear of distracting the players in the time outs.
Enter the Sixers who might just fall for a trick as old as the old "three card monte" You know the one I am talking about, “oh, we’ve just had a player retire” or “We’ve just signed a new player” and WHAMMO! the first game with the player, the team that couldn’t tie the shoe laces on a slip on boot, now becomes as dextrous as a one armed bomb disposal expert with an itchy scrotum and as nimble as a Russian ballerina dancing on Faberge eggs.
After Woolpert has shuffled the coconuts, which one will Marty select?
This is a game that will test the Sixers. They will want to keep the spot in the 4 and won’t want to be the first notch in the Croc’s belt since 30/3/12. They need a win to show every they are serious, but if the Crocs got a win, the stadium would be louder than a Sapper Hawaiin shirt.
Despite the introduction of Nevill, The Sixers have been playing as a team and should snag this one by 7 !
