After last week’s general bye, the City of Orange Touch Association senior mixed competition resumes on Tuesday night, with a number of bumper match-ups.

None will be as hotly-contested as the division one top-of-the-table clash between Hotsteppers and Jumpin’ Jalapeno Jackrabbits (JJJ) either.

After losing in round the Hotsteppers have scored four victories on the trot, JJJ coming the closest to knocking the now competition leaders off, three weeks ago.

At the other end of the spectrum, Are We Done Yet? goes in search of its first victory in division nine.

Yet to taste victory, Are We Done Yet? will view Tuesday night’s game as a massive opportunity to open its account. The side faces the Muddogs, who have only claimed one win themselves.

On Thursday, the Tune Squad and Parkview Predators will also square-off in a men’s division two first-versus-second blockbuster.

The two sides are separated by just one point on the ladder, the former side winning their first encounter 6-5.

In women’s division three, Wii Not Fit and Marsupials will both be desperate for victory to stay in touch with competition leaders Shockwave.

Both sides trail the leaders by a point, but Shockwave has the bye this week and three guaranteed points as a result.
