Friday Night Game

GWS Giants v Western Bulldogs
This is going to be a tough test for the Western Bulldogs who were exceptional in Round 5. Expect them to be ready for the challenge.
Key matchup: Callan Ward v Tom Liberatore
GWS Giants Game Changer: Tim Taranto
Western Bulldogs Game Changer: Jack Macrae
My Prediction: Western Bulldogs

Saturday Afternoon Games (Eastern Time)

Geelong Cats v West Coast Eagles
This could be a Season defining game for both of these teams. It’s a difficult game to make a prediction. The Cats should win this game.
Key matchup: Dom Sheed v Cameron Guthrie
Geelong Cats Game Changer: Sam Menegola
West Coast Eagles Game Changer: Liam Duggan
My Prediction: Geelong Cats

Gold Coast Suns v Sydney Swans
This is a game that’s almost a must win for the Gold Coast Suns. They have only notched one win this Season. The Sydney Swans suffered two injuries to key players; Tom Hickey and Lance Franklin, which could impact them.
Key matchup: Caleb Graham v Callum Sinclair
Gold Coast Suns Game Changer: Lachie Weller
Sydney Swans Game Changer: Callum Mills
My Prediction: Gold Coast Suns

Saturday Evening Game (Melbourne Time)

Carlton v Brisbane Lions
This game is a forgone conclusion based on the two teams respective Round 5 performances. This could be a Season defining game with both teams having had two wins in their opening five games.
Key matchup: Jarryd Lyons v Ed Curnow
Carlton Game Changer: Sam Walsh
Brisbane Lions Game Changer: Hugh McCluggage
My Prediction: Brisbane Lions

Saturday Night Games

Melbourne Demons v Richmond
This is a game that should be entertaining and interesting to watch. The Melbourne Demons will be looking to continue their unbeaten start to the Season.Key matchup: Max Gawn v Toby Nankervis
Melbourne Demons Game Changer: Ed Langdon
Richmond Game Changer: Jayden Short
My Prediction: Melbourne Demons

Fremantle Dockers v North Melbourne
North Melbourne don’t look like a winning a game. On the other hand, the Dockers have won three out of five games.
Key matchup: Sean Darcy v Todd Goldstein
Fremantle Dockers Game Changer: Matt Taberner
North Melbourne Game Changer: Nick Larkey
My Prediction: Fremantle Dockers

Sunday Afternoon Games

Hawthorn v Adelaide Crows
This is an extremely tough game to predict. The Adelaide Crows should be too good for Hawthorn
Key matchup: Jaeger O’Meara v Rory Laird
Hawthorn Game Changer: Jarman Impey
Adelaide Crows Game Changer: Tom Doedee
My Prediction: Adelaide Crows

Collingwood v Essendon
This is a game that Collingwood should win. It could go either way as both teams have won just one game so far this Season. The fact that Jordan Ridley is unavailable for Essendon due to concussion should be the deciding factor. He has been arguably Essendon’s best player this Season.
Key matchup: Brodie Grundy v Nik Cox
Collingwood Game Changer: Jack Crisp
Essendon Game Changer: Kyle Langford
My Prediction: Collingwood

Sunday Night Game (Adelaide Time)

Port Adelaide v St Kilda
The fact that St Kilda had a comprehensive loss in Round 5, may give them extra motivation. It appears as if Rowan Marshall and Zak Jones will be back, which will be important.
Key matchup: Scott Lycett v Rowan Marshall
Port Adelaide Game Changer: Ryan Burton
St Kilda Game Changer: Jack Billings
My Prediction: St Kilda
