MEN

The Rockets will be looking to bounce back from their devastating 1-point Round 3 loss to Norwood when they go up against another tough opponent in Forestville. Although they lost, North Adelaide played a solid game on both ends of the floor against the Flames, playing a free-flowing offence that produced 21 assists, and maintaining a suffocating defence. Dowdell and Starling were again impressive and the big man combo will need to be a key factor against an Eagles team on fire. Forestville perhaps played the most complete game of any team so far in their huge 82-128 over the Lions, making 60% from deep, 79% from the free-throw line, producing 29 assists on only 10 turnovers and playing stifling defence. Additionally, each player played high-quality basketball and filled the stat sheet. This should be a close one, but if the Eagles can continue playing how they have been, it is hard to see them losing out.
