AFL Teams – Round 3, 2011 – Hasey shade of St Kilda


(Click here to go to the Updates section) (Skip directly to the Teams)

So last years Grand Finalist have had wildly different fortunes to start the season. The priemers have dominated two middle to lower ranked sides where as the Saints are winless with a loss to Final 4 contender Geelong and a draw against a mostly Riewoldt-less Richmond. But the worst part of the start for the Saints is the loss of spiritual leader, Lenny Hayes, to a season ending knee injury. There is calls in the “market place” (as Ross Lyon would call for it) for the Saints to add some youth to their side, but perhaps what they miss most of all is favorite whipping boy, Kosi. Whats that old saying/song lyric about “you don’t know what you’ve got till its gone”? The pies in contrast will only get stronger with Mick Malthouse and their match committee having to work out who makes way for Skipper Nick Maxwell. Not a bad issue to have.

The Bulldogs have the unofficial bye this week (i.e. playing the Suns), and although the Sun’s Coach Guy McKenna says they will be taking in the same 22, the Dogs look to strengthen their side with the addition of Lindsey Gillbee and Brian Lake. Hawks need to find a replacement for the suspended Rioli, but before the Tigers fans get excited, they have to find a key defender with injury and suspension taking out arguably there 3 best tall defenders. Essendon will have to go around without David Hille, while the twitter word is that former Tiger, Andrew Collins, could play his first game for the Blues (with Dreamteam and SuperCoaches hoping it isn’t at the expense of Curnow or Durgian!).

Swans have earmarked athletic Key Postition player, Alex Johnson, as a likely in for their clash with West Coast. The Eagles will be looking for a replacement for Beau Waters who will miss an extended period that will make it hard for the Eagles to keep their 2 game win streak going.

So what other changes do you see this week? As normal teams will be available as soon as they are in! Check back for the mail as the day/weekend goes on!
