Brisbane-New Zealand Nov 11
In world war 2 if Australia was invaded the plan was to essentially give them Australia up until to "Brisbane line". New Zealand have always been our friends in time of war, but when it comes to sport, as soon as they play a team from the "West Island" (aka Australia), as soon as they cross the no mans land of the Tasman Sea, a switch is flicked. Their eyes get bigger, their arms get stronger, their pain threshold grows larger. Today the Brisbane Line will be tested.
I thought the Brisbane-Perth game was great, but this might rival that match of the round. The Breakers easily accounted for Cairns at home earlier in the round, putting them to the sword and showing no mercy. I'm expecting the Breakers will have plenty of energy left in the tank and will go over the trenches early to press their advantage.
The final stanza will decide this game. Brisbane have slightly more tired legs and I'm expecting Captain Abba to present terms to Captain Gibbo. Gibbo to face his Waterloo.
Brisbane to fade in the fourth, Breakers by 4.
