Earlier this year
Melbourne v Cairns
Very much a danger game for United, but not from a losing perspective, from an injury perspective. The universe works in mysterious ways and these games have the potential to cause havoc for those who don't take them seriously. DV would not want anything to happen to his stars.
United are locked into finals and a win tonight puts the pressure on Perth for top spot and sets it up for an exciting final game. But, strange things happen in these games, especially when a team has nothing to lose, like Cairns.
With pride on the line, I would expect to see this game being a game of two halves. Cairns will want to pressure United in the first half and have nothing to lose. United would just want to get the W. I'm particularly looking forward to the People's MVP (Trimble) vs the League MVP (Ware).
I'm expecting the score might be even at the half, or even with Cairns in front, but United to put the foot down in the second to get the win. If you see CG43 with his wrist in ice, you'll know he's ready for action.
While the first half might be even, be prepared for the Valentines Day massacre in the second half. United in double figures in the end.
