GWS vs Western Bulldogs

GWS 9.11 65 – Western Bulldogs 15.14 104

(Western Bulldogs by 39 Points)

The Giants took on the Bulldogs at Manuka Oval and hung in there for three quarters, but were overrun by the talented Bulldogs midfield.

Jack Macrae was best on ground with 40 Disposals, and Tom Liberatore played his best game of the season.

Marcus Bontempelli, Adam Treloar and Josh Dunkley were solid all evening in the middle, and Alex Keath and Bailey Dale continue to go about their business down back.

For the Giants, Toby Greene was lively up forward all evening, Jacob Hopper was good in the middle, and Lachlan Ash was racking up the cheap stats in the back-half.

Josh Dunkley – 29 Disposals (23 Effective and 12 Contested), 5 Marks (2 Marks Inside 50), 5 Clearances, 15 Score Involvements, 8 Ground Ball Gets and 2 Goal Assists

Note – The Dogs pulled away from the Giants to kick off Round 6, and Jack Macrae won a lot of the football. His ball use was elite, and his disposals kept the ball moving forward on many occasions.


Geelong vs West Coast

Geelong 21.10 136 – West Coast 5.9 39

(Geelong by 97 Points)

The Eagles got off to a decent start, but were well beaten in this clash in the final three quarters.

Geelong dominated every area of this game and was led by Mitch Duncan with 4 Goals.

Cam Guthrie and Joel Selwood won the contested footy battle, and Rhys Stanley got the better of Nic Naitanui in the ruck.

The Eagles struggled, but Jack Darling was probably their best player and kept presenting as a forward option.

Vote Chances

Rhys Stanley – 15 Disposals (12 Effective), 4 Marks, 4 Clearances, 9 Score Involvements, 11 Hit-outs to advantage and 1 Goal

Jack Henry – 19 Disposals (18 Effective), 8 Intercept Possessions, 10 Marks (6 Intercept Marks), 7 Score Involvements and 1 Goal

Lock of the Week

Lock of the Week 2021

3 Votes (Geelong) Mitch Duncan (3) ⭐⭐⭐

26 Disposals (21 Effective), 13 Marks (3 Marks Inside 50), 4 Clearances, 12 Score Involvements, 6 Ground Ball Gets, 516 Metres Gained and 4 Goals

Note – Duncan was fantastic in the easy win over the Eagles and gets the lock of the week. He made smart decisions and was in the right spots to hit the scoreboard with 4 Goals. An awe-inspiring display from the Cats veteran.


Gold Coast vs Sydney

Gold Coast 15.10 100 – Sydney 9.6 60

(Gold Coast by 40 Points)

The Suns came into this game as the underdogs, but got the better of the Swans for an impressive win.

Touk Miller was solid in the middle for most of the match and was well supported by Noah Anderson.

Ben King was good up forward, presenting well with 5 Goals.

The difference was up forward where Nick Holman, Ben Ainsworth and Izak Rankine applied pressure on the Swans defenders, and they had an impact on the result.

For the Swans, Josh Kennedy won a lot of the hardball, and both Callum Mills and Luke Parker had decent games, but it didn’t have an impact on the scoreboard.

Vote Chances

Noah Anderson – 34 Disposals (28 Effective), 7 Marks, 6 Clearances, 8 Score Involvements, 6 Ground Ball Gets, 536 Metres Gained and 29 Pressure Acts

Nick Holman – 23 Disposals, 6 Intercept Possessions, 7 Marks, 5 Inside 50s, 13 Tackles (9 Tackles Inside 50), 27 Pressure Acts and 1 Goal

Ben Ainsworth – 20 Disposals (14 Effective), 9 Marks (2 Marks Inside 50), 4 Inside 50s, 6 Score Involvements and 3 Goals

Projected Votes

1 Vote (Gold Coast) Ben King (1)

14 Disposals (10 Effective), 7 Marks (6 Marks Inside 50), 10 Score Involvements and 5 Goals

2 Votes (Sydney) Josh Kennedy (2)

42 Disposals (31 Effective and 22 Contested), 6 Marks, 11 Clearances, 7 Inside 50s, 7 Score Involvements, 14 Ground Ball Gets, 7 Tackles, 32 Pressure Acts and 482 Metres Gained

3 Votes (Gold Coast) Touk Miller (6) ⭐⭐⭐

36 Disposals (26 Effective and 17 Contested), 6 Intercept Possessions, 9 Clearances, 6 Inside 50s, 12 Ground Ball Gets, 9 Tackles and 510 Metres Gained

Note – This match was an upset, and the Suns midfielder came up big. Featuring in many of the critical statistics of past winners, Miller continually got the ball out of congestion and was very good at applying pressure on the opposition.


