This week we enter round 8 and the tests will become harder and the errors
more costly as the table takes shape.|
Here are my thoughts on this weeks fixtures.
FC v. TIGERS
After saving sponge-bob for at least a week the reef will welcome the wagon
train into cods-vile.
The visitors bounced back in style last week against the plastic taffs and
will be looking to add to Birds eyes woes.
This could be a tough game to call with both getting confidence from decent
wins and the fish fingered hosts will be looking to mussel up and leave the
banjoes shell shocked.
The visitors are much more of a challenge this year and the fiddles will be
on fire and leave the reef clammed up and the banjoes will play the last
rites on sponge-bobs FC reign.

RHINOS v. WARRIORS
The game of the round sees the Blue 'n' Amber welcome the defending champs
who arrive on the back of a good hiding after been eaten by the Wolves.
The hosts will of gained confidence after an improved 2nd half against a
determined Wakey outfit but will be looking for much more to lay down the
gauntlet to the Crustless visitors.
For the visitors they will be determined to show last weeks mauling was a
blip and that they are still the team to beat with the likes of Rat boy
S.Tompkins and his returning brother hoping to add another 2 points to their
The Blue 'n' Amber will be hoping their own charge can begin after the
return of Bailey, Kylie and Cross added weight to the pack last week and
prove their own steel is intact.
A really tough uncompromising battle in prospect but I think its time to
prove we are "thick Skinned" and the real deal in 2011.

SAINTS v. KR
This week the plastic scousers will be more comfortable squatters after
finally getting their 1st home win last week.
For the visitors the task of getting a win doesn't get any easier especially
while their Willie is limp and their general Dobson is injured and
de-registered so the pressure could start to tell on coach Morgan and the FC
side of cods-vile may not be the only trawler looking to net a new coach.
After his tantrum and believing his own hype super brat Eastmond is again
available to aid the strawberry blonde plump kid and co and the coaches
selection could be the strongest indicator yet as to whether we'll see him
in the Red V again.
Try as they might it will take more than a little blue pill and a keen
Willie to get the 2 pts and more woe for the Red Mullets.

REDS v. CRUSADERS
A re-match of the opening weekend and how different the two sides fortunes
have panned out.
For the hosts they've received a couple more good hidings but have gained
some really good wins along the way as they've looked to get their new boys
The plastic South Welshmen arrive yet to win a meaningful fixture since
their entertaining and quality win on day 1 and coach Harris is learning the
hard way that SL isn't as easy as his team made it look in Cardiff.
Both teams have lost players this week for the Reds new signing Phil Bailey
retired without ever appearing and the visitors lost their talisman 6 Witt
A real test of character for the Welsh outfit and even more pressure on
their coach as the Reds inflict their revenge for day 1 humiliation.

GIANTS v. WILDCATS
The hosts showed a real killer instinct last time out and left the Red
mullets and their Willie pointless and limp.
The underdogs of SL are this weeks visitors and JK will be hoping his team
improve their attacking threat after only scoring 1 try last time out
despite huge amounts of possession.
The Giants are starting to look like the contenders they were tipped to be
so thoughts of an upset are very feint and the returning Robinson seems to
have taken the weight of Mono-brow.
The best the Cats can hope for is another respectful performance and look to
pick up points elsewhere as this weeks task is just too Giant.

WOLVES v DRAGONS
The French visit the Wolf pack this week and they arrive after a poor home
result last week so improvement will be essential if they are to test the
current form team of SL.
Morley and co will be buzzing after last weeks destruction of the champions
in the pie-dome and with TS in charge there's no way they'll take the
New coach Robinson will have to come up with something very special to get
the win this week and avoid being bitten by the hosts but I don't think they
have the fire to stop the Wolf pack.
Another team will feel the full force of the Wolf bite this week.

BULLS v. QUINS
The Gratten Pot-Hole welcomes the surprise package this week as the Quins
arrive from down south.
After a morale-boosting win against the Waltons last time out the locals
will be expecting the same and proof from their team that it was no fluke.
Coach Powell will have his team fired up after a poor home loss when they
seemed in control of the game.
The improved crowds at the Landfill will take a nose-dive as the southern
faithful arrive on a Skateboard but the long journey will be worth it as
Potters pub crew revert to type.
