Anyone can contribute to The Roar and have their work featured alongside some of Australia’s most prominent sports journalists.
This is it, ladies and gentlemen. The round robin stage of Gfinity’s CS:GO season comes to a close at the Hoyts Gfinity Esports Arena this afternoon.
There’s still everything to play for too, with one of the four finals spots still up for grabs as well as the coveted first-place finish in what shapes to be a thrilling Week 5.
Brisbane have been desperately unlucky to fall to 0-4 and be ruled out of finals contention, but they can still play spoilers to the Sydneysiders. If the Roar want to play another week, they need to win here and hope their crosstown rival Chiefs succumb to Melbourne Order.
For Perth, it’s simple – win and they finish atop the standings. Avant need an Order win the day’s last match, as well as a victory of their own, if they’re to finish Season 2 as top dogs.
This match may not have the same allure a grand final rematch normally would, but Order would love nothing more to send the Chiefs packing if results elsewhere give them the opportunity to do so.
We’ll have all the action on a live stream right here from 3pm.
