Gold Coasts six-game losing streak should have come to an end last week. Up by 39 points against St Kilda, the Suns were cruising. But St Kilda booted the last six goals of the match to snatch a two- point win, effectively saving the short-term future of coach Alan Richardson in the process. Hawthorn crushed Adelaide by 56 points last round, and will aim for another percentage-boosting win. key: Scoring. Gold Coast have struggled to kick big scores this year. Do they have enough firepower to beat the Hawks? tip: Hawks by 48 points. tV: Fox Footy, 1pm tomorrow, University of tasmania stadiUm, 1.15pm haWthoRN GoLD CoASt Followers: mcevoy 7, shiels 26, Breust 22 Inter: Impey 4, morrison 35, henderson 31, Langford 29 Emerg: oBrien 23, miles 42, Brand 30, Pittonet 27 In: Frawley out: Brand Followers: Witts 28, Ainsworth 9, Swallow 24 Inter: Lyons 25, Dawson 45, Rischitelli 35, Lemmens 23 emerg: Brodie 41, Crossley 32, Heron 40, Spencer 43 In: Wright, Dawson out: Bowes (injured), thompson (injured) HARBRoW 5 DAy 12 JoyCE 38 BALLARD 31 LESLIE 21 WELLER 14 SCHoEnFELD 36 MILLER 11 younG 15 HoLMAn 39 LynCH 19 SExton 6 BuRGoyNe 9 RouGheaD 2 PuoPoLo 28 smIth 16 CeGLaR 18 omeaRa 10 GuNstoN 19 mItCheLL 3 hoWe 17 DuRyea 8 sICILy 6 haRDWICk 15 BuRtoN 5 FRaWLey 12 stRattoN 24 AH CHEE 13 WRIGHt 30 MARtIn 4 C: FB: hB: hF: FF: C: FF: HF: HB: FB: 50 50 50 50 Port adelaide v Melbourne Head to Head: Power 19 Demons 13 Last cLasH: Round 18, 2017 - Demons 13.10 (88) d Power 9.11 (65) at the MCG Ladbrokes odds: Power $1.62 Demons $2.35 summary: The Demons were brought crashing back to earth in their 42-point loss to Collingwood. Port Adelaide demolished the Bulldogs by 57 points. Both teams are at 8-4, and this game might prove crucial to their top-four prospects. The Demons axed Charlie Spargo and Cameron Pedersen, and brought in Timothy Smith and Dom Tyson. Port recalled Tom Jonas for Jack Hombsch. key: Stopping Tom McDonald. The Melbourne spearhead has been in hot form this season and booted six goals against the Magpies. He shapes as a crucial figure in this match. tip: Power by 12 points. tV: Southern Cross & Fox Footy, 7pm tonight, adelaide oval, 7.20pm PoRt aDeLaIDe MELBouRnE Followers: Ryder 4, Rockliff 11, ebert 7 Inter: Powell-Pepper 2, marshall 13, howard 32, thomas 48 Emerg: Watts 23, hombsch 36, trengove 19, Johnson 31 In: Jonas out: hombsch Followers: Gawn 11, Melksham 18, Jones 2 Inter: Salem 3, Brayshaw 10, tyson 12, Hannan 19 emerg: Spargo 9, Stretch 15, Weideman 26, Petty 35 In: t Smith, tyson out: Pedersen, Spargo VInCE 23 o MCDonALD 28 JEttA 39 J SMItH 44 HIBBERD 14 LEWIS 6 PEtRACCA 5 VInEy 7 t MCDonALD 25 HARMES 4 HoGAn 1 oLIVER 13 s GRay 46 DIxoN 22 R GRay 9 Boak 1 WesthoFF 39 WINGaRD 20 motLoP 6 WINes 16 PoLeC 21 ByRNe-JoNes 33 CLuRey 17 PIttaRD 29 BoNNeR 26 JoNas 42 houstoN 43 nEAL-BuLLEn 30 t SMItH 38 FRItSCH 31 C: FB: hB: hF: FF: C: FF: HF: HB: FB: 50 50 50 50 brisbane lions v Gws Head to Head: Lions 2, Giants 5 Last cLasH: Round 6, 2018 - Giants 10.17 (77) d Lions 5.13 (43) at Spotless Stadium, Ladbrokes odds: Lions $3.60 Giants $1.30 summary: The Giants bounced back to top form before their bye with a 108-point shellacking of Gold Coast. Brisbane only have one win this year, but they have been plucky at the Gabba, beating Hawthorn and coming close against Collingwood and Gold Coast. The Giants have been boosted by the return of Stephen Coniglio, but lose big man Rory Lobb to a back injury. key: Jeremy Cameron. The Giants spearhead booted six goals from 26 disposals against the Suns. If he gets off the leash again, it could prove painful for Brisbane. tip: Giants by 31 points. tV: Fox Footy, 4pm tomorrow, the gabba, 4.05pm BRIsBaNe LIoNs GWS Followers: martin 12, Berry 13, D Beams 9 Inter: Robertson 18, mayes 32, mathieson 36, mcInerney 46 Emerg: keays 