This Saturday night sees Hugh McMenamin Court host its first SEABL double header for Season 2012, with the Swinburne Lady Cobras taking on the Ballarat Rush and the Swinburne Cobras taking on the Ballarat Miners.

For the Swinburne Kilsyth Lady Cobras it is their first game of the year, after having to sit back last week with a bye and watch everyone else start their 2012 SEABL campaigns, they are raring to start.

There have been a few changes to the line-up for 2012 from last year, with Peter Gay now at the helm in his first season as Head Coach, Sarah Parsons returns to her home Club after a two year absence, as well as two new additions to the team in playing Assistant Coach Chelsea Burns and WNBL Sydney Flames young gun Kristen Barnes.

Hayley Moffatt, Gemma Kerr, Brooke Nisi-Sumner, Jordyn O’Shea, Rebekah O’Donnell and Emily van Poppel return for another year in Kilsyth colours.

Last week saw Ballarat Rush defeat the Albury Wodonga Bandits, 69-45 after strong second and third quarters. For the Swinburne Lady Cobras to get the win this Saturday night they will need to ensure that they put a stop to Nat Taylor after a 23 point game against the Bandits.

The Swinburne Kilsyth Lady Cobras kick off their 2012 campaign on Hugh McMenamin Court against the Ballarat Rush this Saturday night, tip-off is at 6.15pm.

After a thrilling last quarter and a three point win last week against the Mt Gambier Pioneers, the Swinburne Cobras will be looking to get another win on the board against the Ballarat Miners come Saturday night.

After a fantastic debut for Swinburne Kilsyth Cobras last Sunday including a SEABL Player of the week Award, import Garfield Blair will need to deal with a great of extra deal of attention from the Miners.

Tim Lang returns to the home court after being unavailable last week due to his NBL commitments with the Melbourne Tigers. Lang’s return is a huge bonus for Kilsyth with his experience gained over the summer in the NBL; he shall be a tough man to match up on for the Miners.

Last week saw Ballarat defeat Albury Wodonga 87-73, after both their imports returned home just days before their season opener. New import Kodi Augustus has arrived in Australia for the Miners but will be unable to play pending immigration processing, meaning the ‘All-Australian’ Miners side that took to the floor last Sunday will carry the load again.

The Swinburne Kilsyth Cobras will need to be on the lookout for the Miners point guard Shaun Bruce after he produced a 20 point, three rebound, and seven assist game last week.

The Swinburne Kilsyth Cobras face the Ballarat Miners on Hugh McMenamin Court this Saturday night, tip-off is at 8.15pm.
