Last week: 6

Season total: 90

Friday July 24

Carlton v Hawthorn

Etihad Stadium, 7.50pm (All times local time)

It’s a case of Hawthorn by how much in this one. The Blues will be no match for the rampant Hawks who may inflict a triple digit defeat.

Saturday July 25

GWS V Geelong

Startrack Oval, 1.45pm

Huge game for both clubs, with a win for the Giants going close to securing a finals birth, while the Cats can keep their finals hopes alive if they get the points. GWS have never beaten Geelong and they will come very close this week, but Geelong should just prevail in this do or die clash.

Adelaide V Gold Coast

Adelaide Oval, 1.40pm

The Crows were incredible last week. They fought hard for an emotional win in Showdown 39 against the Power. They will use that adrenalin to get over the line against an improved Suns outfit. Expect a good performance from Harley Benell, who will be keen to show his club he deserves a spot on the Suns’ list in 2016.

Richmond V Fremantle

MCG, 4.35pm

What a huge clash! The Tigers inflicted Fremantle’s first loss of the season in round 10, and have been brilliant since then, winning eight of the past nine. The Dockers remain on top, but have been patchy of late. Many have tipped Richmond for the win and playing at the G, it is understandable. However, I’m going with Freo, as they desperately need to win to stay on top of the ladder.

Essendon V Port Adelaide

Etihad Stadium, 7.20pm

Essendon are only one win behind Port on the ladder, but they are streets behind them. The Power should demolish a listless Essendon and keep their ever so slim finals chances afloat.

Brisbane V North Melbourne

Gabba, 7.20pm

I wonder what will be a pass mark for Brisbane this week? Five goals perhaps? They Lions were horrid last week against Melbourne, managing only 4.12 (36) for the entire game. They will want a far better performance this week after surely receiving a blasting from the coach during the week. Irrespective of the manner of their performance, it will not be enough to overcome the Roos.

North Melbourne by 32

Sunday July 26

Western Bulldogs v Collingwood

Etihad Stadium, 1.10pm

Hugely important game for both sides, especially Collingwood, as they risk slipping back even further after dropping our of the eight last week. The Pies will be without Travis Cloke, which will hurt them severely, with forward Jesse White, not up to standard. The Bulldogs will just get over the line against a depleted Magpies outfit.

Western Bulldogs by 18

Melbourne V St. Kilda

MCG, 3.20pm

Melbourne would be happy that they got a win last week, but it was not pretty. They will want to get some revenge for their narrow defeat against Saints earlier this year, when Leigh Montagna scored the winning goal with just seconds remaining. However, St, Kilda should be too strong, after taking it right up to Richmond last week.

St. Kilda by 11

West Coast V Sydney

Another mouth-watering clash for round 17 with second taking on fourth. Sydney have been inconsistent lately and will struggle against the Eagles at Domain Stadium. West Coast surprisingly have not beaten the Swans since 2007, but that will change this week.
