Round 2 preview of Tawa Glen Cafe Thursday Premier League, Rotokare 6pm-10pm

The Frayne Bloor-lead Team 1 is expected to bounce back from their first round loss when they take on Ben Pollard's Team 3.  Team 1 will have the addition of regular member Nicola Irvine making her debut at No.3 against Greg Hareb.  The No.2 match will be between Mike Lace and Chris Jury.

Team 2 will have Jaime Simpson starting again at No.1 when they take on Team 6, led this week by David Geange.  Team 6 lead the competition after round 1 but Team 2 is expected to be triumphant and rack up their 2nd overall win.  Team 2 are unchanged from last week with Jacob Gopperth and Beauden Fleming completing the line-up but Team 6 will be without Ajeet Rai, replaced by a player off the fill-in list.  David Geange and David Lace step up to fill the gap left by Rai.

2nd-placed Team 5, led by Jordan Fleming, is favoured to win their tie against Graeme Mitchell's Team 4.  Fleming's team of Andrew Powell and Nicole Koch showed enough form last week, to show that they will be up to standard against Mitchell, Brady Simpson and a substitute player.
