Halfway point of ABL season

Now we have reached the halfway point of the mens ABL season who are people favouring for the premiership and which players have been the standouts for their respective clubs??

West Women will be very hard to beat. Standouts for them are Sam Woosnam and Nikita Martin. Both are medal chances you would think.

Depends with sam and nikita if they have taken votes off eachother. I think either Kerrin truslo
ve or jo hill will jump up and win it.

Holmes + Ng = Championship.

The Feagles have done very well and the Mavs provide the other end of the bookshelf.

I would expect Sturt to have a 9-0 run to tip the Feagles from top spot. IMO Norwood at risk of dropping down to 5th (or lower) 57 against Sturt is the lowest ABL score all season and it's difficult to see that "record" being beaten. Their last 3 games are at home and a cunning coach may get them over the line with 3 late W's.
North need to extract a digit if they want finals action or be edged out by either of the big cats.

Tigers have shown how much they rely on their import and with the Lions, are they the only threat to the top 5?

Woodville and South have had more home games than away in the first half and haven't taken advantage of their home court. Perhaps they should consider next year's roster changes already. Mavs are yet to win at home - will they be the only team not to taste a home win this ABL season?

Compare Tigers stats with and without JM and you'll see what I mean. He's worth 10 ppg net to the team.

from what I've seen at games and trainings, not impressed but I guess stats don't lie...

Sturt would have to be the red hot favourites at this point. Sitting pretty in second spot, just destroyed the 2008 premiers and only had the big man Holmes for three games. You'd think poised to make a real run in the second half of the season leading into the finals.

lions are going to come back and be a hard running team to beat

I think the Lions will be a hard team to beat with Prince on the floor and if he gets the ball he will put up the points.

Prince played against South (the bottom team) and they still lost! Centrals will be easy beats just like they have been for the last 10 years
