Vlad here to give you a preview of this week’s action.
Legacy v. Sharks
The new and improved Legacy will aim to avoid the jaws of the Sharks in the early 6pm game. The teams have split their 2018 home-and-away series. Legacy can leapfrog the Sharks in the table with a win; Sharks win and they swim up the tables, gaining a much needed cushion over the hungry Legacy squad.
Rebels v. Scorpions
With the Top Dogs breathing down their necks, the Scorpions are not by any means comfortable at the top of the league table. They will seek to unleash the ‘Scorpion King’ against the Rebels in the other 6pm match. While the teams have split their 2018 series, those were two very different squads at the time. When asked about Rebels’ strategy for the Scorpions game, Reza noted: “We will get a big boot and will squash them like a bug!”
Orange Crush v. Bandits
In both of the previous two meetings between these two teams, the game was decided by the narrowest of a margin. It may be a defensive chess-game, or it may turn into a blowout affair. Viewers should be reminded that unlike the low-scoring Super Bowl match over the weekend, this game will not offer a half-time show. Fans of Prem Chattani’s rendition of Despacito will have to tune in another time.
Top Dogs v. Titans
The final match of the evening will feature the Top Dogs facing off against the Titans. Top Dogs’ crafty offence will put the Titans’ stingy defense to the test. Having been shut out the last two games, can these Titans create their own ‘Music City Miracle’ and upset the high-flying ‘Dogs?
