Premier League Round 4 Preview
Norwood vs West
Could make a case for match of the round but will have to settle for second this week. Arguably the two most stable, veteran sides in the competition go to battle in a clash of undefeated sides. Some great talent on both sides with Lycett, Webbers, Legan, Brine facing Thomas, Jefferson, Heyward, Truslove. West have the depth, but I favour Norwoods starters slightly.
Norwood by 3.
Southern vs Centrals
Tigers sitting 0-2, an unfamiliar position for them over the past few years. Seemingly a better effort last week against Mount Gambier but still couldn't get over the line. Centrals ran into the Forestville juggernaut but had a great week 1 win. Tigers will be looking for more contributors, Centrals will be looking for someone to step up as they had vs Woodville.
Tigers by 7.
Sturt vs Eastern
A battle of the teams some thought may finish the season in the cellar. Mavs certainly proved some doubters wrong, seemingly on the right track with their culture and younger players stepping up. Both imports appear solid and a tough cover. Sturt will be happy to have a slightly easier opponent after starting their season with some of the powerhouse sides.
Mavs by 9.
South vs Woodville
Two undefeated sides will be hungry to get their first win on the board. Allmon will be a huge focus for the Warriors as South have struggled to find a secondary scorer behind him. Warriors have lots of contributors but no stand outs, and will be looking at their imports for more before handing them the pink slip.
South by 3.
North vs Forestville
An early season true blue blockbuster! North stumbled last week in an unlucky loss to the Flames but will be out for revenge this week. Forestville handled Centrals easily but have yet to face any defensive pressure like they will this week. Makok and Teys vs McVeigh and BJ will be important while Norths imports will be too much for Forestvilles to handle. Someone is about to be brought back down to earth.
North by 5.
Fantastic week of hoops with great games all over the city. Everyone should get along to a game as the standard this year has not disappointed.
