AFL Previews – Preliminary Finals

By Roy Horgan

Geelong v Sydney – Catch the game at these Sports Bars around Saigon…

Prelim finals always seem to deliver cracking games and I expect this one to be no exception. I really can’t pick who the favourites are here and am predicting this game to be a very close encounter. The Cats have the home ground advantage and also should be fresh after the week off but the Swans are the better team on paper although a few key injuries to McVeigh, Mills and Rohan over the last week or two may take their toll. Kennedy from the Swans is also under an injury cloud and Tippett may or may not be back for this one. Home ground advantage, the week off for the Cats and the Swans injury worries see both these teams dead even as far as I’m concerned. The midfield battle between Danger and Selwood versus the Swans on-ball stars is going to be epic and a lot will hinge on how well Franklin and Hawkins go in their respective forward lines. Year after year the prelims deliver far superior games to the grand final and I’m tipping this to be one of the best games we’ll see all year. Bring it on!

It’s billed as the ‘Battle of the Midfields’ but the key forwards could certainly have a say!

Greater Western Sydney v Western Bulldogs – Catch the game at these Sports Bars around Saigon…

The Dogs have found form at exactly the right time of year and will be flying high after last weeks incredible win over one of the greatest teams of all time in the Hawks. But will their new found form and confidence be enough to overcome the Giants who are on an absolute tear? If the Giants play their best footy I honestly can’t see them being beaten by anyone. They have absolutely no weaknesses in their game and they are equally brutal on the inside as they are slick and smooth on the outside of the contest. Home ground advantage for the Giants also gives them an extra edge and the only thing going against them is the loss of Stevie J to suspension. However, if the pressure of a prelim final gets to the Giants then the Bulldogs will definitely make them pay. The Dogs have been stellar at applying pressure on the opposition through this finals series and have been hurting teams with their ball movement from defense through to the forward line. With the Bont looking as good as any player in the league right now and Stringer back and having a major impact the Dogs are certainly a chance if GWS don’t step up.

The Package is back and the Giants better be at their best to continue their charge towards a GF birth.
