On Sunday on the other side of the State in Morwell the Gippsland Gladiators host the Monash Barbarians with both sides coming off strong victories. This is followed by the Monash Warriors taking on the Berwick Miners in the late game.
Back in Melbourne also on Sunday the Melbourne Uni Royals host the Northern Raiders in Parkville in what could be the match of the round. Both teams have their sights set on the division two crown and this will frame expectations for the year.
