Phoenix v Breakers May 12
The Phoenix have lurched from disaster to disaster recently, but have an exceptional opportunity to rise from the ashes and fly into 3rd spot. They have had the wood on the Breakers this season, who will certainly cherish the "participation award" ribbon when Jacinda pins it on their jersey and gives them all a bug hug and a bowl of warm chicken noodle soup when they get home. With a bit of luck Clarke might take them out fishing as a reward for their service.
But it's also a massive opportunity for New Zealand. They might not catch Adelaide, but with both teams on a hat trick of losses, it's a hat trick neither team wants, much like finding yourself missing an easy layout.
All the pressure is on the Phoenix to get this one, and while the Breakers are on a wonderful adventure, The SEM birds might look like Crebain to them and could swoop down and peck their eyes out. SEM by 12
