2021 Round 8 Results Blog

Another round, another 54 votes dished out by the umpires. It’s still tight at the top, but I have an individual leader for the first time in weeks. We’re still a long way to go, so without further ado, here are my votes for round 8. Latest odds as always can be found here.

Richmond vs Geelong

Two of the powerhouse Victorian teams met in the first game of the round, with Geelong making light work of the Tigers on their home turf. There were goals aplenty with Cameron, Rohan and Hawkins doing most of the damage.

3 J. Cameron

2 G. Rohan

1 C. Guthrie

Gold Coast vs St Kilda

Game 2 involved two teams who have been stuck in the mud for some time and looking to improve on previous years' efforts. This one was close and it looked like the Suns were doing enough, until Saints kicked a few goals in a row to snatch the victory.

3 J. Billings

2 J. Steele

1 T. Miller

GWS vs Essendon

This game looked to be going as planned, GWS at home vs the struggling Bombers. The Giants didn’t expect the fight the Bombers gave them almost stealing this one, if only there was a little more time for Bombers fans.

3 T. Taranto

2 Z. Merrett

1 J. Kelly

North vs Collingwood

The kids at North are showing a lot of heart, but it wasn't enough to get close enough to the Pies to give them a scare. Pies needed a win here otherwise they would’ve been at rock bottom.

3 J. De Goey

2 D. Moore

1 A. Hall

Melbourne vs Sydney

The game was close at times with a valiant Sydney putting in a lot of effort, but it felt like the Demons were in total control. It was nice to see other players stand up for the Demons other than the usual suspects.

3 C. Oliver

2 C. Mills

1 J. Hermes

Port vs Adelaide

Barely a showdown here with Port doing away with their crosstown rivals. The Crows started off the season looking like they may have turned things around, but have sunk back into their poor form of the last few years.

3 T. Boak

2 K. Amon

1 R. Laird

Hawthorn vs West Coast

West Coast decided to turn up to an away game, and not just for 1 or 2 quarters instead hanging around till the final siren. They put the Hawks to the sword and did it with ease. With an absolutely depleted backline I was surprised to say the least.

3 A. Gaff

2 T. Kelly

1 D. Sheed

Western vs Carlton

I can’t even imagine being a Blues supporter, this was almost worse than consistent losses, at least you know it’s coming. Blues looked to have sewn this game up, but the Dogs showed why you never give up because anything can happen. Eddie Betts wound back the clock, it seems like a lot of 30+ veterans have done the same this season, but it wasn’t nearly enough to lock in a win.

3 M. Bontempelli

2 S. Docherty

1 J. Weitering

Brisbane vs Fremantle

With uncertainty in WA due to new COVID cases, Fremantle bit the bullet and made the trip to Qld to forego their true home game, they probably wish things turned out better. The Lions controlled this from the get go with the Dockers making a last ditch effort that was too little too late.

3 J. Lyons

2 D. Rich

1 H. McCluggage