Carlton vs Brisbane

Carlton 12.13 85 – Brisbane 15.13 103

(Brisbane by 18 Points)

The Blues hosted the Lions and showed promise, but the talented Lions side was just too good.

Hugh McCluggage continued his excellent form on a wing for the Lions, and Dayne Zorko led from the front, applying a lot of pressure on the Blues mids.

Jarryd Lyons and Lachie Neale both had an impact, and Deven Robertson proved that he should be in the Lions best 22.

For the Blues, Sam Walsh and Ed Curnow had an impact in the middle, and Liam Jones tried hard all match down back. Harry McKay was their standout with 6 Goals.

Vote Chances

Jarryd Lyons – 24 Disposals (13 Contested), 6 Clearances, 7 Ground Ball Gets and 1 Goal

Sam Walsh – 33 Disposals (25 Effective and 10 Contested), 9 Marks, 5 Clearances, 8 Inside 50s, 7 Score Involvements, 9 Ground Ball Gets, 464 Metres Gained and 1 Goal

Ed Curnow – 30 Disposals (14 Contested), 8 Clearances, 10 Inside 50s, 9 Ground Ball Gets, 7 Tackles, 715 Metres Gained and 1 Goal

Projected Votes

1 Vote (Carlton) Harry McKay (4)

15 Disposals (12 Effective), 9 Marks (5 Marks Inside 50), 9 Score Involvements and 6 Goals

2 Votes (Brisbane) Dayne Zorko (2)

20 Disposals (14 Contested), 9 Clearances, 8 Inside 50s, 9 Score Involvements, 7 Ground Ball Gets, 11 Tackles, 31 Pressure Acts and 446 Metres Gained

3 Votes (Brisbane) Hugh McCluggage (5) ⭐⭐

33 Disposals (13 Contested), 6 Marks, 6 Clearances, 5 Inside 50s, 10 Score Involvements, 12 Ground Ball Gets, 599 Metres Gained and 3 Goal Assists

Note – McCluggage didn’t poll a lot of votes last season, being more of an outside player, but he won contested ball in this match and is stepping up in the absence of Lachie Neale. An excellent game in this one and will go in favourite for the three votes.


Melbourne vs Richmond

Melbourne 12.10 82 – Richmond 6.12 48

(Melbourne by 34 Points)

The Demons may be the real deal after a big win over the reigning premiers.

Christian Petracca won the medal for best afield, whilst Christian Salem got a lot of disposals and setup play from the Demons defence.

Clayton Oliver continues his good form as well as Max Gawn, whilst Tom McDonald presented well up forward all evening.

Not a lot of shining lights for the Tigers, but Shai Bolton and Shane Edwards were good in the middle.

Vote Chances

Tom McDonald – 18 Disposals (10 Contested), 5 Marks (3 Contested and 3 Marks Inside 50), 4 Inside 50s, 6 Score Involvements, 5 Spoils, 2 Goal Assists and 3 Goals

Max Gawn – 22 Disposals (18 Effective and 12 Contested), 7 Intercept Possessions, 6 Marks (4 Contested and 3 Intercept Marks,), 5 Inside 50s, 6 Ground Ball Gets and 17 Hit-outs to advantage

Shai Bolton – 28 Disposals (12 Contested), 9 Marks (5 Contested and 4 Marks Inside 50), 4 Clearances, 7 Ground Ball Gets, 508 Metres Gained and 1 Goal

Projected Votes

1 Vote (Melbourne) Clayton Oliver (9)

36 Disposals (17 Contested), 7 Intercept Possessions, 4 Clearances, 10 Score Involvements, 6 Ground Ball Gets, 6 Tackles and 32 Pressure Acts

2 Votes (Melbourne) Christian Salem (2)

39 Disposals (31 Effective), 9 Intercept Possessions, 7 Marks, 6 Inside 50s, 8 Rebound 50s, 786 Metres Gained and 1 Goal

3 Votes (Melbourne) Christian Petracca (10) ⭐⭐

38 Disposals (17 Contested), 10 Clearances, 7 Inside 50s, 11 Score Involvements, 11 Ground Ball Gets, 7 Tackles, 26 Pressure Acts, 720 Metres Gained and 1 Goal

Note – The Demons upset the Tigers, and Petracca had a significant influence in the middle of the ground. Christian Salem was also very good down back, but Petracca extracted the football from congestion and made smart decisions. Should get the maximum votes.


