Melbourne vs New Zealand 14th Oct
So far this season, every away team has blitzed the home team. Mind you it is only round 1.
New Zealand were dacked by Brisbane at home and Melbourne took out an absolute epic game in Wollongong. Quadruple overtime. As rare as finding a basketballer without ink.
This game could go either way. You would expect those Breakers to have the fresher legs, but Melbourne at home... I would be disappointed if the stadium was not packed to the rafters with every Melbourne fan. Finding a barista in Fitzroy to get a soy latte with lactose free organically grown almond milk and a double twist might be hard. Keep an eye out for the SE Melbourne cheer squad barracking for the Breakers.
The Heart Breakers will have the fresh legs, but I'm thinking their enthusiasm will be easily overcome by the talent of United.
First home team to chalk up a win this season.
