    Re: How Many More Wins Left In The H&A?

    Not sure what happened to the poll.

    I think we have at least 9 more wins from the 13 games left. That would put us on 17 wins, one more win over the entire comp in 2019. That probably gets us to top 2. Even if someone jumps up to match our wins, we have about 20% more than those clubs and there’s an opportunity with Roos, Suns & Hawks to surge it on the run home.

    The injury list, once fit again, should improve us drastically again. If we can stay relatively fit, I can argue we have it in us to maybe win more again.

    I recon 11 more wins. We may drop one against the Dees And the cats but that’s it.

    Bring it home doggies.

    If we beat WC over there, wowee. Hardest trip in footy (along with Geelong in Geelong).
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    Round 22 Sat 14 Aug 12:00pm Hawks UTAS Stadium - Win

    I reckon we'll do Melbourne at Docklands and they'll do us at the G, but we'll be better for the experience at the latter. Tough run of games after the next two, wouldn't be surprised if we falter in all three or at least in two of them after a few really big weeks.

    Seventeen wins for the year would be pretty good, should land us within the top two.

    Re: How Many More Wins Left In The H&A?

    I’d actually be pretty stoked to win 3 of the next 5. The next 5 games are pretty season defining for mine. In fact we’re in basically a season defining 8 game stretch. We’re 2-1 so far which I would have taken at the start.

    But it’s time to put some old demons away in the next batch of games. Finish the saints off like we should have done last season. Then beat geelong on their home deck for once. If we win this week I’m fairly confident we knock the demons off the week after. They’ll be due for a loss provided the crows don’t upset them. But I really want to get this weeks game done with. Things will unravel quick if the saints do us again. I want to bury them.

    17 H&A would be a record for us.

    We have never finished top either - love to do that.

    Some tough games in there - Melbourne twice, Geelong in Geelong, Perth twice and Port in the final round fighting for spots. Could lose the next 5 whilst still playing OK. I'll say 8 wins
    If you kicked five goals and Tom Boyd kicked five goals, Tom Boyd kicked more goals than you.

    I’d take another 8 wins from here. Should be good for top 4 and if we’re fit, anything can happen from there.

    10/13 that would give us 18 and a top 2 finish.

    I agree 100% with your assessment Jeemak. If we could pull one win from Freo, Geel and WC I’d be over the moon. Melb will be hard at Marvel too.
    I will never see #16 the same!!

    Thank goodness we've not dropped games thus far, because we're approaching a tough block now. We could conceivably drop 3 in the next month.
