Players to watch for North Melbourne
Liam Anthony – Was the leading disposals winner in last week’s match with 38 possessions and absolutely dominated. It will be interesting to see if he continues to shine game in game out.
Hamish McIntosh – Last week McIntosh had 13 hit outs, equal to that of Todd Goldstein. He also has 15 disposals and had a good performance. This week he will be up against the mighty Aaron Sandilands, which will be good to watch, as both has similar statistics last week.
Ben Warren – Warren had a great game last week and was the best forward of the ground last week against the Cats and kicked 4 goals. Keep an eye on this one he could be damaging in games this year for the Roos.
Players to watch for Fremantle
Matthew Pavlich – The Pav, is back into the forward line for season 2010 and has already kicked 3 goals and had a heap of supply. Look out for him to continue to kick bag of goals.
Garrick Ibbotson – Returning from a one match club suspension for arriving late to training, Ibbotson will be keen to redeem himself. Last season he averaged 18 disposals and 10 kicks per match.
Aaron Sandilands – Last week Sandilands had 19 hit outs and 12 disposals. This week he is facing Hamish McIntosh, who had a similar game to him last week. Definitely a match up to keep an eye on.
