Preview

This match-up could quite easily be game of the round. It almost serves as sudden death for the two sides, with the loser in serious danger of missing the finals.

Essendon weren’t entirely convincing in their win over North Melbourne, but still managed to claim the four points. Keep an eye on Cale Hooker to see how he responds after being heavily criticised for his behaviour against the Roos.

The Dogs claimed a big win last weekend and are now looking to build towards a finals push. They do lose Dale Morris to a broken arm, meanwhile Jake Stringer won’t return for at least another week. Due to this and the potency of the Dons’ forward line, Essendon have a big chance to take the four points.

Tip: Bombers by 11
