Kings v Hawks Feb 14
After being undefeated in their Queensland jaunt, the Hawks have lost two in a row and now face the prospect of the anchor of three straight losses tying them down. Sydney have won their last two, and on Friday night had a 10 point win agains the lacklustre Breakers. This battle of the Cockroaches will be a delight.
There's no love lost between these two NSW teams. Gorj returns to his old stomping ground with his Hawks. I hope he's brought flowers and chocolates. Harvey & Jessup are playing well and Sam is showing up Harry. Although one of the Foundation teams, Illawarra is the younger brother to the big brother in Sydney. Sydney are starting to find their feet so the pressure is on them to seal the deal.
I'm trying not tipping winners any more, and at this stage it's hard to see either team sweeping the other team off their feet.
