Cats v Breakers Jan 25
Lots at play today. Cats still dreaming of a minor premiership and the Breakers dreaming of a top 4 finish. Both looking for the meaning of life.
The Breakers (11/12) have had a pretty good last month or so to put pressure on this in the race for the top, but have had a shocking season on the road (4&7) with many of those wins coming recently. Just when the machine that goes ping was wheeled out, they came back to life. They have won 7 of their last 9 to signal to the rest of the comp that they are just there for their looks.
The Cats will control the tempo of this game from the start and make this a classic Perth-New Zealand game. This game should have more fire than the Gallagher brothers at a dinner party with Patsy Kensit sitting between them. Perth have won both times they have played this season, but both games have been low scoring affairs.
But tonight the Cats offer their guests a wafer thin mint. Cats by 6.
