The Braves (2/0) are sitting on top of the SEABL east conference ladder after being undefeated in their first two games. Last weekend saw Bendigo take on the Mt Gambier Pioneers, the game was a close contest all night but with the pioneers missing some key player the Braves were able to outscore Mt Gambier 26-11 in the final term. Adam Tanner was the MVP finishing the night with 19 points and 4 assists, Tanner will defiantly be someone for Kilsyth to watch out for.
According to Head Coach Grant Wallace the 2010 East Conference Champions will be tough to beat “The Braves have a full returning roster with arguably the best import combination in the competition, Ivan McFarlin and Luke Meyer”, Wallace also believes that the inclusion of Sam Harris will add to the Braves line-up “at 221cm Harris will be an imposing force on the court”.
Kilsyth will still unfortunately be without big man Tim Lang, who still remains in Germany playing off in the German Pro B League grand final with his side Ehingen. The Swinburne Cobras will expect a big effort from their entire list on Sunday and in their second of three games in six days and need to ensure that they don’t drop any games.
The 2010 Semi Final defeat to the Braves will be firmly in Swinburne Kilsyth Cobras mind as they make the road trip to take on Bendigo.
The Swinburne Cobras tip off against Bendigo at 2pm Sunday April 17 in Bendigo Stadium.
