Southport fresh from a bye will see Casey drop another game. The sharks will avenge last year's gf. Reckon Preston can knock off Collingwood at Cramer street and chalk up win number three. Williamstown travel to box hill. Interesting game. Think the seagulls can win if they can get a jump early and not fall behind. The seagulls won't mind if there is a strong breezy day. Box hill are playing very well so won't be easy.

Game of the round? Southport-Casey or Box Hill-Willy? I don't really know what to make of either Southport or Casey, neither are quite the teams they were last season, and Fankhauser isn't the intimidating fortress that Southport made it last year. I have a sneaking feeling Casey might actually pip them up there. Think we will find out a lot about Willy up against Box Hill. Given that only Frankston's inaccuracy gifted them a win against us, I'm not convinced yet. Reckon the Mustangs might touch them up.

Am looking forward to heading to Princes Park to watch the Dolphins smack the hapless Blues around a bit. Carlton's AFL injury woes should be mean a bit of a feast for the Dollies I reckon.

I hope you're right! A win likely keeps the Dolphs within half-a-game of the top 10. A loss though will make it hard with a pretty tough run home. This is pretty much must-win I reckon.

fabulous win by 'Town out at Box Hill - the goal by Corey Ellison in the last quarter was magical

That's a very big win Wally.....I honestly thought Box Hill would be too much for you out there, but there ya go, Willy must surely be considered contenders after that win.

Strangely, we have a pretty good record out at Box Hill but I thought we would be up against it on Saturday so to win that one was a real bonus - the shellacking we copped out at Werribee seems to smartened a few of our blokes up

How did Oscar McDonald and Marty Hore go. Huge bonus for the seagulls that they were not drafted last week. Did the ex seagull Thorpe play for Box Hill ? He has been going ok for Box Hill this year.

I was told Oscar was definitely going to Sydney but that's not how it worked out, unfortunately for him but a stroke of luck for Willi - AFL Clubs must have been looking at Marty Hore but no takers, obviously. Jaylon Thorpe hasn't played the past two weeks but kicked 3.3 in round 9. Don't know if he's injured or maybe pushed out via the under-22 rule which was the reason he couldn't get a run at Willi but that rule has been modified this year.
