  1. Team #3 is my bog
    Its centre line, full back line and ruck are hilarious.
    Well played.

  2. Paddy Grindlay says


    Gold, gold, gold.

  3. Channeling my not-so-inner seventeen year old, I give three votes to the half forward line of team #4. Then there’s two votes to the int. of team #3, and one vote to the enduring disappointment of the half back line of team #1.

  4. Mark 'Swish' Schwerdt says

    Can’t believe that Terry Short, Paul Bagshaw and Craig Cock weren’t named
