Happy Friday Tippers!!
Darren has asked me to do the Round 16 write up this week, let’s hope I can pick some winners in the season that is out to destroy all tippers hopes and dreams.
Adelaide v Western Bulldogs
Loving all these Friday night games at AO this season, it is going to be cold and wet so if you are going to the game make sure you are all rugged up and unleash your cheering vocals to warm you up. Big Scotty T plays his first game for the year and here’s to hoping he plays well as he is “too old and too slow” to compete in AFL anymore. Both Crows and the Bulldogs aren’t in great form at the moment and if the Doggies lose they could see their chance of a back to back premiership go out the window. Of course I’m tipping the Crows here…

Hawthorn v Greater Western Sydney
I am calling an upset down in Tassie..
Hawks by 5pts
Collingwood v Essendon
A season promising so much for both these two teams has taken a bit of a blow. With the bombers sitting 6-8 and the Pies 5-9 its desperation time, bombers can still fight for the top 8 being only a few games under the Saints. I am backing the bombers ..
Bombers by 17pts
Sydney v Gold Coast
Grablett will miss this games, which brings relief to the Swans supporters who will be pretty confident they can make finals. Swans were never a bottom of the ladder side and now all their injured players are back they have won their past 7 of 8 games. Well make that 8 from their last 9…
Swans by 32pts
Brisbane v Geelong
The Lions are doing pretty well this season and if they want to keep that number one draft pick they better let this one slide. Geelong get Selwood back this week and will be too strong to lose this one.
Cats by 40pts
St Kilda v Richmond
Maddie’s Match will be the Saturday night game not to miss - 4th v 8th, cousin v cousin and both coming off good wins last week. I think Richmond’s midfield is too strong for the Saints with Dusty on his way to a brownlow…
Tigers by 24pts
North Melbourne v Fremantle
Who wins this game? Who really cares? ha ha … I’m sure not a lot of people will be planning their Sunday’s around watching this game. The result will not impact the 8 so I say let’s go with the home team here.
Roo’s by 6pts
Carlton v Melbourne
Melbourne go in favourites to this game, but with their depleted midfield my bets are on the blues for an upset win this this week.
Blues by 9pts
West Coast v Port Adelaide
I am happy to report that Port still haven’t defeated a top 8 team this year. With all the carry on you think that would light a fire under the Peeeeeeear this week, but playing West Coast at home I don’t see them winning this game.

Hope you all have a safe and enjoyable weekend. We will see you again on Monday J
