AFL > Week 11 – Fixtures and Previews

Shorter week this week with  6 teams on the bye week; consequently, we have just 6 matches, 2 of which look done and dusted. Last week saw mostly obvious results with just the Tigers winning big at Eagles really surprising; Bulldogs were a surprise to some (not us here as they were our tip of the week!)
Hawks and Cats both won again unsurprisingly and are now 9-1 for the season – Hawks ahead on percentage. Sydney Swans have ominously and quietly crept up to 3rd and are looking much more the part now and Dockers have managed to sneak into the top 4 as well; these 2 both have 7 wins and a tie as they shared the points a few weeks back.

Current table:

Week 11 Fixtures:

Essendon Bombers V Carlton Blues (Fri)
GWS Giants v Geelong (Sat)
Adelaide Crows v Sydney Swans (Sat)
Gold Coast Suns v North Melbourne Kangaroos (Sat)
St Kilda Saints v West Coast Eagles (Sun)
Melbourne Demons v Collingwood Magpies (Mon)

Byes > Richmond, Hawthorn, Port, Bulldogs, Brisbane, Fremantle

Summary >

Geelong by plenty and Pies by quite a few – they are the easy calls
Bombers should be too good for the Blues despite a few wobbles from the hosts recently and the improved results of Carlton
Swans will expect to pick up the points in Adelaide
Kangaroos are the better team but the Suns will be buoyed by holding the Cats until the 3rd quarter last week – whether they can produce it for all 4 remains to be seen but they will be pushing Roos all the way 
Eagles will want to improve their 5-5 and bounce after last week’s poor effort; Saints are really struggling however and this may well be a good chance for the visitors
