Round 3 Preview
Two games of the later games today should be absolutely epic while one of the games will be a snore.
Cats v Demons
The Cats are one of the darling teams of the AFL, everyone thinks they are a great team, and Melbourne are up and coming but the Cats will win easy, Think again.
While the Demons where not overly impressive in beating Carlton last week, Geelong where more than off the boil against the Roo’s and lucky to get the win. A couple big outs for the Demons with Lewis and Hogan suspended but get Vince back in. This may be the simple difference especially Hogan who is the key forward for Melbourne.
Cats should get the job done Danger will drag them if he needs to, expect Hawkins to again kick his 3 goals. This game won’t be as free flowing as others with both teams having tight defensive games. Both teams undefeated so far both this season Cats will remain it for another week but the Demons lose no friends.

Bulldogs v Dockers
Dogs will win it’s just a matter of how far, the Dockers are in trouble and while people forgave them for last season this year won’t be so kind. It is hard to believe their fall from grace, defensive power house and premiership contender to this! The Dogs on the other hand continue to just run all over opponents and the Dockers will not show the resistance that Swans and Pies did. Fremantle have made 6 changes to the side this is just a disaster waiting to happen.

Crows v Power
Game of the round top of the showdown, it does not get any bigger than this in Adelaide. Crows have won the last 3 showdowns, the Power have 21 of the 41 between the two sides. Can the Power machine that has demolished Dockers and swans keep up with the Crows who have demolished both the Giants and Hawks. Sit back and enjoy what should be one of the games of the year! Jenkins out is tough for Crows and Hartlett back in for Power, but it never seems to matter for the Crows they just keep finding ways to grind sides into the turf with constant pressure and high skill level. Power are as skilled and seem to have great fire power upfront but lack a little of the consistency of the Crows.
These games are notoriously tough, physical and at times just brutal, both have a lot to aim for this year.
X factor for Power Gray and The Hoff
X factor for Crows Betts and Jacobs
