Round 1 of the 2018 AFL Season

Round 1 and let the Games Begin!!

Welcome back to the World Famous West Coast Poly Tipping Competition and we start with the Premiers Richmond unveiling their Premiership Flag for the 1st time in 37 Years before they take on Carlton at the MCG in front of 95,000 plus people.

Tipping Round 1 is always difficult and they say stick with the home side so obviously I’ll start with the Reigning Premiers Richmond to put on another show at the MCG! Tigers by plenty.

Friday night Footy at Etihad Stadium see’s Essendon who where very aggressive in the trade period last off season take on the Adelaide Crows in what promises to be a great contest so I’m tipping Essendon at Home.

4 games on Super Saturday starting with St’ Kilda Vs Brisbane and these 2 teams looking to improve this year and start to challenge for the top 8. St’ Kilda to win by 21 points at home.

Port Adelaide, another club who traded aggressively in the off season are at home against the Fremantle Dockers and Port will be very, very hard to beat in Adelaide this season so Power by 30 plus points.

Gold Coast Suns take on North Melbourne and many people are tipping these 2 teams for the wooden spoon so expect a hard fought contest between the 2 sides so they can get a win 1st up cause I don’t expect them to have to many in season 2018. Gold Coast to win.

Hawthorn take on Collingwood at the MCG and you can sense there is massive pressure on Nathan Buckley and the Pies even before the 1st bounce!! Hawks to win as they have to much class and experience for Pies who haven’t really showed any form in the preseason.

3 games to round off Sunday and we start with the Premiership Fancies GWS Giants take on the Western Bulldogs who will want to bounce back from last years Premiership Hangover. The Giants elite young players are a year older and hungry to taste a premiership. Giants to win at home 1st up.

Melbourne who just missed out on the Finals have spoken a lot in the preseason about making the top 8 in season 2018 so now is the time to deliver. They take on Geelong at the MCG and I feel the Demons can cause a bit of an upset and will beat Geelong in the opening round.

Last game of the round and it’s the West Coast Eagles taking on the Sydney Swans at the new Optus Stadium and I feel the Swans have a real good chance to win 1st up as the Eagles have no Kennedy and the have lost 2 very experienced Midfielders in Priddas and Mitchell so I’m tipping against the Home side as I don’t think the new oval will be an advantage for the Eagles for a few weeks yet. Sydney to win by 28 points.

Have a great 1st weekend of AFL footy.
