    Get em in here... perfect round for me, I have coliban, russet, desiree and some of the exotic Toolangi delight to round out the pack :spud::spud::spud::spud::spud::spud::spud:. Cockies will notch a comfortable win this week

    THEME: The Spud Round
    The great Allan Jeans famously compared footballers to sausages - "You can fry them, grill them, bake them ... but they're still footballers. And while we don't condone the frying, baking or grilling of footballers here in the ORFFA, we do condone the baking of spuds. Especially those fantasy football spuds who score abysmally and cost us our weekly match-up. They definitely deserve a good bake.

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

    No point guessing what's the special on the Bulls Hit Brasserie Menu this weekend; that's right, chicken and chips.

    Cradle Mountain Devils Round 8 team vs Birdsville Battlers

    Out: N Vlastuin (ankle)
    In: D Thomas

    Defenders - D Rich, Z Jones, M Hurley, D Thomas (A Naughton)
    Midfielders - S Pendlebury, J Hopper, J Steele, D Zorko (J Redden)
    Rucks - T Nankervis (T English)
    Forwards – R Marshall, T Lynch, J Gresham, L Breust (H Himmelberg)
    Int: D Zaharakis, D Heppell

    One forced change for Cradle Mountain’s Round 8 home game against the Birdsville Battlers, with 25 year old defender Nick Vlastuin (89 ppg) on the sidelines due to an ankle injury and replaced by the oldest player at CMD, defender Dale Thomas (83) who turns 32 years old during the mid-season break. Thomas is one of eight Devils over 27 years of age in the Round 8 side along with fellow defenders Rich (29 years old/101 points per game) and Hurley (28/82), midfielders Pendlebury (31/106), Zorko (30/93), Zaharakis (29/93) and forwards Lynch (28/87) and Breust (28/80).

    Although Cradle Mountain have plenty of experience there are actually more players under 28 years of age that are averaging at least 95 points per game than the over 27 crew, 4-2 although Pendles remains the top Dog or Devil in this case with 106 ppg and has polled 17 votes in the Les W medal to be equal fifth overall after Round 7. The four Devils under 27 years of age averaging at least 95 ppg are midfielders Hopper (22 years old/101 ppg) Steele (23/99), and Heppell (26 next week/95) along with forward Marshall (23/100). The CMD under 27yo brigade for the Round 8 game is completed by defender Zak Jones (24/90), ruck Toby Nankervis (24/81 and forward Jade Gresham (21/82).

    Some :spud:'s to titivate your appetite. Burton (6), Bailey (-4, but currently E). Rather ruined what might have been a decent contest with the chooks. Still the chicken and chips sold well at the Bulls Hit. Thanks to Foxton Fries for replenishing the spud department in time for Sunday luncheon service. If we cannot do footy well, we can at least eat well.
