Sydney v St.Kilda – You have to fear for the Saints here, making the daunting trip up to Sydney to play the premiership favourites on their own hunting ground, the SCG. The Swans will be eager to edge their percentage higher, to jump the Hawks. Struggling to see anything other than a hiding.
Swans by 100.
Gold Coast v Port Adelaide – Both teams have been on the slide in the last month, although the Power did show a fair bit against the Swans last week. Director of coaching, Shaun Hart put the pressure on Chad Wingard to find some consistency within games to become a four-quarter player during the week. Plenty of SuperCoaches will be hoping he does after a very underwhelming season. Congratulations to Travis Boak, who plays his 150th AFL game. He went to town against the Suns last time out with a 166-point match
Power by 26.
Essendon v West Coast – It goes without saying that both sides will be desperate for a victory here to stay in contention for the remaining 6-8th placings. As a result, it should be one of the games of the round. The Dons welcome back Jobe Watson and Michael Hibberd and should help to arrest a form slide that has seen them lose their last two matches.
