Dusty has destroyed the Barcrawlers once again....
Early doors at Flying Fish Cove Park - a Dusty led Smugglers are 258/3 (86), while the BarCrawlers are still in the rooms.
Dusty hasn't really destroyed the Barcrawlers, has he? The Barcrawlers haven't even turned up to be destroyed yet!
We're cowering in the dis-used Immigration Centre just dreading the call to arms....
A lacklustre start at the Sandpit for both teams as they blow out the cobwebs, with the hometown Sandgropers (3/195/65) leading @bryzza ’s Vikings (2/153/77) by 42 points. More to come...
Down in Gisborne, it's the Grenades 373/6/62.2 absolutely pummelling the Buff who are only currently 75/2/37.5.
In one of the weirder coincidences ever to occur in the ORFFU, Gisborne's Richard Douglas both metaphorically and legitimately took out Serengeti's Zac Merrett in an attempt to make the game more even. Gisborne firmly disputes the claims that a home supporter said "Goodbye sweetheart" to Merrett as he was walking down the race.
Over in Blanchetown the Crocs have kicked off 2018 strongly and are on track for their first ever round 1 win.
The Bunyips have copped a donut from Mountford and will cop another from Tyson tomorrow so 1052 will be their final score, pending scaling.
The Crocs have 270 points to make up coming from 6 players - O McDonald, Libba, Jones, Lycett, Patton and Taranto. A win is within sight.
Midway through the 3rd quarter at Eden Sporting Complex and it's a close game with King Island leading 10/798 to 10/759 (incl. IC for DNPs) but it appears there was some confusion as to who was playing so there's one too many outs in the midfield. Curnow (95) and Castagna (97) have both starred for the Whalers despite being selected as emergencies. Meanwhile for the Monarchs, Goddard (102) and Swallow (104) have been the only players to crack the ton.
Over at the Sandpit Tom Mitchell has left the Sandgropers ball gazing as he had it on a string, collecting 167 points for his efforts. Southern Cross (498/7/71) trail @bryzza ’s Nuytsland (796/8/99) by 298 points albeit with a one man advantage. Unfortunate injuries to Kennedy & Ryder have robbed the home side of some points but the Vikings are putting on a clinic and will score 1400 plus this round.
A dour affair between the late arriving home team in Pearcedale and a flat Bulls outfit.
Staghorn Flat 701/10/10
Looks like it will go the wire an autopick D Simpson late call up could prove the difference...
One way traffic at Christmas Island, where the hosts lead the Barcrawlers, 1077/11(98) to 614/9(68).
At the Dino Dome the Blowflys are out of the blocks early and taken a strong lead at half team.
Blowflys 762/9 (84)
HPD 465/7 (66)
Pakenham being outclassed by the prospectors.
Pakenham 776 with 5 to come.
Coolgardie 1179 with 2 to come
The Barracudas are on 662/8 82.75 to the Armadillos 917/11 82.91
It’s a close one at the paddock as it always is when these two teams meet up @insider
Thanks for the update mate... gonna be a long year!
Go you mighty Prospectors!
Looking for a big day out of L Duggan and B Parfitt
We had a bit of a problem at Friday's lockout, and with both Committee Members unavailable until today, we've been unable to confirm a decision until now.
Groote Eyelandt were trying to substitute C.Guthrie (oop) for Stanley within time but Lockout was activated before the change went thru.
We have decided to allow this change but will not be able to show it in tsLeagues until final scores are posted....
In future, will all coaches try and avoid this situation by making your changes well before Lockout occurs....
Injuries to 4 players and a number of sub-par performances has seen @bryzza ’s visiting Vikings (1427/15/95) spank the Sandgropers (1045/15/69) by 382 points. Match report to follow.
The Barracudas are on 1,147/15 76.5 being defeated by the Armadillos 1,304/15 86.9
A solid performance from @insider team, they got it done across all lines other than burnman Rich.
For the home side, some below par performances especially the disappearing Zorko.
Notable performances for the visitors were Gawn, Gibbs, Wingard and Ryan and for the Cuda's it was Patty Cripps, Lloyd, Berry, Burgoyne and new recruit Riewoldt.
M Gawn (AA) 139
P Cripps (GEB) 130
J Lloyd (GEB) 119
A slow start for the season for both sides but the Monarchs took the win 1187 to 1036. Both sides had an out so we ended up playing 14-a-side. The new players played well for both sides with Castagna and Motlop starring for the Whalers and Goddard and Fisher doing well for the Monarchs. And we also saw the return of the King of King Island Naitanui almost top-scoring for the game. Meanwhile in the ruck, our strategy of playing forwards as rucks has finally paid off with Pedersen winning this round. Next week we play the top placed Nuytsland while King Island take on the P-Dogs.
