Summer - Autumn Super Draft Comp - Round 16 - Sat Apr 29 - entries here please


Recommended Posts

After discussion with Alan & Pete I have decided to rescind my decision made on Saturday to leave the selection thread open at all times. So the status quo continues. I think some  participants need to make better communication with their Captains (or team mates in some instances) if there is any trouble posting. The issue has been rectified and Hesi has written specific instructions here as to the procedure to follow if you are having trouble:


Most teams communicate well and cover for each other. A few need to up their game.


Round 16 Saturday April 29

Strangely, we kick off in Adelaide in a tricky race with 4 last start winners then do the Why-car-tow tour before crossing to Queensland for an interesting Eagle Farm card that sees the Sydney visitors take on the locals and end up back in SA for the day's only Group One.

It's top vs bottom as cellar dwellers Max Factory take on table leaders Kelly's Heroes who may throw in a Joker to make things interesting. If Max could just solve his industrial disputes issues within the company - downing tools frequently - can an upset be on the cards ?

The Reapers may also feel like it's an opportune time to lay a Joker on the Ramones who are seeking redemption for some unlucky recent performances. Maybe not as cut and dried as it may look on paper.....

The Coyotes may be only one place behind the Desperados but 7 points separates the two teams however the Coyotes boast a considerably superior aggregate. Will the furry ones think about a sneaky Joker play ?? Some interesting HTH clashes in that one. 

The Union Jacks have two Jokers at their disposal and to stay in Championship contention Saturday's clash with The Believers is a "must-win", so will they play their regular Joker in an attempt to keep themselves in the hunt ? The Believers can't win the comp but they are capable of being spoilers for their remaining opponents. A Triple Joker card is at their disposal, hmmm...

Lastly the Dream Team are still in contention despite having the second worse aggregate - must be some smart captaincy going on there - and don't have an easy choice picking a couple of opponents for their Bye Round. Who will it be ?

Good luck everyone !
