The Moss vale team will look to secure two valuable wins against the Sydney Uni Lions at home on Saturday and the Manly Sea Eagles on the road in Manly on Sunday.

Whilst the Magic currently sit in sixth spot on the combined NSW Waratah Youth League Table, this does not necessarily mean they will qualify for the finals series next month.

To qualify for finals the Magic must finish in the top three of their own pool.

The Magic have a 10-5 win/loss record which has them sitting in third spot in Pool A with four regular season games to go.

The Illawarra Hawks are currently leading the pool with a 13-3 record while the Bathurst Goldminers are in second spot with an 11-5 record, having played one more game than the Magic.

However the Liverpool Macarthur Razorbacks are also still in contention in fourth spot with a 9-7 record.

Coach Kev Campbell said he was looking forward to having his entire squad available this weekend for the first time since the May 27 when the Magic defeated the Penrith Panthers at home.

“The Magic are undefeated at home this season where they are 7-0,” he said.

“They are calling on all of their loyal supporters to come along to the game on Saturday and provide a great atmosphere as the boys look to keep their perfect home record in tact,” he said. 

The Mortgage Choice half time shoot out went off at the last home game, but the good news is that it is back again with one lucky fan having the chance to win $500 cash with a successful half way shot.

Tip off will be at 5pm on Saturday afternoon for the Magic v Sydney Uni Lions match at Moss Vale Basketball Stadium. 

The Sunday match at Manly will tip off is at 2pm.
