The 2015 NWBL Finals Series is a forgotten memory for the 2019 Sureway Roller Hawks but it will serve as a reminder of the tough task ahead for the defending champions.

Brendan Dowler laughs when he hears players describe him as having a calm approach to his role as coach of the Sureway Wollongong Roller Hawks. 

During the 2019 Mini-Cluster the Roller Hawks and the Red Dust Heelers resumed their battle for the Woolkabunning Kiaka Cup.

No opponents, that is, a lack of games between now and the NWBL Finals could be the Sureway Roller Hawks’ biggest stumbling block after the ladder leaders disposed of the West Adelaide Thunder in Round 5.
