Sal’s Round 10 Preview (cont’d) – Oh brother!

Greetings All,


No surprises last night and just where are the Crows going?  Nice debut from a couple though.  Tonight we go again!


Ben ($1.31) vs Sam ($4.10)


The Reid brothers go at it tonight in an important game for the Pies to get back on the winners list after losing to both of the Western Australian teams.  Meanwhile Sam’s team needs to show a better performance than last week’s effort against the Saints after a spritely beginning.  Collingwood are missing a few, but Sydney are missing more important ones and lack the depth.  The Pies to get back on track here despite the travel and day less recovery.


Ben ($2.84) vs Max ($1.51)


The King Twins confront each other at different ends of the ground and with teams on different trajectories.  The Saints have the occasional hiccup but for the part Ratten has them playing a great brand of footy and putting wins on the board.   I expect that trend to continue.


Lion Tamed ($3.10) vs Strung Out ($1.42)


Hamstring injuries to Greene and De Boer put quite a hole in the Giants structure, they overcame the loss a Toby early to get the win over the Suns.  How will they fare against the Bombers who were put to the sword by Brisbane in their last outing?  They have had an extra couple of day to get over it also.  So much of the Giants is dependent on attitude and not really sure they have got back on track although the inclusion of Williams certainly helps.  Essendon, though, have to show more after the loss and I expect they will make this a tough encounter and upset the Giants.


Cheers, Sal

    I’m glad to see that Ben Reid limped across the line tonight. Not convincing, but a win is a win.
