Yes... six games stretched out over 4 days, in an AFL approved bore-a-thon. One game on Sunday, and one on the public holiday Monday... such a waste. The weekend should have been loaded up with more games, and the byes run through normal weekends.
Worth us noting that we went very close on the tip;
- Geelong by 14pts, with an actual margin of 12pts (out by 2), and
- Sydney by 1 pt, with an actual margin of 4pts (out by 3), and
- Hawthorn by 43pts, with an actual margin of 46pts (out by 3).
Not a bad record again!
Our tip return this week... 5 from 6, missing Fremantle's win at the MCG. Strike rate boosted right back up to 71% (or 68/96)
Eleventh round results:
One game in the Blow-out Bin this week, as the Saints demoralised the Suns kiddies by 95 points.
A moderate week sees the Swans gain 7pts this week, after that ho-hum thriller that never should have been game vs the Bombers.
Otherwise...no other meaningful gains.
Its the Suns, still declining and dropping another 17pts down the chute. Seemingly never to improve, even with a season under the belt.
Otherwise...no other meaningful losses.
Only 12 teams in action, and only 2 change places... Freo knock off Richmond at the MCG and take back 13th spot, in amongst the volatile positions of 8 to 13.
Of note... Hawthorn nudge closer to the top 2, the Saints are 1.1 points away from Carlton in 4th, and Gold Coast drift further toward the edge.
