When: 19:10 Local Time | Tuesday 27/12/2016
Where: Sydney, SCG
The home team Sydney Sixers have been poor so far in the tournament and the Scorchers were very good in their only match so this game looks a no brainer with the home team on top. We are very keen on the Scorchers and feel they are one of the teams to beat this season so the $1.70 on offer looks very good value and we expect their quote to shorten.
Tip: Perth Scorchers at $1.70
Value Bet: Perth Scorchers/Adam Voges at $11.00

Jackson Hastings signs NRL deal with Manly
Out of favour Sydney Roosters half Jackson Hastings has signed with Manly on a two year NRL deal.
Hastings, 20, had one year left on his Roosters contract but had fallen out with coach Trent Robinson in 2016 after the emergence of young halves Connor Watson and Ryan Matterson.
The son of Roosters legend Kevin Hastings fell even further down the pecking order for 2017 after the tri-colours signed South Sydney half Luke Keary in the off-season.
Hastings finally signed with Manly after being linked to UK Super League club Warrington and reportedly being knocked back by Melbourne and St George Illawarra.
He played 36 NRL games for the Roosters since making his first grade debut in 2014.
Manly head of football Bob Fulton hoped Hastings would revel away from the spotlight he believed had been turned on him at the Roosters.
“As a junior, he was without peer and being the son of a great player in Kevin Hastings obviously has placed extra pressure on him,” Fulton said in a statement.
“There will be none of that at Manly.
“We consider him to be one of the most outstanding young players in the game and often a change of clubs can bring about the necessary changes needed for Jackson to fulfil the promise he showed throughout his junior career.
“At the age of 20, Jackson’s rugby league career is ahead of him and we want him to be at the Sea Eagles long term.”
Hastings reunited with Manly coach Trent Barrett – his childhood neighbour at Wollongong.
“I’ve known Jackson his whole life, pretty much, and he’s an exceptional player,” Barrett said.
“We’ve watched him since he was a kid and he’s always been a standout coming through the juniors.”
