Current Scores:
wimm 1406 vs. Neela 1297
Smoten 1092 vs. Vandrs 1126

Treloar & Lipinski combine for 68 for Smoten which snuffs out the small hope for Vandrs.
Bont’s 42 quarter helps remove 57 of the deficit for Neela - 3 more of those and he wins the match without WHE having to do anything.

Wouldn’t have been this way if a certain someone played friggin’ ball.
:wink:


#1025

Cannot wait for the byes to be over, felt like all of my players underperformed in the four weeks prior!


#1026

Another 65 stripped away from wimmera’s lead, leaving 44 to chase in 2 terms (or one Bont quarter). Should be comfortable barring injury.

Thomas & Cripps fought back that term, but Smoten’s 3 should pull him into the lead within the next term (12 is the lead)


#1027

I have a cardboard cut-out of him, I could send you? You know, if you want to gaze wistfully at it until the next trade period.


#1028

As the Temple need just one point from two players in the last quarter, I reluctantly…reluctantly concede.

Well done.
'spose.


#1029

Allblack way too good this week but another close to 1500 score ends up with a loss, sums up the season to date really - frustrating!


#1030

Glad the byes are done.

#1032

MB vs Stoops is obviously a cracker.
wezza and Jefferson will be good value, and Smote can post a good score on his day.
No offence to Fudge, 'cos I rate him, but he shouldn’t take this game lightly.


#1033

Has anyone gone through the season undefeated before?
I recall CB coming close to it.

Allblack is crushing it this year.


#1034

The GOOD

  • 7 wins in a row, in striking distance of top 4 and games against 12th, 16th, 17th, 18th and 14th to finish the year
  • The new recruits fitted in well: Daniel (135), Hunter (102), Phillips (97), Zaharakis (88)
  • Josh Battle continues his excellent form this year down back
  • JOM back in form, Brad Hill playing well whilst Robbo keeps chugging along up forward
  • Happy to see Marcus Adams finally return from injury and get through a full game in the reserves
  • Would love to get back Lobb, Menegola and Liberatore back before finals and Adams would be nice too

The BAD

  • Can’t see how anyone gets near Allblack, another 1600+ score makes his miles ahead of everyone else, massive reason whilst I put the cue in the rack for this year
  • Backline has holes with having to carry Grimes
  • Will Drew another emergency game
  • My Saints boys in Newnes and Membrey put in stinkers

#1035

PS: Can I LTI Matt De Boer please @Dunlop?


#1036


#1037

H&A yes. Full season no.

First season (2006) - I went undefeated until the GF when Fudge knocked me off.


#1038

The two that have come closest to joining that group are Crazy Bomber & Windy Dill

Others that almost ran the table in H&A:

2008 - Fudge in his premiership year went 17-1 and was undefeated in finals - sole loss was against You Shall Be Smoten (Rd 11)
2011 - Screw Flanders - 17-1 lost to Crazy Bomber (Rd 12), lost to fogdog in the GF
2012 - Crazy Bomber - 17-1 lost to Fudge (Rd 18); bundled out in the prelim by Smoten
2017 - Windy Dill 17-1 lost to Mad Bomber (Rd 18); had another loss to Blummers in the Qualifying Final, but recovered to win the premiership


#1039

Stoops would have beaten 16 out of 17 teams this week. He played the one team he couldn’t beat. Ouch.


#1040

Harsher still if he drops the game against MB in eighth this week.
