So, given the somewhat surprise win last week: can we make top four?
We are one win behind Port, Footscray, and Casey. Equal with Richmond.
Port (3rd) play Box Hill (2nd, away) and Collingwood (8th, away).
Footscray (4th) play us (7th, away) and Willy (1st, home).
Casey (5th) play Willy (1st, home) and Werribee (9th, home).
Richmond (6th) play Sandy (home, 11th) and Coburg (away, 17th).
We play Footscray (4th, home) and Geelong (12th, away).
Willy and Box Hill are excellent tips to win three of those games, we control the result of one of the remaining five.
Top four (even third!) remains plausible, though we’d probably need to have Richmond choke.
It’s particularly relevant as most likely Willy and Box Hill will get the home finals in that first week, and teams 5 and 6 will go to Port Melbourne instead.
