2021 Round 2 Results Blog

Round 2 is over with some great games being played, finishing with a fizzer in the Dockers vs Giants game. I had a last minute call-up for a corporate box seat which was great to experience even if the game was a drag. Still a long way to go in the season, but a few studs are showing early signs of being in contention at the end of the year. Check out all the latest odds here. Carlton vs Collingwood A terrible start to my tipping round, I had convinced myself that the Blues were “coming”, thankfully I’m not a Carlton supporter like my uncle. Collingwood bounced back from a lackluster performance in round 1, with Taylor Adams taking advantage of Adam Treloar leaving the midfield group. Taylor should feature in Collingwood wins throughout the season as the #1 mid in the side now. 3 T. Adams 2 J. Crisp 1 J. De Goey Geelong vs Brisbane Two sides who didn’t get off to the best start in round 1, at first it looked like Brisbane were going to back up their poor round 1 effort, but they stormed home only to be controversially beaten in crunch time. No Danger, no problem? Neale got shut down for most of the game and Selwood delivered some vintage form. 3 J. Selwood 2 C. Guthrie 1 T. Hawkins Sydney vs Adelaide These two teams surprised everyone in round 1 knocking off powerhouses in Brisbane and Geelong. Tex was magnificent in a loss and has really turned back the clock in the first 2 rounds, but it was all about the Swans young brigade with Gulden, Campbell, McDonald and Warner all starring. These kids will be fun to watch and Sydney fans should be pumped in what was a rebuilding year. All the media was on Buddy who looked fit and ready, with a little rust to knock off before he gets back to top form. 3 E. Gulden 2 I. Heeney 1 T. Walker Port vs Essendon This game went as planned with Port dominating the Bombers. Zak Butters having an absolute blinder, we can lock him in for the 3 votes here without any debate. Port lost a few of their midfield brigade in this one with Shiel and Caldwell to miss several games. 3 Z. Butter 2 O. Wines 1 T. Boak St Kilda vs Melbourne Two wins on the trot, Demons fans will be holding their breath expecting the typical crumble. In years past St Kilda would have come back and won this one, but Melbourne showed some heart here led by Oliver who is one of my smokies for the medal. Steele tried his best dominating in the middle and kicking 3 goals. 3 C. Oliver 2 C. Salem 1 J. Steele Gold Coast vs North This could be another very long season for the shinboners, getting demolished by the Suns in this one. Who am I kidding, it “will” be a very long season. Nothing much to report here, Anderson showed why he was a high draft pick and the rest of the Suns went about their business. Nice to see them heading in the right direction. 3 T. Miller 2 N. Anderson 1 B. Ellis Hawthorn vs Richmond There is a guy they call Dusty, he’s known to be a slow starter ramping himself up before finals. If this is his idea of a slow start then the rest of the competition may as well bow down now. Tom Mitchell looks to have returned to his ball magnet best after recovering from his broken leg a few seasons ago. 3 D. Martin 2 D. Prestia 1 T. Mitchell Western Bulldogs vs West Coast This was probably the game of the round from what I saw at stages as I had settled in to watch this along with flicking channels to see Bryce Cotton destroy another NBL team, but I ended up having to make the mad dash to the Dockers game instead. I watched the final 5 minutes on my phone and kind of wish I hadn’t. Even though the game was up and down and close all the way through I felt 3 Dogs stood out from the rest. 3 M. Bontempelli 2 J. Macrae 1 J. Dunkley Fremantle vs GWS Personally the only good thing to come out of this game for me was the free food and beer, but I’ll play. The Dockers kids look better and better every week, with Brayshaw being so damaging he eventually copped the De Boer tag, which didn’t really slow him down. Mundy showed some vintage form, but not sure how longer the aging Docker can bang and crash in the middle. Fyfe got blindsided and could miss next week at the least due to the new concussion rules. When GWS kicked that first goal in the opening seconds, I heard Optus Stadium collectively gasp, but luckily for the Dockers that’s all GWS decided to do for the game. 30+ behinds kicked in this game, Dockers got the win, but both teams will need to be better than this if they expect to make the top 8. 3 A. Brayshaw 2 D. Mundy 1 N. Fyfe
