Melbourne will take on Carlton at Casey Fields on Saturday night. With the final round of the season and Melbourne sitting in 2nd, this is Melbourne’s chance to wrap up their place in the top 2.
Melbourne have had a stellar season, only dropping the 1 game and are only 2nd on percentage. If they beat the Blues who have had a less than average season, winning only 4 games including their last 3 consecutively, Melbourne will secure at best a top 2 finish and will go on top after the game. If by some miracle St Kilda beat Adelaide, Melbourne will finish 1st, but the Dees need to focus on getting the job done and secure a top 2 spot and a home preliminary final.
The players who you want to get into your fantasy teams and who could make a differences based on the last games performance include:
Daisy Pearce- 17 disposals, 13 kicks, 4 handballs and a whopping 5 goals.
Karen Paxman- 17 disposals, 11 kicks, 6 kicks, and 2 goals.
Tayla Harris- 15 disposals, 11 kicks 4 handballs and a goal.
Mimi Hill- 25 disposals, 13 kicks, 12 handballs and 3 marks
Gab Pound- 23 disposals, 15 kicks, 8 handballs and 3 marks.
Jess Good- 10 disposals, 6 kicks, 4 handballs and 2 goals.
Melbourne will be very unlikely to blow this top 2 guaranty opportunity, and it is unlikely for Carlton to squeeze into the top 6 even if they cause the monumental upset, as results will still need to go their way.
Prediction: Melbourne by 25-points.
