United v Kings Dec 14
Can this round get any better?
Cairns and Cats kicked it off on Thursday in front of a packed house with a game that could have gone either way of it wasn't for the brilliance that is "Cotton Candy" Last night SEM scored the highest losing score in a 40 min game in Mitch Creek’s homecoming game to his old stomping ground in a game that was undecided until the very last second. Don’t worry, Joey tried his best to lose it in true Sixers fashion.... (Classic Joey move 101: Shall we put Teys on in the clutch?)
Just when fans though they had time to pop around to the Mother in Law’s for a cuppa, this game will give them an excuse to plop on the couch. The top placed Kings lock horns with United, who are doing their very best to get to number one, but hey, they are Victorians so they are used to being #2 behind New South Welshmen.
I would like to say that both teams carry reasonable form into this game, but Sydney had a woeful weekend last weekend. They crunched their gears in the West and then when the Snakes slithered into the Harbour City, they were no match for the hottest team in the league. They called for it, but the anti-venom did not come in time. Yep, double dacked in a weekend.
For Sydney, was it just a shocking weekend, or have the Violet Crumbles returned? It would be a shame to see them crash and burn, but serious questions need to be asked whether their suburb early form has evaporated and now they are just another team.
United took some time to get out of the blocks, but are travelling quite nicely now. CG43 celebrating his 300th in style last round and there's no reason why the party won't continue.
United by 7
