Earlier this year
Adelaide v Sydney Feb 6
Sixers with 3 wins on the trot are looking to make it four in a row. When was the last time that happened? I think Brett Maher still had colour in his hair. The dynamic dual of Giddey and Humphries are putting on a show at the moment and getting the job done. Look out Toyko 2020, no 2021, 2022?
Oh but Sydney, what can you say except "Hello Dexter Kernich-Drew". He's been added as an injury cover for Angus Glover and with Adelaide reported as having the most serial killers per head of population, his late nights boat trips out into the gulf haven't gone un-noticed.
At 1 and 3 Sydney would be keen to finish their road journey on a high, and the way Dejan Vasiljevic was throwing around that nut the last game I bet whatever ice Dexter has left over they have had Dejan's hands on that ice for fear of him injuring them. Andrew Bogut spending the week following him around opening doors for him and other personal tasks. Coles and Woolies have reported shortages of cotton wool and bubble wrap. No vegetarian curries for Sydney during the week.
Probably the big Q this game. Should we put a fork in Casper? Is he done, or will he come back strongly and show the Adelaide crowd just why he is in the league.
Oh....you all know where my loyalties lie and you know I not giving a kiss of death....
