Seven weeks to go... Who is your premiership tip?

I'm surprised to see how well Sandringham are doing. I expected them to be a middle of the road side, but their best footy this year has been very good.

While Box Hill, Footscray and Williamstown are also travelling along nicely.

Who would have thought that Port would have lost 5 of their past 6 games? It's been almost a decade since the club has had such a form slump.

The Borough haven't quite come together this year, with such a big loss of experience across all lines of the the ground. With several key players on the sidelines or returning from injury, only a stirring win on Saturday would give us any hope of finals.

Essendon and Casey I haven't seen much of this year. Can anyone rate their chances in September?

Footscray are favorites on sportsbet. False favourites. Box hill and willy more chance gor the flag.

The VFL is too hard to predict weekly with the mix of different teams and injuries to AFL players let alone 7 weeks out Hopefully Sandy make a good account of themselves if the make the eight.
To me winning the current "VFL" premiership carries much less cudos now as the general football public see it as only a second rate reserves flag.Footscray are the exception as they hadnt won anything for so long.

Hawthorn 2nds have got it in the bag.

From the teams Sandy have played against this year, Williamstown were by far the most impressive so they'd be my tip at the moment. Certainly wouldn't discount Box Hill or Footscray either

Sandy. The most successful club in the past 30 years

Billy is right, too hard to guess. Commie could be right with Hawthorn 2's.. but remember their performance last GF by sitting their best on the bench for the critical part of the game. I reserve judgement for a couple of weeks.

Box Hill for mine even after today, the one factor may be if Hawthorn is in the Preliminary Final the same weekend, they may keep some players out as insurance

False favourites all right. Got smashed by the burgers.
Odds should be double.
