Footy rnd 5

 A few games of interest but looking like a week where most of the fav's should win....

 

Coin toss anzac day, thinking Grundy might be too much for the Bombers talls...

 

Sydney

Port

Bris

Hawks

WC

Coll

Rich

GWS

Freo

 

I'll be interested to see what Melbourne and Carlton bring this week.

 

Also the spotlight will start to shine brighter on the Crows if they dont give Sydney a nudge...

Fri, 2018-04-20 16:39

No Kruzer means that Lycett and NicNat should be able to do whatever they like and Hutch will likely get a run with role with Cripps to shut down their Murphyless midfield.

Look for how many times we see NicNat to Shuey to Kennedy over the game.

Yes Andy, early reports are that he took his own life

We all know he had issues but it is sad when this happens, he was a talented footballer in my eyes,

Condolences to his family, at least now he is at peace.

Big opportunity for the Eagles this round

Fri, 2018-04-20 18:46

 Melbourne form has been lousy of late, so they need to win this one and should win.

Sydney to win over Adelaide.

Thinking the Cats might get up over Port.

Brisbane with no expectation over the Suns.

Hawks, Pies, Tigers, GWS and Fremantle (only coz at home but expect Bulldogs to push them).

Could be another hard round to tip winners.

Sun, 2018-04-22 06:28

 Thought freo were pretty good with how they transitioned the footy from defence into the forward 50.  On the other hand how bad were the bulldogs?

Fyfe helped himself to another 3 browlow votes, walters 2, and sandi 1 i reckon.

I am looking foreard to the derby next weekend.

Should be some good banter next week with the big derby

Sun, 2018-04-22 09:49

 I think Randall is in love with the man bun at Freo  .

An ugly win for the Eagles yesterday, but they toughed it out and got the points at the G.

Carlscum had nothing to lose and had a good crack at it. Less points and more goals would have made it a comfortable win and hopefully that won't happen against our cross town rivals!

Sun, 2018-04-22 18:19

Injuries dont help (having Rioli and Burgoyne back would be nice...) but are not the reason. Can't speak for timboon but myself personally am not overly worried (doesnt mean I am not unhappy with the performance though), seeing as the Hawks right now are still a work in progress. If that game was last year the Roos would've gone onto win by a hundred points as the Hawks would've gone fetal position. At least they were able to fight their way back in for some respectability but you can't go conceding 50 point half time leads and then try and win, seeing as they no longer have the quality across each line like in years past.

They probably have exceeded expectations a little so far and these sort of losses will happen. Good to see Bruest back to his best, Jarman Impey is looking a quality pick up and I am coming around to Ricky Henderson. Inevitable that Mitchell would have no influence at some point. Some serious concerns with O'Brien doing jack shit, Burton having a tough time after a great year previous, Roughy doesn't look right and a few other passengers that aren't really going anywhere career wise. Could've been 4-1 but its 3-2 with the Saints next week.

Too many B'ish grade players too often atm
