Sixers v Hawks Jan 30
Steel City Illawarra travel to the Festival City Adelaide in the second leg of the R17 tussle. Two days ago these teams fought a very tough game and it was only at the last hurdle the Hawks stunned the Sixers and stole the game.
Tonight, they lock horns again.
I don't think there's much between these teams. Randle and Lisch both quality players are the ones who are stealing the show, but it's amazing what a month off the Krispy Kremes has done for Ebi Ere, who looks and plays like a different player from a few months ago and is showing why Joey Wright loves him so much and why Joey has a signed poster of Ebi in his pool room.
AJ Ogilvy and DJ have been slugging it out for years since the represented their states in underage rep teams. That is the other key clash tonight. Control the boards, control the game. Let's hope Team Manager Jarrod slips a spoonful of cement into DJ's gatorade for tonight's game.
Should be a good crowd tonight. Despite what the ill informed Melbourne papers reported the crowds have been fantastic this season - and loud. Perhaps if they weren't too busy drinking double decaf expresso lattes with organically grown soy almond milk with a twist of lemon at their Brunswick cafes, those reporters might actually get it right.
Sixers by 4. Let's Go Sixers, Let's GO!
