    Apparently Egan hadn't trained at all , and didn't want to kick anyone out who had put in the hard yards ! Not sure on staude tho , by the way he played he hadn't trained either , but saying that , even half fit I would have thought they were in the best 21

    It would be good to get some interest back into this thread. What are peoples thoughts on teams performances so far?

    Edenhope Apsley going along nicley and living up the the preseason hype and some even say they have one of the best sides ever put together in the HDFL. I am yet to see them so I will reserve my judgement on that one. Should be a big match this week at Kalkee. Kalkee on the other hand have had one slip up with a draw against Laharum but should do better on their home ground. Laharum appear to be not far off the top two and are definately worthy contenders. Harrow Balmoral have had two big losses and still have to come up against EA, Rup and Laharum. Swifts had a slow start to the year but should continue to improve and expect them in the top five at the end. Rupanyup were very disappointing on Saturday and have now dropped out of the five and could struggle over the next few weeks against HB and TL. As expected Taylors Lake and NQ have fallen away a bit this this year. While it will be a long year again for Pimpinio and Natimuk with wins few and far between.

    Tips for the coming round:
    Kalkee V EA: Kalkee by 6 points
    Swifts V Laharum: Laharum by 10 points
    HB V Rup: Harrow Balmoral by 5 points
    Natimuk V TL: Taylors Lake by 60 points
    Pimpinio V NQ: NQ by 20 points

    Some say best side ever put into the HDFL? teams have gotten close to beating them.... When Kalkee were in there prime no1 looked like beating them... Anyway i reckon Kalkee will match up well against them seems you shut down there 2 key forwards and there in trouble... Have heard that if Crilly is outside 30 metres will miss the goal... Plus only takes a few injures to any side and they will struggle.. Imagine no Mibus or wade in Kalkee. No crilly or Dixson at edenhope all of a sudden they have no target up forward...

    Nice effort from Swifts could throw in Sean Mantell on a wing and Brett Hargreaves as a ruckman or backup ruckman to wade

    Sean mantell you serious? Red legs there are a lot of players like him in the league. Inter league is about the best players in the comp. Players that dominate this league and he isn't one of them. On the other hand Secretsaintsfans team looks good. Dangerous forward line.

    Do you think that allthe players saint named will play? Mantell would play on a wing? Can you tell me abit about this McLeish that was named on a wing? First time in the league been in the best a few times but does he 'Dominate' the league? Same with Carter on the HFF line who is he and he seems to be going alright but not dominating...

    I do agree though Saints team looks good as i said, I was only suggesting a few other possible inclusions...

    McLeish a former NB Rebel and two time Bellarine Interleague rep while Tim Carter a hampden premiership player with Koriot! both guns!!!

    If you check the best oppy and Mail Times Voting you will see Carter and McLeish are two of E/A best and with the Saints well on top of the ladder both would deserve their spot in the interleague team.

    And it neither of their first time in the league. McLeish played E/A's very first season in the HDFL and was runner-up in their B&F at 17 yrs of age, while Carter won a flag with Harrow Bal back in 2002ish and played half a season in 2008 with E/A before he got injured.

    are you serious??? you obviously havent watched the kid play a whole lot, have you??? Sean Mantell does dominate, he would probly be the best wingman in the comp... i cannot think of any other player in the HDFL that has his pace, his hardness at the ball and his ability to take high, conested grabs... not to mention the fact that he's almost un-tacklable...

    Yes, he is a good footballer I never said he wasn't. But he is not THAT good that you stawell boys are making him out to be. What I've heard he has been very quiet this year so far.

    Well Rocket was at the club last night until 10pm drinking cans with the boys after taking training, so I think there's a fair bit of myth about this one.

    I'm not sure about the outcome but NorajQuanny did have a crisis meeting that went for an hour at Tuesdays training after their demoralising loss to Pimpinio.

    Interleague side is in Mail times paper today. The side looks ok this year but I believe it can be so much better if more quality players committed. They are not doing there league any favors especially if they lose again. My opinion this league should be ranked a lot higher.

    But... Its the same for most leagues not in the top few, If each league put its 100% best side in, youd see improvement across the board

    i dont get the mail times in hard copy so any chance you can put the side up!

    Although i did read online that 4 natimuk players are in.. that cant go well if the one of the major supplier of players is on the bottom of the ladder and yet to win a game! Could be another loss!!!!!

    Whats the latest on the nati boys getting injured last weekend??? That rules them out of winning a game this year if lovel and Mcdonald arent out there!

    Easy round in the tipping this week...

    E/A by 12 goals over Swifts.
    Kalkee by 150 over Pimp.
    Laharum by 50 over H/B.
    Nor-quan by 100 over Nati.
    Rup by 75 over TL.

    I dont think there will be any game under a 50 pnt margin unless the rain hits! Thoughts?

    Also any word on any late recruits/returners to clubs prior to the 30 June clearance cutoff??

    I see Kalkee have re-signed triple premiership player Tim Ladlow. Returning to the club from Geelong?
