Game Chat – North Melbourne vs Sydney

Written by Huttabito on July 15 2018

WHERE AND WHEN: Etihad Stadium, Sunday, July 15, 3.20pm AEST

SUMMARY
It’s crunch time for the Roos. They’ve exceeded all external expectations, but still find themselves outside the top eight – and with Sydney, Collingwood and West Coast to come in the next three weeks. Mason Wood booted four goals, including the match-winner, in a two-point triumph over the Swans in round seven, but a hamstring injury will prevent a repeat of those heroics. With Jarrad Waite (calf) also expected to miss, much will be left to Ben Brown to kick a winning score for North, although coach Brad Scott might again employ Majak Daw up forward. This match means plenty to Sydney, too, given John Longmire’s men have dropped back-to-back games to slip outside the top four. The Swans also lose veterans Jarrad McVeigh, Dan Hannebery and Kieren Jack to injury, meaning more heavy lifting for Josh Kennedy, Jake Lloyd, Luke Parker and Zak Jones. Brown and Lance Franklin are one-two in the Coleman Medal race with 46 and 39 goals, respectively.

Hutta’s Tip:  Sydney by 15points

While we do our best to update posts with end of quarter scores, we aren’t always online so if you have access to the scores and see they haven’t gone into the Comments section of this post, the Community would love it if you could help us out.

  1. I’m actually picking North.

    Tarrant matches up well on Buddy.

    Sydney will also miss their old boys. McVeigh is their safest kick from defence.
    Hannas and Jack have been playing very selfless roles all year.

    I’m not sure they have the depth at NEAFL level to cover them.

    Already picked Brisbane,Adelaide and GWS at home this week.

    North by 27

    1. Yeah the Swans are one of those teams IMO that tend to perform well when against diversity, seriously champion footy club!

      Swans have won 8/12 games in the NEAFL & sitting in the top 4 so they’ve got the depth, but no disrespect that league isn’t the strongest in comparison to the rest of the country Freo Tragic

      At Etihad, I tend to agree with your pick today

      1. No one should listen to me.

        My SC team is bleeding today.

        Nic nat 🙁

        The worst is still to come with my boys taking on Port.

        Why did I question the Swans fight ?
