Cairns v Melbourne Nov 9
A very interesting game coming up and one to watch for Sixers fan.
In what looks like another extremely tight season, splits will be all too critical in what will be a fight for a Top 4 spot. The Sixers have already lost the split with United but are well on their way to gain advantage over our orange friends from the land of the great Bob Katter.
Let's face it, Sydney are done and Brisbane are inventing ways to disappoint. There are six teams fighting for four spots.
Cairns have a bogey team in Adelaide and Adelaide's bogey team is Melbourne. Irony says that Cairns should be Melbourne's bogey team. Melbourne has a very good roster and have already won in Cairns 65:87 so this game looks like it could be another shellacking.
A Melbourne win could see them exert the pressure on the other teams vying for a top 2 spot and place pressure on Cairns to lay out a swag next to Brisbane and listen to Pauline Hansen tell them how good Queenslanders are and how bad the "Mexicans" (ie those south of the border (ie Victorians)) are.
A Cairns win on the other hand would give the Melbourne boys something to think about and place a bit of pressure on the Sixers to get that split.
I think Melbourne have a bit too much fire power for the Snakes and will have plenty of time for a spot of cane toad golf after the game.