1, Bastinac 4, starcevich 37, Frost 45 In: Walker, mathieson out: mcstay (injured), keays Followers: Simpson 26, taranto 14, Kelly 22 Inter: Whitfield 6, Langdon 17, Himmelberg 27, Finlayson 31 emerg: Bonar 10, Daniels 16, Keeffe 25, Perryman 36 In: Coniglio, Simpson, Finlayson out: Lloyd, Lobb (both injured), Perryman CoRR 35 tAyLoR 15 toMLInSon 20 HAynES 19 DAVIS 1 SHAW 23 GRIFFEn 32 WARD 8 REID 50 DE BoER 24 CAMERon 18 ConIGLIo 3 ChRIsteNseN 3 hIPWooD 30 BaILey 33 RayNeR 16 WaLkeR 14 mCCLuGGaGe 6 tayLoR 28 LesteR 35 ZoRko 15 RICh 10 CutLeR 26 WItheRDeN 29 hoDGe 2 aNDReWs 31 GaRDINeR 27 HoPPER 2 PAtton 12 SHIEL 5 C: FB: hB: hF: FF: C: FF: HF: HB: FB: 50 50 50 50 western bulldoGs v nortH Melbourne Head to Head: Bulldogs 79, Kangaroos 77, drawn 3 Last cLasH: Round 14, 2017 - Bulldogs 15.17 (107) d Kangaroos 16.10 (106) at Etihad Stadium Ladbrokes odds: Bulldogs $5.00 Kangaroos $1.18 summary: The Kangaroos were dealt a huge blow earlier this week when veteran forward Jarrad Waite re-injured his calf. But the situation is far worse at the Bulldogs, whose finals hopes are all but over after four-straight defeats. The Bulldogs look a shadow of the team who won the premiership in 2016, and you have to wonder how they have bottomed out so quickly. The Bulldogs have recalled Dale Morris, Josh Dunkley, Marcus Adams and Aaron Naughton. key: Ben Brown. With Waite set to miss several more weeks, how will Brown stand up? He went goalless in the recent 37-point loss to Geelong. tip: Kangaroos by 23 points. tV: Southern Cross & Fox Footy, 6.30pm tomorrow, etihad stadiUm, 6.55pm WesteRN BuLLDoGs noRtH MELBouRnE Followers: t Boyd 17, mcLean 16, Dunkley 5 Inter: honeychurch 22, adams 25, Naughton 33, R smith 37 Emerg: young 2, Roughead 23, Lynch 36, Jong 46 In: morris, Dunkley, adams, Naughton out: Webb, macrae, Wood (all injured), Biggs Followers: Goldstein 22, Cunnington 10, Higgins 4 Inter: Ahern 15, turner 28, Murphy 40, McDonald 11 emerg: Clarke 13, Morgan 21, Hartung 39, Zurhaar 44 In: Hrovat, Anderson out: Zurhaar, Hartung M WILLIAMS 2 DAW 1 tHoMPSon 16 WRIGHt 19 tARRAnt 25 MACMILLAn 34 DuMont 14 JACoBS 5 HRoVAt 8 AnDERSon 3 WooD 32 AtLEy 18 DahLhaus 6 GoWeRs 26 LIPINskI 27 DaNIeL 35 sChaChe 13 WaLLIs 3 CRoZIeR 9 BoNtemPeLLI 4 huNteR 7 moRRIs 38 CoRDy 12 JohaNNIseN 39 WILLIams 34 tReNGove 8 RIChaRDs 20 SIMPKIn 12 BRoWn 50 ZIEBELL 7 C: FB: hB: hF: FF: C: FF: HF: HB: FB: 50 50 50 50 CollinGwood v Carlton Head to Head: Magpies 124, Blues 127, drawn 4 Last cLasH: Round 3, 2018 - Magpies 16.4 (100) d Blues 11.10 (76) at the MCG Ladbrokes odds: Magpies $1.08 Blues $8.50 summary: The pressure on Carlton coach Brendon Bolton is reaching boiling point after last weeks insipid display against Fremantle. The Blues managed just seven behinds in the first half, and went on to lose by 57 points in front of their home fans. With just one win for the year, Carlton are in crisis mode. The situation is far different at Collingwood, whose 42-point victory over Melbourne has thrust them into the premiership conversation. key: Spirit. Will the Blues fold like a deck of cards, or fight for their coachs future? If they fold, it could get very, very ugly. tip: Magpies by 61 points. tV: Fox Footy, 2.30pm sUnday, mCg, 2.50pm CoLLINGWooD CARLton Followers: Grundy 4, adams 13, treloar 7 Inter(from): appleby 31, Brown 17, Crocker 39, Daicos 26, sier 36, Greenwood 19, mayne 16, oxley 43 In: appleby, Brown, Crocker, oxley, sier out: Wells (injured) Followers: Kreuzer 8, J Silvagni 1, Dow 2 Inter(from): Lang 16, Casboult 41, Graham 32, Kerr 36, Kennedy 7, Rowe 17, Garlett 21, Phillips 34 In: Mullett, Polson, Garlett, Phillips, Kennedy out: Kerridge (groin) PLoWMAn 20 JonES 14 SIMPSon 6 MuLLEtt 18 WEItERInG 23 tHoMAS 39 oBRIEn 4 CRIPPS 9 FISHER 25 LAMB 13 C CuRnoW 30 E CuRnoW 35 thomas 24 Cox 46 stePheNsoN 