Round 10: Celebrating the Sir Doug Nicholls Round

We start Round 10 of the AFL Footy season as we celebrate Sir Doug Nicholls Round and all the inspirational indigenous players.
Friday night footy and we go up to the SCG where the Swans take on the inform Pies.  This is a tough game to tip as Sydney have won their last 2 games and are showing good signs of a form revival, even without Buddy Franklin. I’m going to stick with Collingwood as form across their team is hard to close down. Pies by 16 points.
5 games on Super Saturday starting with Hawthorn taking on Port Adelaide in Launceston.  The Hawks don’t lose to many games on this oval, so I’ll stick with their winning trend. Hawks by 21 points.
Western Bulldogs take on North Melbourne at MRVL Stadium and the Kangaroo’s are to inconsistent to tip so it’s the Bulldogs to win by 15 points for me.
The Adelaide Crows take on the West Coast Eagles at Adelaide Oval and the weather predictions are not going to be favourable ….so the ball will spend more time on the ground and I feel the Crows are a better contested ball side than the Eagles – so I’m tipping the Crows by 16 points.
Gold Coast take on top of the ladder Geelong at Metricon Stadium and whilst the Sun’s have been better, it’s hard to tip against the best team in the competition right now. Geelong by 32 plus points.
Richmond take on Essendon at the MCG in the Dream Time game which will be a Block Buster!  I still see Essendon not playing there best footy and Richmond winning with key players out. Dustin Martin back to his Brilliant best will be to much to handle for the Bombers. Tigers by 28 points.
3 games on Sunday to finalise round 10 and we are back at the MCG with Melbourne who nearly had a shock win against the Eagles in Perth last week, they take on GWS who continue to have a poor record at the MCG. I was impressed with Melbourne’s contested ball game last week and I feel they will bring this against the Giants. Melbourne to win by 12 points.
St Kilda take on the struggling Blue’s at MRVL Stadium and it’s hard to tip Carlton with 1 win from 9 games. Saints by 24 points.
Last game of the round and it’s in Perth with the Fremantle Dockers taking on the inform Brisbane Lions.  This will be an exciting game, and with Lachie Neale returning to play against his old team should be an interesting contest. I’m going to tip Fremantle, however they will need to use the ball better especially in the forward line. Fremantle by 19 points.
Have a great weekend and enjoy the footy.
