Adelaide v Brisbane Feb 15
Round 5 finishes with the Brisbun Sixers heading back to Brett "White Fox" Maher Arena to have another go at Adelaide. Adelaide have announced the arrival of Brandon Paul and it sounds like Jeremy Kendle's services might not be required? At least he has played some NBL games, but he could be one of the few Sixers players never to play a game. It reminds me of old mate Darren Bartsch. Who the F is Darren Bartsch I hear you say? Well he holds the record for the most AFL clubs without playing a single AFL game. Gets drafted by Geelong, then Brisbane, then gets into the foundation squad of the Crows, gets picked up by Essendon, then heads off to West Coast, looks like he is about to play, does a knee or something, eventually has been associated with 5 clubs, AFL games played.....same as me.....0. "what clubs did you play for Jeremy?" "Sydney and Adelaide" "How many games did you play for Adelaide?" "33 less than I played for the Kings"
Sobey had another cracker of a game but he was the only Pseudo Sixer in double figures. They were out rebounded 39 to 52 with Isaac Humphries crashing boards and swatting balls like he owned that key like a property developer. Yes, Hodgson was out and comes back tonight, but like an ash tray on a motor bike, will he be useful in stopping Humphries? Humphries down as having 6 blocks, but maybe that's all the fingers the bench had because it looked more than that. The Sixers just need to keep on feeding that boy wildebeest carcass and undo his leash on game night.
Obviously Brisbun with a bit of work to do if they want to get this one off the Sixers. Teysie outscoring half (ie 5 players) the Brisbun outfit should be enough for them to be practicing their shooting, otherwise we might as well have a 5 on 1, and Teysie would beat them.
My only tip tonight is get a haircut, get a job and be nice to your mum.
