    "I never doubted the boys for a second" were the confident words used by coach Homer Jay of the Dazzling Pigeons to describe his teams first up 36 to nil victory over the Drunken Monkeys. "when the opposition play like intoxicated primates you expect to win, frankly I think the scoreline flattered them" he added.

    With no injury concerns coach Jay has named an unchanged side(except fullback Foley has been punted for new buy Wade Mckinnon) for the round 2 clash against the Prahran Pyromaniacs at your mums house

    1 Wade Mckinnon
    2 Jason Moody
    3 Ben Smith
    4 Nigel Vagana
    5 Wes Naiqama
    6 Sione Faumina
    7 James Aubusson
    8 Steve Prce (c)
    9 Tony Caine
    10 Ruben Wiki
    11 Michael Luck
    12 Luke Swain
    13 Luke Bailey

    14 Keith Lulia
    15 Clint Halden
    16 Shane Rigon
    17 Bronson Harrison

    When quizzed about his teams chances in their 1st away game of the season coach Jay stated "Whenever my teams been at your mums house before we have allways done the business and I see no reason why this cant continue this weekend"

    The Queensland Pirates have announced a relatively unchanged line-up with just the one addition to the squad for their second round match up with the Grim Reapers at The Infernal Realm. With Shane Tronc being cut from the side, Michael Monaghan is being moved to the bench and Matt Hilder is coming out of reserves to fill the hooking position.

    After taking their first round match in style coach fLIP said he doesn't want the team to get too far ahead of themselves. "I've had a word with the boys, I don't want them to get too far ahead of themselves. You gotta take each week as it comes and think no further than the next game; and that all we're doing. We've played tougher opposition than the Reapers before but that's not saying it won't be a hard game... but we'll be ready for whatever they throw at us."

    The side to take on the Reapers this weekend is:

    1. Karmichael Hunt
    2. Luke Covell (k)
    3. Israel Folau
    4. Brent Tate
    5. Jaryd Hayne
    6. Adam Dykes
    7. Cooper Cronk (c)
    8. Brent Kite
    9. Matt Hilder
    10. Mark O'Meley
    11. Anthony Tupou
    12. Greg Bird
    13. Daniel Wagon

    14. Jarrod Mullen
    15. Joel Monaghan

    Coach Fluffy says that there will be no changes to the squad this week after the club had spent all its money upgrading the lights leaving nothing to pay the bill for the statistics from last week. Due to PL playing away he is unaware of how the players faired and is not willing to risk bringing up untried players such is the brookvale tradition.Checking the media reports from VRL both Mark Gasnier and Brett Stewart are free from injury and will be availble to play this week however a strong game from Peter Wallace seems him keep his spot. Coach Fluffy was impressed saying "Young Pete has his finger in everything" and was very impressed. Wallace, who was seen leaving with a cheerleader in each arm said "im happy with my coaches reaction and and want to give more of the same this week. I hope to play hard and push deep into the opposition territory".

    Friday on my minds Sloths team for round 2:

    1. Brett Stewart
    2. Trent Cutler
    3. Luke MacDougall
    4. Ashley Graham
    5. Neil Sweeney
    6. Peter Wallace
    7. Todd Carney l
    13. Todd Lowrie
    12. Kris Kahler
    11. Matt Bickerstaff
    10. Reece Williams
    9. Corey Hughes
    8. Craig Stapleton
    14. James McManus
    15. Beau Scott
    16. Chris Beattie
    17. Ben Galea

    ****Pyros Burn off Dead Wood****

    Prahran Pyros coach Samuel L Jackson has cut some under-performing players from his squad in an effort to continue the winning form in the Pyros camp. Speaking prior to boarding the plane home after last week's game, an angry Jackson made the tough decision to cut players, or "snakes", as he referred to them.

    "Get those mother-farking snakes off the mother-farking plane!!!!" he demanded.

    After liking the look of Craig Fitzgibbon, the Pyros have done a straight swap with Mat Rogers.

    "At least this goalkicker might actually be selected as his team's kicker" coach Jackson said.

    Jason King stands down after a strong performance, having proven a point to whining silvertails commentators with a strong try scoring showing.

    Meanwhile coach Jackson appeared unconcerned about Steve Menzies being out injured for this week's home game at your mum's house.

    "There will be plenty of pulled groins and beaver at your mum's house this week, whether Steve Menzies is there or not" he said.

    Pyros squad

    1. Anthony Minichiello
    2. Eric Grothe
    3. Matt Cooper
    4. Willie Tonga
    5. Matthew Utai
    6. Ben Hornby
    7. Craig Gower
    13. Braith Anasta
    12. Andrew Ryan
    11. Craig Fitzgibbon
    10. Steve Simpson
    9. Danny Buderus (c)
    8. Joel Clinton

    14. Wade McKinnon
    15. Brett Kimmorley
    16. Sam Thaiday
    17. Craig Wing

    Thank you, I'll be here all week. Try the veal.

    Darren Lockyer and Andrew Johns have been added to the growing list of injured stars out for the Reapers. Matt Geyer has been handed the captaincy, Paul Bowman and George Carmont get a run after missing out last week.

    The loss of Johns and his goalkicking early on in the game last week almost certainly cost the Reapers 2 competition points.

    Coach Bender has not been at training all week, when contacted he said "being a coach isn't easy, if you do too much, people get dependent on you. And if you do nothing, they lose hope. You have to use a light touch, like a safecracker or a pickpocket, and that's what I am doing this week".

    Johns and Lockyer join Nathan Hindmarsh, Amos Roberts, Paul Gallen and Ty Williams on the sidelines.

    1. Matthew Bowen
    2. Matt Geyer (c)
    3. Dean Collis
    4. Paul Whatuira
    5. Sam Perrett
    6. Kurt Gidley (gk)
    7. Ben Roberts
    13. Paul Bowman
    12. Ian Hindmarsh
    11. Lance Thompson
    10. Matthew Scott
    9. Terrence Seu Seu
    8. Brad Thorn

    14. PJ Marsh
    15. George Carmont
    16. Rod Jensen
    17. John Sutton
