Richmond do not want to drop another match after their poor showing against North, but against Geelong it’s difficult seeing them winning  this game. Another loss would leave the Tigers still on 7 wins, and with 8 teams between  5 and 7 wins each it’s getting congested to claim a spot in the eight.


Adelaide will also want to win this game to avoid the crush existing between the teams placed 12th to 5th as a loss will see their place in the eight perilous. GWS you expect to win.


And, as with the Roos, can a change of coach change the fortunes of the Blues? They may come out all fired up and surprise the Lions but hard to see. You never know though!


Sydney’s season is all but over, and certainly a loss to the Eagles leaves them looking at next year. However, the next wave of Swans coming through have performed admirably over the past few weeks, and at home may just surprise the Eagles.


Traditional foes Collingwood and Melbourne fight it out on the Queen’s Birthday Holiday and Melbourne will be desperate for a win. Their year has been disastrous so far after promising so much last year. Collingwood after losing to Freo will be out to redeem themselves.


Will the Roos be able to carry on their form from last week or will the honeymoon have worn off? Big test for them but Gold Coast are struggling so Roos should win.
