Bendigo had a great win over Williamstown and will make their 1st finals series since 2007 with a win in this game. Collingwood stumbled in the last quarter against the Borough making this a must win game to stay in touch with the top 4. This will be a close game but Bendigo to win.

Gold Coast make their 2nd straight back to Melbourne after losing to Geelong in a tight match last week. Casey fell away in the 2nd half against the Hawks last week. Casey need to get back on track to sure up their spot in the top 4 and give themselves an outside chance of getting into the top 2. Casey to win at home.

Werribee had a great win over the Roosters while Williamstown had a shock loss at home to Bendigo. There should be a good crowd at Werribee on Saturday Night. Williamstown need to get back on the winners list to maintain their hold on top spot while Werribee are looking to continue their good late season form. Willy to win.

Last time they met: Round 1 2010 at Coburg. North Ballarat 12-13(85) def Coburg Tigers 11-9(75).
North Ballarat were beaten by Werribee while 7 goals from Nick Carnell was the reason the Tigers snuck past the Dolphins at home. The Roosters are back on home soil needing a win to stay in the top 2 and give themselves a chance at the minor premiership. North Ballarat should win comfortably.

Frankston(1-14 14th) vs Northern Bullants(8-7 7th) at Frankston 2pm
(Reserves curtain raiser starts at 11am)
Last time they met: Round 4 2010 at Visy Park. Northern Bullants 24-17(161) def Frankston 8-7(55).
Frankston have been improving of late but stumbled against Coburg last week. The Bullants scored the lowest score of the season in their loss to Sandy in very tough conditions. A win for the Bullants will sure up their top 8 spot keep them in the hunt to finish either 5th or 6th and maybe a home final. The Bullants should win this one but it will be a lot closer than their match in Round 4.
STATS

Sandringham(6-9 9th) vs Port Melbourne(10-5 4th) at Trevor Barker Oval,Sandringham 2pm
(Reserves Curtain Raiser starts at 11am)
Last time they met: Round 5 2010 at TEAC Oval. Port Melbourne 25-12(162) def Sandringham 10-10(70).
Sandy kept their slim finals hopes alive with a great win over the Bullants while the Borough moved into the top 4 with a good win over the Pies. This is a huge game with Sandy in another must win game to keep their finals hope alive while the Borough need a win here to stay in the top 4. This should be a classic.
