OUTS:

A couple of must win games for clubs this round and this is the first of them as Kardinya hosts Manning. Kardinya have a good home record against Manning, they didn't play last season but won their 2 prior, but Manning are starting to hit their straps and the genius move of Lewis Grigg to skipper has paid dividends as he is undefeated so far. Manning have won their past 2, Kardinya have dropped their last 3 since winning their opening game. I'm going for Manning, Kardy haven't quite built the fortress at home yet, but it's gonna be a close match.
Manning 6-2

Cambridge will be keen to reverse the win/loss alternating record this year when they travel to Doubleview. History is not on their side with Doubleview winning their past 3 seasons game but it is a different Doubleview team now. Having said that I will be sticking with the View to take this one out. They also have an alternating win/loss record which is due for the win now. A narrow loss to Manning and a gritty win against Sorrento and back at home with history on their side. Again a narrow winning margin but will go for Doubleview
Doubleview 6-2

Rossmoyne took it right up to Osborne Park last week and back at home this week but they have a fierce opponent hell bent on making every post a winner. Sorrento have started the year so well, 3 wins and the narrow loss against Doubleview the only slight. Rossmoyne will have to be playing at 100% to really keep in touch in this game, I have a feeling it might be a blow out but Rossmoyne quite capable of a surprise, I just don't see it happening tomorrow.
Sorrento 8-0

R Brown, K Pickering, S O'Neill, G King
INS: No change
OUTS:

North Beach have another match on their fast home surface and this could be a real test for Osborne Park. I'm going to go for an upset here, I think Cody Packer will be beaten and will see the downfall of his club. Osborne present a better side on paper, and they did win at North Beach last year so they are familiar with the surface and enjoy it, don't know just have a feeling it will be a topsy round and North Beach to win a close game
North Beach 6-2

BASSENDEAN v SOUTH PERTH

R Bresland, T Antonio, R Havercroft, F Anderson
INS: No change
OUTS:

Another team that desperately needs a win is Bassendean and they face a mountain against the top of the table South Perth team, fresh from their fantastic news that they are club of the year for the whole of Australia. I know it's shared this year from Dandenong, but no-one from Dandenong will read this so stuff them! South Perth will be cock-a-hoop and they have a good record at Bassendean to boot. The home side will really need to turn up the heat and get their first win on the board.
Basso of course!
