Well here we go Round 12 and what a group of fixtures we have this week. Huge ramifications for most games this week where could see teams leapfrog each other or create further gaps.
1st v 5th, 3rd v 4th, 8th v 9th 6th v 7th all important games and with Vaccination requirements changed during the week, we should see most sides at full strength in what promises to be an exciting round of games.

DOUBLEVIEW v MANNING Friday night

J Slavich, S Scott, R Haring, L Thorn
vs D Trewhella, D Downey, P Ker, M Walker
C Slavich, A Williams, R Bates, A Wetzler

MANNING
INS: S Patterson
OUTS: M Ellis

1st v 5th we see Doubleview take on Manning under lights at the home of the View on Friday night.
Both teams coming off impressive wins last week, for Doubleview a chance to consolidate their position at the top of the ladder, whilst for Manning an opportunity to stay in touch with the top 4 with a win while a loss could potentially see them drop further down the ladder.
If past history between these 2 sides is anything to go by then this promises to be a close result either way and with so much to play for this game could come down to who plays the big shots at the right time.
You could make an argument t here for both sides, but Doubleview at home have only lost 1 game this year and I think their recent form will get them over the line.
Doubleview 6-2

Perhaps on paper the easiest game to predict this week as we see 2nd place Cambridge host 10th place Safety Bay.
Cambridge coming off consecutive losses will no doubt come out firing and will look to put this game away early.
For Safety Bay, after coming off their first win of the season, they will be confident however playing Cambridge away is a daunting assignment and I think they may struggle to keep themselves in this game, especially if Cambridge charge out of the blocks.
Cambridge 7-1

Another huge game as we see 4th place South Perth hosting 3rd place Sorrento.
South Perth coming off an impressive away win last week at Cambridge will be full of confidence as that win now sees them in the finals position and they will look to continue that winning form and consolidate their position.
For Sorrento a comfortable win at home last week, as they continue to keep their position in the tip 4 as they have all year, this will be a huge game for them away against an in form South Perth. Playing on the surface won't bother them as they have an away win earlier in the season at Cambridge, and they are playing with a lot of belief, however South Perth at home I feel will be too strong and they will get the big end of the points.
South Perth 7-1

KARDINYA v MOSMAN PARK

KARDINYA
T Krajancic, G White, D Golem, T Cocodis
S Novak, B Henley, T Leahy, C Booth
D Radford, C Stokes, S Vinci, M Holt
D Rankin, D Comrie, J Rochford, S West
INS: J Rochford
OUTS: C Vinci

MOSMAN PARK
T Southern, J Barry, J Adams, W Tan
M Cranswick, C Hoffman, A Gryta, M Robertson
D Marsland, S Swanson, D Adams, A Daley
A Southern, T Cranswick, S Anning, M Van Bemmel
INS: D Adams
OUTS: T Massang

8th place Kardinya host 9th place Mosman Park in a game that has a lot riding on it. With only 1 point separating the two sides, for the lower of this game 9th place beckons and creating an aggregate gap between 8th and 9th.
Both sides coming off losses last week, although recent codm suggests that Kardinya are playing better at the moment and coupled with playing at home I think they will get the job done and come away with the major points from the game.
Kardinya 7-1

OSBORNE PARK v NORTH BEACH

OSBORNE PARK
S Loftus, N Stevens, M Dewson, A Pasalich
C Packer, C Biddle, M Rollings, I Lilburne
J East, T Weir, R Lawrence, S Pasalich
R Brown, K Pickering, E Martin, G King
INS: C Biddle
OUTS: M Pasalich

NORTH BEACH
M Sweeney, M Sear, G Crosthwaite, W Farrant
C Margin, G Devenish, R Aitken, J Clayton
M Douthie, P Walker, M McConnell, L Mola
J McGinlay, B Gillingham, S Richards, J Carlsen
INS: W Farfrant
OUTS: G Yabuka

7th place Osborne Park hosting 6th place North Beach in another crucial match up will seenfor the winner a chance to stay in touch with the top four whilst for the loser they will almost sit in no man's land where they will find it difficult to climb up the ladder while being just far enough ahead to avoid relegation.
Osborne Park have shown a bit recently, and while there were beaten last week will still be playing with confidence.
For North Beach the away from home bug got them again against bottom place Safety Bay and with this being another away game you can't tip North Beach with alot of confidence.
Osborne Park for me will be too strong playing on their own patch of turf.
Osborne Park 7-1
