This annoys me. This is the direct quote:

"We've got a bit more depth so I'll probably rest down forward instead of going off the ground as much," Rockliff told the Herald Sun.

So instead of going off the ground, he's gonna go forward.

Ladder from last year will not load in archives due to photoobucket folder being deleted.

For those that are interested last years table.

1. Hebden Bridge Hedgehogs  60
2. Winchester Warewolves 56
3. Bradford Badgers 56
4. Nottingham Hoods 44
5. Hastings Hurricanes 40
6. Manchester Magic 40
7. Newcastle Falcons 40
8. Leeds Leaches 32
9. Swindon Swaggers 32
10. Crosby Cruisers 32
11. Huddersfield Hawks 32
12. Birmingham Dragons 28
13. Liverpool Rams 28
14. Blackpool Bunnies 28
15. Oxford Owls 28
16. Swansea Breakers 16
17.Grope Lane Giants 12
18. Staines Steins 8

IMO the big improvers based on trades and preseason performances will be the Steins. Can see them climbing the ladder to the mid 6.

I suggest using imgur, it's much better than photobucket.

Does not like Ubuntu may look at other alternates but photobucket suits me at the moment.

Fyfe has to be up there in the MVP. Kills SC every week and ultra consistent at DT - 100-110 most weeks.

Also Steines not on the bottom :D

Struggling now though. Going to need another season or two to add depth before we get out of the rut.
