Aussie Rules: All to play for on Super Sunday

Carlton and Collingwood go head-to-head in arguably the game of the round on Sunday, while Hawthorn also take on the Western Bulldogs and St Kilda entertain the Sydney Swans.

Sunday could not get much bigger with the outcome of all three games set to have an impact on the top eight of the ladder.

Carlton versus Collingwood is huge, with the Blues needing to win to guarantee their place in the top eight and play finals, while the Magpies need the points to earn a place in the top four.

That would boost their chances of winning the Premiership. The stakes could not be much higher for both sides in front of what will be a packed MCG.

The Western Bulldogs could leapfrog over Carlton into the top eight if they can win against Hawthorn in Tasmania and Collingwood beat the Blues.

St Kilda have a slim chance of making the eight but would need to beat the Sydney Swans and hope that both Carlton and the Bulldogs slip up.

That will be easier said than done as the Swans know a victory can take them back into the top two and two guaranteed home finals.

There is a huge day of action to look forward to so let’s take a closer look at each match-up as game-day fast approaches.


What: Hawthorn v Western Bulldogs
Where: University of Tasmania Stadium, Tasmania
When: 13:10 (AEST) Sunday 21st August 2022
How to watch: Kayo, Foxtel
Odds: Hawthorn 2/1, Bulldogs 2/5

Hawthorn have shown some very promising signs under first-year coach Sam Mitchell in 2022 and they will be looking to end the campaign on a high.

Sitting 13th on the ladder, finals are out of reach, but a win is still the order of the day as the re-build continues.

They were well beaten away at Richmond last week but have been in decent touch with three wins out of the last five games.

The Western Bulldogs will be ruing a bad defeat against Fremantle a couple of weeks ago. That loss on home soil put a huge dent in their finals hopes.

They bounced back well with a win over Greater Western Sydney last week and now need another and hope other results go their way to make the eight.

The Bulldogs won by 42 points when the two sides met in Melbourne earlier in the season. Josh Bruce and Taylor Duryea return to the fold.


What: Carlton v Collingwood
Where: MCG, Melbourne
When: 15:20 (AEST) Sunday 21st August 2022
How to watch: Kayo, Foxtel
Odds: Carlton 91/100, Collingwood 91/100

The build up to this one has reached fever pitch as two old rivals go head-to-head in front of over 90,000 supporters at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Carlton were seconds away from booking a finals spot last week before Melbourne booted a late goal and now they have to beat the Magpies to make sure of a place in the eight.

They are on a shocking run of form at just the wrong time having lost four out of the last five games, while the Pies beat them by four points earlier in the season.

Things may be stacked up against Carlton as Collingwood are in hot form, but at least they can welcome back Adam Cerra and Zak Williams.

Collingwood need to win to make the top four and boost their flag hopes. They had won 11 on the bounce before losing to Sydney last week and will be keen to respond.

The Magpies are one of the hot fancies for the premiership but need to finish in the top four. They are boosted by the return of Jordan De Goey and Finlay Macrae.

What: St Kilda v Sydney Swans
Where: Marvel Stadium, Melbourne
When: 16:40 (AEST) Sunday 21st August 2022
How to watch: Kayo, Foxtel

Another huge game to wrap up the day and the final round of the home and away season.

St Kilda need a miracle to make the top eight and a win is an absolute must. They have lost the last two however and face a Swans side that are bang in form and need a win to finish in the top two.

The Swans have won the last six games on the spin and after beating Collingwood with ease last week, confidence should be sky high.

Sydney have no fresh injury or selection concerns for the clash, while St Kilda are boosted by the return of Dan Hannebery, Josh Battle and Tom Campbell.
