AFL Teamsheets: Finals week 2

8:00 pm Thursday 10/07/2016

Only two games this week, but arent they two crackers! The finals are anyones with two favourites swans and hawks forced to use up their second chances, and have to play crows and dogs showing great form. Big outs for Swans with Kurt Tippett and rising star Callum Mills injured, and unlucky Lin Jong is out for the dogs with a broken collar bone.

Jordan Lewis absolutely racked up the stats in a nailbiter of a final last week. He has had an up and down year but for matchday I think chucking a C next to his name isnt the worst option.

haus
Luke Dahlhaus has been pretty since his comeback from injury, and his form last week was part of the doggies demolition of the Eagles. Seems a sure bet to slot in most forward lines in matchday.

I dont know how I went past mainstay Dan Hannebery last week.The seasoned campaigner seems to pull his finger out in finals campaigns, and looks that way this year as well. He’ll be my captain in matchday this week.

For Crows, a seemingly obvious call, with Tippet out and young ruck rookie Naismith looking to do the heavy lifting for Swans, The dominance of Same Jacobs could be an issue for the swans.

  • This’ll an interesting round. I’ve tipped Dogs and Crows to get up.

    But on the flip side – all bar one Crow for MatchDay.
