Though theyve been competitive in each game, fade-outs have been costly. Lose again and the Roos will be 0-4 for the first time since 1975. They meet a Bulldogs outfit smarting from a shock loss to Fremantle last start and struggling to win the ball in and around the packs. The reigning premiers are ranked last for clearances and centre clearances this season. KeY: The rucks. Norths Braydon Preuss has been superb and with Todd Goldstein, will seek to exploit an obvious rucking weakness in the Dogs side. tip: Bulldogs by seven points. tV: Southern Cross & Fox Footy, 3.30pm (live) TOday, ETihad STadium, 3.50Pm NoRth meLbouRNe Followers: Goldstein 22, Ziebell 7, higgins 4 Inter: swallow 9, atley 18, Preuss 31, Gibson 43 Emerg: Clarke 13, Vickers-Willis 33, Wagner 41 In: thompson, simpkin Out: Durdin, Clarke Followers: Campbell 15, Bontempelli 4, Liberatore 21 Inter: Macrae 11, Cordy 12, C Smith 14, McLean 16 emerg: Biggs 24, Williams 34, Daniel 35 In: C Smith, Dunkley out: Daniel, Biggs sImPkIN 21 thomas 12 hRoVat 8 ADAMS 25 ROBERtS 18 JOHANNISEN 39 maCmILLaN 34 bRoWN 50 CuNNINGtoN 10 SuCKLING 1 WOOD 10 MuRPHy 2 GaRNeR 27 DumoNt 14 tuRNeR 28 HuNtER 7 DAHLHAuS 6 M BOyD 5 haNseN 6 thomPsoN 16 muLLett 17 DuNKLEy 20 CLOKE 13 StRINGER 9 m WILLIams 2 taRRaNt 25 mCDoNaLD 11 JONG 46 t BOyD 17 PICKEN 42 FF: FB: hF: HB: C: C: hb: HF: Fb: FF: WEStERN BuLLDOGS 50 50 50 50 CarltoN v gold Coast Head to Head: Blues 4 Suns 2 Last cLasH: Round 3, 2016 - Suns 13.17 (95) d Blues 5.11 (41) at Metricon Stadium Ubet: Blues $2.10 Suns $1.75 sUMMeRY: Both clubs banked their first wins of the season last weekend, with the Suns demolishing Hawthorn and the Blues downing Essendon. The midfield battles could determine the outcome, with the Suns rated the best centre clearance outfit in the competition. Gold Coast have won just twice in 13 matches at Etihad Stadium, and central to their planning will be how to curb Blues captain Marc Murphy, who is in fine form and averaging almost 33 touches a game. KeY: Gold Coasts champion Gary Ablett responded in style after a week under the spotlight. Does Carlton have someone capable of curtailing him? tip: Suns by 11 points. tV: Fox Sports 503, 6.30pm (live) TOmORROW, ETihad STadium, 6.55Pm CaRLtoN Followers: Casboult 41, Gibbs 4, murphy 3 Inter: White 43, Fisher 25, C Curnow 30, Pickett 33 Emerg: smedts 16, Graham 32, sumner 19 In: C Curnow, Fisher Out: Palmer, kerridge Followers: Witts 28, Hall 33, Barlow 20 Inter: Fiorini 8, Lemmens 23, Bowes 29, Matera 32 emerg: Lonergan 7, Ah Chee 13, Shaw 26 In: Leslie out: thompson (quad) WRIGht 46 kReuZeR 8 J sILVaGNI 1 HARBROW 5 MAy 17 JOyCE 38 thomas 39 WeIteRING 23 PetReVskI-setoN 5 KOLODJASHNIJ 10 LESLIE 21 SAAD 42 e CuRNoW 35 CRIPPs 9 sImPsoN 6 SWALLOW 24 ABLEtt 9 ROSA 3 DoCheRty 15 maRChbaNk 22 WILLIamsoN 31 LyONS 25 LyNCH 19 SExtON 6 maCReaDIe 26 RoWe 17 PLoWmaN 20 MILLER 11 WRIGHt 30 MARtIN 4 FF: FB: hF: HB: C: C: hb: HF: Fb: FF: 50 50 50 50 gWs v Port adelaide Head to Head: Giants 3 Power 4 Last cLasH: Round 18, 2016 - Giants 11.13 (79) d Power 9.6 (60) at Adelaide Oval Ubet: Giants $1.30 Power $3.55 sUMMaRY: The Giants have banked consecutive wins entering