    Birdsville 1367 d Larrikin Lagoon 1348

    Best: Battlers - Treloar 139, T McDonald 124. Lefties - Priddis 196 (yes, 196), Mitchell 128.

    The Skinny: What the hell? How can a team boasting a near double ton from the curly-haired man still lose? Two words: Red Vest. Thanks to the (hopefully) soon to be abolished subs rule, Larrikin Lagoon lose out on points to Suban (36) and Lloyd (54) after both were subbed. Overall however, a top notch game from two of the most improved teams in the league.



    Darraweit Guim 1479 d Powlett Plains 1081

    Best: Dirigibles - Mullet 139, Edddiiieee 134, five others scoring 110+. Packers - Sandi 109, Pearce No. 1 109, Agent Scully 102.

    The Skinny: Darraweit's players click on the same day and fuel a return to the top of the table. Eddie Betts and Michael Walters (112) a dazzling double act up forward. Packers without any luck, and with 3 late withdrawals - including having a player earmarked to replace a late withdrawal also pull out just before game time.



    Cradle Mountain 1322 d Whitsunday 1058

    Best: Devils - Grigg 143, Shiels/Hair Heppell 121. Warriors - Gibson 117, Lobbe 99

    The Skinny: A stunning late game effort from the oft-maligned Shaun Grigg put the cherry on top of the Devils' win over Whitsunday. Seven centuries, with Dustin Fletcher scoring the first post 40yo ton in ORFFA history, helped Cradle Mountain along the way. For the Whits, Sam Gibson played a fine game but without Sloane, Hrovat and Wines the Warriors depth is being tested.



    Charlie's Opening 1310 d Marble Bar 1130

    Best: Spelunkers - Nicholls 114, Thurlow 119, Hansen 106. Misfits - Yeo 146, Rich 122, Steak Knives Laird 101.

    The Skinny: The less celebrated Spelunkers' players had a party at the Misfits' expense, with Nicholls, Thurlow and a returning Hansen leading the way. Jack and Grundy also topped the ton. The Misfits' Yeo did his best impersonation of Atlas, while Rich and Laird again scored well. Hoskin-Elliott and Stanley may well receive recalls next week.



    Foul Bay 1463 d Iron Knob 1394

    Best: Chickens - Roughy 145, Mummy 138, Heater 118 and a few others. Codpieces - Gray 134, the Painted Man 130, The Other Riewoldt 121

    The Skinny: Iron Knob celebrated having a playing ruckman but were unable to overcome a Foul Bay outfit clearly hitting its straps, going down by 69 points in a top-notch encounter. The Chickens overcame Montagna's late withdrawal with six centuries and only one sub-70 score. A late charge from Swan, JRoo and Gray wasn't enough to get the Codpieces home, though Hale's good form in the ruck was clearly a welcome addition.



    Gariwerd 1394 d Mt Beauty 1144

    Best: Cockies - Lids 133, Masten 134, Hurn 119. Uglies - Cotchin 162, Ellis 103, Cyril 100.

    The Skinny: Nasty injuries abounded in this one, with Mt Beauty taking more than its share of hits across the weekend. Nick Riewoldt and Brodie Smith took each other out early, while the Uglies' Christian Salem was also red-vested with injury. Gariwerd enjoyed Deledio's return to form, while Masten continues to produce in a career best year. Mt Beauty saw Leuenberger hit back in the ruck, and its depleted midfield battle hard.



    Wagga Wagga 1241 d Gundagai 911

    Best: Wombats - Bob 120, Lance 119, Prestia 105. Hoppers ­- Neale 107, Curnow/Rocky 91.

    The Skinny: An ugly day at the office for Gundagai, who appropriately needed a 911 call after a series of late withdrawals, injuries and subbings saw it barely top 900. Those who did play tried hard, but were no match for a Wagga outfit enjoying a consistent midfield effort and great games from Murphy up back and Franklin forward.



    Venus Bay 1386 d Lovely Banks 1022

    Best: Vultures - Parker 148, Beams 141, Everitt 104. Lilacs - Scotty T 121, Billy Hartung 121.

    The Skinny: Venus Bay continues to roll, drawing on a consistent effort and two pearlers from Messers Beams and Parker to defeat the injury-ravaged Lilacs. 12 scores of 90+ are a great sign for Venus Bay; clearly the team first philosophy being borne out there. For the Lilacs, two more injuries (Langford, Duncan) added to a growing pile of absences. Billy Hartung's best ever game was however a highlight.



    Waikikamoocow 1157 d Nunawading 924

    Best: Incorribles - Fyfe/God 146, Sauce 130, See, we told you so” Mitchell 128. Nuffers - JPK 122, Bell 88, Broadbent 81.

    The Skinny: Another game blighted by injuries, poor form, vestings and late absences. The Waikiks got home despite playing two short (McGovern and Geary being late withdrawals) thanks to six centuries headlined by a run of the mill 146 from Tripper Fyfe. The Nuffers' players battled hard, but a series of low scores up forward and on the bench was cause for concern. Both teams will look for reinforcements in time for Round 8.

    A two-game gap now separates the top eight from the field, though only points for separates teams 3 to 8.
