I go into this round one point from the lead in the tipping competition.
Melbourne are travelling well and the hitout against the Western Bulldogs showed that the Demons have got some legs and can play for four quarters.
The Bomber Preview
A difficult game this week against Sydney. The game is at night at the SCG, where Sydney are difficult to beat. There is only one way to play the SCG and that is straight down the middle—it is a very short ground but it has very wide wings where visiting teams sometimes become lost. It is imperative that the players in the centre square get their share of the ball. If Hille plays as well as he did last week, and Lucas can keep kicking goals Essendon are in with a chance.
