Hot off an upset win the Mosman Park travel to Doubleview to take on this very strong team. Anthony Williams will make his debut for the View while the Mozzies will go in unchanged.
Doubleview will be fielding their full strength team this week and they didn't really set the house on fire last week with their 2 rin 6 shot win over Sorrento. Look for them to bounce back at home, John Slavich rarely has 2 bad games in a row, look for a strong win from him. I think Doubleview will be convincing winners.

South Perth were dominant last week albeit against an undermanned Safety Bay but they won't get that here, Cambridge coming in with strongest team in years. South Perth get even better, Daniel Brown makes his debut for the club with Neale Griffin unavailable. Cambridge come in unchanged.
Cambridge have lost their last 2 at the venue but did win the 2 prior to that, with a similar surface it really comes down to a man on man battle. They look like they match up fairly evenly on paper so a hard game to predict. I just think the Millers slightly better and at home should see them scrape home. But their won't be much in it.
South Perth 6-2

Both of these teams with losses last week but took it right up to their opponents, Kardy a 5 shot loss while Sorrento's loss was 6. Vinci comes into the Kardinya side with Booth departing, no change for Sorrento.
Wonder which green Kardinya will play their games on this year, the brand new surface only installed a month ago on the lower green or remain on the year old surface they played on last year. The surface itself is the same but with a year more wear I suspect they might stick with the one they made finals with from last year. It won't matter, I think they'll be far too good for the visiting team

A surprise loss for the carry over champs and they don't get an easy one to get on the board either. Both teams with 1 change, Segan Pasalich can't play this week replaced by M Woodward and Blake Butler returns, with Stephen Patterson also not available.
The Saints will be hurting with their loss last week and they would hate to go down in their first 2 games. Like Kardy I wonder what green they will be playing on, it might be as unfamiliar to them as it will be to the visitors. Manning were pretty solid last week, Butler in helps and Ossy Park get weaker with their changes. A difficult game but I will go for an upset of sorts, I think Manning look better on paper but like most games it will be who settles into the contest first.

Safety Bay travel to the glass of North Beach and unlike some other Premier League clubs they will come into the match unsighted at the venue. North Beach with no changes while Safety Bay with the 1 change, Boddy out and Daynes in.
It's a super home ground advantage North Beach have with the wind and the speed of the green, but if any club will know what thats like it will be Safety Bay, who also have fast greens and tricky winds. It's a match up a few people thought would test North Beach, if Safety Bay can't get points here then other clubs may have a long year at the venue. Safety Bay a bit disappointing last week will want to bounce back, but I don't think they will
