Marsh Community Series Review | Blues Vs Lions

The Blues took on the Lions in a scrappy affair at Ikon Park with both sides keen to snag a win after falling short last time out. It was a tale of two halves with Carlton looking exceptional for most of the first half before running out of steam and being completely overrun by Brisbane who went on to post a handsome 45 point win. It was a modest game fantasy wise with Cripps the only player on the ground to have more than 25 disposals. But there’s still plenty to unpack as we start finalising our squads for round 1.

Marsh Community Series Review | Power Vs Bulldogs

What’s interesting is that basically this was both teams’ best 22’s. The only players missing are all due to injury, so if you had your eye on someone and they didn’t play in this game and weren’t injured, it doesn’t bode well for them.

Marsh Community Series Review | Demons Vs Hawks

Despite both teams rolling out something very very close to their best 22 and conditions being reasonable, skills were poor with turnovers aplenty and this was a hard game to watch.

Marsh Community Series Review | Suns Vs Crows

The Crows hosted a reinvigorated Suns outfit fresh off their trouncing of the Cats last week. Gold Coast picked up right where they left off two weeks ago and were the dominant team. Adelaide looked like a side still getting use to the huge changes over the Summer and almost pinched this one albeit with some help from the Suns poor goal conversion. The visitors held on for a 7 point win in what was at times a feisty and entertaining dress rehearsal for Round 1.

Six players that could replace the injured Tim Taranto

Last weekend the GWS Giants were hit with horrible news. The clubs reigning best and fairest winner Tim Taranto injured his shoulder and will require surgery. This reconstruction will mean he misses the next four to five months. With a return unlikely until after the bye round, it opens up an opportunity inside the Giants midfield. But for who?

Marsh Community Series Review | Magpies Vs Tigers

It was a warm 32 degree day with gusty winds at the infamous Norm Minns Oval in Wangaratta. The Tigers were without Dusty, Cotchin, Houli, Tommy Lynch, Riewoldt and Edwards. Whilst the Pies had Grundy, Pendles, Sidebottom, Moore and Howe missing. Was a good hit-out for both teams, low tackling affair where the Pies had it pretty much on their terms before running out 40 point winners.
