Hounds Blitz Bears
The Hounds regained top spot in the competition over the weekend with a win against Pine Rivers.
They took control early with some well constructed tries and never looked like being challenged in an emphatic 54-6 thumping of the Bears. Rookie winger Sean Butler put on a classy display in his first game for the Hounds, scoring a try and challenging the line numerous times. Captain Patty 'Wombat' Webster overcame a nasty head gash from last week's tough defeat to score 2 tries. Also managing to bag a double was cult figure Mick 'Doc' Doherty. The man mountain, Michael 'Tower' Hinchcliffe, finally managed to open his try scoring account for the season which will see him avoid the infamous 'Nudie Run' later in the year. Old Boys points went to Pat Webster (3), Mick Doherty (2) and Sean Butler (1). The Hounds now look to the coming weekend's home match against the Gators.
Come down to Purtell Park, Bardon for kick off at 3pm for a great afternoon of park footy.
Normanby 54 (Tries: M. Doherty 2, P. Webster 2, M. Humphris, C. Muharem, S. Butler, A. Steele, M. Hinchcliffe, M. Crosby; Goals: M. Humphris 7/10) defeated Pine Rivers 6.

Star winger battles killer boils
The people's winger, Rice Hopper, is fighting an uphill battle against a nasty case of 'Killer Boils'. The zippy flanker recently discovered one of these horrific lesions on the back of his neck. In a candid interview the 55kg dynamo expressed his disappointment in regards to not being available for selection last weekend and hopes the issue resolves itself soon. "It's just one of those things that comes with being a red head," stated Mr. Hopper. We hope he gets better soon.
I can reveal that some sensitive footage was leaked by one of my informants this afternoon. The footage is of a semi-naked, delusional Tony 'T-Bone' Casey. I'm not sure of the context of the footage, but there is speculation surrounding Mr. Casey getting a call up to the hit TV show, 'Dancing with the Stars'.
