Funny North v Eastern - ABL game of the week
Out of the games this week, my pick for game of the week is the Eastern v North.
F/ville v Woodville - the eagles men are white hot at the moment, while the womens game will be a scrappy whitewash.
West v Centrals - Both these mens team are hot cold, Centrals having a cracking start to the season, but dropped off since, womens game is a mere formality.
Sturt v South - Good match ups in both men and women, close 2nd for Game of the Week.
Southern v Norwood - Don't know much about either teams, could be close going on form, Norwood slightly favourites?
North v Eastern - Both men's and women's game are important for finals placings.
Mavericks Women have been in great form, defeating Forestville at Wayville then knocking off South two weeks ago in Mt Barker, looking for another win at home. North have themselves just knocked off West.
North women looking to consolidate top spot, only one game clear of Sturt and South, while Mavs women, two games clear of West, will be looking to close the gap on Forestville.
In the mens game Mavs are 7-8, one win out of finals, and North are 6-9, two wins away. Both teams need the win to make finals.
Mavericks men had a mid-season crisis, dropping 6 games, turning that around against woodville, and backing up against southern last week. North have been hot and cold also losing to South, then pumping Southern, defeating Centrals (at STARplex) but losing against westies last week.
Both men's teams have been hot and cold all season, but i think they are both geniune finals contenders (on their day), the game could be decided by who brings their 'game face'. Last time these teams met in round 6, Eastern recorded a 16 point win at Hillcrest.
