Phoenix v Cats Dec 8
Fresh from ripping the Kings a new one, the Cats crack their collective knuckles and say "who's next?"
So far this round all the home teams have hit par, but with Cotton on fire and Kay owning the ring, SEM have their work cut out for them today. They have the fresher legs but Damo will be all over Roberson like a cheap suit. The big question is whether the Cats peaked early, or whether they have enough in the tank.
That leads me to expect two game styles today, SEM will want a fast running game with Creeky on fast breaks slamming down the jam, the Cats will want a more sedate game with tight defence so that in the fourth they have enough in the tank to hold old before the cramps set in.
If the cards fall a certain way, we'll see Cairns in 4th spot later on tonight. I think that will happen today. This game will be close, but Perth on the road go WLWLWL, which means a W is next. I think Perth will sneak this one and don't be surprised for an OT, or double OT game.
