I suppose actually both teams leave, except they leave at the same time, so it’s like one team. In any case this weekend Roller Derby Bout is going to be big. Thunderdome big!

It’s been exactly three months since the season kicked off with a triple-header bout featuring all three teams. Over three regular season games the two best teams have been found and now Smash Malice will take on Comic Slams in the grand final. And we have a double pass to give away (see below).
Neither team has an immediate advantage. Both have an excellent crop of rookie skaters who are stepping up at the right time. Both have crafty veterans. Both have a few players on the injury list. And most importantly, both teams have played each other (Slams won) and have watched their opponent play. And don’t think they don’t study. All of the games have been filmed so the teams can analyse them and figure out tactics.
I am going on record as saying this is going to be the best bout of the year. Last time Slams won by around 20 points. There is no way that is going to happen this time, Malice will keep it close. But close enough to win?
Do you want to go see this awesome head-to-head match? Let us know in the comments, and you’ll go in the draw for a double pass (we’ll draw it on Friday morning).
