Earlier this year
Sydney v Melbourne Feb 8
Nothing but M A S S I V E games this round and none come bigger than these two heavyweights slogging it out in the ring.
Melbourne are scoring more centuries than Bradman at the moment and have an average score of 99.94. They head up to Sin City to face the Violet Crumbles who have locked in finals action for the first time for a while. Last time they were in the finals was about 4 Prime Ministers ago and Jason Cadee was still in high school.
This game is bigger than Bogut standing on tippy toes. Top spot is still up for grabs and a win to Melbourne could see them hold that spot. A Sydney win would help them jostle with Perth for 2nd and maybe steal top spot if results go their way.
There's some huge matchups across the board and so this game will be a great one to watch. It will be a classic NSW v Vic contest, but only SA is allowed to "kick a Vic" so maybe those sons of convicts can chain them down to a fridge and drop them off the 10 mile mark off Sydney Heads.
Sydney at home should be serving up a roast with all the trimmings to their fans, but have served up a charred steak of rump on a disposal paper plate washed down with warm flat beer. They can make amends tonight, but the form those latte boys are in tells me United might score another century and take home the goodies tonight.
