Good luck with your tipping again as it has been tough. For those who have not seen this segment I try to tip what I think are certain winners and then explain my way through the 50/50 games.
COLLINGWOOD VS NORTH - Both teams have been impressive and I wouldn’t be shocked with the result either way. I am tipping the Roos off the back of some very physical clashes over the last few weeks. This should have them hardened for a tough contest. North got Collingwood in Round 23 last year and I think they can again.
WEST COAST VS PORT ADELAIDE – It is always dangerous tipping the away team in Western Australia but I am going to stick my neck out and select Port. They are playing an exciting brand of footy and the big ground should suit their running game. The Eagles were poor last week but are much better at home. Personally I think Port are the better team.MELBOURNE VS GOLD COAST – The Demons now look much better structured with some key tall forwards and will be looking for another victory at home. When I look at the class through the middle of the ground the Suns do have an advantage. After a poor week against the Hawks I think it will be this class that gets the Suns a win.
WESTERN BULLDOGS VS CARLTON - Can the Blues finally break their duck and win a game? My thoughts are that the Bulldogs are playing more honest footy than the Blues plus play the ground better. The Blues are certainly a chance but I think the Doggies are sharper at Etihad.GEELONG VS HAWTHORN – I think both teams have improved since last year’s Prelim Final. The Cats now have ruck stocks, Hawkins back fit and the move of Bartel and Kelly out of the middle has worked. The Hawks young runners have matured and Rioli has his body right. I am tipping the Hawks runners to get them over the line.

Well in round 2 I managed 7 of the 9 winners. All certainties got up but I went the wrong way with the Swans and Giants.
This week is a particularly tough round and I get the sense that it will start to sort out the good tipsters from the rest.
RICHMOND to defeat WESTERN BULLDOGS
WEST COAST to defeat ST KILDA
HAWTHORN VS FREMANTLE – It is interesting to note that in the last five years when it comes to the Grand Final replay that the loser of the Grand Final has turned the result around 4 out of 5 times. In saying this Fremantle still have a poor record at the MCG to overcome. With the Hawks getting a couple back and Freo losing Barlow , Fyfe and Dawson I am still staying with the Hawks.
ADELAIDE VS SYDNEY – The Crows will be desperate in their first home game in front of their fans to get a victory at Adelaide Oval after losing last week to arch rival Port. The Swans have been particularly poor in their first two games and after being in Sydney last week they are starting to be on the nose a little and must turn it around this week or I fear for their season. The Crows are honest but no better so I am giving the Swans one last chance.
GOLD COAST V BRISBANE – This looks another very even game. The Lions will be keen to get a win under their belt and no better way than by defeating the Gold Coast. Brisbane have been ok but have had a tough draw. The Suns are now hard to beat at Metricon and have some genuine talent in the team. I just have a gut feeling that the Lions will notch up their first victory under new coach Justin Leppitsch.
COLLINGWOOD VS GEELONG – The Pies have a good track record against the Cats and played very well in Sydney last week so must be a chance. Geelong once again are travelling nicely with a minimum of fuss. It will be interesting to see how the two captains play in this match as they are both in hot form. I am a huge fan of Geelong and like the moves of Bartel forward and Kelly back. I am sticking with the Cats.
GIANTS VS MELBOURNE – The Giants had the opportunity to win their second game last week but simply did not have the polish to finish it off. As for the Demons they were simply awful against a strong Eagles line up. This is a more even match up but I still believe there is more class in the Giants team and they should win at home.
NORTH MELBOURNE VS PORT ADELAIDE - It is time for North to show that they have grown up. This is a winnable match particularly with the Power coming off the Showdown. The Roos at home need to take control early and could possibly do so but their form has not been strong enough at this stage for me to select them. Port have done everything right and deserve to be favourites. I am tipping the Power .
ESSENDON VS CARLTON – Both of these teams were honourable in defeat last week. The Blues kicked themselves out of the game against Richmond while with 2 minutes to play the Bombers looked certain to upset the Hawks. This game has thrown up some upset results in recent years but I am sticking with a midfield that has the likes of Watson, Heppell, Goddard, Zaharakis, Stanton and Chapman.

“I was there for the 500 to one, I was there for the 43 cans, I was there for the underarm, and I was there for the aluminum bat...........” Cricketing legend Rodney Hogg has seen it all.
Now with the English and South African tests over and the Aussies holding the No.1 ranking, just like in his hey day when he pounded in toward the crease ready to strike, there will be nothing holding Hoggie back.
The difference between Rodney Hogg and other former cricketers, is that not only has Rodney seen it all...and done it all....he is prepared to talk about it all without fear or favor.
A legend in his own time, and in his words, “In his own mind!”, Hogg, who took 41 wickets at an average of 12.85, is now recognized for his media savvy, and his firm belief in telling it how it is ...or how he see’s it!
“ Alastair Cook looks bereft of ideas out there and he’s given them nothing as a leader.”
“Kevin Pietersen is running out of friends and everything he does is disruptive...”
If Hoggie is prepared to say that while the Pom’s were still here, imagine what he’ll have to say now they are gone!
Why not have Hoggie speak at your next function, charity event, corporate golf day or sporting events or even have one of our other cricketing legends including Max Walker, Kerry O’Keeffe, Greg Ritchie, Damien Fleming, Merv Hughes, Michael Whitney, Len Pascoe, Jeff Thomson, Sir Vivian Richards, Alan Lamb, Sir Ian Botham, Sir Richard Hadley, Dean Jones, Bryce McGain and many others!

Terry’s Tips Round 1
It’s great to be back for another footy season with A Positive Move and each week I will give you my quick thoughts on the round. Good luck with your own tipping.
Collingwood V Fremantle - Unfortunately through injury I think Collingwood have selected an inferior side for Round 1.
Away from home the Dockers will exploit the holes in the Pies key position players both in attack and defence.
GWS V Sydney - Although the Giants have more senior players they are not up to the class and experience of the Swans. Personally I think that the Giants are going to have problems keeping their kids as they fill their team with older blokes. Swans easily.
GCS V Richmond - This will tell us a great deal about both teams. The Tigers have a soft draw and could possibly finish as high as 4th while the Suns must take scalps at home if they expect to take the next step.
Once again I doubt the validity of key position players for the Gold Coast so I expect the Tigers to get the job done.
Carlton V Port Adelaide - This is easily the toughest game to select and could go either way. The Blues have a great record against Port which gives them great hope. No Judd and Carrazzo is a worry but they will be up for the challenge. I respect the speed, run and carry that Port have in a very talented midfield and I think it might be just enough to give them a hard fought victory but I am very wary of the Blues.
My greatest concern with my round one tips is that I have selected all away teams which is very unusual in this AFL competition.
Once again good luck with your own tips as a flying start in tipping competitions is critical.Cheers,
