The Half Way Point
At the half way point of the year, 2015 looks to be extremely exciting in terms of what will happen in the second half, at this stage there is a long list of teams that can make the final eight. Other than Fremantle who have only lost one game, there is uncertainty as to how the top 4 will finish, Hawthorn once again are starting to show its dominance but will be without star forward Jarrod Roughead for some time. The Sydney Swans are showing the league that they can play without its guns Buddy Franklin and Kurt Tippett.
The last week of AFL was filled with amazing scenes as every game paid respect to the late Phil Walsh with both teams combining at the end of the game to join arms with each other to have a minutes silence and pay respect, this was done in an appropriate manner Australia wide, while the Adelaide Crows V Geelong Cats game was cancelled.
The Essendon Football Club are in crisis meetings due to its current form. While the club is sticking with coach James Hird the problems just keep hitting the club with Jobe Watson now out for the season. Its do or die for the North Melbourne Football Club as they need to win 7 out of the last 9 games to be a contender to make the eight, while Brad Scott has been absent for the last 4 games due to back surgery the pressure is certainly on the coach to perform as he is in his 7th year as the senior coach.
Momentum is with the Richmond Football Club winning 4 out of its last 5 games and sitting 6th on the ladder, they take on Carlton this week who are rebuilding after the dismissal of Mick Malthouse, you would think the Tigers will come away with the win and continue is good form.
