Brisbane Lions vs Geelong Cats (Friday @ 11:35am at South Pine Sports Complex)
Brisbane takes on Geelong to begin Round 11 in the VFL. Both teams are coming off disappointing performances against main rivals. Geelong have been a capable scoring squad, led by full forward Josh Jenkins. Jenkins is currently sitting third in goals this VFL season. The Cats do head into the match as favourites despite being the away side.
Gold Coast Suns vs Southport (Saturday @ 11:00am at Metricon Stadium)
The battle of Gold Coast begins the Saturday matches. Southport have had an almost perfect start to this season and sit on top of the ladder. This is due to midfield stars Jacob Dawson, Michael Manteit and Jesse Joyce working in effective unison. The Sharks also have three forwards in the top 10 for goals scored this VFL season (Billy Gowers, Mitch Johnson, Connor Nutting). The Suns carry momentum into this contest winning their last two, however it is the Sharks that will likely win the battle at Metricon.
Coburg Lions vs Footscray Bulldogs (Saturday @ 12:00pm at Highgate Recreation Reserve)
Coburg host the unblemished Footscray at home. The Bulldogs have yet to lose this season and sit second on the ladder only behind Southport (who have played one more game). Josh Schache has been a major contributor across the field as he performs to find a consistent spot in the AFL side. The Lions have had a bright star in Marcus Lentini who has averaged over 35 disposals for the club. Coburg have hit a slump and could face three defeats in a row due to the Bulldogs efficiency.
North Melbourne vs Werribee Tigers (Saturday @ 12:00pm at Arden Street Oval)
Old, partnered clubs face off at Arden street. Werribee have looked impressive the past four matches, scoring on average over 123 points. North Melbourne have respectively won the last two games but they do struggle to score consistently. It is no secret that the Kangaroos have struggled to defend as well, with three matches this season being over 100-point defeats. The Kangaroos will likely debut the number one mid-season draft pick Jacob Edwards this weekend. Werribee look set to continue their push up the VFL ladder, with a predicted comfortable win against the Kangaroos.
Collingwood vs Frankston (Saturday @ 12:05pm at Holden Centre)
Magpies face the unpredictable Dolphins at the Holden Centre. Both teams have struggled for consistent form, yet both are sitting capable to push for a top eight spot. Collingwood are coming off a 33-point loss to Sydney and Frankston got back on the winner’s side beating the winless Northern Bullants. A close contest is predicted with perhaps the Magpies just winning it at home.
Box Hill Hawks vs Aspley (Saturday @ 12:30pm at Box Hill City Oval)
Hornets fly down south to the awaiting Hawks. Aspley are on a six-game losing streak. Some defeats ranging from narrow margins, others to beltings. Box Hill on the other hand comfortably sit fourth on the ladder and will be looking to further push away from falling out of the finals race. Despite having the competition's clear goal kicking leader Matthew Hammelmann (currently on 36 goals), Aspley will likely continue the losing streak at Box Hill.
Sandringham Zebras vs Richmond (Saturday @ 2:00pm at Trevor Barker Beach Oval)
Sandringham welcome Richmond to Trevor Barker Oval to conclude the Saturday games. Sandringham have put together a couple of nice wins most recently beating Aspley by 11 points. The Tigers are looking to put last week’s grand final rematch behind them as it ended in a controversial draw. The draw caused them to fall out of the top eight, so a win is needed to regain composure and finals aspirations. The Zebras do carry momentum, but the Tigers are set to regain a finals spot.
Casey Demons vs Essendon (Sunday @ 12:00pm at Casey Fields)
Unbeaten Demons face the Bombers on Sunday. Casey remains one of the final two teams that are undefeated this season. Despite a close one-point win over the Cats in Round 4, the Demons have become a potential finals favourite. Essendon however look underwhelming this campaign and are coming off a 51-point loss to Box Hill. The Demons look all but certain to remain undefeated.
Northern Bullants vs Carlton VFL (Sunday @ 1:00pm at Preston City Oval)
Past parent club returns to Preston Oval. The Bullants are the only team without a victory this season, yet they have shown a steady improvement as 2021 rolls along. Carlton will return to Preston for the first time since the clubs split their partnership. The Blues are outside the top eight, but with the recent form of small forward Ben Crocker, they can push for a finals spot. The Blues will look to squash any potential upsets against the Bullants.
Port Melbourne vs Williamstown (Sunday @ 2:00pm at ETU Stadium)
Old time rivals are set to clash in South Melbourne. Port Melbourne surprising look lost this season, currently sitting 21st only in front of only the winless Northern Bullants. Williamstown, however, started the season strong but have dropped the last two matches, one being the recent draw to Richmond. Mitch Hibbard has regained his spectacular form like he did back in 2019 for the Seagulls. VFL’s oldest rivalry looks set to be a Seagulls win in the Borough.
GWS Giants vs Sydney Swans (Sunday @ 4:45pm at Holden Centre)
The two Sydney teams meet again. The Swans are on a three-game losing streak, most recently a bitter three-point loss to Gold Coast. GWS have shown promise of great things this season including the only victory over leaders Southport back in Round 3. However, the Giants are coming off a loss to Werribee last week putting them 13th on the ladder. Sydney got the first victory in Round 1, but the Giants look the favourites this time.
