LEAGUE Wrap: Round 8, 29-30 April, 1 May 2005
THIS week's mob is a tough bunch with a few players out of their accustomed positions, but the League Unlimited selection panel is firmly of the view that each player can hold their own where they've been selected. This team could give any club in the NRL a working over and are oozing point-scoring ability. Here is the Round 7 League Unlimited Team of the Week.
WHILE things seem to be going swimmingly for some teams, others just go from bad to worse. After looking like they turned the corner against Manly, the Dragons went down to the Broncos in a must win situation. Similarly after weeks of frustration, Andrew Johns was enjoying proceedings, then one tackle and a broken jaw later and look what happens. And I thought I was having a hard time with an abysmal 22 from 42 picks this season!

WHAT a superb line-up! As the footy keeps getting better each week, so does the talent we get to choose from. This time around we've got a star-studded side bursting at the seams with Internationals and other players showing great form in the toughest competition in the world. Given the exhibition of mouth-watering play witnessed this weekend, the Round 6 League Unlimited Team of the Week can stand up, march out onto the field and be firmly proclaimed as "the bomb!"
LAST week certainly lived up to it?s ?upside down? reputation, with this punter picking three winners and taking his total to 20/35, which might be fair to middling in most tipping competitions, but then again I could be applying liberal doses of generosity. One startling fact to emerge from the rubble though, was the order amongst the chaos. Surely, with all the lopsided and unpredictable results, you wouldn?t imagine that one of sports most treasured institutions would actually prove true? Remarkably, the home ground advantage came to the fore and was the one constant amid a seemingly changing landscape.

Round 4, Round 4, 1-3 April 2005
WHAT a sensational round of footy and with it comes another bumper League Unlimited Team of the Week. There's only two names in here from last week, proving even further that this year's comp is one of the most competitive and unpredictable to date. Given some of the fine displays over the weekend, I think side would capture the mantle as this season's finest.
