AFL Round 11 My Preview
There weren’t any blowouts last week with the biggest margin in the 9 games, 31 points, hopefully that’s a sign that there will be a lot of close games in Round 11 of the 2019 AFL season.
My choice of a definite winner for this Round: Magpies
Friday Night Game
Kangaroos v Tigers
This could be an intriguing contest if the Kangaroos play to the level that they are capable of, as they have some good players in their team. It will be interesting to see how Rhyce Shaw goes in his first game as interim coach of the Kangaroos.
Key matchup: Ben Cunnington v Trent Cotchin
Kangaroos Game Changer: Mason Wood
Tigers Game Changer: Noah Balta
My Prediction: Tigers
Saturday Afternoon Games
Magpies v Dockers
It’s 2nd against 8th in this one; the Magpies will look to further solidify their top 8 spot, while the Dockers will be eager to stay in the top 8.
Key matchup: Steele Sidebottom v Darcy Tucker
Magpies Game Changer: Josh Thomas
Dockers Game Changer: Ed Langdon
