Second plays sixth in the televised game on channel 7 this week when Essendon play Werribee out in Werribee. The Tigers are in good form, winning 3 of their past 4 games with the only blemish being an 8 point loss to contender Williamstown whilst Essendon have done 4 of their last 5, their only loss coming from top of the table Richmond by 3 points. Werribee have a great record against the Dons, winning 3 of their last 4 clashes.

Werribee had a tight loss against their western region rivals Williamstown, going down by 8 points after being down by up to 37 points half way through the third quarter. Matt Munro had a break out game, kicking 5 goals for the Tigers whilst Michael Barlow and Matthew Hanson combined for 70 disposals between them running through the middle, kicking a goal apiece as well.

Essendon completely annihilated Port Melbourne today, leading from start to finish with inaccuracy the only problem, winning by 69 points. Aaron Francis was a presence in the forward line, kicking 4 goals against one of the best defenders in the VFL whilst the midfield trio of Danny Younan, Will Snelling and Brayden Ham had 79 disposals and 8 goals between them, Michael Hartley destroying Frosty Miller Medal leader Jordan Lisle, who had 9 touches and 1 behind with Hartley having 22 disposals and a goal himself.

Obviously Franga doesn't play. Hard to guess who misses other than Laguda and Gooch.

Club website article has Liam McKenna playing instead of Francis.

Probably because it came through after the late change. VFL website has Francis so eh. Essendon website doesn't seem to have Lazzaro or Younan on the bench either which is strange. All of McKenna, Aylett, Guccione, Laguda and Lazzaro have been released to play locally, which means Berry, Bowman, Heppell and Younan will play, which of the released players ends up back will be interesting.

Their side:

Dane McFarlane - Daniel Nielson - Max Spencer
Ryan Hebron - Nick Coughlan - Michael Sodomaco
Dominic Brew - Michael Barlow - Josh Clayton
Jack Henderson - Jake Riccardi - Joe Maishman
Max Augerinos - Kye Declase - Matthew Munro
Jack Berry - Matthew Hanson - Tom Gribble

Darcy Bennett - Matthew Brett - Angus Clarke - Bryan Hodgson
Ryan Kemp - Bior Malual - Alex Marklew - Baxter Norton
23P: Scott Carlin

Nielson and Coughlan probably take Gown and Bowman when he's forward, I'd put McNiece on Munro, Hartley on Riccardi and Zerk on Declase, who has struggled this year.

Reallly happy with how the team is going. Lazzarro has taken a few steps this year, got a bit bigger and better with ball in hand.
