Will you Back Buddy to Boot the First Goal For a Third Successive Game?

Will you back Buddy to boot the first goal of the game against the Kangaroos in round 11? The Swans forward has kicked the opening major in his last 2 outings.

Having ended an 8 game winless streak against the Swans in round 4 last year, normalities resumed when North Melbourne were belted by the same opposition in the Preliminary Final. The Kangaroos will be hoping they won’t have to wait quite as long to triumph over Sydney once more and get their chance on Saturday night when they host the 2014 minor premiers at Etihad Stadium. Buddy Franklin starred as the Swans ended the North’s campaign in 2014 and he’ll be aiming for another strong performance this weekend. Back Franklin to grab the game’s opening goal and you could be in for a big bonus on your winnings thanks to Centrebet’s First Goalscorer Special.

Buddy to Boot another Opening Goal?

After a slow start to the season by his standards Lance Franklin has shifted through the gears in recent weeks! The Swans sharp shooter has scored the first goal of the game in his last two outings and is looking to make it a hat-trick in Melbourne on Saturday. In fact Buddy has booted 10 goals in the last 2 weeks, his opener against Carlton in round 9 was one of 7 majors, while he added 2 more goals against Gold Coast last weekend after landing the first blow of the match. Franklin’s tally for 2015 is now 30 but he’s got a bit of catching up to do if he wants to secure back to back Coleman Medals.

Buddy booted 5 against the Roos in last year’s final while nobody can forget his career high 13 against North Melbourne back in 2012. It’s unlikely he’ll top that effort but he’s paying around $6.50 to get the first major in Saturday’s match and if that’s the case; he’ll have plenty of time to a notch another.

Centrebet’s AFL offer is available on all round 11 games, so register with the bookmaker and back a few first goalscorers this weekend.
