Earlier this year
Sydney v New Zealand Jan 11
New Zealand are on a roll at the moment. People say they have lost their heart when Mika Vukona left, but they have found it the last few games. They will need it tonight when they take on top of the table Sydeney.
Sydney are holding top spot with the slimmest of margins and NZ are making a charge towards 4th spot.
Tonight we will see who the best centre is in this league. The Bogie Man has defied his critics and stood tall amongst his peers, but the long arms of Shawn Long will be out to pinch his crown tonight. Long has shown he has got what it takes in this league and Andrew Bogut would be having a second helping of Weet-Bix this morning. Expect this tussle to define the outcome tonight.
The other tight tussle will be Randle v Ili. Both are as explosive as an angry ex-wife owed child payments and both can turn a game on its head. BUT, the X-factor tonight is David Wear. Wear has he been? In the games where Sydney have been woeful, he has gone missing, but when he has stepped up, Sydney have got across the line. Tai Wesley is the man who can change all of that.
This game is definitely worth skipping the gym and staying home. Don't be surprised if Bogut's colour are lowered by Long tonight. While initially I was thinking Sydney would have this one wrapped up, I'm leaning towards the Breakers by 3
