    The Round of 16 draw sees the 16 winners from Week 2 matched up as they battle it out for a spot in the final 8 as follows but also shown on the TS Leagues and Matchday reporting pages)


    Home/Away/Team Records and Points Scored in 2017
    49 Foul Bay Chickens ORFFA (3-1, 5469) vs Rutherglen Fugitives ORFFF (3-1, 5476) - this promises to be the match of the tournament so far with the winner likely to be favourites for the inaugural title

    50 Staghorn Flat Bulls ORFFU (3-1, 5112) vs Blanchetown Bunyips ORFFU (3-1, 4831) - both teams would be happy with this draw which guarantees at least 1 ORFFU team makes the final 8

    51 Neptune Island Noahs ORFFF (4-0, 5333) vs Gundagai Grasshoppers ORFFA (3-1, 5364) - two young and impressive teams clash in a beauty down at Neptune Island

    52 Drouin Dropbears ORFFF (2-2, 5354) vs Waikikamoocow Incorrigibles ORFFA (3-1, 4595) - Drouin are overwhelming favourites as the ORFFF and ORFFA again battle it out

    53 Mallacoota Magicians ORFFL (4-0, 5411) vs Mount Buggery Disappointments ORFFL (3-1, 5230) - old rivals clash in for the 2nd time in consecutive weeks after Mallacoota defeated the Pointers in ORFFL Round 4 action, in a matchup which is likely to be the highest scoring of the 3 derbies

    54 Groote Eylandt Barracudas ORFFU (2-2, 5173) vs Jan Juc Ducks ORFFF (2-2, 5160) - only 13 points scored separate these teams over the opening 4 rounds, it should be a mouthwatering battle at Groot Eylandt despite both teams currently being mid-table in their own comps

    55 Nuytsland Vikings ORFFU (3-1, 5397) vs Glenrowan Gunslingers ORFFL (2-2, 5255)
    - the FU leads the FL 3-2 and the Vikings are slight faves to stretch that advantage to 4-2

    56 Gariwerd Cockatoos ORFFA (3-1, 5116) vs Whitsunday Warriors ORFFA (2-2, 5069) - @anthak and @TerryinBangkok battle it out in derby #3

    The middle 2 points scored for the teams remaining in the comp are 5230 and 5255, which should help to show which teams have received a tough draw


    Looking ahead to the Quarter Finals the Winner of Match 49 will play the winner of Match 50 and so on and so forth for all future weeks.

    Once the first week is completed I will set up the Round of 32 draw in TS Leagues, but I would like at least one volunteer to update TS Leagues with the Round of 16, Quarter Final, Prelim Final and Grand Final draws in order to share the admin burden – please post below if you can assist.

    That’s it from me, thanks very much for entering, enjoy the comp (where else will you se Ducks and Crocs locked in mortal combat), banter away if you please and may the best and/or luckiest team prevail, cheers TTH

      ... would've been funny if the Lefties entered and got a bye, their opponent would've then got a bye in the 2nd round, such is their fall from grace

      Why? Big Tex loves his laced lobster pies. Got to lift your game BF - the Crows gave over 55,000 the shits without a single laxative in sight. :mad:

      3 from 3, though I apparently would have to sleep in the doghouse should we have one, fortunately the cat's house means I get to sleep in my own bed :)

      Terrible week for the Prospectors. Sooooo many points sitting on the bench :(:(:(
      Congrats @graeme
      Next year.... (I sound like a Hawks supporter :p:p:p)

      Thanks @JPK
      You had a glimpse of why we are called the luckiest club in ORFFA. For some reason opponents make the wrong decisions about who to play onfield.
      Fortunately for me there are so few fit players we do not have to make such choices. ;)

      The Warriors @TerryinBangkok have posted 12/982 with Butler, Motlop and Isaac Smith yet to play to be well in command of the match against the 29ers who are on 10/746 with Mayes, Cutler, Grigg, Duckwood and Puopolo needing to all post commanding scores to give them any hope of staying alive in the comp.

      Pretty even I would think. Low scoring round (and, since you did the hard work to set this up, hope you sneak through).
