Match between last year finalist and semifinalist. First match for them in seasson 2017/2018. Cairns loose their semifinal batlle 2:3 against Perth, who easily win in final series against Illawarra Hawks 3:0. There are no big changes in squads from last seasson. Illawarra has great coach Beveridge on the bench, and i believe this is their main advantage in this match, as away team is a bit stronger, but playing away, so almost tie match, and once again, coach Beveridge will play main role and win this match for Hawks.
Best of luck
