Swans Brought Down a Notch by Cats

Your Ad Here

Even though the Sydney Swans were playing good football, they were not playing good enough to defeat Geelong at Skilled Stadium. Down there, you have to play exceptional football and missing a few key players, the Swans just didn’t have enough fire-power. Inversely, the Cats were well-served by the return of Gary Ablett Jr who carved up the Swans.

Elsewhere it was an interesting Round 7 in the AFL. The Dockers continued their excellent start to the season with a win against the Lions in Brisbane. The Dockers aren’t playing like they have previously and look to be somewhat of the real deal. They now host the Magpies in a Friday night blockbuster.

At 6-1, both teams are on top of the ladder and this game should be a massive contest and one of the biggest home and away games Fremantle has ever played in. There are some interesting subplots. As a former coach of the West Coast Eagles, Mick Malthouse has no issue with playing at Subiaco. There is also interest to see how the Dockers will do under the bright lights of Friday night football.

The Bulldogs have had an interesting two weeks – choking against St Kilda and then just getting over te line against the Demons. This weekend they will have an interesting test against the Swans. This will be a better indicator for the Swans where they are at as opposed to the Geelong game.

The Cats now go to Brisbane to take on the Lions. At home they Lions will want to do well but you would think the Cats will have too much purr in them. You would think that nearly all live bets would favor Geelong.

Hawthorn are struggling so they will welcome having to play the hopeless Richmond. At one stage Richmond were a chance against Adelaide but fell in a heap conceding the last eight games. Hawthorn are coming back from a trip to Perth but still you would think they would be too good for the Tigers.

Carlton has to travel to Adelaide to take on a resurgent Port. The Power are playing well and you would think would be too good for the Blues. Essendon were good against Port and maybe could have won but against St Kilda you would think they have no chance. St Kilda are just too good.
