    well on the way with 8 wins already It will be a side interest to see two former assistant coaches against each other and their team playing different styles of football Both teams are in fine form and this one will go down to the wire Adelaide Crows by 1 point Line St Kilda Saints 15 5 Greater Western Sydney Giants 15 00 vs Richmond Tigers 1 02 Skoda Stadium Saturday June 16 2 10pm Recent clashes First meeting Game preview The Tigers copped a mauling last week from Fremantle and stopped their steady march towards the 8 This week they get a bit of relief when they play the Giants and they can add another 4 premiership points to their tally For the Giants Well it s just another step on that long journey to gain experience for the players which will eventually lead to a few more wins Richmond Tigers by 76 Line Richmond Tigers 58 5 Gold Coast Suns 5 60 vs North Melbourne 1 15 Metricon Stadium Saturday June 16 7 40pm Recent clashes North Melbourne 17 25 127 d Gold Coast 13 15 93 round 5 2012 at Etihad Stadium Game preview After their weak display against St Kilda last week it s a sure thing that the Suns will come out for this game with a bit more determination and application North was beaten badly by Hawthorn the week before and needed the rest to get back their mojo No surprise here if the Suns don t lose by a lot although it s hard to see them win the game North Melbourne by 20 points Line Gold Coast Sun 36 5 Hawthorn Hawks 1 08 vs Brisbane Lions 8 25 MCG Sunday June 17 1 10pm Recent clashes Hawthorn 16 9 105 d Brisbane Lions 9 9 63 round 16 2011 at Aurora Stadium Game preview At time of writing the Buddy report had not been resolved but it will make little difference to the result of this game whether Franklin plays or not The Lions pulled a game out of the hat last match against West Coast but playing the Hawks at the MCG will be a bit harder Put it this way it would be another upset for tipsters Hawthorn by 52 points Line Hawthorn 48 5 Western Bulldogs 1 45 vs Port Adelaide 2 75 Etihad Stadium Sunday June 17 4 40pm Recent clashes Western Bulldogs 24 13 157 d Port Adelaide 15 7 97 round 22 2011 at AAMI Stadium Game preview It s hard to say who might win this game as the Bulldogs and the Power are two teams showing inconsistent form Catch either team on their day and they can play well enough to beat much better sides The Doggies copped a hiding from the Swans in their last outing and Port was roughed up and beaten by Hawthorn so there is no winning form to make a confident tip Port Adelaide in a close one

    pick a winner even though the Saints lost to West Coast and Sydney thrashed Melbourne Sydney travel to Melbourne to play the Saints at home Both teams have reasonable form and I m reluctant to pick against the Sydney Swans in what should be a close game St Kilda by 10 points Line St Kilda 2 5 Greater Western Sydney Giants 17 00 vs Essendon 1 01 Saturday 7 40pm EST 26 05 2012 Recent clashes First meeting Game preview The Giants opened their new stadium this week and unfortunately they meet a red hot Essendon who is likely to give them a mother of a thrashing The Bombers sit 2nd on the ladder due only to a lower percentage but I think this will be rectified this week and they will finish round 9 in top ladder position Essendon by 100 points Line Essendon 70 5 Adelaide 1 47 vs Collingwood 2 70 Saturday 7 10pm EST 19 05 2012 Recent clashes Collingwood 20 15 135 defeated Adelaide 14 8 92 round 9 2011 at Etihad Stadium Game preview The game is undoubtedly the match of the round with both teams in excellent winning form although the Pies are suffering some key player injury problems This game is more a test for Adelaide than Collingwood because the Crows are trying to make us believe that they are premiership contenders this year A win here means they have beaten both of the grand final teams from last year A win here also means that nobody will be game to argue that point about a possible premiership Adelaide by 22 points Line Adelaide 13 5 North Melbourne 1 27 vs Brisbane Lions 3 75 Sunday 1 10pm AEST 27 05 2012 Recent clashes North Melbourne 17 20 122 d Brisbane Lions 11 11 77 round 18 2011 at Etihad Stadium Game preview It s been almost impossible to determine what form North Melbourne is going to take into a game If they take that bewildering form into this game against Brisbane they are just as likely to lose The Lions won by almost 100 points last week but the opposition was nowhere near as good as North Melbourne will be North Melbourne by 32 points Line North Melbourne 23 5 points Melbourne Demons 9 50 vs Carlton Blues 1 05 Sunday 3 15pm AEST 27 05 2012 Recent clashes Carlton 21 8 134 d Melbourne 7 16 58 round 20 2011 at the MCG Game preview It s very fortunate that Carlton will be playing Melbourne this week because that match up guarantees that they will stop their slippery slide into oblivion and finally win a game A huge blow for the Blues with the loss of Murphy for 3 months and that injury will have a bigger impact when Carlton meets better teams than Melbourne Demon fans have been told to bunker down and maintain support as they go through what can only be described as a horror start to

    not drop him from your list Seaby and Everitt with Roberts Thomson Pyke and Walsh coming in while the Demons have dropped Bate Petterd Bail and Fitzpatrick and bring back Green Watts Blease and Jurrah This game being at the SCG certainly doesn t suit the play style of the Swans They are much better at ANZ Stadium That being said the Swans should win this game easy Have a feeling the Demons will come out and reach 25 points first but the Swans will take a firm grip of the game after half time and shoot away Sydney by 36 points Line Sydney 41 5 Western Bulldogs 1 17 vs Gold Coast Suns 5 00 Saturday 7 10pm EST 19 05 2012 Recent clashes Dogs won both games vs Giants last year The 2nd game was a close 22 point win AFL Tipping 95 Bulldogs 5 Suns Game preview The dogs were impressive last week while the Suns were good for 2 QTRs before losing to the Giants That was the type of game that actually disappoints a team The dogs lose Veszpremi and Roughead to injury but bring back Jones and Djerrkura Big changes to Suns losing Swallow and Dixon to injury and Brennan McKenzie Toy and Coad dropped while bringing in some decent players The dogs will be too strong The Suns will stay in the game but the Dogs will beat them down Western Bulldogs by 35 points Line Western Bulldogs 33 5 Essendon Bombers 1 52 vs Richmond Tigers 2 50 Saturday 7 50pm EST 19 05 2012 Recent clashes Tigers have had the wood on the Dons over the last 5 years with 5 from last 9 but Dons smashed them by 49 last game AFL Tipping 87 Bombers 13 Tigers Game preview Both these teams come in very hit Hurley is a HUGE in for the Dons with Colyer being dropped while the Tigers remain unchanged from their win over the Swans Both teams are in fine form so it comes down to how they match up The Tigers were given a very easy run up forward last week and they won t get the same against this Essendon team who press well defensively and are strong in the air Essendon should get the most of the midfield and have the more dominant Rucks The hardball should be won more by the Tigers but the scoreboard will be the telling area with Richmond struggling to score over 100 against quality teams Essendon have scored over 100 points in every game excluding the ANZAC day game so this should be a high scoring game Richmond have only scored over 100 points once this year against Melbourne Essendon by 22 points Line Essendon 12 5 Brisbane Lions 1 20 vs Greater Western Sydney Giants 4 50 Sunday 1 10pm EST 20 05 2012 Recent clashes First clash AFL Tipping 88 Lions 12 Giants Game preview Adcock Lester Green and Bewick are all quality in s
