OUTS:

Important game here for both sides, South Perth win and they probably shore up a finals berth, Osborne Park win and with my predictor means they can finish 4th. Lose, and they are out. Osborne Park did win there in 2019 by 7 shots, and also 2018. Coupled with that South Perth havent been that dominant at home, a 4-3 record. Can Osborne Park spring the surprise of the day and win here? I think they can, South Perth have also looked shaky the last 5 games for a 2-3 record, Osborne Park with a good win last week against a weakened Manning but a good win nonetheless. They are a confidence side and I'm going for them to win a scintillating battle.
Osborne Park 6-2

OUTS: L Beurteaux

Manning need to win this game and keep the pack behind them at bay and they should do so, home ground against Mosman Park sitting 9th and likely going back to White despite a gallant season. Shane Knott is back from Bali, Nathan Jones also from his Australian Softball duties. Greg Hogg drops back and Blake Butler unavailable. Lewis Grigg stringing a couple of games together now and that will be critical as they look to play finals with the best squad possible. Louie Beurteaux out for Mosman Park which is a big loss, 5 wins for the season as skipper the second most at his club. Martin Bigg comes in, Willie Tan taking back the reins. I think Manning will win in a comfortable margin and do the ring around afterwards to see how others have gone during the day
Manning 7-1

INS: No change
OUTS:

Seems a mismatch on paper, top placed Doubleview travel to bottom placed Warnbro and you would have to select Doubleview quite easily. Warnbro have been plucky at home, 2 wins and 5 losses but those losses outside of Kardinya haven't been massive. Barry Kalinowsky is back as well, so expect Warnbro to come out fighting but ultimately fall short.
Doubleview 8-0

OUTS: K McKay

North Beach at home where they have a 4-3 record this year, but the 3 losses have been over high quality sides - South Perth, Manning and Osborne Park, and Kardinya are also a quality outfit. They'll be hurting after the 1 shot loss week after 6 wins in the row and will be keen to put their finals campaign back on track. Kevin McKay is a big loss for them, Rob Foy filling his shoes as a skipper and is no slouch. Kardinya is 4-3 away, including winning their past 3 away games so travelling won't be a concern to them. North Beach started the season so brightly but have 6 of the last 7 games. Hard to see them winning here but won't surprise if they do
Kardinya 6-2

INS: No change
OUTS:

Our final game is the annual "Pup Cup", the game to remember Daniel Patterson after his tragic loss of life at the clubs where he played his most recent seasons. A late change for Bassendean sees Dan Nicholls withdraw due to a leg injury, Beau Manton will take the reins on that rink and Wayne Neilson returns. It's another game where is Bassendean win then they are almost assured of finals action, lose and they may still miss out. Cambridge are playing for pride, and they are a proud bunch and will be throwing everything at Bassendean and will want to retain the Pup Cup. They can win on 3 rinks and take it, the first fixture saw Bassendean win by 2 shots and 6.5 rinks. Bassendean havent got a good home record either this year, it is 3-4 and Cambridge have a 3-4 away record. Going to be a close game
Basso of course!
