BUML Preview Round 7
Div 1 – Well Done
Bermuda Triangle v Poachers
Poachers are on a roll at the moment. They haven’t lost a game since round 1. I think they will be too strong here.

Drop Bears v Dyspnoeics
Dyspnoeics had a come from behind win last time these 2 titans of the Ultimate field clashed. This game comes down to how the Dyspneoics stifling D contains the long game of the Bears. My tip for this game's rating on the Pete Allen Niceness Scale is a whopping 92%.
Drop Bears by 3
UQ AUG v Cadillac
This game will go hard for UQ if they continue to play with low numbers. Athleticism and effort (being young) will only get you so far against a team of experienced campaigners (old folks) like Cadillac. The biggest question will be whether Atlas turns up clean shaven or with a deliberately manscaped bit of stubble.

Div 2 – Medium
Tsunami v Chimichangas
Chimichangas are a revelation this season. Clearly their off season recruiting has worked a treat. This could be an important game in Tsunami’s season as they are in a tight tussle for 4th at the moment.

Griffith A-Team v The Ghost Who Walks
This will be the only time these 2 teams meet in the regular season. Considering they are both chasing a finals berth, it could provide a key mental edge to the winner if they meet in October. Ghost are a force this season and should be too strong here.

Heroes v UQ Fluttershy
Poor Fluttershy. They came SOOOO close last week. The real question is will it encourage the youngsters from UQ, or make them feel like a win is impossible. I think Tomsteve will get them up for this match, but Heroes will get the lollies.

Agents v What The Huck?
I think for Agents to have any hope they need to shut down WTH?s long receivers. When the Huckers get near the endzone they have a tendency to bomb it for a hopefully easy score. Stick to your player and WTH may get impatient. I still think WTH? will be too strong.

Div 3 – Rare
Ultimate Apostles v Slipped Discs
The Ultimate Apostles are certainly a cocky bunch. Why not though when you are leading the division and undefeated? I tipped an upset last week and it almost came off with UA scraping home by 2. I’ll be tipping UA this week as the Slipped Discs have struggled to defend this season, letting in an avg of 14.1 points per game.
UA by 9
Griffith Go Yeahs v Mellow Yellow
This should be the most even Div 3 match this round. The Bananas are just doing enough when they win, while the Go Yeahs are certainly putting a few more points on. It’s the Go Yeahs O v the Yellows D here and I think the adage of defence wins premierships will shine through.
Mellow Yellow by 2
Dump and Burn v Griffith Aunties
The final game of the round should be entertaining affair. How the Aunties handle the disc will be the decisive issue. They are the lowest scoring team in Div 3. I wonder if Dump and Burn employ the tactics their name suggests?
