Richmond vs Western Bulldogs

Richmond 11.11 77 – Western Bulldogs 7.13 55

(Richmond by 22 Points)

The Tigers played the Bulldogs on a Friday Night at the MCG, and it was the Dogs that got off to the fast start and looked the goods early with a lead at the half.

The Tigers regrouped at Half time and dominated the third term to gain momentum, which helped set up the win.

Trent Cotchin was influential in the middle of the ground, and Shai Bolton lifted in the second half and booted 3 Goals. Tom Lynch was a solid presence up forward all evening with 3 Goals, and Bachar Houli and Nathan Broad were solid down back.

Note – The Tigers came out on top in the blockbuster Friday Night clash, and Bolton got better and better as the game went on. A brilliant last quarter, and he hit the scoreboard with 3 Goals. A definite best of ground favourite.


Collingwood vs Gold Coast

Collingwood 7.13 – Gold Coast 12.7 79

(Gold Coast by 24 Points)

The Magpies took on the Suns at the MCG, and the Suns controlled the football and came out on top.

Brandon Ellis had the football on a string and racked up the uncontested possessions, whilst Touk Miller and Hugh Greenwood had a massive influence in the middle. Young forward Josh Corbett also impressed, booting 4 Goals.

The Pies struggled in this clash, but their shining light was Brody Mihocek with a career-high in disposals, and he also booted 4 Goals.

Vote Chances

Josh Corbett – 16 Disposals, 11 Marks (4 Contested and 6 Marks Inside 50), 7 Score Involvements and 4 Goals

Sam Collins – 23 Disposals (17 Effective and 10 Contested), 11 Intercept Possessions, 12 Marks (5 Intercept Marks), 6 Rebound 50s, 5 Ground Ball Gets and 6 One Percenters

34 Disposals (13 Contested), 8 Marks, 6 Score Involvements, 9 Ground Ball Gets, 5 Tackles and 25 Pressure Acts

2 Votes (Gold Coast) Brandon Ellis (2)

26 Disposals (21 Contested), 6 Intercept Possessions, 5 Marks (2 Contested and 2 Marks Inside 50), 12 Clearances, 16 Ground Ball Gets, 10 Tackles, 23 Pressure Acts and 1 Goal

Note – The Suns were impressive in the win over the Magpies, and it was tough to pick the best player, with three players making significant contributions. Greenwood polled well in the count last season loaded up the stats sheet in all the critical areas. His size and ability to extract the football from congestion stood out, and he gets the nod here.


Adelaide vs GWS

Adelaide 4.15 39 – GWS 15.16 106

(GWS by 67 Points)

The Crows hosted the Giants, and despite the game being close in the initial stages, the talented Giants midfield got it done.

Tim Taranto is the favourite for maximum votes and did a lot of the in and under work in the middle of the ground. Jacob Hopper well supported him and outside players Josh Kelly and Lachie Whitfield, impressed. Jesse Hogan had a big first game for his new club and booted 4 Goals.

Not many shining lights for the Crows, but Paul Seedsman, Rory Laird and Ben Keayes were again the leading ball winners.

Vote Chances

Lachie Whitfield – 30 Disposals (22 Effective), 8 Marks, 6 Score Involvements, 7 Ground Ball Gets and 706 Metres Gained

Sam Taylor – 14 Disposals (11 Effective), 8 Intercept Possessions, 9 Marks (2 Contested), 7 Rebound 50s, 12 One Percenters and 12 Spoils

Note – The Giants smashed the Crows, and Taranto was the most consistent midfielder on the ground. He continually racked up the possessions and was good at helping the Giants attack. Will be the favourite for the 3 in this one.


St Kilda vs Hawthorn

St Kilda 19.14 128 – Hawthorn 9.5 59

(St Kilda by 69 Points)

The spotlight was on the Saints all week as they have underperformed and been disappointing. They were out to prove a point in this game and belted the Hawks.

Zak Jones was a clear best on ground for the Saints and was very good at extracting the football from a congested situation. 

The pressure has been on the fast-paced Brad Hill, and he impressed with the pressure off the football and elite ball use. Forwards Dan Butler and Jack Higgins booted 7 Goals between them, whilst Jack Steele, Hunter Clark and Brad Crouch were influential.

