The Kings have not got a great record away from home, but this is an away match they should win.

Melbourne United have been in good form, but Jo Lual-Acuil has not travelled to Cairns and is out of this match. This brings the Taipans right in this match as their big man Stephen Zimmerman has been in form.

The Taipans are coming off a win, but a talented United side awaits them and this is a big ask.

United will be favourites for this clash, despite being away from home, but the Taipans will more than likely stick around.
