North Melbourne v (Gold Coast Suns)
(Port Adelaide) v Sydney Swans
(Essendon) v Melbourne Demons
(GWS Giants) v Hawthorn
West Coast Eagles v (Western Bulldogs)

Thursday Night Game
Brisbane Lions v Geelong Cats
This should be a good game of footy. Both of these teams should want to finish in the top four, so this is a pivotal contest for both teams.
Key matchup: Hugh McClugage v Sam Menegola
Brisbane Lions Game Changer: Eric Hipwood
Geelong Cats Game Changer: Jed Bews
My Prediction: Brisbane Lions
Friday Night Game
Richmond v St Kilda
Richmond is in the top eight on the AFL ladder as it stands, but they wouldn’t want to lose this game. If they do, which is possibility then they will sit in a precarious position. St Kilda simply have to win this game to keep their extremely slim hopes of a top eight finish alive.
Key matchup: Shane Edwards v Jack Steele
Richmond Game Changer: Dustin Martin
St Kilda Game Changer: Brad Crouch
My Prediction: St Kilda
Saturday Afternoon Game (Melbourne Time)
Collingwood v Fremantle Dockers
The Dockers have a chance to stay in the picture as far as a top eight finish is concerned.
Key matchup: Scott Pendlebury v David Mundy
Collingwood Game Changer: Darcy Cameron
Fremantle Dockers Game Changer: Matt Taberner
My Prediction: Fremantle Dockers
Saturday Afternoon Game (Tasmanian Time)
North Melbourne v Gold Coast Suns
This is a game that both teams should be looking to win to boost their morale.
Key matchup: Todd Goldstein v Zac Smith
North Melbourne Game Changer: Jy Simpkin
Gold Coast Suns Game Changer: Ben King
My Prediction: Gold Coast Suns
Saturday Evening Game (Adelaide Time)
Port Adelaide v Sydney Swans
This is an interesting game for different reasons; Port Adelaide will be looking to prove their Round 14 one sided win over the Suns wasn’t an aberration. On the other hand the Swans will be looking to show that their Round 13 comprehensive loss was a one off.
Key matchup: Scott Lycett v Tom Hickey
Port Adelaide Game Changer: Karl Amon
Sydney Swans Game Changer: Luke Parker
My Prediction: Port Adelaide
Saturday Night Game
Essendon v Melbourne Demons
This is a game that Essendon must win to stay in order feature in the finals. They can cause an upset in this game.
Key matchup: Sam Draper v Max Gawn
Essendon Game Changer: Zach Merrett
Melbourne Demons Game Changer: Tom McDonald
My Prediction: Essendon
Sunday Afternoon Game (Melbourne Time)
GWS Giants v Hawthorn
This is an intriguing contest. Despite Hawthorn sitting second last on the ladder they have some good players. This is a danger game for the Giants, but they should be too good.
Key matchup: Tim Taranto v Tom Mitchell
GWS Giants Game Changer: Harry Himmelberg
Hawthorn Game Changer: Jack Scrimshaw
My Prediction: GWS Giants
Sunday Afternoon Game (Perth Time)
West Coast Eagles v Western Bulldogs
The Bulldogs are the best team in the competition and should prove why against the Eagles.
Key matchup: Josh J. Kennedy v Alex Keath
West Coast Eagles Game Changer: Andrew Gaff
Western Bulldogs Game Changer: Lachie Hunter
My Prediction: Western Bulldogs
Sunday Evening Game (Melbourne Time)
Carlton v Adelaide Crows
This is a game that the Crows should win.
Key matchup: Sam Walsh v Rory Sloane
Carlton Game Changer: Jacob Weitering

My Prediction: Adelaide Crows
