A Webber vs H Staude
D Webber vs S Johns
M Lycett vs B Brine
B McGriff vs CJ Turnage
L Standbridge vs G Mays
Norwood showed yet again they are dangerous on their night, easily accounting for West at Port Adelaide on Saturday. McGriff again proved a tough cover, scoring at will both inside and out. Lycett back playing 40 minutes balances their team out nicely. Last time they played Southern they handled business easily, with the final score flattering the Tigers. Southern had been the cream of the crop prior to that outting but haven't been the same since. Turnage vs McGriff a critical matchup as both have had big games in their teams wins against the other this season. Some great match ups in this one and I expect a full house down at Morphett Vale to support their Tigers. I think they'll be disappointed.
Norwood's veteran finals experience to get them an 8 point victory and send them to the GF.
Forestville vs West
March 17th: West 83 def Forestville 72
May 26th: West 92 def Forestville 85
A Doyle vs A Spadavecchia
B Teys vs J Legan
M Harris vs P Thomas
J Richard vs T Dowdell
D Johnson vs B Truslove
West underwhelmed last week in what was a disappointing performance while Forestville used their get out of jail free card while being under manned. I expect Forestville to finally be at full strength in this one, with Doyle to return and create a potent perimeter lineup. Not sure how Forestville will start for this but I think listed above is their best lineup. West bring Jordan West off the bench and Tom Kubank possibly back from his stint with the Sydney Kings. I expect plenty of cross matching in this one. West were flat last week and will have to be better to be competitive this week. I'm tipping even if they are, it won't be enough.
DJ to have 35, Forestville by 14.
Hopefully both venues are jam packed for these ones!
