Round 5 commences Thursday at 5:20pm WA time when St Kilda hosts the underperforming Richmond at Marvel Stadium. Your team needs to be submitted to this thread by 5:10pm WA time on Thursday.



Blocker to Do and not Die


The DuFFLe match of Round 5 looks to be the contest between 391 and Blocker. Both WillsieAir and the G2Gs have lost just the single game and each appear to be one of the powerhouse teams of the 2021 premiership season.

Blocker has the advantage in the ruck division with Pittonet and Flynn whereas 391 can only compete with the 2024 Brownlow medallist Tim English. The Collusions can counter with their midfield and stronger backs, but Blocker has the two best forwards in the DuFFLe and that tips the scales to WillsieAir. WillsieAir to win by 15 points.

In the other games, PK should win a ripper against their well-matched opposition of Straddo’s Souls. Moppy will crush the juice out of MattyT and Polly will make the Commando’s life a misery.

Bizkit still don’t have enough firepower to worry the Captain, but the Buccaneers don’t and they face Oos’s Knights who will not let them get away with anything.

Round 5 could be critical for the Piglets. They started the year so well but have fallen away. This week they are up against the vastly improved Ingredients and you’d think the Piglets would have very furrowed brows.

Here's the thing - I would never name two midfielders from the same team playing on the weekend, or disposal accumulaters more accurately. In my thinking, one would take points off the other.

Blocker has this weekend - but let's face it, he's up at the top and the Hooleys are sinking towards the bottom. So there's got to be something in that.

Straddo 2021: Round 05 - Team Selections 2 months 1 day ago #12

Straddo
Well this has been one of the hardest selection weeks I've ever had. For those unfamiliar with the Souls, we're the Fremantle of the Duffle, usually we struggle to field a whole team, and on occasion I've had to actually use a trade to get 8 players on the ground due to having injury prone and just generally crap players who don't get selected.

Well roll on 2021 and suddenly I've got more than 12 fit players and I'm actually having to make decisions!! Who knew coaching could be so hard.

So onto this week, as I predicted last week going in unchanged was going to be a complete disaster, with the team failing miserably and losing a potential win for the Souls. So this week we've brought out the axe and made some changes, will it work? Only time will tell, all i know is that in most years I'd be happy to have that bench in my team and they could easily score 80 points between them (and knowing my luck they probably will while the rest of the team tanks)

Ruck: O'Brien (Crows)
Mid: Miller (Suns)
Mid: Dangerfield (Cats)
Mid: Gaff (Budgies)
Back: Lyons (Lions)
Back: Haynes(Giants)
Fwd: King (Saints)
Fwd: Larkey (Roos)

Int - Membrey, Langdon, Meek, Cripps

best of luck to all except that FD fella who keeps trying to pinch the best players from everyone elses squad!

*Edit* Apologies FD!! If I knew how to insert a facepalm here I would.

Jolly Jokers also facing an injury battle with 3 LTI's - tried to dump Shuey for Callan Ward but my old bones moved to slowly.

Jokers line-up to take on Biz's Superstars:
B J Howe Col, L Ryan Fre
M: T Mitchell Haw, J Steele StK, E Curnow Car
F: JJ Kennedy WC, J Bruce WB
R: S Martin WB
I/C: S Ross StK, I Rankine GC, L Ryan WC, L Jackson Mel

LTI Shuey, Draper and Ex-SOS Superstar Taylor Adams
Named but unlikely to play R Marshall

Good game Biz.
