Snakes v Sixers Jan 18
Match of the Day.
Third placed Taipans will be looking to hold onto that spot and do it in front of a packed house. If there has been one great thing about this season, it is that the snakes are playing to good crowds and the crowds have been putting Brisbane to shame.
The Sixers have a never say die attitude and like an SAS raid, will be looking to parachute in behind enemy lines, set their charges, then get out of there with the goods.
Both have a similar play style, but Cairns are not a high scoring team despite their playing style scoring 5 less points per game than the Teys led boys from the city of fine wine. Sixers are lot more Laissez-faire in defence giving up an average of 8 more points per game than their little orange friends. No Noi, but noi worries.
Sixers need a win, but I feel we will be more disappointed than a social justice warrior with nothing to complain about, or a sporting club not in a marginal electorate going for a grant.
Should be a fast paced game, but momentum is with Cairns and that Freight Train is hurtling down the tracks.
Cairns are so confident they are calling the subs themselves. Cairns by 2
