This is the second time that the Hawks and 36ers will meet this weekend and I am confident that the travelling side can get the job done. The Hawks have managed a few good efforts this season, but they’ve also made a habit of being absolutely towelled on the occasions that they lose and it’s tough imagining them beating the 36ers here. The line looks a very manageable prospect for Adelaide.
Another edition of the Big Blue and we’re set for a thrilled contest between two of the league’s biggest clubs. Sydney have not been beaten through the first four weeks of the competition and will be confident of securing another win over the Victory, who have steadily warmed to the task after a couple of early losses. Given it’s in Sydney, I’m confident the Sky Blues will take it.
There aren’t too many tracks on the calendar where Valterri Bottas can manage to find a distinct advantage over his world champion team mate Lewis Hamilton, but in the 2017 edition of the Abu Dhabi grand prix, Bottas managed to do just that. He took pole by nearly two-tenths of a second and having layed the foundation in qualifying the Finn duly went on with it, claiming his 3rd, and to this point, last win in Formula One. It’s a circuit he clearly enjoys, and with Hamilton in relax mode after securing the driver’s championship, the time is right for Bottas to strike.
