Earlier this year
Kings v Snakes Jan 11
Forget about mowing the lawns, there's a reason to be inside watching the Telly, and if you're in Sin City, a very good reason to get to Qudos Bank Arena. It's 1 v 3 and Cairns have not packed their brown underpants, these guys are serious and the Bogieman doesn't scare them.
Last time they played in Sydney, Cairns won by 11, and in round 1, which seemed a decade ago, the Kings won in Cairns. I don't think there's an obvious favourite today. It's like having a mother daughter moment in the nightclub, but you don't know who's the mother and who is the daughter.
Cairns are 5 from 5, Kings 2 from 5. Top of the table Kings have got the Cats right behind them like a proctologist waiting for them to slip up, but even if Sydney loses they won't steal that top spot. Cairns can't seem to do anything wrong at the moment and are making every post a winner.
My score predictor is saying Kings 97 to 94 but I'm as convinced as Scomo is that these fires were climate change. I'm going for an upset.
Cairns by 3....
