    Apologies for the brevity, but a short turnaround equals a short review. Here 's round 5 in a sentence or two:

    Whitsunday Warriors 1109 def by Mount Beauty Uglies 1131
    Warriors:
    tough loss for TiB but he needed a few others to help Ollie out.
    Uglies: After 3 straight wins, I wonder how many cans deep @HeavyMen is into the celebrations?

    Waikikamoocow Incorrigibles 1075 def Charlies Opening Spelunkers 964
    Cows:
    an ordinary effort by their usual standards but still got the job done.
    Spelunkers: Operation ‘Sir Tanks-a-lot’ is alive and well.

    Birdsville Battlers 1325 def Wineglass Bay Packers 1047
    Battlers:
    A couple of 150’s helped paper over the cracks.
    Packers: Stephenson continues to show plenty and a playing ruck surely makes life easier.

    Nareewillock Nuffers 1092 def by Venus Bay Vultures 1189
    Nuffers:
    Only claiming half their top score hurt. Building, but it’ll take some time.
    Vultures: A long way off last year so far, but a win gets them on the positive side of the ledger.

    Nowhere Else Wanderers 1163 def Larrikin Lagoon Lefties 1041
    Wanderers:
    Got everything from terrible (Aliir) to sublime (Walters), but most importantly - a win.
    Lefties: Nice debut from Hately, but still crying out for a playing ruck.

    Marble Bar Misfits 1343 def Gariwerd Cockatoos 1280
    Misfits:
    No Ward, no worries, as the defending champs just keep ticking along.
    Cockatoos: Can count themselves unlucky to be 1-4 given they’re the sixth highest scoring team.

    Wagga Wagga Wombats 1180 def by Gundagai Grasshoppers 1233
    Wombats:
    A touch unlucky as their best was better and they had the best four players on the park.
    Hoppers: Still the only undefeated team as their superior depth got them home this week.

    Iron Knob Codpieces 1229 def by Foul Bay Chickens 1386
    Knobs:
    I thought the green vest was back after Darling pumped out a 9.
    Chooks: Eddie Betts, what a marvel! Also, Chooks/Geelong/Danger/Kelly etc.

    Lovely Banks Lilacs 1077 def by Cradle Mountain Devils 1157
    Lilacs:
    An average showing from the midfield was costly. Still sitting nicely at 3-2, though.
    Devils: Not up to their recent standards, but the much vaunted midfield did enough to get the win.

      Well done.

      Hot chips have been added to the menu at the Tiki Bar. Something of an economy measure as the Warriors have a deluge of:

      Another 4 figure result and though not a win, we’re off the bottom.
      Fear not @graeme, your pick won’t drift far.

      Loving these write ups of late (eg last three weeks)
      Unless you go better than size 34b & have loving to share you couldn’t get within 50 metres of the can bar up here. Luckily the #1 ticket holder has a cherished reserved pew:)

      Our oop rucks effort was a positive, fortunately the selection committee error didn't cost us a much needed win.