35 De Goey 2 mIhoCek 41 hoskIN-eLLIott 32 sIDeBottom 22 PeNDLeBuRy 10 PhILLIPs 21 hoWe 38 sChaReNBeRG 12 LaNGDoN 8 mayNaRD 37 DuNN 15 CRIsP 25 PoLSon 29 WRIGHt 46 PEtREVSKI-SEton 5 C: FB: hB: hF: FF: C: FF: HF: HB: FB: Goddard could back up in 2019 ESSENDON is open to Brendon Goddard playing on next year as the 33-year-old continues his strong form. Goddard admitted in a recent Sunday Herald Sun column his playing future was unclear, unaware whether Essendon wanted him to play on. But after finishing second in last years Crichton Medal, Goddard is averaging 24 possessions a game in another strong season. Those discussions will take place close to the end of the year, but Essendon head of football Dan Richardson was yesterday optimistic about his future. Goddard is out of contract along with Tom Bellchambers, Mark Baguley, Josh Green and Shaun McKernan. Bellchambers turns 29 in July and is certain to be contracted given strong form despite his free agency status. We are very open minded. Tom has been terrific and is clearly our number one ruckman, Richardson said. With BJ in any young team its important that you have enough experience around them. So we are certainly very open-minded about the role that Brendon can continue to play beyond this year. The Bombers continue to proceed cautiously with spearhead Joe Daniher, making slow progress with his osteitis pubis. Coach John Worsfold said yesterday that hes a long way off being back playing, given his issues. If Essendon falls from finals contention and he does not make rapid progress there is a real prospect he wont play again this year. Richardson said he would continue with his strengthening program, with surgery a prospect at this point in time.Essendon captain Dyson Heppell gets a kick away despite succumbing to a West Coast tackle in Perth last night Picture: TONY McDONOUGH JON RALPH Demons must adapt without Lever MELBOURNE star Michael Hibberd has conceded it will take time for the Demons defence to learn how to play without Jake Lever. Lever did not travel to Adelaide for tonights clash against Port Adelaide although he will be a regular in Simon Goodwins coaching box in the run to the finals. Lever, who is out for the season with a knee injury, sat with Goodwin for the Queens Birthday loss to Collingwood. Hes got a match-day role now, Hibberd said. He passed a few messages over the course of the (Queens Birthday) game. Its a good opportunity for him to learn. Hes a young leader of the footy club and whether he wants to go down the coaching path after footy, who knows? But he sat in the coachs box (against the Magpies) and Im sure thatd be interesting, especially in a game we got beaten convincingly. Id like to be a fly on a wall and hear what they say at times. Im sure if you make a mistake or two theyd have a thing or two to say, itd be interesting. In their first game without Lever, Hibberd said the Demons felt pretty vulnerable in the backline as a result of Collingwoods midfield dominance. Its hard to replace Jake, Hibberd said. Hes such a good reader of the play and hes good at getting over and helping his teammates. Joel Smiths came in and actu ally did a really good job. He played his role and so weve got something to work with there. Were going to have to get used to playing without Jake, because hes out for the year. But I feel like theres a positive with a young player like Joel Smith coming through. Weve got the one in, one out mantra. We like to think weve got that many players that are ready to come in that are playing really well in the VFL that if one bloke goes down, one comes in and can play a role and do his job. Tonight is just the Demons third Friday night game since 2012. The 8-4 Dees have won their past two matches at Adelaide Oval and their past two matches against the Power.
