New Zealand v Melbourne Nov 16
Game of the round.
Today we travel to Invercargill on the South Island. For those who don't know much about this town, all you need to know is that it is not the end of the world, but it you stand on tippy toes you can see it. It's cold, it's windy, its colder than Melbourne on a summer's day. If you thought Melbourne was grey and ugly..... nah, nothing is uglier than Melbourne.
Great matchups and great opportunity for both teams. Melbourne can't catch Perth, but two wins this round could see NZ put pressure on those floppy cats.
Ware will obviously have a field day, but the Long-Boone wrestle will be the thing to watch. Boone has the bogey man on Sunday, but can the long arms of Shawn Long tire him too much.
I would say get to the game, but it's too late to jump on a plane to cross the ditch if you haven't already. If you are watching on the telly, just grab a battered sav, it'll be just like you're there Bro.
Both teams travelling OK, but NZ are returning to the form that saw them dominate. I'm expecting a great game with NZ to pip them at the post.
