Round 18 – Crikey!: Another cracking round of footy!

Round 18


Adelaide v Essendon 7 v 8

Richmond v Port Adelaide  5 v 9

Carlton v Gold Coast. 17 v 18

GWS v Collingwood. 6 v 2

Brisbane v North Melbourne 3 v 12

Fremantle v Sydney 13 v 14

Geelong v Hawthorn 1 v 11

Melbourne v WCE. 16 v 4

St Kilda v Western Bulldogs 15 v 10


Half the teams in the 8 play one another, 3 teams sitting just outside the 8 play teams in the 8, while the Bulldogs knocking on the 8 play a team well below them.


As I see it, the results from these games will impact upon the final 8, and in reality each of those teams is in a position to win their game but who will?.


Carlton v GC will have no bearing on the 8, and the loser of Freo v Sydney will have snuffed out whatever slim chance they had for the 8 while that winner relies on results from other games to remain in the hunt. WCE will make the Demons season even more forgettable.


An interesting round indeed!
