We get Freo after a 6 day break, they get 5 days. Our previous game is day, theirs is night. Reckon that's a nice little advantage Andy Russell will be happy with. Could be a very important game for us too. Noice!I think this can warrant it's own thread given how much it will impact this season.
Geelong is set to be one of several clubs forced to take on a rotation policy in the next block of fixtureswww.afl.com.au
We have 1 x 5 day break, 1 x 10 day break (bye) & 1 x 6 day break from rounds 9-12. Not bad. With North/Hawks/WC/Freo let's hope we can go 3-1 out of that block.
Geelong hit hard with 2 x 4 day breaks and 2 x 5 day breaks...that's seriously rough all back-to-back.
WC are well poised...2 x 6 day breaks, a bye & 1 x 7 day break...all games at Optus with crowds now let in so they get a proper home ground advantage.
The other factor to consider is the advantages a team would have playing a team when they have a short break...eg in rd 12 Port play Geelong off a 6 day break while Geelong only get 4 days.
