Razorbacks pushed to limit

West Sydney heads into next week's NBL finals having been pushed by the Townsville Crocodiles before running out 104-91 winners at the State Sports Centre.

The Razorbacks led 79-76 at three-quarter time in a match Townsville was well in, before fatigue and fouls took their toll.

The win means West Sydney will finish third on the NBL ladder, a position that ensures them a home quarter-final on March 6.

West Sydney coach Gordie McLeod said his team had achieved the goal it had set for itself earlier in the season.

"We've done what we set out to do once we realised we couldn't get to second," McLeod said.

"That was to get third and get the home court thing, so we're moving along, getting things done.

"All year, the guys, I think, have done a fantastic job when we've had some adversity or someone's been down, the rest of the group's been able to lift."

Asked what his thoughts were on a grand final series against cross-town rivals the Kings, McLeod said "you'd have to be better than Nostradamus" to draw that conclusion so early in the piece.

Captain Sam Mackinnon agreed, saying there were "lots of sleeps" to go before that became a reality.

The Razorbacks go to Cairns for their final match of the regular season against the Taipans on Saturday night.
