Earlier this year
Adelaide v Bris-Vegas Jan 12
It's hot, hot, hot in Adelaide and the race for 4th spot is even hotter with Brisbane and Adelaide set to have a go at each other this afternoon.
Perth are under pressure too and could see themselves included in this fight in the next rouse or so if they continue their losing ways.
Brisbane are bouncing along just doing enough at the moment, but they need to do more to secure a finals spot. Adelaide have patches of brilliance dispersed like diamonds in the sands of disappointment that get into the crevices you don't want sand to get into. I'm still trying to work out if Joey is the Joker. A madman with a plan, or just a mad man with a plan.
Today, the battle royale will be served hot and there will be some battles to watch out for. The battle of the Brick Sh!thouses - Hodgson v Frohling. Both young fellows, both built like the proverbial brick. The battle of the Beaus - Cadee v Sobey. Both good looking fellows popular with the ladies, both deadly outside the arc. Then there's the battle of the Beasts - Conger v Patterson. Both deadly around the boards and both able to rip a game apart. Then of course there is Gibbo. He might be coming off the bench these days, but he always seems to find a lazy 10 points against Adelaide.
I've given up tipping. My tip is the kiss of death. Last time these teams met it was Adelaide who beat home team Brisbane by 10, perhaps the away team will win again?
