That'll be Hopper out for 2 weeks at least (concussion or broken jaw). They've had a few other bad ones as well the Giants this game.

Im not cheering on an injury here (and I hope he's OK because that looked bad), but jeeze the footy Gods have looked after us the last 2 weeks.

I reckon Richmond is in the eight next week unless Freo beat the Brions

The losses to Swans/WCE/North just haunt our season…..

it will always happen, I mean always - even if we finish in the top 4 there will be regrets for games we should (my least favourite word atm) have won - I'm still grieving our 2 inexplicable losses in 95, ffs!

Another perfect week of results for us.

Next week we need:

Us to beat the Suns (likely)
The Dogs to roll the Bombers (likely)
Cats to pump the Giants (likely)
North to beat the Tigers (unlikely but you never know)
Melbourne to beat the Eagles (likely)
Sydney to roll the Saints (likely)
Lions to knock off the Dockers (likely)

Those results would see us in 9th place next week.

A Saints win is the only one we can really be OK with, because their percentage is rubbish, so even if they won, we would still be 9th (presuming other results go our way).

North a decent chance against Richmond too I reckon. Of your "likelys" most worried about Brisbane v Freo, Freo are plucky and the Lions were rubbish against the Hawks.

Brisbane will want to hit back, and Freo are Freo. Reckon I'd be tipping the Lions personally.

The one that worries me the most is us v the Suns. They'll want to make a statement after their flogging from Melbourne, and its exactly those sorts of important games against weaker sides that we lose.
