Premier League Round 2
Four games tonight, will be interesting to see how crowds are on the Friday night games. Looks like strong attendances last weekend.
Forestville vs Woodville
The Eagles rolled all over Eastern last week and appear to be legitimate championship contenders. Woodville would be disappointed dropping one at home to Centrals. I expect Majok to have a field day and Forestvilles guards to overpower Woodvilles. The Warriors will be looking for an improved performance out of import Perry.
Forestville by 22 after a tight first half.
West vs Southern
Game of the round at the new look Port Adelaide. First look at both sides for the season however all reports I've heard are that Wests big import combo are legit. This could be trouble for a Tigers front court which appears less intimidating than previous years. Johns and Thomas are two of the most reliable locals in the comp and these teams always seem to have close battles.
West by 4 to open the court the right way.
Sturt vs North
The Rockets sent a message to the league last week by disposing for SEABL powerhouse Mt Gambier at the launch pad. Dowdell and Starling together looked frightening and will be a near impossible matchup for any team this year. Sturt had a tough weekend facing two elite sides but it won't get any easier this week. Home court advantage won't save them.
North by 27 after cruising in the second half.
Eastern Vs Norwood
Similar to the above, Norwood handled business last week albeit against weak opposition. However new recruits Brine and Legan appeared to fit right in with their system and they look to be a dangerous outfit. Eastern struggled to contain Forestville and while Norwood may not quite have the same firepower I expect they'll have an easy win up the freeway. Of interest will be how the Mavs imports play after having a week to settle in.
Norwood by 19 with Legan shooting 7/12 3s.
There's been some chatter about the girls in the other thread and I would love to hear peoples thoughts on how those games will play out, I just don't really follow the league myself so can't offer any insight into the games.
