R19: Wildcats v Breakers
The Breakers opened and will closeout this round with games against top 4 teams. While they have locked in 2nd spot, the 'Cats can almost lock in 3rd spot with a win today. This could be a preview to the Prelims, so whoever gets a win today will have the psychological edge over the other moving into the playoffs.
The Cats have welcomed back Knight and have stopped their slide without him. He is the V8 engine in their jalopy, without him, they look more like a dune buggy. The Breakers have beaten Perth all 3 times so far this season and they have done so by sharing the load around.
Gee, if I was a Wildcat fan I would be worried about this game. Although the Breakers have played this round, they have the wood on you this season and that might just be Vickerman being a bit smarter than Gleeson in the finer details. The Breakers are up +32 on the Cats.
While 13,000 fans makes it hard for visiting teams, a strong start by the Breakers will be like the cops raiding a party and smashing the sound system. I'm thinking the Breakers will do just that and silence the crowd.