The Hawks were well beaten, but Tom Mitchell and James Worpel won a lot of the footy.

Vote Chances

Hunter Clark – 26 Disposals (20 Effective), 10 Score Involvements, 472 Metres Gained, 6 Tackles, 26 Pressure Acts and 2 Goals

Jack Sinclair – 26 Disposals (18 Effective), 11 Intercept Possessions, 6 Marks, 4 Inside 50s, 5 Rebound 50s, 6 Score Involvements, 6 Ground Ball Gets, 432 Metres Gained and 1 Goal

Dan Butler – 18 Disposals, 9 Marks (4 Marks Inside 50), 9 Score Involvements and 3 Goals

Projected Votes

1 Vote (St Kilda) Brad Crouch (3)

32 Disposals (24 Effective and 10 Contested), 7 Clearances, 7 Inside 50s, 7 Score Involvements, 6 Ground Ball Gets, 4 Tackles and 23 Pressure Acts

2 Votes (St Kilda) Brad Hill (2)

27 Disposals (23 Effective), 6 Intercept Possessions, 6 Inside 50s, 10 Score Involvements, 5 Tackles, 28 Pressure Acts, 571 Metres Gained and 3 Goal Assists

3 Votes (St Kilda) Zak Jones (3) ⭐⭐⭐

37 Disposals (29 Effective and 16 Contested), 8 Marks, 7 Clearances, 6 Inside 50s, 13 Score Involvements, 10 Ground Ball Gets, 6 Tackles, 497 Metres Gained and 2 Goals

Note – The Saints stepped up in this match, and Jones played his best match of the season. He used the ball well, won a lot of contested ball, and had many Score Involvements. He took the game on and helped bring other players into the match.


Brisbane vs Port Adelaide

13.15 93 – Port Adelaide 5.14 44

(Brisbane by 49 Points)

This match was tipped to be close, but the Lions came out on top convincingly at home.

Hugh McCluggage continues his good form, and he was well supported by Jarryd Lyons and Dayne Zorko. Charlie Cameron was lively up forward, and Harris Andrews continues to be rock solid on the defensive half.

The Power was well beaten, but Ollie Wines had a good game and is a chance to feature in the votes, despite the loss.

Vote Chances

Jarryd Lyons – 28 Disposals (16 Contested), 5 Marks, 7 Clearances and 11 Ground Ball Gets

Joe Daniher – 17 Disposals, 7 Marks (2 Contested and 3 Marks Inside 50), 6 Inside 50s, 7 Score Involvements, 466 Metres Gained and 2 Goals

Ollie Wines – 37 Disposals (13 Contested), 7 Marks (2 Marks Inside 50), 4 Clearances, 6 Inside 50s, 9 Score Involvements, 10 Ground Ball Gets, 451 Metres Gained and 1 Goal

Projected Votes

1 Vote (Brisbane) Charlie Cameron (1)

13 Disposals, 6 Marks (4 Marks Inside 50), 9 Score Involvements, 4 Tackles (2 Tackles Inside 50) and 4 Goals

2 Votes (Brisbane) Harris Andrews (2)

15 Disposals (15 Effective), 11 Intercept Possessions, 10 Marks (7 Intercept Marks), 4 Rebound 50s, 12 One Percenters and 9 Spoils

3 Votes (Brisbane) Hugh McCluggage (8) ⭐⭐⭐

30 Disposals (14 Contested), 6 Intercept Possessions, 5 Marks, 6 Clearances, 4 Inside 50s, 5 Rebound 50s, 12 Score Involvements, 11 Ground Ball Gets, 531 Metres Gained, 34 Pressure Acts and 1 Goal

Note – McCluggage is having a breakout season and is stepping up in the absence of Lachie Neale. He has increased his contested ball total in the last few weeks and is applying pressure on the opposition. He will be the favourite for the 3 in the win.


Sydney vs Geelong

Sydney 14.6 90 – Geelong 12.16 88

(Sydney by 2 Points)

The Cats led most of the evening in Sydney, but the Swans hung in there and managed to pinch the win after an impressive late goal from forward Tom Papley.

