Last weekend of byes thankfully, but what an interesting turn of events. So, what’s in store for tonight’s crucial matchup? Will the Eagles get back to winning on their home deck or can the Cats triumph in a massive duel over West? Here are my tips for tonight’s game. $7k up for grabs in cash prizes!
ATM – Money-maker
Hammer – Loyal
Biscuit – Risk
Jamie Cripps $6700 Hammer
A form of 74 fp, not amazing but slowly getting back into things with an injured ankle. One thing we know is, Cripps always performs in Perth at Domain. 93 and 98 in his last two matches. With Kennedy and Hill out, the Eagles will look to their smalls to create goals.
Daniel Menzel $5800 Biscuit
Recent form suggests he isn’t in great touch. But despite that I think Menzel is due for a good game and with Hawkins out he will be vital up forward. Menzel has still managed 25.9 this season and is always handy for 3 or 4 on occasions.
Rhys Stanley $6100 Biscuit
Back in the side with Hawkins and Blicavs out. While he could be the main target up forward tonight, this is his chance to shine and prove his worth. Averaging 62 fp and will have plenty of delivery up forward and a chance in the ruck. Listed as Ruck but can guarantee he will be full forward.
Mitch Duncan $10600 ATM
Duncan has had an awesome year to date, averaging 117 fp, 28 touches, 7 marks and 5 tackles. Back in his hometown, look for him to run wild on the wings of Domain stadium. Been Mr. Consistent for the Cats this year.
Sam Mitchell $8500 Hammer
Mitchell started well but has dropped off a touch, still averaging 92 for coming off 33 touches, 4 marks 107 last game. Could play a huge part for Eagles tonight. With rain on the cards and a slippery deck, his supreme ball skills could be vital.
Scott Selwood $6800 biscuit
Against his old team where he won a b&f. Selwood averages 121 fp and almost 15 tackles a game. In a highly contested game, his ability to make it a scrap and gather cheap handballs and tackles could make his price continue to rise.
Zach Tuohy $8300 ATM
Probably the pick up of the season. Tuohy has averaged 94 fp, 24 disposals, and 5 marks this season. The big ground of Domain will suit his run from the backline. A major piece in the Cats attack from defence, Tuohy is a tough matchup for any forward.
Jeremy McGovern $6800 Hammer
McGovern slowly gathering his momentum of last season. Averaging 76 fp but has scored 80 and 88 in his last two matches. With no Hawkins in the lineup for Geelong, McGovern will hope to float across the backline with ease and in some cases push forward to be another key target.
