    Round 4 – AFL Round 4
    Date: Thursday 8th April 2021
    THEME - Mark Seaby Memorial Round


    Draft SNAFUs are fun. Choosing ineligible players, making picks in the wrong order ... all part of the great gigantic fun ride that is the ORFFA. The long-retired Mark Seaby remains immortalised thanks to such a draft SNAFU in our inaugural ORFFA mega-draft.

    As always, the round named after our favourite draft SNAFU sees Foul Bay take on Birdsville for the draft rights to Mark Seaby's children, his children's children, and those children's children, etc.

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

    Not sure if classes as a SNAFU but the Lefties wisely chose Archie Smith with a first rounder. Not convinced he even played a game for us.
    Now I think of it, there’s probably enough of these comical Lefty selections to write a novel.

    I cannot recall having a draft SNAFU, but I do recall drafting more than my fair share of :spud::spud::spud: . In fact, this year I planted some agrias that had gone to seed in the hope that the real thing would replace poor draft choices.

    Let's face it, a lot of our choices are based on the raw talent we have seen in the lead up to the season. What we have no control over is the teams they are drafted to and the coaches they get. Charlie Constable is a case in point, Cooper and Dylan Stephens are others. MSD is the season for planting spuds.

    Looks like the cows to take to the field against Nowhere Else will be:
    D - Bailey Wiliams, Jeremy McGovern, Michael Hibberd, Harry Morrison (Nik Cox)
    M - Tom Mitchell, Nat Fyfe, Brandan Parfitt, Brad Crouch (Mitch Robinson)
    R -Reilly O'Brien
    F - Josh Dunkley, Zac Bailey, Tom Papley, Orazio Fantasia (Jeremy Finlayson)
    I/C - Jack Ross, Sam Menegola (Ryan Burton)

    We welcome back inaugural draftee Hibbo, move Burto to the Interchange as an emergency and drop Dan Howe. Bold denotes played already. Slowly starting to get back to a full strength side (touch wood).
