While the Storm are firmly entrenched in the top six, they could still finish as high as third or as low as sixth, so a polished performance is still required to get the best position in the final six.
Joondalup is holding the 40th anniversary of North Perth Cricket Club's (now Joondalup Districts Cricket Club) Premiership Flag winning team. With 10 of the 12 players who played for North Perth in the 1977-78 Grand Final attending, plus the two umpires that stood in the game, it promises to be a great night for our club.

Preview: Perth are teetering on the edge of the top six after falling to Rockingham Mandurah in Round 14, while Mount Lawley pulled off a huge upset over second-placed Willetton. The Demon’s fate is in their own hands; a win guarantees a top six finish, while a loss will mean relying on other results to go their way. Perth will need captain Luke Jury, Dain Moreton and Jonathan Wells to perform strongly with the bat if they are to keep their spot in the top six.

Preview: Subiaco Floreat produced an impressive total with the bat to defeat Scarborough in Round 14, while Midland Guildford lost a close match to Fremantle. The Lions are still a slim chance at making the top six and will need a win and results to go their way to squeeze in. Conversely, Midland Guildford will need a win to avoid the wooden spoon and will look to captain Ashley Mucciarone and Keaton Critchell to them get over the line.

Preview: South Perth lost a topsy-turvy match against Wanneroo in Round 14, while Claremont Nedlands struggled for runs in its loss to Joondalup. With the top six still not settled, both sides will be looking for strong performances to ensure the highest finish. Chris Chellew has been in excellent form for South Perth and will need to produce again against the Tigers talented batting line up. A win would see the Tigers lock up top spot, while a win for South Perth could see them finishing first.
