Essendon’s fairy-tale comeback continued last week against a solid Brisbane Lions outfit as they moved to 2-0 for 2017.
Carlton were wasteful against the Melbourne Demons and went to 0-2, and they will need to be better with their ball usage to be competitive against the Red and Black.
Essendon have looked really sharp at times in both games so far this year. However they have dropped away at stages and let their opposition back into the match. John Worsfold would be really impressed with fourth quarter efforts of his side in both matches so far.
We are still only early days in 2017 but Essendon just look to have something really good going. Their young midfield group has been super impressive and the Blues will have their hands full containing the supply to the Bombers forwards.
Zach Merrett is undoubtedly a super star and compliments the likes of Watson, Heppell and Goddard. There is some real depth in this Bomber midfield and the future looks very bright.
Carlton have been inconsistent and lack the polish to be a good side at this stage.
