The Round 6 fixture is as follows (teams currently in the 8 in bold):- Rutherglen Fugitives (4-1) vs Port Lincoln Power (3-2) A strong defence has assisted Port Lincoln to 3 wins, however the hosts appear to be red hot favourites in this match. The Fugs lead the H2H 2 nil and the Power will be looking to avenge a tough loss in Round 2 2017 where they scored their highest ever ORFFF score and were still defeated. Cockburn Avengers (4-1) vs Mt Thirsty Boozers (3-2) 4th plays 7th and this match can't come soon enough for the reigning premiers who will be keen to take the 4 points against a side currently sitting higher up the ladder. The H2H is 1 apiece with the Boozers running up a mammoth club record total of 1519 last time they clashed in Round 8, 2017, with the 359 point margin being the respective clubs highest win/loss margins. Neptune Island Noahs (4-1) vs Jan Juc Ducks (2-3) This contest shapes as the match of the round with the Ducks next 3 weeks shaping as a difficult run but with a chance to break into the top 8 theirs for the taking if they can grasp their opportunities. Jan Juc lead the H2H 2-1 having comfortably won both clashes in 2017 including a semi final (Round 21) victory that ended the Noahs premiership defence. Black Swamp 29ers (5-0) vs Wedge Island White Pointers (0-5) The 29ers will be looking to open their H2H account after 2 previous losses against a White Pointers side that languishes in 15th position, with the most recent encounter a 4 point thriller in Round 15, 2017. Useless Loop Virgins (3-2) vs Drouin Dropbears (2-3) The Virgins appear to be top 4 contenders and will need to bring their a-game to defeat a Dropbears outfit that has won their last 2 games. The Virgins are 0 from 3 against the Dropbears in the H2H including the 2016 Preliminary Final, the teams last clashed in Round 14, 2017. Maralinga Atoms (3-2) vs Nangkita Bucks (2-3) With both teams having lost 2 straight this game will definitely bring a change of fortunes for one of them. The H2H is 1 all with Maralinga winning their last clash in Round 15, 2017 by 79 points. Mole Creek Glow-Worms (0-5) vs Walpole Woylies (3-2) The Woylies will be too good for the Glow-Worms who bring a 9 game losing streak into the contest. The H2H is 1 apiece with the Woylies winning in Round 13, 2017 when the teams last clashed. Heard Island Shags (1-4) vs Macquarie Island Whales (1-4) The teams with the worst 2 defences in the comp through 5 rounds clash, with the Whales the favourites to register their 2nd win of 2018. The Whales are 2 from 2 against the Shags, with both victories by triple digits, including Round 4, 2017. In intercomp contests Cockburn @Len hosts Coolgardie from the ORFFU in one of the ORFF* knockout Semi Finals while Rutherglen @tyze1 and Neptune Island @That KI Guy clash in a sudden death qualifier for the ORFF* Champions League which promises to be an epic test of where both teams are at in the 2nd month of the season.
