AFL Teams – Round 1, 2012 – Week 2 – And now for the Rest


 AFL Teams – Round 1, 2012 – Week 2

The Giant start to the season (and by Giant I mean the new team and the number of viewers on Seven and Foxtel) is over and now we look to the other 8 games that will kick off tomorrow with the now Traditional Blues V Tigers match at the G! This year promises to be even more interesting then normal with the Tigers having an excellent Pre-season and the Blues going winless meaning that many feeling that the Tiggers could actually beat the Blues. (Click here to go to the Updates section) If that doesn’t have your blood boiling, perhaps the replay of the Prelim between the Mighty Hawks (okay, so I am a Hawks fan) and the Magpies, on the Friday night will get your juices going! Both teams had fair NAB cups with many in the media believing the Hawks should be the Favorites to win the flag but they have struggled to beat the other contenders in the last few years and need to get off to a good start. They have one of their best chances to do so this week with the Pies facing a log injury list, including their Captain, Nick Maxwell, who has been ruled out of the game. The Hawks on the other hand have few injuries with only best 22 players missing being Bailey with a wrist injury that will see him likely not back till around the Hawks round 13 bye and Gilham and Roughead who are returning from serious injury last year. Gilham hasn’t seen game time yet but Roughead isn’t far away having played half a NAB cup game and last week in the VFL. So onto the sides. Who are you expecting to be named in your team? What are the guys your waiting on for your DreamTeam/SuperCoach side? Teams for the Thursday game will be out today (Wednesday) with the rest out tomorrow and refined over the course of the weekend. Don’t forget to come back here for the teams (or easier to remember is (yes that is .co not .com).
