Cairns v Melbourne Jan 13
Melbourne are hot favourites for the title, but Cairns have got re-newed confidence after some recent massive wins. The win over Brisbane broke the seal, then they were unlucky against Sydney, and then they knocked off Perth in Perth (cue anonymous hater "oh Jack you do have a thing about Cats fans") They would be well justified in carrying that confidence into this game. Another capacity crowd should be expected today.
Melbourne are chock a block full of talent and should go into this one as favourites. I'm expecting United to win this win, but the Taipans have some sting in them and their fangs are poised to strike.
