    Women;
    Only game I think is a shoe in is Townsville with their full roster. Anyone else could win/lose I reckon

      Spartans have benefited from two imports and naturalised player in AJA, now the Rip have the same in Kisha Lee, only their top end talent is better than the Spartans. Rip can definitely get them, with Spartans being a little vulnerable of late.

      Spartans will have rested starters over last few rounds. Rip will lose by 20. Unless Kisha Lee has a marquee type game again. Big game experience and depth of Spartans too much and Becs experience will pump McCracken's finals hopes like Storm vs Broncos last Friday night.

      I dont believe they rested their starters! They had a double header up north with close games and had to play starters over 30min. Last week against Toowoomba same.

      First week of playoffs.

      ** WOMEN **

      Saturday 10th August
      (8) Rip @ (1) Spartans
      Spartans will be eyeing off another chip, but RIP has a stacked starting 5. Spartans depth to just be enough and get them through. Spartans by 8
      (7) Ipswich @ (2) Rocky
      Rocky have had a huge player turnover this year and have done well to finish 2nd overall. However the home court advantage means very little for Rocky women, as the crowd only shows up for the men. Ipswich to cause an upset, win by 12
      (6) Mackay @ (3) Townsville
      Townsville women with a full roster will be too good at home, by 15.
      (5) Logan @ (4) Gold Coast
      Logan will be dirty that they gave away home court for the first round, and will get the win down @ GC. Logan by 6


      ** MEN **

      Saturday 10th August
      (8) Logan @ (1) Caps
      Caps have been rolling this season, and if Cadee is back after a week of Boomers camp he will be in fine form. Caps by 15
      (7) Rip @ (2) Gold Coast
      Gold Coast won't take losing to RIP at home last match up, and will win at home, GC by 11
      (6) Mackay @ (3) Townsville
      Both teams coming off losses to Rocky last round. Townsville missing Anderson will hurt and Mackay could cause an upset here. Tipping the home team, just. Townsville by 3
      (5) Rocky @ (4) Cairns
      Game of the round. Rocky rolled through their last week of games and are looking strong, Cairns have been strong the second half of the season and will continue that. Cairns by 2 in OT

          Lady Spartans form has been poor of late and Rip only lost by 5 to Spartans with Topaea out. Rip with a full team are DANGER. Only thing holding them back is Jay

          RIp women's coach has got to go. All that talent bought in, all that cash spent ... for what? Feeble, directionless performance tonight.

        Women :

        Rip @ Spartans
        Bec has done an amazing job two years two titles with two differenly put together teams and are top of the table once again , Rip has an athletic starting five lee , rocci , paalvast included and are on a bit of a roll this i think is the closest qf but ill roll with spartans in ot i just think big game experience and arj is a big game player will be just a little to much for Rip and their young coach.

        Ippy @ Rocky
        Ippy always there abouts in the Womens but will be pretty dissapointed with seventh, Rocky have rolled through with about twenty players it seems . Two weeks ago i think Rocky win but with their import flying home there is a weakness Davis is a gun maybe the best in the comp Blair has been great of late.Im gonna roll with ippi though i like johnson and i think they are a team that was a little bored and have been waiting for finals Ippi by Ten , even though The rocky coached announced on seven news They are winning the qbl without a doubt i cant see it happebing although credit the guy a couple of championships and good finals runs.

        Mackay @ Townsville
        Meteorettes probably the weakest team in the eight even probably behind The Seahawks but to their credit a couple of big wins at the start of the year against other finalists while Tolo was on board they are here and i wouldnt fully count them out at Townsville, Coville is good and Heidi will have to be at her best against the top competetion.Cant see it happening though Townsville 20 plus Cocks, Bishop , Mccully , Froling, Fowler well coached and great depth to go with the starters I believe even with The spartans succes over the years The Flames are the team to beat this season.

        Logan @ Rollers
        Credit where credit is due well done to Dover a great job to date with this team and their past history , some credit though as well alot of younger players who got to play over the years while times were bot great have had a great oppurtunity to develop add some good players and here they are.Unfortunately i see Logan winning this by 10 to 15 Even though their depth is limited they have some nice talent Reuf will take it to another level come playoffs is top three in the league but will elevate again this week to another level , They have the point position well cored i think Logan apart from Spartans and Townsville are tge team that could win the lot they have alot of natural basketball talent so coach just let em play dont overthink it .

        Mind the players Spelling good Luck to All just opinions by the way.

          Don't know where the Intel come from that Gmrice Davis had returned home. She was in Townsville Saturday with Rocky and there was film on FB of her running. Apparently she has been cleared to play.

          Just to break up the finals chat!

          Would be interesting to get some opinions on the following now that the regular season is finished.

          Looking at the ladder, would the Top 2 menís team in SBL (Wizards & Caps) beat Toowoomba and Gladstone if they had 2 imports?

            Yes Wizards $1.50 to beat Gladstone and Tba with imports.
            $3.50 without.

          Game of the round. Rocky rolled through their last week of games and are looking strong, Cairns have been strong the second half of the season and will continue that. Cairns by 2 in OT
          Cadee is the league MVP and Magnay has been outstanding. Logan scraped in and their key players are out of form. The Thunder will still have nightmares from their last visit to Auchenflower and this one could be all over by half time.

          The RIP are a gritty team but lack depth - once Josh fouls out Gold Coast's veterans and strength in depth will takeover the contest.

          Townsville should have enough to beat a Mackay team that only goes about 6 deep.

          I'm tipping Rocky in the final game. Whilst they would have been most people's picks to take out the top spot pre-season I think they'll come into their own in the playoffs. I've got them making the final.

            Why hate on the Meteors? Just because they have won in the past and now they are back down the pack doesn’t mean you have to give every single local shit? Just respect the local talent in every town.

            Blicavs started this year from the year before who didn’t play at all. Wicks 2 years ago was barley playing, this year he played around 15-20 mins a game, Rasmussen and Cedar will keep playing for another 2,3 years. Mackay will get their locals back Mitchell will be back hopefully next year or the year after “work commitments” and if Harvey comes back they will be strong core local guys once again. Yeah they didn’t win but that’s like every other team who hasn’t won?
            Rockhampton, Mackay, Townsville and cairns are the ONLY teams who have won in the last 15 years. So please don’t disrespect teams who have championship players? Even if they do or don’t play. Still part of the team.

          end not a bad season with the troops they had they will hopefully recruit alot better next year or get some of their locals back and will be back

            Don’t agree with this post, Mackay easily are 7 deep but agree they can bring in some more locals(gamblin and Harvey) they would be a better squad and also have a strong bench

            Not to take anything away from the girls' game but that was followed by GC men also playing (v Rip), but yeah, very good crowd. Congrats to GC for both wins.

            Rocky wouldn't have beaten them anyway - they couldn't even beat an undermanned/depleted Ipswich team. Townsville will give them a run for their money and GC only lost by 8 in the first round.
