The match of the round would be the Thunder and Braves going head-to-head with the undefeated Thunder hoping to remain in fine form with victory over Bendigo who are two wins from three games so far this season.

In the other pool, Waverley and Melbourne will attempt to win their second games of the season, while Geelong Supercats can maintain their undefeated start with a win over Casey Cavaliers – who are yet to collect the full points. Bulleen Boomers and Eltham Wildcats are the other sides yet to lose and could make it four wins on the trot when they take on Hawthorn Magic and Kilsyth Cobras. Meanwhile, Sunbury Jets were gallant last week and will be keen to capitalise against a strong Pakenham Warriors outfit.
