Southern Bay Cyclones took advantage of the bye week to recharge the batteries after 14 competition rounds, and to recover from any niggling injuries.
The team continues to train well, endeavouring to further enhance their game plan with a particular focus on getting opposition teams to commit to the breakdown, therefore setting a good platform from which to attack.
As the competition enters the third round, Cyclones are in second spot in the ladder but their nearest opponent GPS has a game in hand which will mean that the second round game against this team will be vital for the Cyclones, with a win enabling them to finish in the top two.
The battle for fourth place, and therefore a semi-final berth will be keenly fought out by three teams from Pine Rivers, University and Wests.
Success so far this season has been based on not only the very high skill level shown by individual players and groups, but the fact that leadership among these players has seen many individuals step up to the plate and accept responsibility for action and outcome at particular times during training and matches.
