AFL Teams – Round 3, 2012 – Can Tigers over come their Demons?


AFL Teams for Round 3, 2012

Its only round 3 yet we already have the commentators talking about teams seasons being basically over. No game this week has this theme more then the 1:45pm match at the G on Saturday between the winless Demons and Tigers. While the Tigers can argue games against expected top 4 contenders, Carlton and Collingwood (who will each other this week as well), is the reason for their winless start, the footy world will come down hard on them if they can’t get over the hapless and perhaps unlucky Demons.

The Demons should see the return of Moloney and Martin from injury that will help solidify there side but perhaps fans (at least of the fantasy game) are hoping the Tom Couch, who was upgrade from the rookie list before the season, will get his chance at the big dance after being very impressive at the VFL level. It will also be interesting to see if Aaron Davies gets a reprieve after being dropped at the end of a tough week last week. The Tigers on the other hand will lose handy forward Jake “The Pushup” King. Addam Maric is likely in the frame to get his spot.

Carlton and Collingwood will battle in Friday night footy and both could get some help for their defenses. Carlton look certain to regain their best defender, Michael Jamison and maybe even Nick Duigan. It is likely that Andrew “Sky” Walker will be given another week to get over his recent quad injury. Pies Coach Nathan Buckley has flagged at least 3 changes with Skipper Nick Maxwell finally returning from injury, Sharrod Wellingham returning from his club imposed suspension and Cameron Wood likely to be piked to support Darren Jolly in the Ruck after Dawes struggled in that role in the first two rounds. Nathan Brown, Alan Didak and Ben Johnson have been pencilled in to play in the VFL.
