Well it looks like it's game on, albeit with some restrictions in play. The wet weather also making things interesting with 3 games scheduled to be on a synthetic surface, 1 of them indoors. My tipping this year has been horrendous so let's see if i can turn it around this Round 13
KARDINYA v SORRENTO

KARDINYA
M Abonnel, G White, T Leahy, J Terrell
S Novak, B Henley, D Flintoff, R Bates
B Ball, S Perica, T Cocodis, C Vinci

Straight off the bat match of the day status in a very interesting round. It's 3rd playing 4th and both sides have been thereabouts all year so a strong game. Sorrento winning the first game at their home by 18 shots and 7 points and I am thinking Kardinya will be warm favourites to do the same back. The addition of Brad Ball has given them some strength despite the clubs heart breaking 1 shot loss last round to Osborne Park, where Sorrento are coming off a solid 6 shot 6 point win over Doubleview. Hard to split but have to go with the home ground advantage
Kardinya 7-1

OUTS:

The unpredictability of the weekend and we have no teams for this game. Would it make a difference? Not sure, this time of year generally sees not too many changes as club settle on their rinks. I have heard Rossmoyne have changed to play indoors and with the wet weather predicted this may well be the only game that as a result in the PL. It is a game Rossmoyne need to win to hold off Bassendean and Manning at least for another week. With 3 home games to go, I feel they need to win all 3 to remain in the PL, but this is a tough one. Made tougher by the opposition contains Jack East, who played for many years at Rossmyone and would know the surface pretty well. If East can impart some knowledge on the rest of the group then I feel they can win. I feel they can win anyway, a 6 shot win to Osborne Park the first time around will give Rossmoyne some heart, I think another close loss here.
Osborne Park 6-2

DOUBLEVIEW v MANNING

DOUBLEVIEW
R Moyle, B White, L Thorn, T Whitfield
C Slavich, A Wetzler, G Nelson, S Deering

S Knott, B Butler, M Allan, S O'Brien
INS: No changes
OUTS:

Aren't Manning building a few hurdles this season, a loss to Bassendean at home last week and they need to pull their finger out and a potential washout won't do their chances much good at all. They need to play and travel to Doubleview and get the lions share of the points. Doubleview have been my surprise packet this year, I thought the loss of so many good players would harm them and while they havent been as dominant as other years, they are still a very competitive unit. I don't think they will let this one slip and should be too good for Manning.
Doubleview 7-1

BASSENDEAN v CAMBRIDGE

BASSENDEAN
B Manton, A Elmer, R Ellis, M Whitely
S Alden, S Fewster, R Kenyon, D Snelgar
D Nicholls, D Rhodes, A Smith, D Killisch Von Horn
S Davies, L Pike, L McKay, G Stokes
INS: No changes
OUTS:

CAMBRIDGE
C Adams, R Bolton, N Bolton, W Manning
S Rushforth, S Buckley, A Foster, M Bolton
B Nairn, D Jones, L Strahan, D Leeson
C Harris, N Lewis, P Potts, G Allen
INS: No changes
OUTS:

Another team that has thrown a few hurdles in front of them but they seem to have jumped them and they will be dead keen to play this round against 7th placed Cambridge. They sit 8.5 points behind them so a win here and that closes the gap, coupled with a loss to Rossmoyne and they could see themselves out of relegation zone for the first time this year. Cambridge can also can look up, only 9.5 points away from 4th spot, so they have a huge amount to play for. Like the Doubleview game though if enough rain falls then the grass clubs could see a washout this weekend.
The game will also see the 3rd year of the Patterson Cup, a game between the 2 clubs to honour the life of Daniel Patterson. Originally scheduled for the Friday night, this game will now be played on the Saturday afternoon. Round 1 went to the Knights, also in very wet conditions, with Bassendean currently holding the cup, coupled with critical points to both teams, this game is a big one.
Basso of course!

INS: No changes
OUTS:

This game was also scheduled for Friday night and now being played on Saturday. Would have been a nice night to play it and avoid the potential downpour tomorrow. On the surface this game is probably the easiest to predict. South Perth an imposing home ground record and North Beach yet to win away from home this year. North Beach only have 2 home games left as well so if they can pinch an away win from somewhere it would almost ensure them remaining in PL, if they havent already got the required points anyway. Not panic stations for them but an away win would be nice. South Perth with no changes looks a complete especially at home and should be too good here
South Perth 8-0
