2012 Classics - Predictions & Discussion (MSAC)
Seems like a couple of teams in Vic are a fair way ahead of the rest, while 1 in SA is well ahead of others. A couple of Vic teams came to Easter to give us a guide of where to expect the SA teams to come.
SA predictions: Forestville 1-4, Sturt & Woodville 9-12, Southern 13-16.
Top 4: Bulleen, Hawthorn, Kilsyth, Forestville.
A couple of teams again in Vic seemingly a fair way ahead of the rest, but Forestville in January took it right to them.
SA Predictions: Forestville 1-4, Sturt & West 9-12, Eastern 13-16
Top 4: Knox, Bulleen, Forestville, Melbourne with Norths from Sydney a chance too.
After Easter it appears there's a fair margin between the Vic & SA teams in this grade. Norwood made the final but 1) lost it by 35 & 2) only beat 1 Vic team en route to the GF, which was McKinnon (who didn't qualify for Classics).
SA Predictions: Norwood & Southern 9-12, Centrals & Sturt 13-16
Top 4: Dandenong, Melbourne, Hills, Knox
Forestville have had some success already so far in tournaments with a win in January & runner up at Easter. Gap between SA & Vic teams seems much closer in this grade.
SA Predictions: Forestville 1-4, Sturt 5-8, Centrals & Southern 9-12
Top 4: Melbourne, Forestville, Hawthorn, North Bears.
Dandenong predictions to follow later. Feel free to post your thoughts, just be sure not to mention specific players.
