Earlier this year
Hawks v Phoenix Jan12
The battle of the birds, and both are flying with broken wings. From their last 5 games, both teams have only won one game a pop, so to say both are desperate for a win is an understatement. They are like sub-mariners that have spent six months under the seas and are now in port.
Hawks are yet to host the green machine and on the road, the Phoenix don't travel that well. 2 and 6 is their return on the road, but have lost their last 5 road games so there is obviously a bit of bonding needed and maybe Mrs Creek needs to read them all a bedtime story and Mrs Pineau can make sure they have got clean jocks and socks.
This is actually one the Hawks can get if they want it. At home they have knocked off Cairns (twice) and their big brothers Sydney. I know everyone is probably saying SEM have got this W bagged and tagged, but my score predictor says a 92 to 92 scoreline so this will be close.
My kiss of death will go to SEM for a 1 point win. Surely Illawarra will have some brain fart to hand them the game on the last possession or so.
