DisUnited v Taipans Feb 13
Round 20, the final round kicks off with the people's team taking on the Soy Boys from Tram City. Nothing really at stake for the Orange Army, they will finish 3rd regardless of the results this weekend so they can either play it cool, or else they can get out their magnifying glasses and burn the ants.
Melbourne have punched beneath their weight this season. Champion signings, big city budget, and all the trappings to boot. They're even had a cross town rival for local derbies so they don't have to travel as much. It's all gone belly up for the boys who can't even beat a certain regional city team this season. They are 0-3 against the Orange boys. I can't remember a season when Cairns have been so dominant over a Melbourne team. Has Mike Kelly found himself a whip? Where's the gimp suit?
Take nothing away from Cairns. These boys have done their fans proud.
United need a win this game to keep their chances of forcing a three way shootout at high noon alive. Just as CG43 pulls out his guns, a dozen bad ass dudes are riding their horses into town. They are travelling well and providing they don't take it easy this round stand a very good chance at a series clean sweep of United this season.
Melbourne will be playing out of their skin to win this, but the damage is done, even if they get a win, 4th spot is a bridge too far. Wave bye bye to the season boys..the soy has gone sour.
Cairns by 3.
