SF Series 2: Perth v Brisbane Feb28
Brisbane return to the finals for the first time since 2008. It's been a long time between drinks. Back then Ebi Ere ruled the court, there were 13 teams in the league (including the Slingers) and oh, the top four teams were
So here we go again..... will history repeat itself? Back in 2008, Adam Gibson was a Bullet, Mika Vukona was a Breaker, Jason Cadee, Matt Hodgson, Cam Bairstow and Cam Gliddon were skinny teenagers. Damian Martin was a Razorback, Jessie Wagstaff wasn't even Rookie of the Year yet, and most of the Wildcats were high school kids snorkelling off Rottnest Island during summer break.
It's been a tough year for the Wildcats, but even in the face of injury they have secured top spot and deserve their number one ranking going into this series and potentially into the GF series. Their achilles heal will be to take these Bullets lightly.
The Wildcats fan have not been fed raw meat for a week and are starting to get a bit edgy. They're calling for blood. As old meat, Gibbo's probably safe, but it's hard not to see the Wildcats throw a young Bullets development player into the maddening crowd to feast on his carcass. Much like a wildebeest off the savannah.
Welcome to finals Bullets, you need to go through Perth to get a flag, but tonight, your initiation involves getting beaten by double figures.
