Nanjing Night Net

Baldivis: Fifth

Singleton: First

Short story

The White Knights must beat the best side in the competition if they are to keep their season alive. Singleton suffered a loss last week but overall they’ve earned the number one spot as the league’s finest through a bunch of prolific performances this season. It’s a tough task for Baldivis, but look at the bright side; if they manage to beat Singleton, they may head into the finals in terrific form.

Fixture

Settlers Turf, Saturday, 12.15pm

Halls Head v Shoalwater BayLadder position

Halls Head: Eighth

Shoalwater Bay: Third

Short story

It would take a majorscrew up for Shoalwater Bay to miss out on playing finals, and coming up against the eighth-placed side you would expect them to get the job done. But stranger things have happened, and Halls Headare more than capable of taking out an upset win. Shoalwater need form to take into the finals after losing to South Mandurah in round 17, while Halls Head will want to finish their season on a high.

Fixture

Peelwood Turf, Saturday, 12.15pm

Hillman v South MandurahLadder position

Hillman: Ninth

South Mandurah: Sixth

Short story

South Mandurah have bolstered their finals aspirations with three wins from the past three games. They looked unlikely to challenge for a spot when they were beaten by Waroona in round 13, but their season has turned and now they are an outside chance. However, they will need to win and pray for significant losses to Mandurah and Baldivis if they are to pull off the miracle.

Fixture

Stan Twight West Turf, Saturday, 12.15pm

Waroona v PinjarraLadder position

Waroona: Second

Pinjarra: Seventh

Short story

One of the few games that doesn’t have a finals spot riding on it this weekend, this clash is going to be played solely for Pinjarra’s pride and Waroona’s momentum. Waroona have won six of their past seven matches and are one of the stronger favourites for this year’s premiership. They have an explosive batting order and stringent bowlers. But Pinjarra have still been able to claim six wins on the season, so the match should be an interesting one.

Fixture

Waroona Turf, Saturday, 12.15pm

Mandurah v Warnbro SwansLadder position

Mandurah: Fourth

Warnbro: Tenth

Short story

Mandurah’s road to the finals appears considerably easier than that of their Baldivis counterparts. They simplyneed to beat the bottom-feeding Swans and win. Easy, right? Well, not really. The Swans have won two of their past three matches and have looked pretty good at the very end of the season. However, Mandurah battered the top-placed Singleton in their last match and look likely to play finals.

Fixture
