It’s not often that we see two teams who are as desperate for a victory as Essendon and Melbourne in Round 6 of the Home and Away season. Both the Bombers and Dees came into 2018 with high expectations.
Those aforementioned expectations have not been met, with the Bombers sitting 13th and the Dees sitting 14th on the AFL Ladder after six rounds. With such an even competition, It isn’t the 2-3 record that is the concern, but the way both teams are losing.
For those who are keen to take the Good Friday match away from North Melbourne and St Kilda after their poor game, well then you must take Anzac Day away from Collingwood and Essendon. What we witnessed from Essendon on the biggest stage in Home and Away football was nothing short of horrendous.
Essendon finished the game with 120 marks, 90 of which came in the back half. They looked slow, without identity, with no one in a Red and Black jersey willing to take the game on. The end result was a 49-point with the Bombers kicking only one goal in two quarters and only seven for the match.
Only 19 hours prior, Melbourne didn’t do much better. They kept the contest against Richmond close in the first quarter, but then allowed 13 goals to seven in the final three-quarters. Richmond finished with a 46-point victory.
The Demons have allowed a combined 33 goals over the last two weeks, only kicking 14 of their own. The Dees look like they are a shambles.
