Well this could get ugly!


Firstly, apologies to all about the lack of write-ups. This has been a most difficult year for everyone.

Blocker v Biz in the first Preliminary Final. The old firm are at it again. Two DuFFLe champions vie head-to-head and only one can move into the 2020 Glenmorangie Nectar d'Or DuFFLe Grand Final. Biz has a full squad to choose from but the Ruck is an issue for the Stars. His backs, mids and forwards are solid without being outstanding.

Blocker has Goldy in the ruck and he will pick up a reliable 17 points. Meh. The WillsieAir backs and forwards will match the Stars but it is in the midfield where Blocker has a slight edge. I think this will be a close game. Blocker to best Biz by 4 points.



In the second Preliminary, The Captain takes on the prodigal Hypen and the Jokers must not underestimate the Heroes. For sure, the Jokers have big Maxy Gorn and the even bigger Charlie Dixon, and although Hypen can't match these big fellas, they can better the Jokers midfield. Having said that, I think Hypen will fall short.

In the Richmond Cup, RaglanMatt will demolish Alvin's Buccaneers. Don't even bother trying, Alvin. You are toast.

Bizkit 2020: Finals Week #3 - Team Selections 1 week 4 days ago #6

If we're to lose another Prelim, it's only fitting that it's against our old rival Blocker. However Merc's done his very best to curse the Aeroplane's by putting the mockers on, claiming every line is better than the Stars.

I can't argue the ruck with the Star's going ruckless too many rounds. However if we do find one to play, maybe our Prelim luck will finally return? Probably not. Good luck Blocker, you shouldn't need it!

Sos Superstars
B: Docherty (blue), Ryan (freo)
M: Z Merrett (drug), Dangerfield (cat), T Adams (pie)
F: Bruest (hawk), M King (saint)
R: Jacobs (gws)
I: Bellchambers (drug), Hopper (gws), J Martin (blue), Walker (crow)
Left out: Elliot (pie), Phillips (drug), Bruce (dog), Aish (freo)

There's a good chance Draper is rested for the Bombers game and I'm not sure which ruckman will replace him. Do I have to name both on my interchange or is it ok to leave Bellchambers there now and say if Phillips is named instead, promote him to the bench? Still weighing up putting one of them in the starting line up as Jacobs will be up against Gawn so not sure on the rules about naming players.
Nathan: When did you get balls?
Simon: I've always had balls you've just never seen them.
Nathan: That's the gayest thing I've ever heard.

Maybe. I liked Jacobs game against Reilly O'Brien despite GWS midfield not turning up to play. Gawn kills around the ground getting to a lot of contests and Mummy can't go with him, I'd play Jacobs to nullify his around the ground marking and link up play.

If I were GWS I would drop them both and let Maxy win all the hit outs.

Just make your best guess, Biz, before we close the thread. If you are wrong, no-one going to call you a cheat. (Except Blocker, of course.)

A few adjustments to the ruck and bench, cover my bases as it's effectively impossible to guess who's in and out of those ruck positions.
