That's right. I am dangerous.

Well lather me up in baby oil and throw me a volleyball. I mean rugby ball!

The Meat Pie isn't ready to turn in it's wings just yet, so let's see what all the bru-ha in Club Land is this week.

The Last Post?

A rumour doing the rounds at Rebels HQ is that one of the Club's most senior figures is waving goodbye after Sunday's match.

This is one departure that will bring all of the Stockade (and Victorian Rugby) to tears.

Do as I say, not as I play

It seems the competitive juices are still running in the veins of some of our Dewar Shield coaches, with a handful spotted lacing up the boots in recent weeks.

Tom Lucas (Uni), Chris Allen and David Palu (Harlequins) have been providing on the run tips to the lower graders, whilst Footscray president Charlie Sale has even been appearing in first grade.

Any guesses which of the quartet bombed a certain try last week, after failing to shift it to his outside men during a 3 on 1 overlap? It's certainly given his players plenty of fodder at training this week...

Try, Try, Try, again

Some Lindroth players have been feasting in the luscious pastures of the in-goal recently; Northern Panther's May Elder scoring 4 tries last week against Uni in an effort that had the scoreboard operators raising a sweat.

Unbeatable, right?!

Not quite. Naila Faaiuaso has topped that for Endeavour Hills two weeks in a row, scoring 5 tries each week.

The Eagles finisher has now scored 50 points in just 2 games so far this season.

How high will she soar? With the Panthers hosting the Eagles this week, it will be great to see who will come out on top.

Candy Man Can

Paul Candy refs his first Dewar shield game in over 7 years this weekend, when he oversees Quins vs Footscray.

After returning from overseas, we're tipping Candy may just find the speed of Dewar Shield a little quicker than he once remembers.

Rugby? On Number 1?!

Appears some Scotch noses were put out of joint at the news rugby (yes, that other oval ball code) would be granted permission to play on the no.1 oval this week. Their 90th anniversary clash against Melbourne Grammar is one of the greatest rugby traditions in this state, so well done to senior officials for approving the proposal.

Master and Commander

Russell Crowe look-a-like, Angus Arundel, makes his 100th senior appearance for Quins this Saturday.

A regular fixture in Axemen sides and NRC squads, the much loved prop becomes the 31 Quins to reach the ton.

Well done Rus! I mean, Gus.

Ram on the Gram

Geelong Rams have gotten with the times and jumped on instagram!
