After Europe took an early lead, Team USA’s pulled it straight back with a dominant week 4. It’s still early days so we have a lot to play for. Here are the week 5 matchups.
Week 5 – The Captains
To start the week we look at the captain’s matchups. Team ‘Captain America’ (The FTLS Boys) got their first win of the season last week and look to push on again. They have the only undefeated team to take on this week as team Europe’s ‘Roaring Poulter’ (PittsyNFL) come to town. Both teams won’t be wanting to start a losing streak here.
Europe’s captain ‘Team 5 Yard Rush’ (Stocks and Murf) have a tough battle this week as they take on USA’s ‘JSnakeDFF (Jacob). JSnakeDFF sits at 3-1 after a comfortable win in week 4 as the 5 Yard Boys will be looking to get back to winning ways.
Week 3 – Team Member Matchups
Team Europe’s ‘Benedict Arnold’ (Gary Haddow) is on 1-3 going into the week 5 matchup. They face USA’s ‘We Selected Scut Farkus’ (Shacknado – Brian) who is currently 2-2. Both teams have had tough games so will want to push on and get another win for their team this week.
Team USA’s team of ‘GoingFor2DotCom’ (Geoff) went 3-0 before receiving their first loss last week. They will want to get straight back to winning ways in week 5 as they go up against a 2-2 team of ‘AVFCJPS (James). AVFCJPS will need to have a stern word with his team after not turning up for week 4.
Next, up, two 2-2 teams facing each other as team USA’s ‘Mericaaaaaa F*** YEAAA’ (DrakePFSA) goes up against Europe’s ‘Marvellous McIlroy’ (Freddie ‘the franchise tag’ Hall). MFY is coming off a big win in week 4 and look to hand Mcllroy a 3rd straight loss. Marvellous Mcllroy will want to stop the streak and have the opportunity to sneak one here with the projections being so close.
The final matchup is between USA’s ‘Mr America’ (Kevin Tompkins) and Europe’s ‘JoshPattenden7’. This game is in the balance right now as it’s a 50/50 split. This is great news for Josh as he’s the only team left without a win and has a great opportunity to get one here.
USA lead but all to play for

As last week showed us things can change in an instance. Let’s see what this week brings, bring on week 5.
