    Farewell to the bye rounds and back to business; unfortunately with a weaker than optimal side for our visit to Birdsville and JC's hospitality. Things looked pretty tight until the final game saw Fyfe and Newman excell. New cap Finlayson (82) did what was expected. And some poor performances were able to be glossed over by strong performances from ROB and Dunks.

    It would be nice to get the full squad back and performing. The injury clouds over Menegola, McVeigh, Hall and Jack Ross are starting to dissipate in time for finals. We retained eight place on the ladder. We now play the uglies who, like all the teams below us, have an inferior points for tally. The vicissitudes of the FIXture list mean we might start climbing the ladder with eminently winnable games in the next three rounds before a tough last two home and away games..

    B&F round 12
    5 - Nat Fyfe (147)
    4 - Reilly O'Brien (120)
    3 - Nic Newman (117)
    2 - Josh Dunkley (111)
    1 - Brad Crouch (95)

    Willem Drew (51) got a recall, but might not have done enough to hold his spot..

    We made harder work than we should have done in putting away the Uglies thanks to Sunday turning out to be very poor. However, the stalwarts again provided some starch but not star quality. However, the depth started to come through, with Dion, Ryan and Toby showing some good indicators of form. It was a change not to have to rely on Nat and Brad.

    Our second MSD pick - Kyle Dunkley - was terrific on debut and will add some depth to the midfield this year and some quality going forward. Brother Josh may have to lift to keep his place, hahaha.

    B&F round 13
    5 - Dion Prestia (125)

    "Brother Josh may have to lift to keep his place, hahaha." That's how we ended last week's review. I think it's safe to sat Josh lifted. Some great scores made to look almost second rate as Dunks went on the rampage. How do I tell Josh he is not in my SC side?

    We enjoyed the Packers visit and stayed on at the Bulls Hit to watch the cricket final. How do you get beaten when you score the same number of runs for less wickets lost? Turnover almost reached to level seen after the 2017 ORFFA grand final win.

    Brad Crouch cont (193) continued his fine form but could not get on the honours' board. Nor could the Gov (94), Paps (82) nor Howey (82). Sadly, injuries are starting to take their toll. This week Burto and Toby tweaked hammies and Macca's comeback took a setback, As always the medical staff will take it in their stride. I might be critical of some people at times, but never of the medics.

    B&F round 14
    5 - Josh Dunkley (202)
    4 - Nat Fyfe (154)
    3 - Nic Newman (147)

    Kyle Dunkley (41) went ok, but clearly was the second best Dunkley on the park; watch and learn from your brother.

    The dirty dozen came back with some big grins after their raid on the Lefties Lagoon. Down to 11 men, then Howie was a late in, they tamed the opposition - and then some. Well done guys, we happily drank your health (repeatedly). ROB was outstanding and provided real leadership in Fyfe's absence. It's been a long time in the wilderness, but wonderful to see Hibbo returning to form. Not on the honours' board, but Jeremy Finlayson (98) and Dion Prestia (97) really did get stuck in.

    Two rounds of the H&A season to go and still a glimmer of hope of playing finals. With luck Nat will miss just the one week and Sam Menegola just might return, Boo Parfitt might even get up. Hell, we might even field a full side against New York's finest. There is hope that the club's proud record of being in the eight will be maintained.

    B&F round 15
    5 - Reilly O' Brien (149)
    4 - Brad Crouch (129)
    3 - Josh Dunkley (127)
