    Round 14 Date Friday 12.07.2019 – AFL Round 17
    THEME: Late Withdrawal-Doughnut Round
    If Allan Jeans thought footballers were sausages, then it is pretty clear what missing players are. Doughnuts. Lovely, round, doughy doughnuts. And no matter what sort of doughnut that missing player or late withdrawal may be – iced, jam, cinnamon or one of those fancy-schmancy custard filled treats that block important arteries – one thing’s for sure … chomping down on a doughnut in fantasy football carries with it a very bitter taste indeed. May this round bring with it no player doughnuts, but many iced doughnuts - preferably with sprinkles.

    Lovely Banks Lilacs V Whitsunday Warriors
    Iron Knob Codpieces V Cradle Mountain Devils
    Wagga Wagga Wombats V Foul Bay Chickens
    Marble Bar Misfits V Gundagai Grasshoppers
    Nowhere Else Wanderers V Gariwerd Cockatoos
    Nareewillock Nuffers V Larrikin Lagoon Lefties
    Birdsville Battlers V Venus Bay Vultures
    Waikikamoocow Incorrigibles V Wineglass Bay Packers
    Mount Beauty Uglies V Charlies Opening Spelunkers

    The Nuffers will be depending on a strong home ground advantage as they look to spring an upset on a Lefties @That KI Guy team that appears to be superior by 20-50 ppg (depending on whether Archie Smith gets a run) based on 2019 averages.

    The coaching committee was debating the merits of getting the groundstaff to over-water the pitch into a literal bog then parking the bus and playing for a nil all draw. Then we realised that result could put the Spelunkers into 18th position so we may have to revisit that idea and come up with a better one.

    Spelunkers cheering hard for a wash out and therefore 2 points being awarded to both franchises.

    Cradle Mountain Devils Round 14 team

    Out: T Membrey (omitted)
    In: L Breust

    Defenders - D Rich, M Hurley, N Vlastuin, Z Jones (A Keath)
    Midfielders - S Pendlebury, D Zorko, J Hopper, J Steele (C Mayne)
    Rucks – T English (I Soldo)
    Forwards – R Marshall, J Gresham, H Himmelberg, L Breust (T Membrey)
    Int: D Zaharakis, J Redden

    Cradle Mountain have made one change for the game against the Iron Knob Codpieces with forward Luke Breust recalled to play his former side after playing the past two games in the seconds and performing well, Tim Membrey has been omitted despite scoring a respectable 84 points last round. Cradle Mountain are on a club record 11 game winning streak and have an overall record of 12 wins and one loss in 2019 to surpass their previous best of 11 wins in a season set in 2017.

    Hayward's 18 inadequate coverage for Caleb Daniel, Devon Smith or even Matt De Boer
    Brodie's 19 not really excelling as the replacement for Josh Kelly or Callan Ward,

    Get excited kiddies, I am building a big slide :p

    The Round 14 game between the Cradle Mountain Devils and the Iron Knob Codpieces looks set to go down to the wire with the progress score being:

    Hosts, the Iron Knob Codpieces 1127/13 @ 86.7 vs
    Cradle Mountain Devils 1,052/12 @ 87.7

    It is effectively IKC 75 + Jack Macrae + Robbie Gray
    vs CMD Tim English + Daniel Rich + Dayne Zorko

    @jimbowan is wishing that the round lived up to its name, the first half of it anyway, not the second half as the round name is Late Out-Doughnout Round. Amazingly the four IKC emergencies have combined for 488 points comprised of AMT (135) who played for the Devils last season, Brody Mihocek (122), Hunter Clark (120) and Shaun Burgoyne (111), however IKC didn’t have any late outs so none of the four scores have counted to the club’s tally. Only one IKC player in the 15 scored more than 110 - midfielder Ricky Henderson with 126.

    As JC noted in the Round 13 review “Things are ticking along nicely for the Devils who have arrived at 12-1 with minimal fuss.” However the tide might be starting to turn for the Devils who suffered two important in-game injuries to CMD best and fairest winners, the captain Scott Pendlebury who suffered a finger injury but played out the game to score 119 and at this stage be in the Les W medal votes. Key defender Michael Hurly suffered a shoulder injury in the third quarter and took no further part in the game, scoring 32.

    In the first 13 rounds of the season the Devils closest game is 80 points, with a loss by this margin to the Venus Bay Vultures in Round 2 and a win by this margin in Round 5 against the Lovely Bank Lilacs. Whatever the result of this weekends game it looks highly likely that the Devils are going to have their closest game of the season to date against the Iron Knob Codpieces
