Road Train Rollers vs Mile Die Club

Posted on March 8, 2011 by


The 2011 Adelaide Roller Derby League (ADRD) season opener sees last year’s champions Road Train Rollers take on Mile Die Club. Mile Die Club secured third place last year, after having lost all three games during the season (there are four teams in the league).

So, is it in the bag for Road Train Rollers? Not necessarily, RTR themselves had a patchy season last year, coming into the 2010 final with two wins and one loss to their name.

Road Train Rollers players to watch include Whimsicle Mimsicle (formerly known as Mad Dog Mims I believe) and her “magic pants” and Letta Loose whose fitness level appears to be right up there this year.

Mile Die Club’s star players include Dee Injuria (who I’m told won the 2010 award for best blocker) and Grimy Knickers who happily knocked Michelle flying during a fresh meat training drill last year!

My call will be Road Train Rollers to win by 50 points. Do you agree? Join the Diary of a Derby Wannabe 2011 Adelaide Roller Derby Tipping Competition and put your $5 where your mouth is.