this encounter against Port, who have surprised many with their strong early form. The Power lost for the first time this season against Adelaide last weekend and have been hit by a suspension to ruckman Paddy Ryder. His likely replacement Matthew Lobbe is also injured, which leaves the Power short on firepower to match Giant tap-man Shane Mumford. KeY: No player has kicked more goals than Giants forward Jeremy Cameron this season, who is a major threat to Ports unsung defence. tip: Giants by 30 points. tV: Fox Footy, 4pm (live) TOmORROW, manuka Oval, 4.05Pm GWs Followers: mumford 41, shiel 5, Ward 8 Inter: Reid 50, taranto 14, m kennedy 15, Wilson 16 Emerg: himmelberg 27, Perryman 36, Lloyd 38 In: Patton, m kennedy Out: Johnson (knee), Griffen (ankle) Followers: trengove 12, Boak 1, R Gray 9 Inter: Amon 15, Impey 24, White 19, Pittard 29 emerg: Austin 25, Johnson 31, Ah Chee 41 In: White, Pittard out: Ryder (suspension), Eddy smIth 10 Lobb 37 GReeNe 4 ByRNE-JONES 33 CLuREy 17 HOuStON 43 hoPPeR 2 CameRoN 18 PattoN 12 BROADBENt 5 JONAS 42 HARtLEtt 8 hayNes 19 keLLy 22 sCuLLy 9 EBERt 7 WINES 16 POLEC 21 shaW 23 tomLINsoN 20 WILLIams 29 POWELL-PEPPER 2 WEStHOFF 39 WINGARD 20 a keNNeDy 40 CoRR 35 DaVIs 1 S GRAy 46 DIxON 22 yOuNG 11 FF: FB: hF: HB: C: C: hb: HF: Fb: FF: 50 50 50 50 MelbourNe v FreMaNtle Head to Head: Demons 14 Dockers 21 Last cLasH: Round 16, 2016 - Demons 12.15 (87) d Dockers 8.7 (55) at TIO Stadium Ubet: Demons $1.35 Dockers $3.25 sUMMaRY: How much will the loss of influential ruckman Max Gawn hurt Melbourne? Gawns longterm absence because of a hamstring injury opens a gaping hole for the eighth-placed Demons, which Freo ruckman Aaron Sandilands should have little trouble exploiting. Melbournes midfield talent runs deep with talent and they will look to shark Sandilands, who has the most hit-outs in the league this season. KeY: Freo star Nat Fyfe is averaging 30 disposals a game. If the Demons can clamp down on him, most likely via a Bernie Vince tag, theyll be on their way to victory. tip: Demons by 36 points. tV: Fox Footy, 1pm (live) TOmORROW, mCG, 1.15Pm meLbouRNe Followers: spencer 33, tyson 12, Viney 7 Inter: salem 3, hannan 19, Neal-bullen 30, bugg 32 Emerg: trengove 9, o mcDonald 28, t smith 38 In: spencer, bugg, Frost Out: Gawn (hamstring), t smith, o mcDonald Followers: Sandilands 31, Fyfe 7, Mundy 16 Inter: Logue 2, Sheridan 11, Crozier 17, Balic 24 emerg: D Pearce 6, Griffin 12, taberner 20 GaRLett 36 Watts 4 PetRaCCa 5 HuGHES 15 HAMLING 21 SPuRR 34 keNt 16 WeIDemaN 26 haRmes 43 IBBOtSON 5 JOHNSON 37 BLAKELy 19 VINCe 23 oLIVeR 13 stRetCh 15 S HILL 32 NEALE 27 B HILL 9 Jetta 39 FRost 17 JoNes 2 WELLER 14 MCCARtHy 23 LANGDON 26 meLksham 18 t mCDoNaLD 25 huNt 29 WALtERS 10 KERStEN 22 GREy 28 FF: FB: hF: HB: C: C: hb: HF: Fb: FF: FREMANtLE PORt ADELAIDE GOLD COASt 50 50 50 50 adelaide v esseNdoN Head to Head: Crows 17 Bombers 18 Last cLasH: Round 19, 2016 - Crows 22.11 (143) d Bombers 9.7 (61) at Adelaide Oval Ubet: Crows $1.15 Bombers $5.50 sUMMaRY: The Crows are ladder leaders and unbeaten, but must recast their vaunted forward line, with Mitch McGovern and Josh Jenkins injured. But with