Dockers Looking The Goods

Your Ad Here

For the first time in their history, the Fremantle Dockers are looking to win their first three games of the season. They have already had good wins against the Crows and Bombers but this week against Geelong will be a massive test for where they are as a side.

There are actually two other games involving the other four undefeated sides of the competition to date. Collingwood is taking on St Kilda in a clash of two of the traditional Victorian powerhouses. Both are in good form and both would be desperate to win this game. The betting odds are pretty even for both sides, but if anything St Kilda are slight favorites.

There is no love lost between the two, even less so since Luke Ball switched to Collingwood in the off-season.

The other game involving two unbeaten teams sees Brisbane to travel to Adelaide to take on Port Power. Both sides have defeated the West Coast but the Lions took out Carlton in round one as opposed to the Power who toppled North Melbourne in their opening game. The Lions look good with Jonathan Brown and Brendan Fevola in tandem. They will be a handful for the opposition back-men all over the league. Out of the Melbourne spotlight, Fevola seems to have settled down.

Normally Carlton taking on Essendon is a huge match – it still will be will Essendon winless and Carlton on just the one win. Neither would want to give the other the satisfaction of going down to the other. The has been much criticism of coach Matthew Knights and expect that to intensify should they lose to their arch-rival.

Sydney are flying high after their win against the Crows in Adelaide and complacency should be their biggest obstacle against a Richmond side who are clearly not good enough.

Melbourne takes on Adelaide in a massive game for both sides. Neither side has won yet and would love to put a stop to that now, especially the Crows who would be expected to dominate the more inexperienced Demons.

The same will happen when the Kangaroos play the Eagles. Both are also looking for their first win of season 2010.

The Bulldogs meet Hawthorn in a game that should promise much. Neither side is at its best and it will be interesting to see how Hawthorn handles Barry Hall.

It should be a fascinating Round 3 of AFL football.
