Earlier this year
Brisbane v Melbourne Feb 1
So much at stake for both teams and the winner likely to be 4th after this game. Brisbane could sure up 4th with a win to take them to 14 wins and a Melbourne win could see both teams on 13 and 12 separated by %.
You would have to say that past form goes out the window this time of year. The split is a win each and the form team is "five wins in a row" Brisbane - what? They have one guy to thank for that, and it's not Lamar Patterson. Will Magnay has been a ball magnet and really lifted when needed.
Melbourne have thrown away a top 4 spot. They say if you love something, release it and it'll come back to you. Not this baby. Melbourne opened up the cage and their golden canary shot out only to go into the Brisbane cage.
Melbourne will find it hard to assert dominance today and I suspect the lead will change more times than we can count. Tight game all around, but I suspect win #6 in a row looms for the banana benders. No soy latte for dis United. This game will be won in the 3rd quarter.