Fremantle vs North Melbourne

Fremantle 14.15 99 – North Melbourne 6.12 48

(Fremantle by 51 Points)

The Dockers were too good for the Kangaroos in front of no crowd at the Optus Stadium.

David Mundy continued his impressive form booting 3 Goals, whilst Nat Fyfe was fantastic in the middle, but still can’t kick a goal.

Youngsters Caleb Serong and Andrew Brayshaw had good games in the middle, whilst Matt Taberner and Lachie Schultz booted 4 goals.

Jack Ziebell pleased a lot of AFL Fantasy fans with a lot of cheap disposals down back, but it didn’t have an impact apart from maintaining possession and preventing the margin from being greater.

Vote Chances

Andrew Brayshaw – 31 Disposals (23 Effective and 10 Contested), 8 Marks, 9 Score Involvements, 6 Ground Ball Gets, 6 Tackles and 21 Pressure Acts

Sean Darcy – 15 Disposals, 4 Clearances, 4 Inside 50s, 7 Score Involvements, 5 Ground Ball Gets, 8 Tackles (2 Tackles Inside 50), 12 Hit-outs to advantage and 1 Goal

Jack Ziebell – 37 Disposals (34 Effective), 10 Intercept Possessions, 14 Marks (4 Intercept Marks), 8 Rebound 50s and 617 Metres Gained

Projected Votes

1 Vote (Fremantle) Caleb Serong (1)

35 Disposals (17 Contested), 7 Marks, 6 Clearances, 6 Inside 50s, 11 Ground Ball Gets, 7 Tackles, 21 Pressure Acts and 677 Metres Gained

2 Votes (Fremantle) Nat Fyfe (5)

34 Disposals (23 Contested), 7 Marks (4 Contested and 2 Marks Inside 50), 7 Clearances, 6 Inside 50s, 13 Score Involvements, 14 Ground Ball Gets and 2 Goal Assists

3 Votes (Fremantle) David Mundy (10) ⭐⭐⭐

30 Disposals (22 Effective and 15 Contested), 8 Clearances, 4 Inside 50s, 7 Score Involvements, 12 Ground Ball Gets and 3 Goals

Note – The veteran Docker was at it again and is a surprise on the leaderboard this season. When a midfielder racks up 30 touches, boots a few goals and uses the footy effectively, they normally get the maximum votes.


Hawthorn vs Adelaide

Hawthorn 15.12 102 – Adelaide 16.3 99

(Hawthorn by 3 Points)

The Crows got the early jump on the Hawks and had a healthy lead at Half-time. The Hawks came back on the second-half and pinched the match on the back of 5 Goals from young forward Jacob Koschitzke.

Jaeger O’Meara was among the best afield for the Hawks, whilst defenders Jarman Impey and Changkouth Jiath were solid all day.

For the Crows, Ben Keayes was solid all day in the middle and the first gamer Riley Thilthorpe booted 5 Goals.

Vote Chances

Rory Laird – 32 Disposals (18 Contested), 5 Marks, 7 Clearances, 11 Ground Ball Gets and 5 Tackles

Riley Thilthorpe – 16 Disposals, 5 Marks (3 Contested and 3 Marks Inside 50), 6 Score Involvements and 5 Goals

Paul Seedsman – 27 Disposals (22 Effective), 5 Marks, 8 Inside 50s, 6 Score Involvements, 996 Metred Gained and 1 Goal

Projected Votes

1 Vote (Hawthorn) Jacob Koschitzke (1)

14 Disposals, 9 Marks (3 Contested and 8 Marks Inside 50), 11 Score Involvements, 2 Goal Assists and 5 Goals

2 Votes (Hawthorn) Jaeger O’Meara (5)

31 Disposals, (16 Contested), 6 Marks, 5 Clearances, 6 Score Involvements, 11 Ground Ball Gets, 5 Tackles, 21 Pressure Acts, 471 Metres Gained and 1 Goal

3 Votes (Adelaide) Ben Keayes (3) ⭐⭐

31 Disposals (23 Effective nd 17 Contested), 7 Intercept Possessions, 8 Marks (2 Marks Inside 50), 10 Clearances, 10 Ground Ball Gets, 13 Tackles and 1 Goal

Note – The Crows lost the match, but Keayes was a clear standout despite the loss. The result may hinder his chances of getting the three, but he was the best player on the ground.


