Howdy Footy Tippers,
Cannot believe I am sitting here writing the review for round 21! Where has this season gone?!?
This round doesn’t seem so easy to tip but here goes for some of my quick thoughts..
Western Bulldogs v Greater Western Sydney
Great game to start off the round. I hear the Bulldogs “are back to their best form” after beating the likes of Carlton, the Suns and Brisbane.. I’m not sure beating 3 of the bottom 4 teams qualifies as being “back”?
Giants have only won 1 out of their past 5 and they have lost big Mummy. With Green back though I think they will be too good for the Dogs.

Sydney v Fremantle
How about that win at the Cattery?! Swans are on fire at the moment are will be far too good for the Dockers, this win will bring them even closer to that top 4 finish.
Swans by 42pts
Geelong v Richmond
This has got to be the hardest game of the round to tip and will be an epic clash between 3rd and 4th. I was 100% certain the Tigers were going to win this until I seen it was at the cattery, now I am about 60% sure. No Selwood, no Duncan, no Hawkins, but Dangerfield is back. Now usually I would say 1 player doesn’t make a team, but he’s that good that he could win the game off his own back. The Tigers supporters are out of the woodwork and hoping for a top 2 finish.

Brisbane v Gold Coast
The Queensland clash that no one cares about..
Lions by 11pts
Essendon v Adelaide
This is the type of game you want for a Satdee night.. The highest scoring team against the third, so expect goals a plenty. Crows are coming off a BRILLIANT WIN to that other mob in SA and the Bombers are in mourning from Jobe’s retirement news. I think this will be close as the Bombers are hard to beat at Etihad, and if I learnt anything the Crows do tend to break our hearts when they need that 1 “easy” game win to cement their top 2 spot. But the past is the past and I’m going all in this year.
Crows by 15pts
West Coast Eagles v Carlton
Eagles let me down last week and I am losing faith that they are a good footy team. Lucky they have Carlton this week at home to keep their sniff at the top 8 intact.
Eagles by 30pts
Melbourne v St Kilda
This is a MUST win game for both teams. I think this game will be super close and come down to the last 3 mins. Flip a coin for this one
Saints by 5pts
Hawthorn v North Melbourne
Battle of the tassie teams – with Hodge back North have no hope.
Hawks by 34pts
Port Adelaide v Collingwood
Crows absolutely annihilated Port last week because they are RUBBISH…Pies to win!

Hope you all have a good weekend J
