Some tough rounds.

1. FIGHT
2. GRASSED
3. 512 = (100+25+3)*(6-1-1)
4. PRICKED
5. SCANDAL
6. one off: 925 = (6+5)*75 + 100
7. FLORIN
8. four off: 918 = 9*6*(7+5+4+1)
9. Gave up. Perfectly common word, I guess the Y made it tricky.

COASTLAND was an excellent spot, but unfortunately not listed in the Macquarie. (This mix has come up before, in fact, in NG 299, where I noted that omission.)
