Introducing a blatantly copied format. Will be a weekly (if remembered) feature Topic Hutchy Lyon Hanners as captain over Heppell? Back yourself in call. Premo mid for past several years. Other option too risky. Will come good Injured in GF and interrupted pre-season call… Blatant lack of confidence in Heppell to maintain training standards when away … Continue reading Good Call/ Bad Call
The Barbarians are out of touch. They have nothing to show and are being passed by a team that has gone up, down and on the way back up again. Sure they won on the weekend, but they scored in the 1600's! absolute disgrace. With drafting of Maisey Williams too, I do not see this … Continue reading Are the Barbs out of touch?
Whilst its only round 2, there are already seasons on the line. To assure yourself of a finals spot in August, you need to hunt for a final H&A record of 12-6. 2015 - 4th and 5th were both 11-7, separated only by percentage 2016 - 4th spot (Rines), finished the year 12-6 12-6 … Continue reading Game over?
Quick thoughts from the weekend: · Vipers – Premiership hangover or are they hung? Would be disappointed with 3rd lowest score for the round · Jackals – Have they got another gear? Got the W, but rucks and forwards weren’t great · Barbs – Top end talent will win them 5 games alone this year … Continue reading Quick Thoughts from the Weekend
Gators Place: 1st (Last year finished 8th) Predicted Average: 1800 8th to 1st in one season is an incredible call but the Gators look to have the cattle to do it. In the offseason they secured the services of Simpson and Ebert, got the biggest free hit since Montagna with Macrae going forward (kicked … Continue reading 2017 1st Place Prediction – Gators
Vipers Place: 2nd (Last year finished 1st) Predicted Average: 1744 Last year I predicted the Vipers would finish 5th but Jero decided to make moves this league hasn’t seen before and brought in a host of contributing players to get his team into finals and the second UKL premiership. The biggest move was the trade … Continue reading 2017 2nd Place Prediction – Vipers
Jackals Place: 3rd (Last year finished 5th) Predicted Average: 1737 Injuries and suspensions were the Jackal’s worst enemies in 2016. Bennell, Hurley and Ryder missed the entire season. Shiels, Sidebottom and McVeigh also suffered untimely injuries that curtailed the beginning of the Jackal’s season. Similarly, a few Jackals again begin 2017 under injury clouds … Continue reading 2017 3rd Place Prediction – Jackals
Ducks Place: 4th (Last year finished 3rd) Predicted Average: 1724 I’m surprised to see the Ducks this low but the only thing separating 2 - 5th is captain choice really. The Ducks must have migrated this summer as they were non-participants in the trade period and took just the two picks to the main … Continue reading 2017 4th Place Prediction – Ducks
Titans Place: 5th (Last year finished 2nd) Predicted Average: 1721 The Titans no longer boast one of the strongest forward lines in the league and within the space of a year seem to have become one of the worst. The Titans made the wrong call on which of Swan or Roughead to keep and … Continue reading 2017 5th Place Prediction – Titans