Some smaller names stepped up for the Swans in this match, and Oliver Florent had a significant influence in the last quarter. James Rowbottom also had a decent game and may feature in the votes. Ruckman Tom Hickey can also not be discounted as he helped give the Swans first use of the footy and won the Ruck Battle.

For the Cats, Cam Guthrie, Joel Selwood and Mitch Duncan all had solid games and were a big reason the Cats led the majority of the way.

Vote Chances

James Rowbottom – 20 Disposals, 6 Marks, 5 Inside 50s, 6 Score Involvements, 4 Tackles, 26 Pressure Acts, 572 Metres Gained and 1 Goal

Joel Selwood – 29 Disposals (22 Effective and 14 Contested), 7 Intercept Possessions, 6 Clearances, 9 Score Involvements, 10 Ground Ball Gets and 7 Tackles

Mitch Duncan – 29 Disposals (21 Effective), 7 Marks, 5 Clearances, 4 Inside 50s, 11 Score Involvements and 1 Goal

Projected Votes

1 Vote (Sydney) Tom Hickey (2)

20 Disposals (16 Effective and 16 Contested), 11 Clearances,  9 Ground Ball Gets and 1 Goal

2 Votes (Geelong) Cam Guthrie (9)

30 Disposals (23 Effective and 12 Contested), 9 Clearances, 10 Inside 50s, 7 Score Involvements, 10 Ground Ball Gets, 7 Tackles and 26 Pressure Acts

3 Votes (Sydney) Oliver Florent (3) ⭐

26 Disposals (19 Effective), 5 Marks, 4 Clearances, 7 Inside 50s, 7 Score Involvements, 645 Metres Gained and 2 Goal

Note – The Swans pinched a close one, and Florent was very important in the closing stages. Florent’s acceleration with ball in hand, stands out, and he has netted three votes in matches in previous years. No certainty, but his fourth-quarter influence helped win the game.


North Melbourne vs Melbourne

North Melbourne 11.7 73 – Melbourne 16.7 103

(Melbourne by 30 Points)

The Kangaroos started this game off well, and led the match well into the third quarter.

Ben Cunnington was influential in the middle of the ground and is a decent chance at votes, despite the loss. Aaron Hall and Jy Simpkin well supported him in the middle of the ground.

For once, it wasn’t the Demons star midfield that dominated their best player sheet. Bailey Fritsch was lively up forward all game, and defenders Steven May and Christian Salem were solid down back. Ed Langdon also had an influence in the middle and provided a lot of run and carry.

Vote Chances

Christian Salem – 29 Disposals (20 Effective), 8 Intercept Possessions, 4 Marks, 5 Score Involvements, and 7 Ground Ball Gets

Christian Petracca – 23 Disposals (16 Effective), 7 Marks (2 Marks Inside 50), 8 Clearances, 9 Inside 50s, 8 Score Involvements, 6 Ground Ball Gets, 4 Tackles, 22 Pressure Acts and 539 Metres Gained

Aaron Hall – 33 Disposals, 12 Marks, 4 Clearances, 4 Inside 50s, 6 Rebound 50s, 4 Tackles and 792 Metres Gained

Projected Votes

1 Vote (Melbourne) Steven May (3)

25 Disposals (22 Effective), 7 Intercept Possessions, 14 Marks (2 Contested), 8 Rebound 50s, 552 Metres Gained, 12 One Percenters and 10 Spoils

2 Votes (Melbourne) Bailey Fritsch (2)

14 Disposals (12 Effective), 6 Marks (2 Marks Inside 50), 10 Score Involvements, 5 Ground Ball Gets and 6 Goals

3 Votes (North Melbourne) Ben Cunnington (3) ⭐

35 Disposals (25 Effective and 20 Contested), 5 Intercept Possessions, 8 Clearances, 9 Score Involvements, 13 Ground Ball Gets, 6 Tackles, 23 Pressure Acts and 2 Goals

Note – The Kangaroos led the match for three and a half quarters, and Cunnington was the best player on the ground. The Demons had an off day, but it was tough to pick a Demon for BOG honours. Cunnington gets the nod despite the loss, but this one could go several ways.