Collingwood vs Essendon

Collingwood 13.7 85 – Essendon 16.13 109

(Essendon by 24 Points)

The ANZAC Day blockbuster was a close one for three quarters in front of 70+ thousand at the MCG. The Bombers pulled away at the end and were the better side on the day.

Darcy Parish won the ANZAC Day medal, whilst Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti was dangerous all day up forward and booted 5 Goals.

Other Bombers that impressed were, Peter Wright in the ruck, Jayden Laverde down back, whilst Zach Merrett and Dyson Heppell led from the front and had decent influence.

For the Magpies, Steele Sidebottom tried hard all day, Brodie Grundy racked up the fantasy points, and Jack Crisp and Darcy Cameron were among their best players.

Vote Chances

Zach Merrett – 34 Disposals (25 Effective and 10 Contested), 6 Marks, 7 Clearances, 8 Score Involvements, 8 Ground Ball Gets and 6 Tackles

Jayden Laverde – 21 Disposals (19 Effective), 11 Intercept Possessions, 13 Marks (5 Intercept Marks), 4 Spoils and 1 Goal

Steele Sidebottom – 30 Disposals (17 Contested), 9 Clearances, 6 Inside 50s, 9 Ground Ball Gets, 12 Tackles and 44 Pressure Acts

Projected Votes

1 Vote (Essendon) Peter Wright (1)

16 Disposals (15 Effective), 10 Marks (4 Contested and 2 Marks Inside 50), 8 Score Involvements, 6 Tackles (2 Tackles Inside 50), 5 One Percenters and 2 Goals

2 Votes (Essendon) Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti (2)

10 Disposals (9 Effective), 7 Score Involvements, 6 Tackles (3 Tackles Inside 50), 26 Pressure Acts and 5 Goals

3 Votes (Essendon) Darcy Parish (6) ⭐⭐⭐

42 Disposals (30 Effective and 17 Contested), 6 Marks, 9 Clearances, 7 Inside 50s, 9 Score Involvements, 11 Ground Ball Gets, 619 Metres Gained and 2 Goals

Note – Parish won the ANZAC Day Medal and will more than likely get the three votes from the umpires. He has stepped up his game in the absence of Dylan Shiel and amassed over 40 Dispsoals, and kicked 2 goals in the win.


Port Adelaide vs St Kilda

Port Adelaide 14.9 93 – St Kilda 5.9 39

(Port Adelaide by 54 Points)

The final game for Round 6 and the Power was far too talented for a struggling Saints outfit.

Karl Amon had the ball on a string in the first-half, and Ollie Wines won the medal for best afield.

Other Power players that had an impact were Tom Jonas, down back, Orazio Fantasia up forward, and Travis Boak was again solid in the middle,

Not a lot of contributors for the Saints, but Seb Ross won a lot of the footy.

Vote Chances

Travis Boak – 27 Disposals (21 Effective and 11 Contested), 5 Marks, 7 Clearances, 9 Score Involvements, 7 Ground Ball Gets, 5 Tackles and 1 Goal

Dan Houston – 32 Disposals (15 Contested), 8 Marks (2 Contested), 4 Clearances, 5 Inside 50s, 5 Rebound 50s, 11 Ground Ball Gets, 430 Metres Gained and 4 Tackles

Orazio Fantasia – 15 Disposals, 6 Marks (3 Marks Inside 50), 4 Inside 50s, 8 Score Involvements, 410 Metres Gained and 3 Goals

Projected Votes

1 Vote (Port Adelaide) Tom Jonas (1)

26 Disposals (21 Effective), 11 Intercept Possessions, 15 Marks (7 Intercept Marks), 5 Rebound 50s, 7 One Percenters, and 6 Spoils

2 Votes (Port Adelaide) Karl Amon (2)

34 Disposals (26 Effective), 15 Marks, 4 Inside 50s, 6 Rebound 50s, 6 Score Involvements and 555 Metres Gained

3 Votes (Port Adelaide) Ollie Wines (8) ⭐⭐

36 Disposals (28 Effective and 13 Contested) 7 Marks, 8 Clearances, 7 Inside 50s, 6 Score Involvements, 9 Ground Ball Gets, 5 Tackles, and 2 Goal Assists

Note – Wines was consistent all night in this match and continues his superb form. Karl Amon did have a big first-half, but had less of an impact in the second. Hard to go past Wines for best of ground honours.
