Yes. With Adam and Stephen missing, we saw what was effectively St. George's "B" run roughshod through the Lightning Rounds.
Of course, they were rather sluggish and unimpressive in rounds that weren't under Reach rules - which means that they are very much vulnerable.
Now onto the game:
Is there a Duffett in the house? In case anyone didn't know, "Bobby" was one of the stock answers of Angela Duffett (star player from Discovery Collegiate last season)...
About the interviews, they've resorted to the following two things: Asking every New Brunswick player why New Brunswick is so good on the show, and asking every returning player about their performance the previous season. At least Alex semi-redeemed himself.
I noticed that they didn't play "Flight of the Bumblebee" prior to the spelling category...I wonder if that was deliberate (to avoid torturing Alex)
Unfortunately, Jourdan becomes the first player this season to finish in the negs this season.
Alex vs Christian at the Brain Pod will definitely be worth the price of admission, though...
