Hawks v Taipans 2/1

Definitely no Keanu Pinder (nor for the Brisbane game on Thursday), both teams played on New Year's Eve, Taipans with a win and Hawks with a loss.

Who wins this? Hopefully we do, but it should be a heck of a game regardless!

Who wins, taipans easy. Hawks are a rabble, Frazier while has been ok plays iso ball. Froling ain't doing it on his own.
Cairns by twenty.

Who wins? Well it won't be the Hawks surely? They are in real bad shape. Taipans should win by plenty.

Will the Hawks win another game this season? Maybe, when they play Brisbane.

Cairns by 10 in a game that won't reach any moderate heights.

5 fouls in the first 4 minutes. Refs getting involved early

Looking like woeful crowd, some of the fouls called so soft. You play up straight and get called, charge, block fouls are a joke.

Taipans stinking the place up early. A game that could reach new lows

Bit like a pick up game, we won't play D if you don’t.

I'm certainly not jacket. Lol. I do have problems with nbl refs sometimes though.

Much better 2nd quarter, much more competitive. Grida showing some defensive energy.

Good third quarter and refs let them play. Again grida on D has been great.

Hawks tie it up. 80/80. 6 mins left. Unbelievable!

Well, it could certainly be said that the Hawkies gave this game a good shake, for what they have available.

Hawks did put up a good show. Taipans are dreaming. They're going nowhere.
Coach Forde abusing Hawks players is poor form too.

Hawks much better than all us punters thought, Cairns still never really challenged when it was needed. Hickey iso ball at end was rubbish, Froling, Grida, very good, Harvey ok but really needs a good team to shine.

I didn't see Forde abuse players but if true very poor form certainly after that crap he spewed out after the Melbourne game.

Bad coaching by Jackomas. Having no shooters on the last few possessions to run decoy or secondary options instead had non shooters and Cairns just top locked Harvey.

Has Mayberry a contract to Ref all of Cairns Games, he has done the last 5.
He seem to suffer from (Un)conscience bias

Forde is, what we call in the industry, a bit of a cockhead

Not too bad though, he's all right. But his take on Pinder was one of his worst

Hawks have been very competitive with Siva and Frazier in the line-up, but the pleasing thing about last night was them playing pretty well without those guys. Augurs well for the rest of the season, but they need their keys on the court to pinch some wins.

Loving Sam Froling's work, shows such great composure with the ball for a young big. If he really works in the weight room and hones his three-ball the sky is the limit.
