MIDFIELD V MIDFIELD PREMIERSHIP V PREMIERSHIP

Posted by Josh on September 26, 2009

 

 

As most people know these days the game is played and won in the midfield. Geelong and St.Kilda have most arguably the 2 best midfield’s in the game. So when the 2 teams go head 2 head today in what should shape out to be a cracking match it will be, MIDFIELD V MIDFIELD. So I will look at how the midfield’s should line up against each other and see the battle’s inside THE BATTLE!

# 2 Steven King V #24 Mark Blake

This will be one of the most intense battle’s ruckman V ruckman, enemy V enemy. After King took Blake’s spot in the memorable 2007 Grand Final, Blake would always find a way for revenge. Today is Blake’s day and if Blake can get the wood on King early. Bye, Bye St.Kilda. Winner: Blake (Geelong)

 #38 Clinton Jones V #29 Gary Ablett

Jones V Yablett. Tagger V Gun. Saint V Cat. Ablett is clearly the best of the best, but if Clint Jones can stop Ablett and help the Saints win the flag surely Jones has to be the best of the best. Obviously not. Last Time Jones went head to head with Yablett, Ablett had 27 touches but weren’t that effective as most of them were in the back half. Ablett kicked 2 goals though and today in a low scoring game Jones can’t afford Ablett to be kicking goals. Winner: Ablett (Geelong)

#7 Lenny Hayes V #45 Cameron Ling

Hayes V Ling. Last Week Hayes was on fire. Bursting through the middle, evading tackles, hitting players lace out and most importantly kicking a crucial goal. Hayes will have to be stopped. Hayes is a great and courageous player and deserves a premiership for his great ability. But premierships don’t come easy, but I believe if Hayes does what he did last week, he’ll be very hard to stop. Winner: Hayes (St.Kilda)

#26 Nick Dal Santo V #3 Jimmy Bartel

Leader V Leader. Bartel has already been here, done that but Nick Dal Santo won’t leave without a fight. I thought this would be a great match-up. Both ball winners and both outstanding talents. I’m not sure if Dal Santo is ready to live the dream but I think he could. If and when St.Kilda win, Dal Santo will have been a huge part of the victory. Dal Santo has shown the way to all the youngsters at St.Kilda this year and after he was dropped last year his game has improved to new heights. Winner: Bartel (Geelong)

#22 Farren Ray V #11 Joel Corey

Last Year, Ray was an average player at the Western Bulldogs and this year Ray and St.Kilda have taken his game to a new level. Ray has shown his true potential this year and today will be a real challenge. I believe Ray can play on a star player like Corey but I’m not sure if Ross Lyon will agree. Ray needs to play his normal game and he’ll get through. Ray is my roughie for the Norm Smith. Winner: Ray (St.Kilda)

#11 Leigh Montagna V #14 Joel Selwood

Selwood has played 3 seasons now and played in 3 Grand Finals. I believe today he will have to do it the hard way and play on prolific ball winner Leigh Montagna. Selwood has been great in his last 2 Grand Finals so there is no reason why he won’t be the difference today. Montagna needs to concentrate on winning the ball but also make sure that Selwood does not get hold of him. If any of these players make an impact on the scoreboard, the other will get a big spray. Winner: Montagna (St.Kilda)

The Winner: Saints 3-3 Geelong
