Check out all our expert AFL tips for Round 11 below:
Game 1 – Sydney Swans vs Carlton Blues, Friday 26th May, 7.50pm
Both of these teams haven't lived up to expectation this year, but both are in desperate need of four points to gain some momentum before the bye. The Swans have had some excuses with injury to key players but have struggled to get their season on track. Carlton is a topic of conversation for all the wrong reasons but still have the talent and ability. But who knows which Carlton teams rocks up.
Game 2 – St Kilda Saints vs Hawthorn Hawks, Saturday 27th May, 1.45pm
It was a big win last week for the Hawks and although they won't have a lot of wins this year it's good for this young group to taste a bit of success. A few players coming back will help them be more competitive but will find this task tough. Structurally, the Saints are up there with the best of them which will make scoring very tough for the Hawks.
Game 3 – Melbourne Demons vs Fremantle Dockers, Saturday 27th May, 2.10pm
Very interesting contest this one and hard to judge on previous weeks form. Dees got pipped by an in-form Power and the Dockers knocked off an injury riddled Cats at home. I think the Demons get the job done here purely on the fact that I can't trust the Dockers away from home.
Game 4 – Geelong Cats vs Greater Western Sydney Giants, Saturday 27th May, 4.35pm
Sometimes you need some extra motivation to get yourself up for a game, I doubt there would be anything more motivating than your captain’s 200th. A leader a gun player and a competitive beast, I hope they put on a show for Toby. The Cats have been stung hard with injuries but are a different beast at home. I think they will ruin the party.
Game 5 – Gold Coast Suns vs Western Bulldogs, Saturday 27th May, 7.25pm
A trip to the Top End for these sides makes for an interesting battle. I think these games and conditions means we will see a much tighter than normal contest. The Bulldogs are running hot at the moment and there rough and tumble style of play will suit the Top End.
Game 6 – West Coast Eagles vs Essendon Bombers, Saturday 27th May, 7.30pm
The trip west was viewed as the toughest trip going around but not anymore. The Eagles have struggled to win a quarter let alone a game and up against a team that has surprised a lot of people this year and will find it hard to win. Essendon are looking to get back some good players in the second half of year so winning games like this are crucial.
Game 7 – Richmond Tigers vs Port Adelaide Power, Sunday 28th May, 1.10pm
It sounds weird and it happens every year, Ken Hinkley, even though his team sits third on the ladder is rumoured to be coaching other clubs around the league. A bit has been happening at Richmond this past week and will the caretaker coach boost get Richmond a victory...maybe it will.
Game 8 – Collingwood Magpies vs North Melbourne Kangaroos, Sunday 28th May, 3.20pm
Steele Sidebottom becomes the 4th player in Collingwood history to play 300 games, you have to be pretty good to play that many games. Should be an easy kill for the Pies who are still yet to play the three bottom sides, North Melbourne being one of them. Stiff last week butchering the rotations which resulted in a goal and a loss against the Swans.
Game 9 – Adelaide Crows vs Brisbane Lions, Sunday 28th May, 4.40pm
I got a feeling that the Crows will win this game and its purely based on the fact they love playing at home. Their record speaks for itself and feel that trend will continue this week. The Lions are probably the least talked about team in the eight at the moment, ticking along nicely on the back of a potent forward line setup.
