Round 1 of season 2 is fast approaching and all 16 clubs are no doubt awaiting AFL team selection hopefully as they look to start the season with a win. The Round 1 fixture with 2016 H&A ladder positions is:- Drouin Dropbears (1st) vs Neptune Island Noahs (2nd) The Grand Final Replay sees the Dropbears seeking to rebound from their 1265-1467 smashing in the big dance. http://tooserious.net/forum/tsLeagues.php?leagueId=14&round=22&year=2016 The Noah's hold a 2-0 record in H-2-H clashes and will be looking to make it 3 straight. Cockburn Avengers (5th) vs Macquarie Island Whales (4th as Chinchilla) Cockburn played Mac Island (Chinchilla) in the Semi Finals (Round 20), and ended their season in losing 1162-1168. http://tooserious.net/forum/tsLeagues.php?leagueId=14&round=20&year=2016 Their previous clash saw the Avengers narrowly get home inspired by Heath Shaw's Round 9 double ton. The match will be a tough initiation for @darren, whose 5 listed rucks stuffed up and booked a boys trip to Bali for March leaving David Astbury as oop 1st Ruck. For the other 6 matches the teams played in Round 9 of 2016 with the victors being those who finished higher on the 2016 ladder. The Round 9 results and thread for 2016 are at http://tooserious.net/forum/tsLeagues.php?leagueId=14&round=9&year=2016 http://tooserious.net/forum/threads/orfff-2016-round-9.89476 Mole Creek Glow-Worms (8th) vs Black Swamp 29ers (3rd) - the 29ers will look to break a club record 3 game losing streak as they defend their bragging rights in the Tassie Tussle. Maralinga Atoms (11th) vs Useless Loop Virgins (7th) - this match will see @Brett Sanders and @YAD69 battle it out in the ORFFF debut for the Maralinga coach. Jan Juc Ducks (6th) vs Dingo Beach Butchers (13th) - @thokash has recruited strategically and his side will pose a formidable challenge for the 3rd and final ORFFF debutant @Dale Duivesteyn. Mt Thirsty Boozers (14th) vs Wedge Island White Pointers (10th) - the Boozers offseason trade frenzy will see almost a brand new lineup run out for Round 1 Rutherglen Fugitives (9th) vs Walpole Woylies (16th) - 2 teams that should improve greatly this season, the home side will be favoured to take the 4 points over their young opponents. Heard Island Shags (15th) vs Port Lincoln Power (12th) - the Power from Port Lincoln will be hard to beat, with the Heard Island team looking to break a 7 game losing streak.

If I remember correctly in 2016 the ORFFF had a partial lockout for Thursday night matches. You should make sure that any Carlton and Richmond players are in their spots before the Thursday night game starts. For the 3 new coaches please post below if you have any questions and no doubt someone will be happy to provide an answer. Good luck all.
