    2018 Finals Series

    Gentlemen, we need to arrange our finals series, so that we can post it into the TSL fixture and monitor.
    The finalists are:
    1. Ararat @insider
    2. Southern Cross @eagle_eyed
    3. Christmas Island @DamoH
    4. Groote Eylandt @YAD69
    5. Nuytsland @bryzza
    6. Korumburra @Mick
    7. Serengeti @wrightbrendan
    8. Staghorn Flat @tyze1
    So, as quickly as possible, we need each coach to nominate who they'd like to face off against in week 1 of the finals.

    First up, Ararat @insider please make your selection and let it be known in the post below.

    For the sole reason that i own his draft pick and im filthy he made the finals in the first place, I select the honourable member from Serengeti, Mr @wrightbrendan

    Dear @bryzza

    Would you like to come to my house this weekend and play football? I have a red ball and a yellow ball and a ball with a picture of a Tiger because they are my favourite and best team. I like Dustin Martin, he has pictures on his arms like some of the men my mummy says my daddy might be.

    After the game we can have cookies and cordial (not the red type because my mummy says I'm not very nice when we have the red type and that's why we don't have a cat anymore).

    Your friend

    Damien

    P.s. Please leave your Tom Mitchell and Brodie Grundy action figures at home, they're scary.

    Dear Damien,
    I would love to come over and play with you at your house. Mummy say's I can only play for a few hours as last time I was so tired due to the intense nature of our games. Daddy says I must bring Mitchell and Grundy as they have been protecting me all year, especially from large men with tattoo's who like to shove.

    Buddy's forever

    Bryan

    P.S sorry about your cat

    Ok, that was so much more painful than the losers final, and you mob went of on a much larger tangent... but it was funny, thanks @DamoH and @bryzza

    So, week one of the 2018 ORFFU Finals is:

    Ararat v Serengeti
    Southern Cross v Staghorn Flat
    Christmas Island v Nuytsland
    Groote Eylandt v Korumburra

    Good luck to all teams.

    The Barracudas haven’t got there yet and the Blowflys have made a start 219/3 73

    @Mick Tipu with 5 goals, the locals thought they were still practicing but not they all count :(

    Riewoldt’s 220 is slightly disappointing given that I was low-key rooting for an Ararat Korumburra GF purely from a coaches rivalry perspective

    It’s not over yet! But that bag of 10 does make it a little harder...

    @tyze1 ’s visiting Bulls have hit back to take the lead by 53 points. Huge scores from Lobb (150) and ex-Sandgroper Whitfield (130) have turned the tables on the home team.

    SCS - 847/11/77
    SFB - 900/11/82

    Tomorrow’s matchups sees McVeigh, Cunnington, Wallis & Crozier needing to outscore Salem, Jetta, Hill & Lang by 54 points for Southern Cross to progress to the semis.

    Go ‘Gropers!!!

    The Barracudas are on 859/10 85.9 to the Blowflys 896/9 99.5

    @Mick Ablett has kicked on while JRoo has bagged 10 goals to cover for the injured Stanley for the Cudas.

    Blowflys are in the box seat atm with SDThompson, Gold member, Dunkley, Walters, Hewett & Darcy.

    The Cudas have Lloyd, Corn Boy, the Bont, Waite & Lewis.

    Could be a close finish or it could be a blowout ;)

    The Bulls and Sandgropers have played some corkers over the years, the upset is on the cards as a Sunday shoot out awaits!

    The Sandgropers will regain the lead during the Roos North clash with the Bulls trying and chase down the margin in the final game of the round with Hill & Lang in the West. A nervous day awaits!

    The crowd is being treated to an absolute belter at Flying Fish Cove Park, with the Smugglers slightly in front at 19/30th time, 983/11(89.4) to 702.5/8(87.8).

    Heppell is the stand-out for the home team so far with 137, while Seb Ross’ 152 has been the best for the visitors.

    The Vikings’ much lauded forward line of Heeney, McLean and Petracca is about to go to work, with the Smugglers relying on Blues veterans (always a dangerous spot to be in) Simpson, Kreuzer and Daisy to see them home.

    It’s squeaky bum time @bryzza
