Round 2 commences this Thursday at 7.20pm at the MCG where the Tiggers host the Magpies. This means your team needs to be submitted to this thread by 4.10pm (WA time) on Thursday.



Round 2
The Redemption Round


Well our annual Redemption Round has come early. With some of the more fancied DuFFLe teams suffering blood noses and our new coaches being blooded into our pugilistic art of fantasy football, Round 2 offers the opportunity to set things straight.

El Primero will want to take down Hypen's Chattas when they visit the Reserve, and MattyT will pull out all the stops. My pseudo-team, the Commandos, will want to muscle those plucky Chooks when Moptop visits the Parade Ground. And more than muscle them, the Commandos will pound the Chooks into Schnitzels.

Blocker sits way, way down towards the bottom of the ladder and this is not normal. Oos's Knights host WillsieAir at the Royalladrome and Oos had better have his defences lined up! FunBeanMan would have learned lots from the Mushrooms' first game. Cookie now knows the DuFFLe nuances so should be tough to beat, but I suspect the Mushrooms will pull a surprise victory for Round 2.

Polly and Straddo need to win and both will be desperate. If the Hooley Dooleys can score a lot more than half a point in his ruck, Polly's team might do enough surprise the Souls at Pickle Park. I'm predicting that 391 will follow the trend of visiting teams winning and give Alvin's Buccaneers a wake-up call. The Collusions to win by twenty which brings me to PK v Slammo. Knight Riders v Slammen's Men. Hmmm... Slammo is a tough nut and will surely pick a stronger midfield next week, but the Riders are not to be sneezed at. Hmmm... Could this be our first draw of the season?

We finish the round with four of the first round's form teams playing each other - The FD's Rashers host Nelson's Lady Hamiltons and Biz's Superstars welcome The Captain's Jokers to STFUppercut. The Rashers look the goods to me and should win a close one. The Superstars v Jokers; this is harder to predict. I thought the Stars went into Round 1 undermanned, but they scored heavily. The Captain has a really well-balanced team that can pick up points on every line and although they should go in as favourites, I'm leaning towards a close win to the Stars.

After a stirring victory in the first round, The Stars are feeling pumped and ready for the next challenge. Who is the next side to face our might?

Oh, CaptDazza? And he has Coniglio? No matter Crouch can match him. Wait, what?! He has Rocky too, fit and running through the midfield?! Oh god, this could get ugly. We are going to need a big improvement from last week to stand a chance here.

An unchanged lineup for the Souls this week, there's plenty of scope for improvement from this lot, so I'm prepared to give them another chance. If it doesn't improve I'm going to have to start reciting lines from RTB press conferences to explain why we're not defined by results...

Yep, I was protesting this revisionist history that sees a premiership coach and world record score holder with a 25% win record in the DuFFle.

Whats that about?

That's just in my malevolent nature to downplay your past successes.

My records only go back to 2013.
