Hawks v United Feb 10
Round 5 kicks off with what is likely to be the MOTR. Undefeated United venture to the Steel City in an attempt to pluck the Hawks. Both teams have had very good starts to the season and sit 1 and 2 in what is likely to be a very tight season where every win matters.
United were lucky they were wearing their brown jocks last round with Perf all over them in the first half and up by 5 at half time making it look like a Perf win, but Perf ground their cogs in the second half allowing United to get the W and stay undefeated. Even Chris Goulding tormented the Wildcats with a calf injury just to rub a bit of salt in the wound. "Oh, even without our top scorer we can beat you" I'm actually a little disappointed wth the Perf loss, apart from the Red Army, did anyone else shed a tear?
The ILLAWARRA Hawks went down like soy latte in Brunswick against SEM. The Creeksters pushing the dagger deep to the hilt into the belly of the Hawks in the 3rd quarter to ruin their perfect start. Steel men are tuff, so I expect they'll pull that dagger out, lick the blood off the blade and go again.
It’s going to be a great game tonight. Illawarra would be on a high and with this being the first home game of the season will be out to get a solid win. United, well they have a reputation to uphold to try to go through undefeated. Rumour has it Jock Landale and the boys will do a nudie run and jump into the Yarra if they do. Eddie Maguire is looking for a job and might be dusting off his resume for Hutchy. Imagine if Eddie somehow got into basketball admin. I like how these teams matchup, or don’t match up. A couple of good shooting teams and no doubt Gorj has done his homework.
I actually think the Hawks might be good enough, but then again, I hope there's a nudie run.
United gets my Kiss of Death
