The easiest round to tip ever. Yeah, right. These are the rounds where ORFFA teams are
looking to consolidate their place in the 8. Nobody wants to end up like Port or Freo. A brief
Foul Bay Chickens 1408 def. Whitsunday Warriors 1081
North (Cunnigton 146, Goldstein 131, Ziebell 121) and the a few contributors from the Cats
just tore the Warriors a new one. The Warriors have now failed to have a win coming off the
bye for 9 consecutive seasons.
Cradle Mountain Devils 1377 def. Gundagai Grasshoppers 1247
Rowan Marshall (161) proving to be a very astute pick-up for the Devils. The Hoppers
actually played well but were crippled by an on-field 13 from Brayden Sier.
Lovely Bay Lilacs 1216 def. Gariwerd Cockatoos 1136.
Are the Cockies the Port Adelaide of the ORFFA? Both teams’ rucks went down, but despite
this the Lilacs announced they are officially here. Win of the round. Watch out.
Iron Knob Codpieces 1213 def. Larrikin Lagoon Lefties 986
Shock and awe seems to have some merit – just ask Mike. Macrae (142) huge for the
winners and Jack Darling decided to have a day out. Honorable mention to the Lefties Jy
Simpkin (106) – looks like the future right there.
Wagga Wagga Wombats 1264 def. Venus Bay Vultures 1180
Not a lot in this, but Wagga take the chocolates courtesy of a huge 165 from Lycett in the
ruck, while Venus Bay copped a doughnut on the I/C. This will shake up the battle for
Marble Bar Misfits 1309 def. Wineglass Bay Packers 974
So, who gets to bring the cat in and take out the garbage? Big smacks for Matera, but in the
end it was a case of my Giants are better than your Giants. Two doughnuts on I/C for the
Packers and it must hurt seeing Rory lining up for the opposition. Hopefully peace prevails.
Nowhere Else Wanderers 1194 def, Charlies Opening Spelunkers 1079
A playing ruck high on the shopping list for the Wanderers. Nic Nat a missed opportunity,
otherwise the build is looking good. The Bont (130) brave, but more consistent scores across the board for the Wanderers.
Nareewillock Nuffers 1031 def. by Mount Beauty Uglies 1171
Hartlett, Salem and Dusty all good for the winners, but they need a lift from Sides and
Cotch. Let’s hope big Max can get back soon – good playing rucks are gold in this game. Not one ton for the Nuffers, but a reasonable spread suggests they are building – a playing ruck the priority.
Birdsville Battlers 1200 def. by Waikickamoocow Incorrigibles 1316
Newman, Fyfe, Dunkly, ROB – the list goes on. Blakely (105) finally coming good for the
Battlers? Treloar, Bailey Smith, Witts, Myers and Hipwood could not do much more for the
Chooks vs Lilacs, Hoppers vs Cods and Uglies vs Cows all look juicy next week.
