Round 14 sees some very interesting and intriguing games, none more so that first versus second, when the Millers and Eagles 🦅 clash at the home of the Eagles.
Kardinya2 versus Hilton and Thornlie against Leeming, also loom as crucial clashes.

Eighth versus ninth in this game at the Kattery, probably to be played on the slower of the two greens, just might suit the Hawks I believe.
The Hawks appear to be at full strength, with a fairly strong back end and a reasonable band of compatible front end bowlers.
But the Kats2 boys put up a great fight last week at South Perth and with the Hunter, Back combination playing well, they just might win. Robbie will be keen to beat his old team mates for sure.
Kardinya 6-2

OUTS:

The Cougars will travel to the port city with the belief that they can win down at Freo and keep there finals aspirations alive.
They possess four fine skips who normally get the best out of the players they have playing with them.
Wooltorton, Cornthwaite and Bartlett all in top Skips in the division, with Billy able to win a game of his own bat when he is on fire.
The Cougars possess some steady up front players too, such as Clancy, Hughes, big Pete Townsend to name just a few.
The Mariners get Starcevich and Lindsay back, but I don’t think the addition of these two players, plus the home ground advantage will be enough.
Kalamunda 6-2

OUTS:

The Western Suburbs boys have been putting up a bit of s fight lately, but it is last place versus fourth after all. So the Kats with the talent laden sixteen, should win again to keep there finals aspirations alive.
The Byrne family plus the likes of Campbell and Sterpini are all galvanising characters, so they just might put up a fight, but the experienced visitors will win again.
Kardinya 6-2

OUTS:

Seventh playing fifth here, with a lot to play for, as both sides have a lot to,play for. The Ravens are desperately trying to avoid the bottom four, a position they find themselves in most years unfortunately. The Lions on the other hand, are battling the odds to try and reach the promotional playoffs, but they have a hard fight on there hands as usual. This game could be the close one of the Round, but I am still not convinced that the Ravens have enough firepower overall. However the home ground advantage just might help, but I say this with no real conviction.
Thornlie 6-2

Game of the Round The Eagles weakened by absent players and the Millers struggling a little of late. First versus second, doesn’t come any better than that, with top spot for the Eagles to wrestle back, if they are good enough.
The presence of Adj Heal certainly strengthens the Eagles immensely, an interesting selection indeed. As it stands now the Millers are a few points in front of the Eagles, come Saturday night, who knows.
The Eagles with the home ground advantage, to just get over the line.
Manning 6-2
