Premier League Round 8 - Anzac Day

Anzac Day Games
South vs Sturt
There will only be one winless team come Friday! Sturt seem to have been struggling to score without Rawson and I expect that to continue. Allmon again will be the focus for South but he's a lone hand.

Sturt by 1 in a game with 20 lead changes.

North vs Southern
Big game with North losing a few they'd have expected to win and Southern riding a little win streak. Tigers impressive in putting up 113 against West last week but North are a different proposition with their size across the board.

North to get back on track with a 7 point win.

West vs Woodville
West have released import Shane Heyward with coach McLean promising a replacement in the paper but I haven't seen anything official. They're on a 4 game skid since Kubank has returned, no doubt coincidental. Woodville have been up and down but will be looking to build on some solid recent form.

West by 4 with a Thomas triple double.

Norwood vs Eastern
Eastern have proven they're capable of hanging with the best teams but have struggled getting over the line against them. Norwood welcome Brian Moultrie back from their 2012 team, it will be interesting to see how effective he is in our league now.

Norwood by 12 but Morris to poster Moultrie as a welcome back.

Forestville vs Centrals
This game was a huge win to Forestville early in the year. Following their first loss Forestville will surely be looking to get back on track. Centrals have taken care of business to be 4-3 so far and I'm expecting a better effort from them this time.

Forestville to have too much firepower still and win by 11.

With Moultrie coming in, coach Webber will have a tough choice to make, who comes off the bench? Brine has been great, Lycett wouldn't take it too well. Looks like Legan may be the supersub, can't upset little bro even though he has been struggling.
If Wise is the new West import, the most interesting thing is who would finish last between him and Truslove in a suicide sprint?

It was being sarcastic with D Webber the obvious one to come off bench but the coach not doing it because he's related to him.

Its official the Sturt Sabres are unbelievably woeful! Bang on all you want about elite junior club when you more than suck at PL level. South's coach could coach U/10 mixed on a Sunday yet he pulled TC's pants down this afternoon.

Mavs lol the elusive 5 wins in 4 years didn't come again
Sturt how embarrassing
Ironic that the 3 worst pl teams have coaches who have 0 people skills.
These clubs seemingly all have top down issues
No coincidence

Knowing the coaches in the league not sure those guys are unique in that category.

Would you call the other coaches in this league Rhode scholars and/or great leaders?

I certainly would not by any stretch. Especially the long termers, that are not progressing anywhere, that can only get wins by running defunct junior programs even more into the ground.

Indeed, most of the top team coaches are simply arseholes, just got the resources to succeed.
Will be interesting next year if sturt do go in a new direction. Don't know much about Casella but playing with a bad hand. If they bring in 2 gun imports they could be very dangerous. Surely the powers that be there would be looking and saying stuff this, let's shut people up.

Geez, that's a bit of hate in regards to the PL coaches. Where's that anger come from?
I personally know most of those guys and only a couple are aresholes, not most. You sound bitter.

West's slide continues, 5 games 0 wins for Kubank. A coincidence but nevertheless has to be a depressing change room at Port Adelaide

A massive Hoops marquee match up yesterday with Jordan "towel wave" Wilson vs Sebastian "shammgod" Vozzo. Sadly for the thousands of fans Vozzo has on Hoops Wilson's ability to pass, unlike his competition, got them over the line.

Woodville now 4-4 ahead of West. Those calling for Whitmore's head look silly now.

Woodville never out of it. West coasted like they expected the win, no panic, then got over run in the last quarter. Spud running the point ahead of thomas is a disaster.

Thomas was sick yesterday. Asked to be subbed out and looked to be eating ice blocks on bench.

Norwood the real deal with Moultrie coming in. Mavs were galant and had some surges at the Flames but just lacked depth when the starters came out.
