Breakers v Bullets Dec 9
Round 10 finalises with a Monday night game across the ditch.
Both teams have had recent wins over Illawarra, but hey, I would give South Adelaide's U18 Div 2 boys half a chance at the moment, especially if the Hawks are Ball-less.
Brisbane haven't ventured to Auckland yet this season and New Zealand at home are running 3 and 3, albeit those wins being Illawarra twice and Cairns once. The Bullets have not been impressive on the road, with both of their away wins being against the Hawks.
But, just like you can't beat a battered sav with sauce washed down with L&P, I do like the Breakers at their home ground. I think it's time to rumble and despite having more problems than Jacinda Ardern having an intimate candle light dinner with Donald Trump, the Breakers seem to bounce when required and have got the reserve firepower. Beyond Lamar Patterson, they might as well have Les Patterson taking shots. They are yet to score a ton on the road and have only got there once, but had 5 centuries against them.
The Breakers at home are a bit like a whack a mole, just when one guy is down, someone else stands up and I think this will be the case today with the Breakers reaching behind the fat fryer to serve up a dry, old battered sav to the Bullets.
