With Round 8 commencing with a 7:50pm bouncedown at the SCG this Friday, your team is to be submitted to this thread by 5:40pm WA time.




Enigmatic Round 8


Straddo is an enigma to me. The Souls sit in the middle of the DuFFLe ladder with a respectable win loss ratio of 4:3, but surely that is an error. It has to be. Let's have a look at Straddo's squad and you'll see what I mean.

In the ruck, the Souls have Stefan Martin. Seriously, his recent notable performances are as frequent as those of Hollywood actor, comedian and banjo-playing Steve Martin. Stefan will give a team 15 ruck points - if you are lucky.

There is a star, however, in the Souls' midfield. Adam Treloar scores thirty-plus points week in, week out. As for the other two midfielders... [tumbleweeds]. Straddo does have some decent forwards: Gary Ablett, Tim Membrey and Jack Petruccelle. There is a guaranteed fifteen-odd points from the selected forwards which most DuFFLe franchises only dream about.

The backline can be chosen from Josh Dunkley, Jared Polec and Luke Dahlhaus - none of whom are in the top eschelon of DuFFLe backmen.

So how the hell has Straddo won more games than lost? An enigma.