their midfield, led by ruck Sam Jacobs and the irrepressible Rory Sloane firing, theyll fancy their chances of providing enough attacking entries to kick a winning score. Breaking even in the middle will be vital for the seventh-placed Bombers, who need to tidy up their disposal efficiency to match it with the big boys - theyre ranked 14th in that stat this season. KeY: How will Adelaides Eddie Betts respond to the weeks racism controversy? If hes galvanised to produce a big game, the Bombers are in big trouble. tip: Crows by 44 points. tV: Southern Cross & Fox Footy, 70pm (live) TOmORROW, adElaidE Oval, 7.10Pm aDeLaIDe Followers: Jacobs 24, Douglas 26, Cameron 23 Inter: Lever 6, kelly 8, hampton 17, menzel 32 Emerg: beech 1, Gallucci 7, obrien 43 In: menzel Out: mcGovern (hamstring) Followers: Leuenberger 22, Zaharakis 11, Heppell 21 Inter: Kelly 47, Z Merrett 7, McDonald-tipungwuti 43, Langford 30 emerg: Gleeson 8, Stewart 17, Dea 49 In: Green, McKenna out: Hocking, Gleeson otteN 22 WaLkeR 13 betts 18 AMBROSE 29 HuRLEy 18 MCGRAtH 1 atkINs 21 LyNCh 27 kNIGht 3 BAGuLEy 12 BROWN 28 StANtON 5 maCkay 14 m CRouCh 44 sLoaNe 9 GODDARD 9 WAtSON 4 PARISH 3 smIth 33 haRtIGaN 15 mILeRa 30 FANtASIA 13 HOOKER 26 COLyER 32 LaIRD 29 taLIa 12 bRoWN 16 GREEN 15 DANIHER 6 MCKENNA 45 FF: FB: hF: HB: C: C: hb: HF: Fb: FF: 50 50 50 50 haWthorN v geeloNg Head to Head: Hawks 72 Cats 87 draws 1 Last cLasH: Second qualifying final, 2016 - Cats 12.13 (85) d Hawks 12.11 (83) at the MCG Ubet: Hawks $2.70 Cats $1.47 sUMMaRY: The once-mighty Hawks are winless and appear a shell of the team that lost to the Cats by a whisker in a qualifying final last year. Geelong are in third spot with three consecutive wins but, despite Hawthorns woes, surely no one is game to tip anything but another close fixture between the modern-day rivals. Much will rest on how Hawthorn combat Geelongs feted midfielders Patrick Dangerfield and Joel Selwood, who leads the league for goal assists. KeY: Hawks skipper Jarryd Roughead will need to lead from the front, and hit the scoreboard, for his side to prevail. tip: Cats by 26 points. tV: Southern Cross & Fox Footy, 2.30pm (live) mOnday, mCG, 2.50Pm haWthoRN Followers: mcevoy 7, hodge 15, Rioli 33 Inter(from): obrien 23, sicily 21, Langford 29, hardwick 37, howe 17, henderson 31, hartung 4 In: obrien, hartung, sicily, howe, hardwick Out: omeara (knee), miles Followers: Smith 9, Dangerfield 35, C Guthrie 29 Inter(from): Blicavs 46, Cockatoo 5, Duncan 22, Menegola 27, Murdoch 21, Ruggles 36, thurlow 40 In: Stanley, Cowan, Horlin-Smith, Cockatoo out: McCarthy VICkeRy 27 RouGheaD 2 PuoPoLo 28 StEWARt 44 LONERGAN 13 MACKIE 4 bReust 22 GuNstoN 19 WhIteCRoss 11 tAyLOR 7 HENDERSON 25 tuOHy 2 smIth 16 mItCheLL 3 shIeLs 26 COWAN 18 J SELWOOD 14 HORLIN-SMItH 33 buRtoN 5 bRaND 30 GIbsoN 6 PARSONS 34 StANLEy 1 MOtLOP 32 buRGoyNe 9 FRaWLey 12 stRattoN 24 PARFItt 3 HAWKINS 26 MENZEL 10 FF: FB: hF: HB: C: C: hb: HF: Fb: FF: 50 50 50 50 brisbaNe lioNs v riChMoNd Head to Head: Lions 8 Tigers 17 draws 1 Last cLasH: Round 14, 2016 - Tigers 17.15 (117) d Lions 11.9 (75) at the MCG Ubet: Lions $2.90 Tigers $1.42 sUMMaRY: The Tigers unbeaten