Game Chat – Melbourne v Sydney

Written by Father Dougal on August 12 2018

WHERE AND WHEN: MCG, Sunday, August 12, 3.20pm AEST

SUMMARY
In terms of games with significant finals ramifications attached, none come bigger than Sunday’s contest at the MCG. The Demons’ final three-game stretch is as tough any team in the competition, with the Eagles (away) and Greater Western Sydney (MCG) to come, so a win over Sydney on home soil would be enormous for the team’s belief. Despite the possible return of Dan Hannebery from a calf injury, Melbourne should have a significant advantage in the midfield with the Demons ranked No.1 in the AFL for contested possessions and centre clearances. Stopping Lance Franklin up forward and curbing the influence of Aliir Aliir down back will be crucial to the Demons’ chances of winning this game. Sydney’s form line has been up and down in the past month but as always John Longmire’s side will be no easy beats.

  5. D’s playing a very polite game today , had a few chances to make the Swannies cop an impact for their possessions but have pulled out ,
    recon the need to get rough n tough this Q ,
    Gawn , Tmac & Oliver gna have to turn it on too , or the Swans r gna turn into vultures & pick that D’s carcass clean ..
