Round 15 AFL Preview

Andy Tuano ‘s tips and Preview going into Round 15.

Carlton vs Collingwood: Collingwood haven’t played well against Carlton, losing twice last year, including the thumping in Round 3 and the unexpected of Round 16. All things point to a 30 point Carlton Victory (sorry Danielle Eid)

GWS vs Western Bulldogs: Two good wins in a row this year from the Dogs have been the only gold in a team that’s still rebuilding. But then again, the Giants are building themselves. Tough, but I’m a risk taker, so I’ll have the Giants for win 1 in 15, 2013. GWS by 16.

North Melbourne vs Richmond: The Tiger army is roaring in 4th spot, and despite a good North Melbourne Team, the Tigers should win comfortably. The Roos have been known to blow big leads late. Tigers by 27.

Brisbane vs Gold Coast: Gold Coast look like a new team this year, with their brand of football impressing many. Their army will be gathered at the Gabba, and they should expect an upset. Suns by 5.

Geelong vs Hawthorn: The biggest game of the round, and a massive Crowd at the ‘G. These teams aren’t best friends, and they play a very advanced game of football, with almost no errors. Will Kennett’s curse break? I think it will. Hawks by 22.

Adelaide vs West Coast: Two teams, both outside the 8. Both have played excellent brands of football, but have next to nothing to show for it. They both can make the 8, and one team will rely on the other to lose to give them a stepladder closer (or possibly into) the 8. Adelaide at home. Adelaide by 13.

Melbourne vs Sydney: The Demons, as they have all season, will be looking for effort. 17 cannot simply beat 4, but Neil Craig’s Melbourne look newer and more energetic. The Swans record at the ‘G should worry them, but not a hell of a lot. Swans by 50+

Fremantle vs St.Kilda: My Saints come up against the Dockers. No Riewoldt, No Kosi but Hayes back in, 5th plays 15th. My Saints will look for effort: there’s almost no chance of an upset, especially against a Dockers side at their fort, with some big guns like Pavlich, Sandilands Mundy and Barlow coming into the side. Dockers by 40+

Essendon vs Port: Port have improved: beating Sydney and Collingwood at their own semi- fort. But this is Etihad, and the Bombers love it there, despite 2 out of 3 of their losses coming at under the roof of Etihad (Brisbane and Geelong). I don’t expect an upset, but 3rd vs 7th should provide an absolute cracker! Essendon by 20.
