Illawarra v Brisbane Dec 31

Who needs a Tasmanian team when you have great double headers like today?

First up, the boys from Bris-Vegas suit up against the Steeltown Warriors. The game is early, so they will have plenty of time to head back up the escarpment to watch the Harbour fireworks. With a game in Sydney only a couple of days ago, rumour has it the Brissie boys have been billeted to the Hawks players and seen the tourist attractions of the town, including a surf with Oscar.

Plenty at stake in this game. Brisbane (8/8) are sitting in 5th spot and have Illawarra (7/9) right in their tail lights. Illawarra is a different team at home and like Bevo said "there's no better team bonding than winning." I guess he never heard of the old footy club trick of keys in the fruit bowl.

I can't see this game being a high scoring game unless it goes to OT, and we all know games that go to OT in the Gong go on a loop for a few OT's.

My mind says Brisbane should have this one in the bag and the Team Manager should have the bus idling ready so the boys can jump in after the game and get to the fireworks, but something tells me the fireworks are going to be in Wollongong.

I'm going to tip a win to the Gonggers in a hard fought game.

Bullets should be able to get the win. Last time they played (and lost) in Illawarra, they were without Lamar Patterson and we all know the type of impact he has on the game.

But there's a good chance Illawarra might have another huge game like their last against Perth. If the home crowd gets going and the boys are hungry for a positive end to 2018, they'll bring enough energy to take down the Bullets.

Wonder if Bevo will get Jett to mark up on Patterson, like he did with Cotton...

I would've thought this game would generate more interest than Cairns v Perth.
I AM WRONG.

How much do the Bullets need to win by to usurp the 36ers on the ladder?

I suppose it doesn't matter really 20 point lead already and not even half time.

Bullets will go up to 4th and 36ers drop back to 5th.

I'm pretty sure he's under contract next season but I think the Hawks might need to move on from Bevo.

Beck should rid the team of Cedric and Conklin. I like Jett, he plays hard and competes, not the most talented important a long stretch but I can see the effort. Conklin spends most his time bitching at the refs and Jackson's care factor looks like it is a very thin slice above zero.