start to the season has been underpinned by the red-hot form of Dustin Martin and Trent Cotchin. While both have been big ball-winners, theyre also both ranked in the top 10 in the league for inside 50s. Brisbane, despite their own gun Dayne Beams firing, will be hard-pressed to stop Richmonds dynamic duo, but have shown undoubted improvement under first-year coach Chris Fagan. KeY: Brisbanes ex-captain Tom Rockliff is the leagues leading stoppage and clearance winner. If he can continue that trend, the Lions are a shot of an upset win. tip: Tigers by 26 points. tV: Fox Footy, 4pm (live) Sunday, Gabba, 4.10Pm bRIsbaNe LIoNs Followers: martin 12, D beams 9, Rockliff 38 Inter(from): bastinac 4, bell 7, berry 13, C beams 17, Robertson 18, Close 33, Frost 45 In: bastinac, C beams, Close, Cox Out: barrett Followers: Nankervis 25, Cotchin 9, Caddy 22 Inter(from): Prestia 3, Lennon 7, Short 15, Miles 26, Markov 31, McIntosh 33, Menadue 37 In: Miles, Markov, Menadue RobINsoN 5 sChaChe 23 mCstay 25 RANCE 18 AStBuRy 12 GRIMES 2 tayLoR 28 hIPWooD 30 mCCLuGGaGe 6 CONCA 30 HOuLI 14 B ELLIS 5 beWICk 8 ZoRko 15 LesteR 35 LAMBERt 23 VLAStuIN 1 GRIGG 6 mayes 32 GaRDINeR 27 Cox 20 RIOLI 17 ELtON 43 ButLER 40 CutLeR 26 aNDReWs 31 RICh 10 MARtIN 4 RIEWOLDt 8 CAStAGNA 46 FF: FB: hF: HB: C: C: hb: HF: Fb: FF: 50 50 50 50 ColliNgWood v st Kilda Head to Head: Magpies 157 Saints 58 draws 2 Last cLasH: Round 3, 2016 - St Kilda 18.11 (119) d Collingwood 14.6 (90) at the MCG Ubet: Magpies $1.74 Saints $2.10 sUMMaRY: An intriguing fixture between clubs who hold hopes of making the finals but are both with just one win this season. The Magpies are averaging about 75 disposals more a game than St Kilda and have won more contested possessions than any side this season. But the Saints have an imposing forward line, led by stalwart Nick Riewoldt, which could stretch the Pies defence. KeY: Can St Kidas on-ballers restrict prolific Magpies Scott Pendlebury, Adam Treloar and Taylor Adams, who are all in the leagues top 20 for disposals? tip: Collingwood by 11 points. tV: Southern Cross & Fox Sports 503, 2.30pm (live) Sunday, ETihad STadium, 2.50Pm CoLLINGWooD Followers: Grundy 4, treloar 7, adams 13 Inter(from): Goldsack 6, blair 11, Dunn 15, mayne 16, Greenwood 19, Phillips 21, hoskin-elliott 32 In: Dunn, blair, elliott Followers: Hickey 1, Ross 6, Dunstan 7 Inter(from): Savage 5, Acres 8, Gilbert 19, Armitage 20, Long 21, Stevens 25, McCartin 32 In: Armitage, Stevens, Long FasoLo 1 mooRe 30 eLLIott 5 GEARy 14 BROWN 22 WEBStER 29 VaRCoe 18 WhIte 9 bRoomheaD 29 NEWNES 16 CARLISLE 2 ROBERtON 17 sIDebottom 22 PeNDLebuRy 10 CRIsP 25 BILLINGS 15 StEELE 9 MONtAGNA 11 smIth 40 ReID 20 mayNaRD 37 LONIE 13 RIEWOLDt 12 WELLER 44 hoWe 38 sChaDe 41 Ramsay 31 GRESHAM 4 BRuCE 27 MEMBREy 28 FF: FB: hF: HB: C: C: hb: HF: Fb: FF: ESSENDON St KILDA RICHMOND GEELONG Eagles outlast Sydney West Coasts Tom Barrass and Swan Robbie Fox clash during last nights game in Perth Picture: AAP IMAGES THE fat lady hasnt started singing for the Swans season, but shes warming up her tonsils after West Coasts 26-point win in Perth last night condemned Sydney to their worst start in 