That’s another round of footy completed! Who can stop the Scott twins? Are the Giants the real deal? What’s up with Richmond? All that and more in this week’s edition of winners and losers.
Winners: Brad and Chris Scott
Both coaches are sitting pretty at this stage of the season at one and two on the ladder and they could well be facing off as first and second when they meet in round 11. Round 6 saw both coaches have very contrasting wins with North getting a scrappy win over the Bulldogs, while the Cats inflicted a 120-point thumping on the Suns.
These two coaches were definitely under the pump during pre-season for very different reasons, but both have risen to the occasion and are now looking very good indeed heading into the coming weeks.
Loser: Quality of football on Friday night
Friday night was built up quite well, with one and two facing each other under the roof at Etihad. The hype was big, the attendance was outstanding, the footy not so much, with a total of 15 goals kicked.
Now both of these sides want to play in a stand-alone Good Friday match next year and although they pulled a strong crowd of 47,000, they need to produce better footy if they want to score that big fixture. At the moment they have almost got it and it will be huge financial boost if they do manage to secure a Good Friday match.
