Game Chat – North v Sydney

Written by Motts on May 14 2017

Venue: Etihad Stadium, 4.40pm AEST

LAST FIVE TIMES
R22, 2016, Sydney 12.13 (85) d North Melbourne 10.16 (76) at Blundstone Arena
R10, 2016, Sydney 14.7 (91) d North Melbourne 9.11 (65) at the SCG
1SF, 2015, North Melbourne 11.11 (77) d Sydney 7.9 (51) at ANZ Stadium
R11, 2015, Sydney 14.7 (91) d North Melbourne 10.15 (75) at Etihad Stadium
1PF, 2014, Sydney 19.22 (136) d North Melbourne 9.11 (65) at ANZ Stadium

Game notes:

The last game of the round could also be one of the most interesting. North Melbourne and Sydney entered round seven with a combined one win from 12 chances this year, but recorded respective emphatic wins over Adelaide and the Brisbane Lions. Only the Swans’ rich recent history has stopped pundits completely writing them off, but they must defeat the Roos if they expect to mount a finals run. The two sides rode key forwards (Lance Franklin and Jarrad Waite) to victory last week, but only Sydney can expect a repeat performance, with Waite out again through suspension. That leaves the responsibility back on Ben Brown, who has proven up to the task. How well Ben Cunnington, Jack Ziebell, Shaun Higgins and co. stack up with the Josh Kennedy, Luke Parker and Dan Hannebery-led Swans onball brigade will be crucial to the result.

  1. Of course Newman is playing, I traded him for Bont on Friday!

    I swear, this year someone found a Supercoach doll somewhere that bears a vague resemblance to me, and they’re sticking tiny little needles in it every weekend.

  2. Newman had better outscore Berry… knowing my luck, he’ll score exactly one point before doing an ACL!

  4. Newman’s brilliance is great for my SuperCoach side, but an absolute disaster for my Fantasy side, where he’s sitting on the bench, with Melican’s magnificent 0-points-to-half-time score sitting at D6.

    If Taylor Adams hadn’t threatened to be a late out, I would have left Newman on the field, but that would have required me to select two emergencies (one for Adams, one for Newman), and I didn’t want to risk only needing one.

    Hopefully Melican can stay on 0 DT points so I can get Stewart’s score, but realistically I suspect he’s going to go and get a single-digit score in the second half.

    1. Unfortunately even if he does get 0, you will cop it as he played. The emergencies only cover a player who doesn’t play.

      1. Bugger… I was under the impression that it counted a 0 as the same thing.

        I wish I’d never heard about Taylor Adams’ hand!

  6. How Marsh gets a run before Newman, or Hayward gets a run before Towers is a total mystery to me.

    Such decisions explain Sydney’s start to the year.

    1. I think Longmire focuses a lot (maybe too much) on errors that players make. Newman has racked up the possessions, but also given away two goals from really basic errors.

      I think Horse will really remember the two goals when he picks the team for next week – although I hope not, because the Swans are a better team with Newman there!
