Cairns v New Zealand Feb 6
Bottom two teams clash tonight. Cairns are stumbling through this season like a drunkard walking through a blackberry thicket. They just can't seem to get it to work.
New Zealand skipped the plane to Perth after a "mystery illness" with 10 of their players. I didn't know the tap water was that bad and there's a reason why you don't for a second pie floater after winning at the Casino. Still, some people will do anything to get out of going to Perth. Although the one star reviews of that alternative vegan curry restaurant using roadkill indicates art this "mystery illness" could be.
We haven't seen a great deal of the Breakers so far on their magical adventure. Don't know what they have been doing apart from receiving messages of support from Jacinta and making TikTok videos in their hotel rooms. With Cairns already 6 games down, getting the W for them is a matter of urgency. When these teams fight over that W like a wishbone who will win?
Cairns have been tucked into bed at night by their mums, whereas the Breaker Boys are getting tucked into bed by Dan Shamir who tells scary bedtime stories. My tip is for the Snakes to get that wishbone.
