Wollongong Rollerhawks would have to be the clear favourites for the NWBL title.

What about the Perth Wheelcats or the Brisbane Spinning Bullets?

After Round 2 games the Wollongong Rollerhawks remain undefeated on 7-0. They easily accounted for the under-manned Sydney Metro Blues in round 2 taking each game by 70 points (approx). With the additional of Australian Rollers big man Auprince coming back into their team, they are easily the benchmark so far this season. Are Sydney going to see McPhail, Chambers, CJ or Skuse return from last year? If not, it will be a long season for last years silver medallist.

Adelaide hosted the Perth Wheelcats, with the Wheelcats taking the W in all 3 games to be 4-3 after round 2. Adelaide drop to 1-6. The match-up definitely closed over the weekend with the first game being a 30pt game and the third game 14pts. Adelaide appear to have been without Jay Dohnt which clearly affects their line-up but the reemergence of Luke Watkins will strengthen their team should they all be there together. Perth are still waiting on Robbins to return, and he will strengthen their line-up in some critical games.

The third match-up over the weekend in Brisbane saw the Kilsyth Cobras travel. The Spinning Bullets protected their home court taking the series 2-1. Both teams now share 2nd on the ladder with a 5-2 record. Kilsyth averaged 62 points per game with the Spinning Bullets logging 76, 53, 82. Saturday night the ball clearly did not find the basket for the Bullets. Kilsyth travelled with 7 players, 3 of whom could not sub out. Ouch ! the Bullets on the other hand managed to sub through 14 players over the weekend. Kilsyth should welcome back Josh Alison by round 3 whilst the SB still have Latham and Bartley to rejoin their squad. Bullets could well be the deepest bench in the league.

Red Dust Heelers enjoyed the bye round, and again in Rd 3 ! Not sure that is a good or bad draw as they will be hoping that in Rd 4 their additions are ready to roll.

Round 3 starting May 4th sees Spinning Bullets travel to Perth to face the Wheelcats, Kilsyth v Rollerhawks and Adelaide v Sydney.
