The matchup between these two teams is nothing short of intriguing and should provide for a top-drawer Qualifying Final.
The Rockets have played themselves into some very good form as of late, with Starling, McVeigh, Johnson and Dowdell clicking well on offence and hustling to stifle their opponents with strong defence. They’ll need to do all of this on Saturday, with Forestville boasting a deadly line-up. Deng has been a force in the league this season, on both ends of the floor, while Mays, De Wit and Harris have shown they have the talent to make up a strong supporting cast. If some of these players can stand up and have big games, the Eagles will go a long way to winning. Also important for both teams will be their inside defence, with both possessing strong offensive weapons down low.
Whichever team can harass the other, block shots and cause turnovers on defence will almost certainly come out with a win. It will be a close game, with Forestville possessing a more potent offence but North Adelaide having a more dangerous defence through the season. The Eagles have the ability to play very well defensively though, and if their offence clicks as well there is no reason they can’t win.
