Double header as SA Super League resumes
The 2020 SA Super League season resumes this week with a double header being held across two different venues.
Matches will be played at both Salisbury and Holdfast Bay, with rounds six and seven being completed to wrap up the minor round.
The Raiders find themselves at the top of the league table, one point ahead of the Western Rogues.
The Central Chargers and Northern Knights are both still well and truly in the running for a top two spot, as they find themselves in third and fourth respectively.
The South Eastern Spartans will be hoping to sneak into the top four, as they currently sit nine points behind the Knights, while the Blazers are a further three points back.
The seventh placed Mallee Pirates and eighth placed Heysen Comets will be looking to cause some headaches for the top ranked teams in the final two rounds.
The match-ups for the first week of the finals will be officially decided at the conclusion of all of Friday night’s matches.

Bowls SA Operations Manager Matthew Northcott said it was pleasing to resume the SA Super League season.
“The first five rounds saw some exciting and unpredictable results, so it is great to be getting the teams back out there,” he said.
“It is going to a big night with the double header this week, so it is a great chance for spectators to get out and watch some top-quality bowls being played.
“We appreciate the support from all the teams and players over the past few weeks, and we are looking forward to seeing them get back out on the greens and showing their skills.”
