Taipans v Breakers Jan 9
Two of the hottest teams at the moment battle it out in Cairns. The Breakers are on a 5-0 run and the Taipans are 4 and 1 from their last 5 games.
A win to the Taipans would see them jump into 3rd spot over United and then a Breakers win would see them slip into 5th. I can see and OT game coming up...
Cairns are playing some nice ball at the moment and at home in front of great crowds are 8 and 3. Breakers at one stage had no road wins, they now have 4 after someone decided to flick the switch in the back of the players brains to on. Both teams have a not too dissimilar style, but Cairns have got the momentum and are focussed on maintaining top 4. Don't worry New Zealand, at least you'll get a hug from Jacinda when you get off the plane back home
Cairns by 3.
