GRAND FINAL PREVIEW
7pm The Splashers v Greenhills Beavers
The top 2 teams from the regular season rightly won their way through to the final, with the run-and-gun style Splashers, coming up against the Veteran beaver team. The Splashers are not afraid to let it fly from beyond the arc with shooters like Sam Whelan, Bryson Norris and James Guley. They will rely on Matt Shanahan’s size and experience inside coming up against more mature bodies. Greenhills will look to utilise Adam Moore in the post, the former Big V star led to league in points per game this season. Sure to be one that goes down to the wire, make sure you are there Monday to see the best domestic competiton in the northern suburbs!
