Round 7 AFL Preview
Last Week 7/9 Season Total 36/54
While the holiday was nice and the Eclipse was outstanding viewing, it is good to be back to the daily grind and shirking my responsibilities in order to get this preview out. That being said, if anyone reading this has kids and has never been to Karijini to explore the gorges…book now. What a wonderful natural playground we have in our own backyard.
St Kilda vs Port Adelaide Marvel Stadium Friday Night
What a great game to start the round
W. Bulldogs vs Hawthorn Marvel Stadium Saturday Afternoon
Hawthorn came agonizingly close on the
weekend and as they go through a painful rebuild, they will continue to have
some of these painful moments. This week
against Footscray however, will not be painful.
It will be a swift and merciful death at the hands of a team which is
now surging after a rocky start. Footscrays
ball movement has improved, and I even saw footage of Caleb Daniel out-bodying
Sean Darcy which says a lot for confidence.
W. Bulldogs by 50 points.
I liken this contest to an Imperial Tie Fighter being sent out to bring down Luke Skywalker.

Darth Vader “Nah, it’s all good, you can do it buddy.”
Stormtrooper 538764 “But, he has the force with him”
Darth Vader “Force Smorsh, you got this.”
Hopefully, the cinematographer will do us
viewers a favour and make it look like Stormtrooper 538794 has a chance before
he is snuffed out. I’m not predicting
any dramatic effect here.
West Coast vs
I mentioned earlier West Coasts injury
issues and that they are in a league of their own. I haven’t seen an injury toll this large
This shapes as an interesting battle and
the MCG will be humming with fans of both camps expecting a win. Scott v Scott. An exciting sideshow as the two brothers
square off against each other. Twins are
always up to twinny shenanigans so don’t be surprised to find out years later
that Chris really coached Essendon and Brad coached Geelong on this day…just
for the sheer japery of it. Essendon
have played some good footy this year and will be bitterly disappointed after
letting Collingwood over-run them in the final quarter of the ball-busting
ANZAC Day match. Before I left on
Who would have predicted that
