AFL Round 20 My Preview
Round 20 promises to be a interesting and entertaining Round of footy with in all likelihood 13 teams still a chance to feature in finals in September.
My choice of a definite winner for this Round: Tigers
Friday Night Game
Kangaroos v Hawks
Both teams need to bounce back from a loss they suffered in Round 19.
Key matchup: Todd Goldstein v Ben Mcevoy
Kangaroos Game Changer: Shaun Higgins

Key matchup: Zach Merrett v Tom Rockliff
