Tigers @ Crocs, Sat night

Tips off at 7:30 local (8:30 AEDST).

Who ya got?

Townsville on second night of back-to-back, but sore legs shouldn't be a problem because they didn't break a sweat last night. I think the loss against Cairns will have them playing harder if anything.

Melbourne too big, especially with Hinder out?

Should be a close one.

The Tigers are beyond awful from deep, which is how you will beat Townsville--spread them out and they can't defend you.

Townsville just matches up well with them, due to Melbourne's lack of ball movement and three point shooting.

Crocs will shit on them tonight.

P.s. back-to-backs don't mean much in the way of fatigue.

Could you give us a rundown of the first half? I was watching the Sydney vs Wollongong game.

Bad weekend for the Crocs...

Dennis has been putting the losses down to lack of effort from but I think that's throwing them under the bus a little bit. Sure, the guys haven't looked as alive as in recent wins against Mel and NZ but is there a point where he needs to mix up his coverages?

As many coaches have said, this league is so well-scouted and with only 8 teams you can't afford to lull into predictability. I'm not sure if you can run a trap falling back into a zone for 40 minutes every single game and not have someone beat you to your spots and exploit that predictability.
