The SL table is now taking shape and as we enter Round 9 Cas are the surprise
package at the top.|
Here are my thoughts on this weekends games.
FC v. BULLS
This week Sponge-bob and Co. host the Grattan pothole residents in a must win
The visitors secured another surprise win last time out and will be
confident of adding to the woes of the Reef.
The hosts will likely be missing the suspended Stig and won't have the ref to blame
if they Clam up and are out mussled.
Fortunately the hosts should show their Sole and Skate to victory and leave
Potter unable to spell another win but that also means at least another week
with Birds eye at the helm.

WARRIORS v. DRAGONS
After scraping a draw last week when they were outclassed for over an hour
the Pies welcome the team of the last rd to the Pie-Dome.
The Dragons will be hoping to build on their shock win against the much
fancied K9 lovers and show the fire to get another two points.
The Crustys will welcome back Points machine Richards but will be missing
Jeff "I'm not a typical Pie sh#*house honest" Lima after his actions last
This could prove to be a tough test for the current champs on current form
but they'll have too much gravy for garlic boys.

CRUSADERS v. SAINTS
After a morale-boosting win in an awful encounter last week the hosts will
look to build on that with a win against the Red V.
The visitors arrive on the back of a pair of wins at their new squat and
they may have Brat Eastmond back available after his poor discipline and ego
left him suspended for a few weeks.
This will be too big a task for the plastic south welsh outfit even with
their mercurial 6 Witt back in the 17 after a ban.
The KFC inspired scousers will have too much and leave the Wrexham outfit on
bricks for another week.

GIANTS v. WOLVES
The game of the round when two of the fancied teams met at the Galpharm.
The hosts will be hoping to build on recent good results and show that their
last effort against a fancied team was a blip.
Although missing Mason and Fa'alongo they still have a strong squad and will
be confident of being too big for the barking visitors.
The visitors will be hoping to show their bite after a poor effort last week
when the fire of the Dragons was too hot to handle but they are missing
"Diving ,squawking football b#*ch" Briers.
A tough game and one that could go either way but home advantage should be
enough for the Mono-brow and Pug inspired hosts.

KR v. RHINOS
The Blue 'n' Amber travel to the Red half of Cods-vile this week still
wondering how the jammy Pies managed to scrape a point in a game they didn't
The hosts are reeling from a string of poor results and performances and
adding to their woes is the absence of Schnozz Briscoe who has a knee
Their Willie is still limp and without general Dobson to direct the shoal
around the park they are struggling to have an impact in games.
The Rhinos will get their charge back on track after building their
confidence and showing that "form is temporary but class is permanent" last
time out and this time no last 15 jitters.

TIGERS v. REDS
The table topping barn dancers welcome the up and down Reds this week and
they'll be looking to continue their winning form.
The visitors were awful in their last outing at home after showing much more
potential recently so they will arrive in determined mood.
An easy afternoons work and the fiddles will be firing and the high 6's in
abundance because this is a game too far in which the Reds will do well to
make a game of it.

WILDCATS v. QUINS
Two teams desperate for a win meet this week at Belle Vue.
For the Puddy cats they got a belting at the Giants last week whilst the
London visitors lost to the SL pub team at the Pothole.
This is a test for young Powells team now they've had a few defeats and this
is a tough ask as JK is the master of getting the underdog up for games.
Still without a home win will be enough to inspire the cats to a big two
