AFL Round 22 Tips and Previews:
Sydney Swans v Hawthorn Hawks (7.50PM Sydney Time, August 30):
Grand Final replay number two, and how important is this game heading into the finals for both clubs. The Swans have been really hurt by injuries this season, but have held their form quite well. That was until last week when they took on a rampant Geelong unit, who put on a football clinic at Simonds Stadium. They need some of their big guns back, including Goodes, Jetta and Sam Reid this week as they gear up to take on the Hawks, with whom they'll probably play again in week one of the finals at the MCG, so this is a really good test for both clubs. The Hawks were scratchy, again, but they still were good enough to beat North Melbourne on Saturday. Got to tip Hawthorn.
St Kilda Saints v Fremantle Dockers (1.45PM Sydney Time, August 31):
Geelong Cats v Brisbane Lions (2.10PM Sydney Time, August 31):
Geelong. Brisbane do deserve a mention, but they simply won't be beating the Cats.
Port Adelaide Power v Carlton Blues (4.40PM Sydney Time, August 31):
We really want to keep this short and go for Port Adelaide, because Carlton and their effort against the Bombers on Saturday night was just pathetic, disgusting and embarrassing. Full credit to the Bombers, but Carlton should have won by five or six goals. As for the Power, they really had no chance against Fremantle on Saturday night and the match was done and dusted by quarter time. They want to seal a spot in the eight with a win here, and with it being the final ever game at AAMI Stadium, the crowd will be right behind the Power, and that should get them home here.
Essendon Bombers v Richmond Tigers (7.40PM Sydney Time, August 31):
Another Saturday night thriller featuring the Bombers. This preview was written late Sunday night, and at the time, James Hird is coach, but if the mail is right, then Hird won't be coaching the team here on Saturday night as they take on the Tigers. Essendon found something from absolutely nowhere against Carlton, who pretty much threw the game away by being quite wasteful in front of goal. Richmond will be up and about thanks to a demolition job of the GWS Giants at Skoda on Sunday afternoon, winning by 114 points. Can Essendon get up again after what will more than likely be another turbulent week? We think not hence tipping Richmond.
West Coast Eagles v Adelaide Crows (7.40PM Sydney Time, August 31):
This is a real flip of the coin game. West Coast have been dreadful in their past two games, in particular last week against Collingwood. They just couldn't compete with the Pies and were shot at quarter time. In saying that, they are back home for the final game of the season, and farewell a couple of players who are hanging up the boots. As for the Crows, they did as they pleased against a pretty ordinary Demons outfit at AAMI Stadium, winning by over 10 goals. The Eagles do have home ground advantage, but we just see more in the Crows, so we'll tip them to finish their 2013 season with a win on the road.
Gold Coast Suns v GWS Giants (1.10PM Sydney Time, September 1):
Gold Coast. Next.
Collingwood Magpies v North Melbourne Kangaroos (3.20PM Sydney Time, September 1):
Early markets have Collingwood at $1.50...Isn't Christmas in December? Fair dinkum, that is a gift for punters, because the Pies are the best of the rest when it comes to the competition and the ladder. There is the Hawks, Cats, Swans and Dockers, then there is the rest of the pack, which is headed by Collingwood. They dismantled West Coast on Friday night, with the most impressive part of the win being their defensive pressure, which was on par with their win against the Swans a few weeks prior. They want to head into the finals in a purple patch, so don't expect them to go easy against the Kangas, who were close, but not good enough against the Hawks. That really sums up their season. They put themselves in a winning position, but they don't have the killer punch. Tipping the Pies as the best bet of the round.
Western Bulldogs v Melbourne Demons (4.40PM Sydney Time, September 1):
Western Bulldogs. And that's the 2013 home and away season done and dusted. Bring on the finals!
