The Commandos Break their Duck


The end of the DuFFLe round was near
When quite fortuitously
Mikey was freezed
Wingard seized
Gave the Commandos a victory.

The honour of winning pleased and thrilled
A Colonel and his DuFFLe squad
But looking ahead some beer was spilled
And so it was planned, he still command
His troup.

As DuFFLe fights are AFL blights
and nobody rights the pickin'
Where Polly and the Colonel
Both will bicken.

While training and playing gets them perks,
They know their morale won’t droop.
As often they will relax at Merc’s
Before they resume with a bang and a boom
Round six!



On the weekend where Moppy’s Chooks remain the only undefeated team in the competition in their defeat of the plucky El Hombres, one would expect that to be the headline. But no… The Commandos have won! The Commandos have won! Yes, I know, dear reader. We never thought this would happen in the 2021 season. It appears no coincidence that Polly’s boys were left out on the Oosadrome after the game to practise their goal-kicking.

Speaking of Oos, his team had a close fought win over Alvin’s Buccaneers which pushed the Knights up to third spot on the DuFFLe ladder. But the game of the round proved proved to be the Passes high-scoring affair where they inflicted a second loss to Blocker’s Willsie Aeroplane. Just seven points was the difference as both teams showed their premiership credentials.

Straddo’s Souls did enough to close the gap between themselves and the top eight and also throw some doubt on the strength of PK’s squad. Meanwhile, misery continues to follow the Superstars and Piglets as they lost, again, to the Jokers and Ingredients.

  • Buccaneers (143) lost to Knights in Purple Satin (148) at Tampa Bay
  • Souls (140) defeated The Kats (124.5) at Dishani Double Dog Dome
  • Thundering Chooks (141) defeated El Primero (139.5) at Everywhere

You liked that hey? Great stuff if you're a Newfie fishing off the Grand Banks or a Freo supporter celebrating a good win. Makes your blood flow quicker - heaps more fun than turmeric too.

Thanks for the game Biz, carnage with 2 of your players injured early, versus 1 for me.
Luckily I have 4 rucks on my list, as none of my best 3 played.

Dropped Mihocek for Finlayson thinking that he'd struggle at Optus against the OOFTiTs.

This season is fast becoming a train wreck and I don't know if we can salvage it. The Stars might be hoisting the white flag soon.
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.
