    The coach of the Burpengary Boozehounds has named his team for the round one clash against CW and his Pie Throwers. The team is most likely to look this way:

    01. William Zillman
    02. Tony Martin
    03. Matt King
    04. Timana Tahu
    05. Jake Webster
    06. Benji Marshall
    07. Grant Rovelli
    08. Bryce Gibbs
    09. George Gatis
    10. James Stosic
    11. Simon Mannering
    12. Carl Webb
    13. Tonie Carroll

    14. Marshall Chalk
    15. Fraser Anderson
    16. Scott Logan
    17. Paul Aiton
    18. Matthew Bell
    (one to be omitted)

    Coach Crawford is yet to name his captain of the Burpengary Boozehounds for their inaugural year but it is believed Tony Martin, Matt King, Benji Marshall and Grant Rovelli are all in contention to captain the side in it's first game.

    Dancers Announce Round 1 team

    Disco-Stu has named a 19 man squad to take on the Reapers in there round 1 clash at the Dancefloor. Of particular note are the inclusions of young Bronco'd 5/8 Joel Moon in the centres and new signing Shaun Kenny-Dowell on the bench.
    Coach Disco-Stu warned there was still some tinkering before kickoff "we'll i named a 19 man squad so i have a bit of room to manauvre, Obviously Jeremy Smith and Nathan Friend are pushing for selection on the bench, they have the week at training to prove they are needed"
    The Dancers were pleased to note that of there 25 man squad, 20 were avaliable for first grade selection, however there was concern for the wing position "We are a bit short on for wingers and with Mcdonnell injured and Lawrence unavaliable we are concerned that we may only take the field with 12, though we hope that can be avoided"

    The Dancers lineup is

    1.Joel Reddy
    3.Steve Bell
    4.Joel Moon
    5.Steven Micheals
    6.Micheal Holdsworth
    7.Matt Orford
    8.Roy Asotasi
    9.Cameron Smith (C)
    10.Ben Ross
    11.Ryan Hoffman
    12.Clint Newton
    13.Greg Eastwood

    14.Shaun Kenny-Dowell
    15.Ben Pomeroy
    16.Brett White
    17.Logan Swann
    18.Jeremy Smith
    19.Nathan Friend

    The Friday on my mind sloths have announced their team for the first round clash with a few late signings jumping straight into the starting 17.

    Peter Wallace has stepped into the hole left after Preston campbell moved on last season and Mark Gasnier's injury having performed well in the trials. Kris Kahler has earned a starting spot on the back of some good training and a high work ethic. The experienced Cory Hughes was thrown a life line after nobody wanted him for the 2007 season, he is on match payments for the first 5 rounds and then will have a contract offered should his form warrent it. Young James Mcmanus and Trent Cutler have also pushed their way into the starting 17 and hope to make the most of thier opportunities.

    Coach Fluffy is however wary about playing the wooden spoon favourites first up, using Manly's dismal display in round 1 last year as motivation of what can happen if the coach forgets to get his troops ready.

    1. Brett Stewart
    2. Trent Cutler
    3. Luke MacDougall
    4. Ashley Graham
    5. Neil Sweeney
    6. Peter Wallace
    7. Todd Carney
    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

    New coach of the Runnersup Pigeons Homer J blames a computer glitch for his late start in recruiting his 2007 sqaud, "I thought daylight saving finished on the 1st weekend of March" he explained.

    Despite their slow start the Pigeons have managed to field a competitive team for their round 1 clash against the Drunk Monkeys at their home ground "The Graveyard"

    1 Shaun Foley
    2 Jason Moodie
    3 Shane Rigon
    4 Keith Lulia
    5 Adrian Purtell
    6 Sione Faumuina
    7 James Aubusson
    8 Ruben Wiki
    9 Tony Caine
    10 Steve Price (c)
    11 Luke Swain
    12 Corey Parker
    13 Bronson Harrison

    14 Cameron Phelps
    15 Josh Graham
    16 Glen Turner
    17 Michael Luck

    Coach Homer J explains his tactics for round 1 as follows "we will have three forward hitups, followed by another 2 forward hitups and then kick the bejeesus out of the ball". "If we repeat that about 50 times we should go close to winning"

    With Kane Cleal, Sam Rapira, Charlie Tonga, Michael Henderson & Stuart Webb left out of the team for the season opener coach Homer J has a wealth of Forward backups available for the season. "look i'm pretty happy with my squad" he said "but if somebody wanted to trade me a couple of backs for a few of my forwards well I would pay them the courtesy of listening". The Pigeons are believed to have about 1.9 million of their 4 million salary cap available for further recruitment.

    Ryan's team round one. Very much like The South Sydney Rabbits of years past, we may have to hope for a few miracles. Ryan has named a relatively full strength squad, but needs his players to lift to a level un seen before. Ryan would have to be morals for the wooden spoon according to most, but Ryan has faith in his boys to at least make the finals.

    1. Richard Mathers (Unavailable)
    2. Colin Best
    3. Todd Polglase
    4. Germaine Paulson (Unselected)
    5. Michael Crockett
    6. Dallas McIlwain
    7. Brett Seymour
    13. Craig Fitzgibbon (c)
    12. Manase Manuokafoa
    11. Matthew Cross
    10. Aaron Cannings
    9. Mark Minichiello
    8. Dane Tilse

    14. Ben Rogers
    15. David Seage
    16. Daniel Irvine
    17. Scott Geddes

    Ryan's team's only hope is that his opposition has Jason King playing which may earn me some gone missing points !!!

    Coach Mel Gibson had to be let go earlier this week due to strong protestations from major sponsor, the Weinstein Co.

    The Reapers side for round one has been confirmed by new coach Bender B. Rodriguez, the rookie coach has some doubters, but team owners are a fan of his in-your-face style and hope it will rub off on the players. He brings a wealth of experience (not necessarily league experience) in his support staff.

    After naming the side, Bender only had one thing to say "I love this team and the role I have taken on, I've got wealth, fame, and access to the depths of sleaze that those things bring".

    "It was like Tonto coming along to save Butch Cassidy " were the words used by coach Homer J of the Runnersup Pigeons to describe the last minute boost to his 2007 squad.

    "I am not at liberty to divulge the name of the benefactor" he added but be sure that a case of Runnersup's finest is on the way to Melbourne.

    When quizzed about some of the negative press regarding his late start in recruiting his squad he retorted "My critics claim I talk outta my arse , well I can assure them that in order to upgrade my squad it was used for an entirly different purpose."

    The upgraded squad reads

    1 Shaun Foley
    2 Jason Moodie
    3 Ben Smith
    4 Nigel Vagana
    5 Lelea Paea
    6 Sione Faumuina
    7 Joe Williams
    8 Ruben Wiki
    9 Tony Caine
    10 Steve Price (c)
    11 Luke Swain
    12 Michael Luck
    13 Luke Bailey

    14 Keith Lulia
    15 James Aubusson
    16 Shane Rigon
    17 Bronson Harrison

    Other squad members are

    Glen Turner
    Stuart Webb
    Sam Rapira
    Adrian Purtell
    Michael Hodgson
    AAron Groom
    Josh Graham
    Michael Bani

    When asked about the prospects of future changes to his team coach Homer J revealed "look i'm fairly happy now but will probably look at strengthening my 1, 6, 7 & 9 over the coming weeks, not that these positions are that important in the game these days"

    Asked about the ability of his fullback he replied "well he's really only there because I have nobody else but don't print that."
