Welcome to your weekly wrap up of all things AUFC.
A mixed bag last week with 5/9 wins which is a bare pass.
As we approach the pointy end of the season it appears as though we should have a strong showing in the finals with the Budgie Smugglers, C-Men, Brady Bunch, Chardonnays, Office Raiders and Rising Stars all sitting pretty on their respective ladders.
Nobody was laughing at the Comedy Colleseum where the A+B Grade went down to the Tee Hees in a disappointing day out north - but let's be frank - any day spent out that far north is a disappointment.
The Pimp and Robert Reid put on a spectacular display at Bob Neil 1 with both sides giving North Pines an absolute flogging. Elsewhere the Chards continued their stellar season with a 10 goal win against Athelstone and the Scum were very naughty beating the Loser-uns by 44 points. The Scum's season has been redeemed however by just missing out on the finals, good Scum.
The B@stards' finals chances came to a close against arch-rivals Plum-broke, conceding a goal in the last minute despite Rulebook's repeated attempts to sway the game in our favour. Rumour has it that sorrows shall be drowned this Saturday night with an epic feast at T-Chow so if you're planning a romantic night out in Chinatown I would strongly advise against it.
This week's hot venue is Bob Neil 1 where the Brady Bunch is playing a qualifying final against St Paul's, followed by an elimination final between the C-Men and Karl Marx University.
The A+B Grades and the Chards have a triple header against the famous pizza-makers of Adelaide, up at Pizza Plaza whilst the B@stards' forecast is wet and warm as they prepare for one final battle against Golden Showers.
The womens' divisions have a double-header against Sarah Jessica Parker and her Thoroughbreds out at Kellett Reserve on Sunday starting at 1pm.
Lets get a loud n proud crowd at BN1 this Saturday for the first finals of 2016. We might just have to extend the Long Room to make way for all the extra silverware.

Travel Associates Testimonial
“Four boys walked into a bar… turned out it was a travel agent and before we knew it we were signed up to the trip of a lifetime, a cultural tour of Europe! Brianna was outstanding in organizing and managing every detail in meticulous fashion over a 6-9 month build-up period. She was creative in planning our multi-country jaunt, determined to make the process as smooth as possible for us and provided VIP service at every step of the way. We can’t recommend Brianna highly enough, and we doubt we’ll ever plan our own holidays again!” - Wesley Legrand
