IT was a controlled performance from almost every half in the competition this week, with solid kicking games across the board. We could have picked an entire team of halfbacks, five eighths and centres if we had wanted to. Maybe one week we will.
SOME contentious decisions this week in LeagueUnlimited.com's Team of the Week, perhaps none more so than the selection of Luke Brooks and James Tedesco as Halfback and Fullback.
IT'S every footy fan's nightmare - your team just lost on the weekend, and everyone is giving it to you about how rubbish you are. What you need is a solid excuse. What we've done is collected the best excuses for each losing team's performance, and chucked them into this easy guide.
EACH week we'll take a closer look at a each of the games, from the point of view of the punters. We've collected a handful of the best and worst comments from our Front Row Forums, and also grabbed the results of the weekly "Who will win" poll - to see if our members really do know their footy.
BACK again in 2014 is LeagueUnlimited.com's Team of the Week. This week we pick our dream team from Round 2, and bring you the tally for the LeagueUnlimited.com Player of the Year.
