Another interesting round which will see multiple ladder changes at the no matter who wins. It's a fascinating Premier League this year that's for sure.

We travel again, this time to Doubleview and another tough game for us to win. Whilst we have had the wood over the View in recent times at our home, at their home they have had the wood over us for a few years now. Whilst a loss for us is not battle stations yet, a win will certainly propel the season for us. For Doubleview, 3 wins in a row got a glitch last week at Cambridge and they will be looking at this game as a chance to build points and potentially get back into the 4 and press for finals. With a hot day comes strong winds and no club feels the wind like Doubleview. With the Masters Pairs being played Sunday I expect the greens will be magnificent, but the wind we will need to get our head around early. I'm looking forward to the game
Bassendean of course

A real pivotal match in the scheme of things, Manning did the job against us last week and always can find a way to win when they were headed three quarters of the way though the game. Osborne Park disapointing against Sorrento, they will look at that game as the one that got away, despite the 14 shot margin it was a game at home they should have won. A chance to address that this week with another game at home against a stronger Manning, and based on last weeks form you would be picking Manning but a week can be a long time, and they would have worked hard this week on the track to address that.
I think Osborne Park will be smarting and I will look for the bounce back this week
Osborne Park 6-2

This was always going to be a strong win to Sorrento but based upon last weeks surprise win away from home, it looks like it might be a bit of a whitewash. Young Pat Murray comes back a married man and Greg Taylor in the side as well this is a full strength Sorrento outfit taking on a full strength Morley side but just lacking some top end talent. With a windy day ensured could play some havoc with the scores but if the home side can track the wind like they should being at home, this will be a good win to Sorrento
Sorrento 8-0

Another really interesting game as the top 2 sides take on each other at South Perth The Millers have only lost once in the past 7 games, 3 for the year but interestingly have lost 2 games at home to Cambridge and Osborne Park. Kardinya also only losing twice in the past 7 games and also interestingly both of those games were away from home but on grass at Bassendean and Doubleview. so who will win this game? both close if not at full strength and for mine it's the potential grand final match. As well as South Perth have done this year a loss coupled with wins to Cambridge and Manning could see the Millers drop to 4th, but a loss to Kardy probably will see them remain on top, dependent on the margin, South Perth may find themselves on top at the end of this round.
It's an intriguing game, and I really believe destiny is with Kardinya this year and I will tip an upset
Kardinya 6-2

Our final game and really no gimme here for either team as well. Speaking with some Cambridge bowlers they are confident of victory, me however not so certain. Warnbro you would think have a great home ground advantage but they have dropped a couple of games to good visiting sides, Osborne Park and South Perth and of course the drawn game against Kardinya, and Cambridge have certainly got a good side. So good that Pieter Harris who has now played a couple of games can't force his way in. He remains a wild card to the club should they make finals. Howver he is not here this game, and on paper Cambridge pack a superior side.
But again I will tip an upset of sorts, I think Warnbro can win a very close contest
Warnbro 6-2
