Round 6 review
GROUNDHOG Day for the Tigers, a day to forget for Hawthorn and who are the legitimate challengers for the 2016 premiership?
It’s becoming a predictable story for Richmond and the boys dissect the tale for Damien Hardwick’s men — and where to from here. To trade or rebound? If it’s the former, what price would a Brett Deledio yield at the trade table?
The Hawks took a big hit at the weekend and Sammy Edmund got his nerd on with some super stats on why Clarko’s mob are finding their premiership defence that much tougher.
“Every single stat you care to mention, they’re struggling in,” he says.
The team that beat them, GWS, deserves plenty of credit. Mick Warner prefers to call them ‘Frankenstein’.
“The AFL’s created this monster and for the next 10 years we’re just going to have to sit back and watch it win premierships ... Eddie (McGuire) will do a head gasket when this hits full speed, which is not far off it because Leon Cameron has got his hands on a Ferrari.”
The Giants are one of a number of sides capable of going all the way in 2016 according to Sammy. He lists a few, including the Cats who he’s big on.
North Melbourne is also impressing. Many of the names are familiar, but the boys discuss one man who most AFL fans have never heard of.
Plus there’s the usual segments. Sammy says forget Game of Thrones, Ross Lyon TV is must-see entertainment each week, while Huddo could see the Demons’ drop-off coming.
It’s a big SuperFooty podcast.
