Fire­works tipped for Syd­ney Smash

Sunday Territorian - - SPORT -

THE Six­ers and Thun­der play­ers might be the best of mates off the field but when brag­ging rights at stake in the Syd­ney Smash, the gloves come straight off and no-one can re­sist lob­bing a lit­tle grenade into the other camp.

With this sea­son’s first block­buster derby tak­ing place at Spot­less Sta­dium on Christ­mas Eve, both teams are des­per­ate to give their op­po­nents a stuff­ing a day be­fore their hol­i­day feast.

“Ev­ery derby is huge for use, we love get­ting on top of the Six­ers,” Thun­der cap­tain Shane Wat­son said.

“We are def­i­nitely all good mates but once we cross the line we’re very keen to get on the right side of the ledger and Christ­mas Eve won’t be any dif­fer­ent.”

The pre­vi­ous two Syd­ney Smashes have both been last­ball thrillers and Six­ers’ skip­per Moises Hen­riques is ex­pect­ing an­other cliffhange­r.
