Friday night footy at the MCG saw the Hawks hold off a fast finishing Blues side .It was a low scoring , fiercely contested tussle between two top four teams .This weekend sees the Saints , Bombers , Bulldogs , Lions , Freo and Crows travel interstate whilst the Magpies , Gold Coast , Power , Eagles , Swans and Kangaroos host visitors at home . Geelong score a rest and in a battle of co-tenants at the MCG , Melbourne play Richmond on Sunday afternoon at the MCG .
Much jostling for the top eight spots , particularly 5th , 6th , 7th, and 8th spots , will play out over the weekend . Off field media posturing is also occurring ,whilst sledging is rife , between opposition club coaches and players . Conjecture as to who will coach which team , and who will play off in the finals is also receiving much media attention .Faithful fans will get to matches , expecting great entertainment Â , wearing their teams ,Â footy jumpers , jerseys , guernseys.
Its 3 to go and counting .
