Earlier this year
Illawarra v Perth May 31
R21 kicks off with the red, black and white team playing the red, black and white team. Oh, Eddie Maguire would be furious, but it's 2 vs 3 and what a game this will be.
The ladder is far from set, and the only thing of which we are sure is the Cairns have missed out, Mike Kelly is looking for a tourniquet, Breakers are looking for two wins to leap frog the hapless Sixers and the Sixers are hoping that United don't go too hard.
Brissy needs 3 solids wins and some solid 30 point wins, Sydney need two wins, SEM need at least one win and Illawarra need to back this one tonight, although it could be a final preview. I think Illawarra will be sharper than a samurai sword tonight and looking to cut the head off the beast.
The Cats need to finish on equal wins to do a Steven Bradbury and steal top spot off the latte sippers. If they win 2/2 (Cats, Adelaide) they are guaranteed top spot, The Cats need this and will not give up. This has to be the MOTR, although there are a couple of others too.
I would love the see the Hawks get up tonight, but I think a Cats win tonight and a Cats win over United in Perth on Friday will set up Cats fans to barrack for Adelaide to beat Melbourne on the Sunday. Just because I love seeing Casts fans barrack for Adelaide, my Kiss of Death goes to the Pussycats tonight
