Round 17 Preview
[b]Here is an early look at Round 17[/b] [b]SATURDAY[/b] [b][i]Tasmania(4-12 14th) vs Frankston(8-8 6th) at Aurora Stadium 10:15am(AFL C/R)[/i][/b] [b]Last Meeting:[/b] Round 8 May 25th at Frankston. Frankston 23-23(161) def Tasmania 15-5(95) Frankston are playing well after coming off good home wins against Port Melbourne and Bendigo while Tasmania have been thumped by Sandringham and Williamstown. The Devils future in the competition is on the line in the last month of the season but the Dolphins should win comfortably. [b][i]Collingwood(5-11 12th) vs Werribee(9-7 5th) at MC Labour Park 1pm[/i][/b] [b]Last Meeting:[/b] Round 8 May 24th at Werribee. Werribee 18-18(126) def Collingwood 10-11(71) A danger game for the Tigers it is a must win if they want a top 4 spot. They are coming off a big loss to the Borough while the Pies are in good form at the moment after wins against Bendigo and Geelong. Werribee narrowly. [b][i]Port Melbourne(12-4 3rd) vs Williamstown(13-3 2nd) at TEAC Oval 1:10pm(ABC1,Casey Radio)[/i][/b] [b]Last Meeting:[/b] Round 3 April 12th at Williamstown. Williamstown 24-7(151) def Port Melbourne 17-12(114) This is the match of the round. How big can a game get between the two arch rivals? Both teams are coming off massive wins and are in great form. This will be a cliffhanger.A huge crowd will rock up to Port Melbourne for this one. [b][i]Coburg Tigers(8-8 7th) vs Northern Bullants(8-8 8th) at Coburg City Oval 2pm(3XX 1611)[/i][/b] [b]Last Meeting:[/b] Round 2 April 6th at Preston. Northern Bullants 16-11(107) def Coburg Tigers 15-14(104) Another huge game. A win for either side and they will consolidate their spot in the top 8. A loss and they may drop out of top 8 depending on how the Zebras go. This game should also draw a big crowd. [b][i]Bendigo Bombers(5-11 11th) vs Box Hill Hawks(4-12 13th) at Queen Elizabeth Oval 2pm[/i][/b] [b]Last Meeting:[/b] Round 9 June 9th at Box Hill. Bendigo Bombers 18-11(119) def Box Hill Hawks 12-12(84) Not much more than pride riding on this game. It should be a close contest between two evenly matched teams. [b]SUNDAY[/b] [b][i]Casey Scorpions(10-6 4th) vs North Ballarat(13-3 1st) at Casey Fields 2pm(Casey Radio)[/i][/b] [b]Last Meeting:[/b] Round 10 2007 May 25th at Austar Arena. North Ballarat 16-13(109) def Casey Scorpions 14-11(95) Casey were surprisingly beaten by Box Hill and need to get back on the winners list with teams below them starting to catch them in the race for 4th spot and the double chance. North Ballarat are continuing to play good football and will go in as favorites but it will be a tight one. [b][i]Sandringham(7-9 9th) vs Geelong(6-10 10th) at Trevor Barker Oval 2pm(3XX 1611)[/i][/b] [b]Last Meeting:[/b] Round 1 2007 7th April at Sandringham. Sandringham 23-11(149) def Geelong 20-19(139). A huge game for the Zebras a win and they will be back in top 8 at either the Bullants or Coburg Tigers expense but a loss and they will still be a game outside the top 8. The Cats suffered a shock loss to the Pies last week they are still a slight chance of making the finals but they need to win every game from here on in. For those that like stats it will be 16 months or 498 days since these 2 sides last met in a VFL match.
