AFL Round 6 My Preview
This is a fascinating Round of footy with many tantalising contests. There are a lot of games that are hard to tip a winner in!
My choice of a definite winner for this Round: Tigers
Wednesday Night Game
Tigers v Demons
The Tigers showed that they have some depth with all players with the exception of perhaps Tom Lynch contributing in Round 5, while the Demons were atrocious in their Round 5 game.
Key matchup: Toby Nankervis v Max Gawn
Tigers Game Changer: Brandon Ellis
Demons Game Changer: Angus Brayshaw
My Prediction: Tigers
Thursday Night Game
Bombers v Magpies
The Anzac Day game should be a good one with the Bombers likely to win this one if they play to their optimum level.
Key matchup: Zach Merrett v Scott Pendlebury
Bombers Game Changer: Mitch Brown
Magpies Game Changer: Josh Thomas
My Prediction: Bombers
Friday Night Game
Power v Kangaroos
