A Few Stats

Saints  captain Nick Riewoldt was named with the (C) and Chris Judd (VC). It is the fifth time Cat defender Matthew Scarlett and Crow midfielder Simon Goodwin have been given the honours with both players being selected in the back half. The most talked about position was the full-back position which was taken by Matthew Scarlett and Brian Lake was named in the back pocket. The surprise was that Leon Davis was named in the side and West Coast forward Mark LeCras missed out after his outstanding year. Paul Chapman was surprisingly named at half-forward and Brendon Goddard was named on the BENCH for his first selection in the team. Nick Dal Santo, Matthew Boyd and Adam Goodes round up the bench. Dane Swan was named at half-forward as expected and Brendan Fevola was worthily selected at full-forward after winning the Coleman Medal. Simon Prestigiacomo, Mitch Clark and Sam Gilbert were unlucky not to be selected. Lance Franklin surely could have been selected in the forward pocket?

Emg: Phil Davis, Richard Douglas, Rory Sloane

In: Robert Shirley
Out: Richard Douglas (omitted)

 

FORM GUIDE (past five matches):
WWWLL (Collingwood); LWWWW (Adelaide Crows)

MATCH ODDS:
Collingwood $2.25, Adelaide $1.65 (TAB Sportsbet)

PLAYERS TO WATCH:

Dane SWAN

Swan has had a fantastic year and is one of the favourites for the 2009 Brownlow Medal. Swan has dropped of his best in the past few weeks but has still been up with the best players on the ground. Swan statistics this year show he has been working hard for the ball. Swan has averaged 31.8 disposals a game in 09′, 7.8 marks, 3.0 tackles and 5.4 inside 50’s. He was ranked 1 in the competition for disposals in 2009.

Bernie VINCE

Vince has been in outstanding form in Adelaide’s ;ast few weeks when they have demolished Carlton and Essendon. Vince has been in career best form and is expected to perform to high levels in this game and in finals to come. Vince who is still 23 has already established himself as one of Adelaide’s best players. Vince was taken 32 in the 2005 draft and has improved ever since. Vince has averaged: 27.2 disposals, 6.0 marks, 2.8 tackles and 97.8 SuperCoach points. He had 34 disposals and 3 goals against Carlton in Round 22.

Previous Games

Round 1, 2009
Adelaide – 13.12 (90)
Collingwood – 13.8 (86)

Round 19, 2009
Adelaide – 9.14 (68)
Collingwood – 13.11 (89)

WHO WILL WIN:

Collingwood have the psychological advantage being at home but Adelaide are in red hot form kicking more than 25 goals in both of the past few weeks. I think Adelaide will be to good for the Pies but I will give both teams a great chance to win the game. If Collingwood were to win: Swan, Davis, Didak and Jack Anthony would all have to fire and if Adelaide were to win: Vince, Tippett, Knights and Goodwin would all have to bring there best games down to Melbourne. Prestigiacomo will be the most likely person to play on Tippett and Swan would probably play on Vince. You would think Rutten would play on Anthony and Shirley will probably get Alan Didak. This Game should be decided by less than 20 points and I would think both teams will form a zone to stop the other team with ther deadly attacks. Expect a low scoring game with heaps of excitement.

THE WINNER:

Adelaide by 10 points.
