The Pre-Wrap: AFL Round Ten


For the Philosophical Marngrook Follower

The Wrap is still in mourning the loss of Club Legend Tommy Hafey.  (And the 2014 Season – Ed)  There will be no Round X Wrap.

The Wrapcave tips are in bold type.

The Pivotonians v The Shinboners at Cat Central tonight.  On form it’s The Kangas.  On reputation it’s The Handbaggers OTR.

The Greater Western Sydney Leviathans v The Striped Marvels at Spotless for the early one on Saturday.  Stripped Marvels or Striped Marvels, they should win this one.  If they don’t, expect Jumping Jack to take the Post match Presser.  Expect a big one from Motormouth.  Take a healthy slice of the $1.36.  The Breakfast Point Lads are out of Self Belief and out of sorts.

Carringbushv The Wedgies at THOF in the gathering gloom.  The Maggies OTR?  Or on the down?  At $4, and with The Collingwood attack faltering, Nic Nat Nui due to fire, and even with La Cras up with the WAGS, we’re making The Eddie Eagles The Wrap Roughie of The Round.  There’s something not quite right about The Woodsmen.

Port Adelaide v The Mayblooms for the big on TPAO up against Rockwiz.  The Hawks are depleted and The Power are surging.  Sorry Leafblowers – The Tealers.

The Red & Yellow Horde v The Kennel Coughs up on the Metricon Ride in the late afternoon of Sunday.  This one’s The Wrap Mortgage Buster of the week.  $1.20!!!  What’s Little Tommy thinking of?  (It’s not his money anymore Wrap – Ed)

The Miseries v The Chardonnays to close off the round on the Paddock That Grew.  Both sides are rating mediocre minus.  We’re going for The Homeside, but keep your hands in your pockets.

Good tipping, and even better punting.

And remember, if you read it in The Wrap you’ll know it’s not crap.

About John Mosig

I'm an Aussie Rules tragic who can remember, as a four year old, shaking the hand of Captain Blood in the rooms just before he ran out onto the ground after half time, as my Old Man slipped him a packet of under-the-counter Craven A cork tipped. Now it's my turn to take my grandson Ben through the ritual of character building that is the journey through PUNT ROAD to the outside world.


  1. Did you get down to the PTG on Monday to farewell the great man and the end of an era, Mr Wrap? Tommy, Reg and Jack in a week. My childhood is disappearing before my eyes, and I haven’t even started to grow up yet.
    I think I go to the footy these days more because it reminds me of my childhood, than that I enjoy the current spectacle.
    Hope you are right about my Wedgies. Its been raining Pivotonians and Scraggers all night here. Might cancel Saturday arvo’s golf and settle in with a Great Southern Pinot and fingers crossed to watch us on the box.

    Sounds like a great idea Mr B. We’ve had our share of the wet stuff, – 10mm – but will be OK for the bounce on Saturday. Ward Rooney is tipping a few late showers, but you should have it sown up by then.

    Yours sincerely,

    The Kiss of Death

    Cheatin’ umpires; useless Kennedy and Darling; and Pendlebury and Swan got off the leash in the last quarter.
    We lost; Collingwood didn’t win.

  4. The Wrap. says

    Not happy Jan? You had you’re chances. You can’t help but love a club that eats its own.

    Besides, how do you think we feel here in the Wrapcave? We don’t like our WROTRers going down needlessly. F#@!%FFF!

  5. John Butler says

    Hope the Tiges’ win revived spirits in the Wrap Cave TW.

    You were almost right about the West Coast Corporation. Not sure I share your optimism re the Blues.

  6. The Wrap. says

    Did I tip The Blues JB? Who are they playing? The Crows? Crikey! What was I thinking.

  7. I finally tipped the sweep. Dammit.
