2010 VFL Round 7 Preview
Body: 

After a great win by the Vics in Perth on the weekend it is now back to VFL action this weekend with Round 7 here is the preview

SATURDAY
Geelong(1-5 11th) vs Port Melbourne(4-2 6th) at Skilled Stadium 10:40am
(Curtain Raiser to Geelong vs Melbourne AFL match)
Last time they met: Rd 4 2009 at TEAC Oval. Port Melbourne 14-15(99) def Geelong 12-15(87).
Geelong's only win this year was against was the Dolphins while the Borough are going ok with 4-2 record to start the season and you would think on form that the Borough will be too strong for the Cats even at Geelong.
STATS
1st Quarter: Geel 2-4(12th) Port 2-4(11th)
2nd Quarter: Geel 4-2(4th) Port 3-3(6th)
3rd Quarter: Geel 2-4(9th) Port 3-3(7th)
4th Quarter: Geel 2-4(10th) Port 4-2(4th)
My Tip: Port Melbourne by 16pts

Sandringham(4-2 7th) vs North Ballarat(5-1 1st) at Trevor Barker Oval 1:10pm (Live ABC1 TV)
(Reserves Curtain Raiser starts at 10:10am)
Last time they met: Rd 20 2009 at Eureka Stadium. North Ballarat 12-10(82) def Sandringham 8-8(56).
Sandringham have lost their last 2 while the Roosters have been on a roll as of late and clearly the form of the competition. The Zebras are hard to beat at home but the Roosters look dangerous again and should win this in a tight one.
STATS
1st Quarter: Sand 4-2(2nd) Nth Ball 4-2(3rd)
2nd Quarter: Sand 1-5(14th) Nth Ball 1-5(13th)
3rd Quarter: Sand 5-1(2nd) Nth Ball 6-0(1st)
4th Quarter: Sand 3-3(9th) Nth Ball 5-1(2nd)
My Tip: North Ballarat by 9pts

Williamstown(5-1 2nd) vs Box Hill Hawks(3-3 8th) at Williamstown 2pm (3WBC)
(Reserves curtain raiser at 11am)
Last time they met: Rd 14 2009 at Williamstown. Williamstown 11-19(85) def Box Hill Hawks 9-8(62).
Williamstown are another side in good form while the Hawks form has been very much up and down this season. Willy at himne to win.
STATS
1st Quarter: Will 3-3(8th) BHH 6-0(1st)
2nd Quarter: Will 5-1(2nd) BHH 2-4(12th)
3rd Quarter: Will 2-4(8th) BHH 5-1(4th)
4th Quarter: Will 5-1(1st) BHH 2-4(11th)
My Tip: Williamstown by 20pts

Northern Bullants(2-4 9th) vs Coburg Tigers(1-5 12th) at NAB Oval,Preston 2pm
(Reserves curtain raiser starts at 11am)
Last time they met: Rd 19 2009 at Preston. Northern Bullants 23-12(150) def Coburg Tigers 6-9(45).
A big game for both teams needing a win to stay in touch with the top 8. Bullants have had a lot of closes games but not been able to get over the line while the Tigers have been disappointing this year with the only win being against Box Hill. Bullants to win at home.
STATS
1st Quarter: Nth Bull 2-3-1(9th) Cob Tig 2-4(10th)
2nd Quarter: Nth Bull 5-1(2nd) Cob Tig 3-3(8th)
3rd Quarter: Nth Bull 3-3(7th) Cob Tig 0-6(14th)
4th Quarter: Nth Bull 3-3(7th) Cob Tig 3-3(8th)
My Tip: Northern Bullants by 21pts

Gold Coast(1-4-1 10th) vs Collingwood(4-2 5th) at Frankhauser Reserve,Southport 2pm
(Curtain Raisers Surfers Paradise vs Coolangatta Tweed Heads reserves at 9:15am,Seniors at 11:15am)
1st meeting between these 2 sides
The Coasters are coming off their first win against the Cats in their last game and come up against the other AFL stand alone side in Collingwood who are coming off a massive win against Frankston. This should be a great game maybe the Pies just.
STATS
1st Quarter: GC 3-3(7th) Coll 3-1-2(4th)
2nd Quarter: GC 2-4(11th) Coll 3-3(5th)
3rd Quarter: GC 2-4(11th) Coll 2-4(10th)
4th Quarter: GC 1-4-1(12th) Coll 3-2-1(6th)
My Tip: Collingwood by 3pts

SUNDAY
Werribee(0-5-1 14th) vs Frankston(1-5 13th) at Avalon Airport Oval,Werribee 2pm
(Reserves curtain raiser starts at 2pm)
Last time they met: Rd 14 2009 at Frankston. Frankston 14-7(91) def Werribee 10-8(68).
The battle of cellar dwellers should give Werribee who have been very disappointing this year their best chance for a win. While Frankston have had a week off they desperatly needed after a horror month since the Coburg win where they have lost by 380pts in their last 4 game. Werrribee to win at home.
STATS
1st Quarter: Werr 1-4-1(13th) Fston 1-5(14th)
2nd Quarter: Werr 3-3(9th) Fston 3-3(10th)
3rd Quarter: Werr 1-5(13th) Fston 2-4(12th)
4th Quarter: Werr 1-4-1(13th) Fston 0-6(14th)
My Tip: Werribee by 17pts.

Bendigo Bombers(5-1 4th) vs Casey Scorpions(5-1 3rd) at Queen Elizabeth Oval,Bendigo 2pm
Last time they met: Rd 12 2009 at Casey Fields. Casey Scorpions 21-17(143) def Bendigo Bombers 5-2(32).
This is match of the round. Both teams have had great starts to the season. Who would have believed Bendigo would be going for 6 wins in a row and I think at home they could do it but it will tight.
STATS
1st Quarter: Bend 3-2-1(5th) Casey 3-2-1(6th)
2nd Quarter: Bend 3-3(7th) Casey 4-2(3rd)
3rd Quarter: Bend 5-1(3rd) Casey 4-2(5th)
4th Quarter: Bend 4-2(5th) Casey 4-1-1(3rd)
My Tip: Bendigo Bombers by 4pts.

RESERVES stand alone game this weekend
