Friday, November 18, 2011. www.ntnews.com.au P U B : N T N E W S D A T E : 1 8 -N O V -2 0 1 1 P A G E : 4 6 C O L O R : C M Y K Hoggies will be strengthened by the return from Singapore of sevens specialist Zac Phillips Top four set to do battle RUGBYUNION By IANBUTTERWORTH WEEK four of the Heineken Super 7s tournament at Rugby Park tomorrow features clashes among the top four teams. Second-placed Hot 100 will do battle with the competitions big improver Onesteel, which is clinging to fourth spot. Hot 100 will be down on quantity and quality this weekend with the departure of some players to represent the Mosquitoes at the Gold Coast 7s, and may be at its most vulnerable. A cold, hard Onesteel might find itself breaching the Hot 100 defences through the hard running of Mark Scoles, Billy Burns and Jarmaine Thompson. Another hot match will follow with Bundaberg Rum determined to put in a spirited performance against ladderleader Hogs Breath Cafe. Although Hoggies will be strengthened by the return from Singapore of sevens specialists Josh and Zac Phillips, they too will suffer from the loss of players to representative duties at the Gold Coast. Bundy is beginning to find structures but players such as Eddie Skein, Alex MacDonald, Shane Crowley, Damien McDermid and James Uluivuya will need to step up to engage the opposition in attack and defence. The Schweppes Super 7s tournament gets proceedings underway from 3pm when first-placed Canterbury takes on the Channel 9 heavyweight. Canterbury also meets second-placed Latitude Travel at 4.40pm and this could well be one of the highlight matches of the day. Love after lucky six WILL another Friday night at Winnellie Park result in another win for Jens Love? Thats been the case on the past five occasions, and the Graham Fernstrained speedster is short odds to make it six of the best tonight when she tackles the Sage Contracting Open Dash (312m). The drop back to the sprint trip should not be a drama for Jens Love, but box seven puts her in foreign territory. During this current winning run, Jens Love has not drawn outside box three, meaning she may need a touch of luck. Mercury Morris was much better last time at the 383m trip, but the drop back leaves Wheres Chyna, with a career-best time of 17.99 at 312m, as the biggest threat.
