Battle of the skies with AFL Half Time Specials

The weekend half-time specials will look like a David Attenborough special – the skies will be full of magpies, hawks and eagles; interrupted only by bombers!

Friday night it’s Collingwood and Essendon – 5 V 7 and loads on the line – possible 4th for the pies and maybe 8th for the ‘dons. Supporters of both teams will be able to Start a Riot so that’s our half-time special! Race seven at Geelong, from box seven; (9.07pm) our pick is Start A Riot to win, into Collingwood to win 2nd half.

It’s Hitchcock all over again! The birds! They’re back in Saturday’s half-time special – West Coast Eagles V Hawthorn Hawks in the west; the former playing hard for a top two perch, but the Hawks could possibly swoop on the eight in the last home-and-away round for the year. Both teams need to deliver – as do we! Have a birds-eye view at The Meadows Saturday night – race seven – box three (9.22pm) – Jason Thompson’s Deliver to win, into the Eagles to win the second half.

*Bets to be placed before the linked AFL match.
