Ladies and gentlemen, the semi-finals are upon us!

The Blackheart Bruisers and Mascara Massacre are neck-and-neck on the points table, and will be fighting it out on November 15- both teams are vying to dethrone 2007 winners Dead Wreckoning in the November 29 Grand Final, so these games are not to be missed!

If you've been living under a rock, you may be tortuously unaware that the sport of roller derby has been resurrected- but gone is the spandex, choreography and WWF-style in-fighting that defined derby's last inception- today's brand is all-female and all real, combining fierce athleticism, sex appeal and real action. All the spills, thrills, bruises and bloodshed are real!

The Pirate City Rollers, formed in 2006, have built their league from a meagre fifteen women to one mighty league and three fierce teams- the Blackheart Bruisers, Dead Wreckoning and Mascara Massacre. Their 2007 season was a hit, with every bout filled to capacity with adoring fans, whose screams were as loud as the punk rock music pumping through the speakers.

Donning dynamic uniforms and sassy attitudes, the Pirates skated, pushed and shoved their way to the top, and have been featured in newspapers, magazines and television programmes throughout the country and the world.

The girls have pulled out all the stops for the 2008 'LET THEM EAT SKATE!' season, and now offer fans the chance to get up close and personal with the Pirates in the new on-rink suicide seating- enter at your own risk!

Whether its cheap-as-chips refreshments, Auckland's hottest bands at the after-match function, or the grinding, belting excitement of roller derby you're into, this year the buzz is bigger than ever, so get down to Panmure's Skateland when doors open at 6pm to ensure entry. Tickets are ten bucks for bleacher seats, of 15 for on-rink SUICIDE SEATING! Get up close and personal with your favourite derby girls, and maybe even eat a little skate if you're lucky enough. Enter at your own risk!

Don your favourite team's colours and bring your loudest cheering voice, for now is the time to LET THEM EAT SKATE!

NEXT BOUT: 15 November - Skateland, 60 Mountain Road Panmure – Doors at 6.00pm.

FEATURED BAND: After a bit of derby action, why not grab a beer and check out Tourettes, live at Skateland!
