Hawks v Kings Jan 24

Indigenous round continues with the Kings visiting Dharawal country.

Everyone is lining up to take advantage of the Hawks. The Hawks have had an absolutely caning of late on and off the court. Their season is one to forget, but one of the highlights was smashing their big brother last time they played in the Gong. Can they do it again?, or will Sydney be like a truck without brakes coming down the Escarpment and smash them like a Millennial smashes their avo on toast.

Hawks are zip and 5 going into this contest. Perhaps they need to head to /roastme to have some fun to brighten their day.

The Kings on the other hand are not quite full strength, a bit like modern Australian beer. But even so they should take care of business tonight. The Bogieman will do enough to get the job done. The Bogieman is not the messiah, he's just a naughty boy.

Kings by (pick a number)

Illawarra have beaten Cairns three times and Sydney one from two and both sides should play finals, now that doesn't make sense. I’d say kings should win this easy, as the pressure from the two injured players who should not be to far away will make Sydney hungry and all players playing for spots and time. Blanchfield played well last time against the kings, can he do it again, certainly with aboriginal round taking place you would think so and if a few step up it could be a lot harder than it looks.

Kings by 9 at a guess.

I don't see the connection here.

Slight correction, Jack - "The inaugural Indigenous Round begins on January 29th."

You're a Round early :)

Must be moving it around a bit to suit the teams - which is reasonable.

As this is the only game tonight, really hoping it is close somewhat.

Doubt it will happen though. Kings by 25.

"Any injuries ?"

I haven't heard anything about when Hobson and Anderson return for Hawks but I do wonder what Kings will choose to do with Bogut given they back up again in 2-days.

Been following Blanchfield's career since his early QBL days and this is the first I've heard that he is Aboriginal. I must have been living under a rock :)

They talk up the hawks young players but I'm not convinced there nbl level. Dech probably, certainly a bench player but not a starter and Glover shows some ability. The rest not much except the odd flash here and there. Blanchfield plays to many minutes for what he achieves. Hawks got chase quality imports, starting at the point guard, monster athletic five man and probably a four or three man that plays D as well as scores. Get rid Boone, Coenrads, Anderson and current import.

Kings win on Sunday should get minor premiership even if beaten in Perth. Both Lisch and Moller on sideline so probably close to being back.

Dech is going to be an absolute gun player I reckon. He is young and only just starting to get real exposure.

Dech unconvinced.
Boone broke.
Anderson way past broke.
AJ Nah
Glover undecided
Naar naaaar
Grida naaaar
Froling soft with potential
Coenraad good but old
Blanchfield ditto

Ball is still in town? Go home please

I saw the Hawks coaching staff and they had 4 Asst coaches
No wonder why
They nothing except debt

Yes, they were all guys who had genuine regard and interest in the sport and league and it rubs off as a good product that way (plus not extremely irritable to sit through). Commentary as though viewers are hanging out for the Harlem Globetrotters or looking for a buzz from witty rhyming and game of the century style commentary just says 'crap product' to me.

What about the previous sentence? No wonder why... What does that mean?

First time I have seen Hobson resemble an NBL player.
It is scary how strong Sydney can be at full strength, 6 players in double figures and three more Cooks, Bogut and Bruce all played well.
Add Moller and Lisch to this mob and it would take a choke for them to not win the title.
