North to me will be the upset of the Round North Melbourne has a great record against Port Adelaide
My pick for the upset of the round would be Hawthorn to beat Geelong, depending on how Hawthorn's injury list is going from last week.

Games we don't get on FTA TV this weekend..

Geelong vs Hawthorn (even though the Port game is delayed for 3 hours)
GWS vs Sydney
Freo vs West Coast

FU Murdoch

anyway..

St Kilda V Essendon - seem to be on a roll
Geelong V Hawthorn - the more quality side
Port Adelaide V Kangaroos - cos that's how this season is going
Gold Coast V Collingwood - if Collingwood lose this they get a new coach and lock in draft pick #4 - so they wont
GWS V Sydney - good game - wish I could see it
Melbourne V Adelaide - will outrun them up there
Richmond V Brisbane - even Richmond can't lose this one
Carlton V Western Bulldogs - Dogs turn to hit some form
Fremantle V West Coast - Kennedy to kick 5 and WCE to react to a week of bad press
Well no excuses this week for Port fans.. they need to rock up and push for 40K

St Kilda Vs Essendon - Stick figure Joe to roost one from 70,ala Dustin Fletcher against us, but his will be a point in a Saints 1 point victory.

Geelong Vs Hawthorn - Back to the blockbuster days, Dangerfield to beat the Hawks on the siren with a 3 point win.

Port Adelaide Vs Kangaroos - Power on, Roos off. Gray to kick 5, Goldstein vs Ryder one to watch.

Gold Coast Vs Collingwood - In Gazza, out Macaffer equals 40 touches and with Lynch kicking 6 the Suns will win by plenty.

GWS Vs Sydney - Giants still repaying the "kindness" Sydney showed them upon inception and will win this in a canter.

Melbourne Vs Adelaide - Dees looking good but reckon the potent forward line of the Crows will get them over the line by 16.

Richmond Vs Brisbane - Tigerland will roar again with a comprehensive win over an improving Lions side.

Carlton Vs Western Bulldogs - Dogs to come out and show they won't surrender their season without at least a little bite.

Fremantle Vs West Coast - Could it be season over for the loser? Toss of the coin here but Weagles by 9.

Neither was mine from high up in the stands when Fletch roosted his. :p

But surely you have already lived through similar last season when Daniher took his sky high mark when the game was in the balance against us...and then missed.

Daniher is more likely to slot one from 70 than a set-shot 30 out directly in front though. :D

St Kilda vs Essendon - 14 points - Saints will get over the line as they push to solidify their finals spot. They've worked into some good form at the right time of the year.

Geelong vs Hawthorn - 21 points - Cats too strong for the Hawks, though it will be a strong contest.

Port Adelaide vs North Melbourne - 56 points - Comfortable win to the Power, will smash them all over the ground.

Gold Coast vs Collingwood - 3 points - Toss of a coin, gone with the Suns as it's a home game. Both teams have good ins this week, reckon this will be a decent contest to watch.

Greater Western Sydney vs Sydney - 13 points - Swans on a roll and GWS struggling with injuries and unable to play their brand of footy for more than patches throughout games.

Melbourne vs Adelaide - 25 points - Crows will get the job done as the Dees missing Jones, Viney, Tyson and Salem through the midfield will be too much to cover.

Richmond vs Brisbane - 49 points - Easy win for Richmond as they fight for a top 4 spot. Dusty to go on an absolute tear and rack up another 3 Brownlow votes.

Carlton vs Western Bulldogs - 8 points - Doggies will limp over the line in an ugly game of football.

Fremantle vs West Coast - 13 points - Hard fought game with the Eagles getting over the line. The return of Kennedy will help immensely.
