Well, this has turned into the ultimate SA Great vs Victoria contest. Australia is like a family of boys with NZ being the crazy cousin that comes over when he wants to. NSW is the eldest and is always #1, but Victoria is, and always will be, second best, or "Number 2". They play that role of annoying elder brother well. The one who gets beat up the eldest, but who has to beat up on the younger brothers, so he picks on the brother closer to him as brother 3 fights back too hard, but brother 4 is a little more reserved.
Both teams carry form into the game tonight after “comfortable” 2-0 wins in their SF series. Melbourne deserve to go in as favourites and any thing less than a win tonight is an underachievement. This is the best of 5 and deserves to go all the way. Pound for pound, United have more talent on paper, but a team of champions is always beaten by a champion team.
I'm going for the Sixers to get the series and I call upon all non-United fans to get behind the Sixers. Everybody, go and grab a plunger, because you know what we do with “number twos”!