Essendon vs Carlton

Essendon 16.11 107 – Carlton 19.9 123

(Carlton by 16 Points)

The Bombers and the Blues went at it at the MCG in a see-sawing contest that was high scoring and good to watch. The Blues were too good in the end on the back of solid performances from their midfield.

Sam Walsh was influential in the middle and was well supported by Ed Curnow and Patrick Cripps. Forward Eddie Bets and Harry McKay also combined for seven goals between them.

The Bombers lost the match, but Zach Merrett, Darcy Parish and Cale Hooker were among their best.

Vote Chances

Adam Saad – 21 Disposals (18 Effective), 6 Intercept Possessions, 6 Inside 50s, 6 Rebound 50s, 8 Score Involvements, 677 Metres Gained, 3 Goal Assists and 1 Goal

David Cunningham – 25 Disposals (17 Effective), 5 Inside 50s, 8 Score Involvements, 9 Ground Ball Gets, 2 Goal Assists and 2 Goals

Jake Stringer – 18 Disposals (13 Effective and 12 Contested), 6 Clearances, 6 Inside 50s, 7 Score Involvements, 7 Ground Ball Gets, 456 Metres Gained and 3 Goals

Projected Votes

1 Vote (Essendon) Darcy Parish (7)

26 Disposals (21 Effective), 6 Clearances, 7 Inside 50s, 9 Score Involvements, 7 Tackles, 28 Pressure Acts, 507 Metres Gained and 2 Goal Assists

2 Votes (Carlton) Ed Curnow (5)

26 Disposals (20 Effective), 5 Intercept Possessions, 5 Inside 50s, 8 Score Involvements, 6 Ground Ball Gets, 6 Tackles (2 Tackles Inside 50), 28 Pressure Acts, 446 Metres Gained, 2 Goal Assists and 1 Goal

3 Votes (Carlton) Sam Walsh (6) ⭐⭐⭐

33 Disposals (23 Effective and 13 Contested), 6 Marks, 7 Clearances, 8 Score Involvements, 8 Ground Ball Gets, 5 Tackles, 23 Pressure Acts, 492 Metres Gained, 2 Goal Assists and 1 Goal

Note – Walsh was brilliant in this match and helped bring other teammates into it. He is getting more confident with the football and should get the three in this one.


West Coast vs Fremantle

West Coast 20.12 132 – Fremantle 11.7 73

(West Coast by 59 Points)

The Derby went ahead out West despite fans being locked out of Optus Stadium.

The match was good to watch in the first half and high scoring, with both sides skinny on the back half. The Eagles were too good in the second half and won the match comfortably.

Tim Kelly won the Glendinning-Allan Medal for best on the ground and significantly influenced the middle. He was well supported by Andrew Gaff, Dom Sheed and Jack Redden, whilst Jack Darling gave the Dockers inexperienced defenders many headaches up forward. Nic Naitanui won the ruck battle, and the Eagles mids were able to win the ball out of the middle and attack.

Andrew Brayshaw was the best Docker on the ground in an overall disappointing second-half show from his side.

Vote Chances

Dom Sheed – 30 Disposals (24 Effective and 11 Contested), 6 Marks, 7 Clearances, 10 Score Involvements,  7 Ground Ball Gets and 27 Pressure Acts

Jack Redden – 29 Disposals (22 Effective and 11 Contested), 5 Intercept Possessions, 5 Marks, 6 Clearances, 5 Inside 50s, 9 Score Involvements and 31 Pressure Acts

Andrew Brayshaw – 32 Disposals (29 Effective and 15 Contested), 4 Clearances, 10 Ground Ball Gets, 4 Tackles and 32 Pressure Acts

Projected Votes

1 Vote (West Coast) Jack Darling (2)

17 Disposals, 9 Marks (5 Marks Inside 50), 10 Score Involvements, 5 Tackles (3 Tackles Inside 50), 1 Goal Assist and 3 Goals

2 Votes (West Coast) Andrew Gaff (5)

35 Disposals (27 Effective), 6 Marks, 9 Score Involvements, 5 Ground Ball Gets, 1 Goal Assists and 1 Goal

Note – The Medal winner, Kelly, seemed everywhere at times and played his best game of the season. He continually extracted the footy out of a congestion situation and helped apply a lot of pressure on the opposition. The Lock of the Week.
