The Mossies still sit comfortably atop the ladder, with their closest rival in North Beach1 now second, but some fourteen points behind. Both of these teams play away this week, with third placed Wanneroo at home, so things could tighten up a little after Saturday's results are in, but I don't think so.
Round thirteen it is this week, with a fairly predictable lot of fixtures to be played, by the looks of it.

The Storm now running out of chances to avoid automatic relegation, so this week could realistically be there very last opportunity to make a move up the ladder.
The Kats have been very good lately, winning over the previously second placed team in Wanneroo last week.
The Storm have only won twice this year, and are a massive -198 shot difference as well.
Kats to win comfortably.
Kardinya. 6-2

David versus Goliath here I believe, although the Blue boys were very competitive last week against Warwick. While the Mossies were not overly impressive at home against Stirling either.
But I would think that the Mossies would be keen to keep on winning, so as not to give the Blues and the Roos any chance of catching them.
I would predict a very comfortable win to the visitors, especially now at near full strength, with Paul Walker returning.
Mosman Park. 7-1

The visiting Blue boys seem to be hitting their straps at the right end of the season, so that could mean trouble for the resurgent Saints sixteen.
The problem for the home side is that they have trouble fielding the same side every week, due to player unavailability or promotion to the top side.
But regardless of any of that, I am predicting another win to the visitors from just down the road.
They have four good skips and a big sprinkling of quality players in each rink to help build good ends.
The Saints also have some quality players and skips, unfortunately they lose two skips in Wier and Ryan Brown this week, but regain Carter.
North Beach1. 7-1

South versus North in the battle of these fierce rivals, who will all be out to prove just who are the better bowlers. The first game at Gwelup/Stirling was hotly contested with the home side scraping over the line by four shots only. There were two draws that day, one two shot win and the other game saw the Marovic rink prevail by six over Silich.
Both teams are still in the bottom four at the moment, so that is even more incentive to gain the major spoils.
I think the home ground advantage will prevail again, so that is who I am tipping.
Marovic versus Nadilo would be a good battle to witness
Spearwood. 7-1

The Roos experiment with Reg Humphreyson skipping didn't work last week, but he is a proud and accomplished bowler, so, if given bowls in the head I am sure he will atone for last weeks hiccup.
The whole Wanneroo sixteen will be keen to get back on the winning track again, and they should win this clash at home.
Not sure what has happened in the last two games, but I reckon they can put that behind them.
On the other side of the fence sit the Warwick guys though, who have surprised everyone this year, with their grit, determination, and skill on the green.
Wanneroo for me in this game though.
Wanneroo. 7-1
