Game Chat – Dons v Dees

Written by Motts on April 2 2016

Venue:  The MCG at 2:10pm.

Last Time They Met:

R15, 2015, Essendon 10.9 (69) d Melbourne 7.18 (60) at the MCG

Best SC in last match:

  • Essendon – Daniher 127, Hurley 123, Stanton 116, Heppell 112, Goddard 105
  • Melbourne – Gawn 150, McDonald 141, Jones 97, Vandenberg 97

Key outs:

  • Essendon – no-one you’d consider “key” – Simpkin, Bird, McKernan
  • Melbourne – Dawes (injured), the new kid McDonald

Game notes: Round one was a stark contrast for these two sides, with Melbourne’s optimism and hope a far cry from the Bombers’ opening-round thrashing. The Dees overcame an inaccurate Greater Western Sydney by two points thanks to a brilliant final term, while the Bombers were outplayed by Gold Coast and lost by 61 points. The challenges that Essendon will face throughout the season without 12 of their best players became more clear against the Suns, and Melbourne should enter this clash confident of backing up its season-opening win.

Mottsy’s Tip: Dees by 50

  4. This is painful to watch. It’s like someone spiked the Demons Gatorade at the start of the game and they’re not sure which way is up. LIFT DEES!!!
