This weekend is the Finnish handball finals, where the Riihimäki Cocks will face off against Helsinki's Dicken. This should be a challenging matchup for both the Cocks and Dicken, as the two rivals have faced each other before.

There is, as always, the question of Cock and Dicken health going into the match. According to the official page for the matchup (and a little help from Google Translate), "Dicken has recently suffered a few openings" due to injury, and the "much narrower" Cocks could use this to their advantage.

The report ultimately concludes that the result of the match will be anyone's guess, and when the Cocks and Dicken "finally release," it will be a sight for all to see. I think the Cocks' website says it best:

Both teams can be found in the ranks of so much experience and a strict routine of places that bunny at least not be anyone to go pöksyyn under any circumstances.

SI had a photographer at the Women's Handball Final Four last weekend, and the images are pretty fantastic.
