AFL Teams – Round 12, 2011 – Womens Week or Queens Birthday/Pies Holiday


Going into Round 12, 2011 which will mark the half way point of the season is both Women’s Round and Queens Birthday weekend. No one told the Pies that they didn’t get the weekend off as well. Well, some of their players anyway. Darren Jolly still missing with that knee issue and Dane Swan who has been very un-Dane Swan like are amongst a group in Arizona doing a injury camp to get them ready best for the second half of the year. On top of this the Pies deep midfield will be further tested with Dayne Beams (the other Dane) likely to miss the next 4 weeks with a knee injury and the man thrown up as best in the league this year, Dale Thomas, being out with suspension after he tried to help out Clinton Jones with his Cold Sore issue!

Last years other Grand Finalist, St Kilda, will also be missing one of their gun midfielders with Joey Montagna missing with knee injury he hurt in the second quarter of last weeks game. They are considering playing highly touted Irish recruit, Tommy Walsh, in this weeks battle of the drifters when they play the Bulldogs. Its almost a case of “Loser leaves town” match (or at least loser can’t make the finals).

The other big injury story of the week is the will he, won’t he play conjurer over the Hawks Superstar Lance “Buddy” Franklin. He was a late withdrawl from last Sundays match with Freo after it was reported that he had sustained a calf injury. Depending on who you listen too, he is either highly unlikely to be risked this week or he was close to playing last week. Either way, the Hawks have erd on the side of caution all year, so you have to think he is more likely to miss then play. This would be a big blow for the Hawks as they face rivals Geelong at the G. Geelong are looking likely to regain Paul Chapman from a Groin injury that saw him miss last week.

Team will be up at about 5pm tonight (Thursday). Who are you hoping to see out or in this week?


  • Will update over the course of the weekend but for now you could go and check out The Coaches Box SuperCoach and DreamTeam Podcast for the week. In this week we started the show looking at who we can use as 8th Back, 7th mid and 8th Forward! Check it out!
  • Thursday 10:40am: Swans will miss Shane Mumford this week. They are confident he will return next week verus the Blues.
  • Thursday 12:40pm:  Lake, Hall and Hill (dropped) will not play this weekend for the Bulldogs.
  • Thursday 12:41pm: Word is that 2 rookies, Ed Barlow (formerly of the Swans) and Luke Dahlhaus will play for the Dogs this week. Barlow is described as “The strongly built utility, who played four seasons with Sydney, is expected to add crucial key-position flexibility to the Bulldogs.” Dahlhaus is described as “The former Geelong Falcons midfielder boasts superb speed and broke the record for agility at a state screening last year. Was also the leading tackler in the TAC Cup. A good stoppage player who is working to improve his disposal.”
  • Thursday 3pm: Out of WA, Daniel Kerr is in line to return for the Eagles and Michael Barlow is a chance for the Dockers. Also Pavlich has an injury and will be interesting to see if he plays through that.
  • Thursday 3pm: Tigers have promoted Tom Hislop to the senior list and this normally means that he will be named this week!
  • Thursday 3:55pm: Almost time for the teams to be released. In news in, Kerr and Shuey look to be named for the Eagles as they have already flown to Adelaide for their game this week.
  • Thursday 4:50pm: BREAKING NEWS: Franklin named! More coming shortly!