24 years. At 0-4 they will now need a minor miracle to make the finals. Since 2000 there have been 24 teams who have started with four consecutive losses and none of them have seen September action. While they were beaten, it wasnt all doom and gloom for the red and whites who were still in the match with less than 10 minutes to go. The Eagles were too good in the end but Josh Kennedy led the way again for the Swans. Josh Kennedy, Luke Parker and Jake Lloyd were relentless in their work rate and their massively inexperienced youngsters were again outstanding. None were more impressive than livewire forward Will Hayward who looks a terrific Rising Star prospect. He provided a target all night and kicked two goals but could easily have made it four had he kicked straight. The Swans were over the moon to pick him up at No.21 in last years draft and its easy to see why. He is one of 11 players in the current line-up who have made their debut either this season or last. An injury-hampered Lance Franklin was brave and kicked two goals for the night as he played hurt following a heavy first-quarter clash with Eagles skipper Shannon Hurn. Lance Franklin played hurt after copping a heavy hit in the opening term. Franklin still needs another three goals to reach the 800 mark. Tom Papley was also in excellent touch in his first game for the year. He kicked one goal and looked sharp.

The Dogs are 2-1 ahead of a history-making Good Friday clash against North Melbourne, at Etihad Stadium but have struggled to assert their authority throughout games. The premier has so far failed to replicate the clearance and contested ball dominance that powered it to last years title as it adjusts from hunter to the hunted. Thats been our lot so far. Weve had significant momentum swings in all our games and its not ideal, Beveridge said. Its not really the way we want to play, but quite a lot of that you can put down to the opposition and the evenness of the competition, I think. But we want a bit more control during games. Beveridge rewarded Clay Smith and Josh Dunkley for knocking on the door at VFL level with recalls for the big clash, axing premiership duo Caleb Daniel and Shane Biggs. Liam Picken has kept his spot after last weeks concussion, while Kangaroos draftee Jy Simpkin and Scott Thompson have been recalled by the Kangaroos to replace Sam Durdin and Ryan Clarke. With the third-man up banned, the smaller Dogs have struggled to blunt the influence of rival ruckmen and dominate stoppages like they did in 2016. Fremantle giant Aaron Sandilands dominated in the Dockers win over the Dogs, while Roo ruck duo Todd Goldstein and Braydon Preuss present another challenge this week. I was vocal that I didnt want (the ruck rule) to change in the first place, but now that its in the game weve accepted it, Beveridge said. Were looking to deal with it and manage it, but theres no doubt its changed our approach to things and were searching for different ways to get an advantage in there and we havent quite got there yet. Hes been quite impressive, Preuss, and obviously we know how good a player Todd Goldstein has been over the years. SAM EDMUND
