St Kilda vs Geelong

St Kilda 5.17 47 – Geelong 10.8 68

(Geelong by 21 Points)

The Cats were let off the hook in this one with inaccuracy in front of goal from the Saints. The Saints had a real crack, but Geelong was too good in the end.

Cam Guthrie had yet another impressive performance in the middle of the ground and racked up plenty of the football. Mitch Duncan, Zach Tuohy, Tom Stewart and Lachie Henderson were a few other solid contributors.

For the Saints, Jack Steele was again a workhorse in the middle, and Brad Crouch was among the best afield before leaving the ground injured for a minor period.

Sydney vs Collingwood

Sydney 10.12 72 – Collingwood 5.12 42

(Sydney by 30 Points)

The Swans took on the Pies to kick off the Saturday slate of AFL Matches and the Pies hung in there in the first half only to be outclassed in the second.

Callum Mills and Luke Parker were among the Swans best in the win, whilst Tom Hickey continues his impressive form as the number one ruckman.

Forwards Isaac Heeney and Hayden McLean were strong up forward, and Dayne Rampe was rock solid down back.

For the Pies, Will Hoskin-Elliott was busy, and Jack Crisp was one of their best in his 150th consecutive match.

Vote Chances

Tom Hickey – 19 Disposals (16 Effective and 16 Contested), 5 Intercept Possessions, 3 Marks (3 Contested and all Intercept Marks), 8 Clearances, 5 Inside 50s and 6 Ground Ball Gets

3 Votes (Sydney) Isaac Heeney (3)

22 Disposals (18 Effective), 6 Marks (3 Marks Inside 50), 9 Score Involvements, 5 Ground Ball Gets and 3 Goals

Note – Not the easiest match to split the votes as the Swans had some decent contributors, but when Heeney hits the scoreboard, he has polled well in the past. He had a real impact on the result at important times and is a real shot at the maximum votes.


Hawthorn vs North Melbourne

Hawthorn 12.8 80 – North Melbourne 13.9 87

(North Melbourne by 7 Points)

The Hawks looked the goods early, but the longer the game went on, the Kangaroos could sniff their first victory of the season.

On the back of stellar performances from Jy Simpkin and Ben Cunnington, the Kangaroos pleased coach David Noble and got their first win of the year.

Todd Goldstein won the ruck battle, and Luke Davies-Uniacke and Cam Zurhaar were other contributors.

For the Hawks, Chad Wingard was probably their best player and was well supported by James Cousins, Blake Hardwick and Liam Shiels.

Note – The Kangaroos got their first win, and Simpkin racked up a lot of the football and was busy extracting it. He polled ok in last years count, and had a big match in this one, but so did his midfield teammate Ben Cunnington.

Gold Coast vs Brisbane

Gold Coast 7.9 59 – Brisbane 19.10 124

(Brisbane 73 Points)

This match was excepted to be somewhat close, but the Lions continued their impressive run without 2020 Brownlow Medalist Lachie Neale.

They made the Suns look second rate, with Jarryd Lyons and Dayne Zorko having a significant influence at stoppages. Hugh McClugage continues his decent run of form, but Brandon Starcevich, Harris Andrews, and Grant Birchall kept the Suns from hitting the scoreboard. Forward Dan McStay played his best game of the season and snagged four goals.

Not a lot of contributors from the Suns, and they missed the midfield influence of Touk Miller. David Swallow was probably their most consistent contributor.

Vote Chances

Dan McStay – 14 Disposals (13 Effective), 8 Marks (4 Marks Inside 50 and 3 Contested), 7 Score Involvemetns and 4 Goals

Harris Andrews – 17 Disposals (17 Effective), 9 Intercept Possessions, 11 Marks (6 Intercept Marks and 5 Contested), 9 One Percenters and 9 Spoils

Note – The Lions had a big win, and Jarryd Lyons had a significant impact in the middle of the ground. Dayne Zorko was also excellent, but Lyons gets the nod in this one with elite ball use and lots of pressure on the opposition.

Richmond vs GWS

Richmond 13.9 87 – GWS 12.11 83

(Richmond by 4 Points)

The Giants looked to be in control for the majority of this contest, but give Dusty an inch, and he will take a mile as he was a clear X-Factor in this match.

This was a gutsy win from the Tigers with many significant players out, and Dustin Martin was incredible and snagged 4 Goals. Liam Baker stepped up and filled the void in the middle of the ground, making a massive contribution. The Tigers defence and pressure around the football stood out and pinched them the win.

For the Giants, Jacob Hopper was excellent in the middle and at extracting the football at stoppages. Josh Kelly and Tim Taranto continued their impressive form, and Jesse Hogan proved that he can still play at the elite level.

Vote Chances

Toby Nankervis – 16 Disposals (12 Contested), 5 Marks (5 Intercept Marks), 7 Clearances, 6 Hit-outs to advantage, 8 One Percenters, 5 Tackles and 8 Spoils

PlayUp

Port Adelaide vs Western Bulldogs

Port Adelaide 12.5 77 – Western Bulldogs 15.6 96

(Western Bulldogs by 19 Points)

The Power hosted the Dogs in Adelaide, and the Bulldogs came out on top in a gutsy performance.

Marcus Bontempelli was again influential in the middle, and Tom Liberatore was in and around the stoppages, consistently extracting the ball from a congested situation.

The elite ball use of Caleb Daniel was on show down back, and Aaron Naughton was the best forward on the ground with 4 Goals.

For the Power, Ollie Wines and Travis Boak were their best and should probably poll based on their input, but the Dogs won the match and may fill the votes page come Brownlow Night.

Darcy Parish continues his superb form this season and had another best on ground performance. Nick Hind, Mason Redman and Jordan Ridley were again solid on the defensive end, and Andrew McGrath had a decent match in the middle of the ground.

For the Dockers, Sean Darcy won the ruck battle, and Andrew Brayshaw racked up a lot of uncontested footy.

Melbourne 13.16 94 – Carlton 10.8 68

(Melbourne by 26 Points)

The Demons continue to roll on in the 2021 AFL Season and have now won 9 matches straight. They took care of the Blues and are looking the goods approaching the bye rounds.

Clayton Oliver was again instrumental in the middle of the ground, and Tom McDonald provided a lot of headaches for the Blues defenders and presented well all match.

Christian Petracca also had an influence at stoppages, and defenders Jake Lever and Christian Salem continue their fine form on the back-half.

For the Blues, Patrick Cripps tried his best all day and was good at congestion, whilst Sam Walsh and Sam Docherty were among the Blues best.

Vote Chances

Christian Petracca – 27 Disposals (16 Contested), 5 Marks, 8 Clearances, 8 Inside 50s, 7 Score Involvements, 11 Ground Ball Gets and 528 Metres Gained

West Coast vs Adelaide

West Coast 16.10 106 – Adelaide 11.10 76

(West Coast by 30 Points)

The last game of the round, and it was a brilliant second quarter show from Eagles Forward Jack Darling that set up the win for the home side. Darling was fantastic in the second quarter and booted five goals which helped the Eagles create a protectable lead.

Tim Kelly was again busy in the middle of the ground and was the prime beneficiary of the elite ruck work from Nic Naitanui. Small forward Jamie Cripps stepped up in the forward line, and defender Alex Witherden played his best game of the season.

For the Crows, Rory Laird was excellent in the middle of the ground and won a lot of the football to be the shining light.
