Round 11: It was the best of times... it was the worst of times

Post by Actionman on Fri May 23, 2014 2:29 am

It was an origin bye round.

I forgot how ridiculous these rounds are.... I'd love to get all bravado about how I'm gonna waste the Zoomorph, but I'm not convinced I'll make double figures.

The Zooms backline is looking very strong, my hope is to overwhelm them in the forwards and then for Pat Richards to put on a big show...

In other games - everyone else has shit teams too!

Its 13 and a kicker plays 9 this week in the battle with the Merks. If they dont get up this week it will be a nomination for choke of the year.

In other news Im in sydney next wednesday to watch the game and hopefully a bit of biffo. Will be wearing the number 2's

If #1 on the table loses to #9 on the table, THAT is a choke that Michael Hutchence would be proud of. I'm just hoping my plucky battlers can keep the near inevitable loss respectable.

I'm just surprised Timmah remembered to update his squad. Good on ya son.

Now to wipe the floor with you, Hodkinson or not.

Looking forward to SJ tearing up the drags, so long as his ball ache doesn't sideline him. As mentioned it's a forwards vs. backs battle but hopefully Luke can make an early comeback and even the ledger a little. Zooms a chance of jumping up to third place this week as top points scorer in the comp. Just need the OA to beat the Jaffs and the KK to beat the Hipsters... hrrrm...

I've got about four players this week, but hopeful that I'll only need Maloney and Sammy B

Fancy my chances against the Jaffs this week. When you have a crap team they tend to not get picked for Origin.

GO THE BLUES!

Thanks for finally turning up SBW, pity it took half a season

Thanks as well to whoever dropped Mitch Brown, he's been useful

Hey Andy Griffin. You should play Vidot in the back row. Seriously. At least for SoO.

Hey Andy Griffin, you should play Ben Barba in reserve grade, at least then I wouldn't feel obligated to pick him every week.

watch Barba, he never makes kick returns anymore - he always passes to one of his wingers - that was his thing, returning kick-offs against an unset line and scoring 80m + tries like they were going out of fashion.

I got all excited SJ wasnt kicking, but then I realised somehow you have 2 kickers in an Origin bye week, that's just unfair.

Paul Carter looks like he stepped up, but I can see why Tim lost faith with Douglas...

Speaking of waking up, Adam Blair with 44 tackles. I always knew that Woods fulla was a greedy prick.

Still advantage Timmah thanks to the first half hat trick to Coaltrain. In a fucking bye round...

Ethan Lowe and Bunty also kicking. Alas I will have the goalkicker for the lowest scoring team in the NRL kicking for the Zooms.

Well I'm pretty happy with the boys performance - a very solid score from a 9 man team - I don't count Barba anymore.

Zooms and their endless back up kickers too strong in the end, but the squad is starting to shape up.

Bugger. Arona was everywhere, Tractors miss the chance to get back on top.

Great week for the Hipsters, I love you Sam and James!
