There’s plenty of footy happening over the next two rounds, right across the country, starting with Hawthorn v Port Adelaide in Tasmania on Saturday afternoon (25 May). The Hawks are back at UTAS Stadium in Launceston, starting at 1.45pm.

At 2.10pm, Western Bulldogs v North Melbourne will get underway at Marvel Stadium, with both sides desperate to arrest their losing form.

The following day (26 May) sees St Kilda host Carlton at Marvel Stadium. We then fly across the country to as Fremantle face the Brisbane Lions at Optus Stadium, with both games starting at 3.20pm in their respective time zones.

Round 11 will begin with Friday night footy (31 May) at Marvel Stadium as North Melbourne host Richmond. The stage is set for North, who will need to capitalise on prime time-slots with a huge display against one of the competition’s powerhouses.

The next day (1 June) begins with GWS taking on Gold Coast at GIANTS Stadium, at 1.45pm. Geelong will then host Sydney at GMHBA Stadium at 4.35pm.

That night we cross to The Gabba as Brisbane Lions host Hawthorn in Saturday night footy. The final game of the round then sees West Coast Coast face the Western Bulldogs at Optus Stadium, starting at 3.20pm.
