THE Melbourne Football Club may not have won but they at least played well enough for fans and the media to ease up on the pressure that they have piled onto the club as Richmond notched their fifth win of the season with a 34-point victory in front of 39,148 fans at the MCG.
Indeed while the Demons walked off the field with a sense of having achieved something, the Tigers were less than enthusiastic about their own performance as they struggled to put away their surprisingly feisty opponent
THE Western Bulldogs, who have won just the one match for the season and that was in round one, are in desperate need of replenishing entering their nine clash against St Kilda on Saturday. After the disappointing loss to the Gold Coast Suns, the Bulldogs could look to Nathan Hrovat for a recall after he
RICHMOND’S Nick Vlastuin, the club’s top pick of the 2012 National Draft, has been rewarded for hi efforts in Saturday’s victory over Port Adelaide with the Round 7 Rising Star nomination. Vlastuin’s efforts in the the Tigers’ 41 point win over the Power included 23 disposals, 11 marks and one goal. Vlastuin was the ninth
HAWTHORN has announced that they have signed a new deal with yet another star player not named Lance Franklin, after revealing this morning that Jarryd Roughead has agreed to a two year contract extension. With one year still remaining on his current contract, the new deal will see the Hawks forward remain with the club
AFTER losing Taylor Walker the question that hung over this Adelaide Crows team was who would step up and provide the team with it’s target in the forward line.
After handing the GWS Giants a 135 point loss, the Crows would seem to have found the answer to that question with Tom Lynch having a career day with a 10 goal performance.
Lynch, 22, was traded from St Kilda to Adelaide after the end of the 2011 season as part of a three-way deal with Richmond, which saw Ivan Maric go to the Tigers, and with the Saints getting the Crows’ second-round draft pick
NORTH Melbourne coach Brad Scott said he is in awe of Majak Daw after his break-out performance against the Western Bulldogs and won’t deny the hype ahead of the Daw and Nic Nat show against West Coast next week. “I’ve got no problem with the inevitable hype and excitement,” Scott said. “We’ve just got to
VICTORIA’S 17-point loss to Western Australia in Northam on Saturday was the first time the Vics lost to WA since 1991. Frankston coach Simon Goosey, who was an assistant to head coach Gary Ayres, said Victoria was disappointed in the end result, knowing that it led the match for most of the day. “It was disappointing.
THE Essendon Football Club has announced that Dyson Heppell has agreed to a two year contract extension with the club. Heppell, 20, won the Ron Evans Medal in 2011 as the NAB Rising Star award winner for that season and has been a star midfielder for the Bombers ever since they selected him with the 8th pick
THE Tasmanian under 18′s have suffered a 59 point loss to the Eastern Ranges in their first game this year as part of their lead up to the 2013 NAB National Championships. In very cold conditions the match started out as a scrappy affair with Eastern eventually settling their nerves better and setting up a
IT was first against worst according to the AFL ladder but the game proved to be far more interesting than any would have expected.
Maybe it was Kevin Sheedy finding a little something extra against his old club or maybe it was just complacency by the Bombers, but in a game of two very different halves, Essendon had to shake off a 21 point halftime deficit to defeat the GWS Giants by 39 points
THE Carlton Football Club has announced that Jaryd Cachia will make his senior debut for the club in tomorrow’s game against Melbourne at the MCG with vice-captain Andrew Carrazzo being withdrawn due to a corked calf.

IN mild conditions at Preston City Oval on Sunday, Port Melbourne outgunned a gallant Northern Blues outfit to take a 16 point win. The Borough had a ripping start, kicking six goals to the Blues’ two, to take a 26 point buffer into quarter time. It wasn’t all smooth sailing for Port, with key forward
THE Brisbane Lions secured their second win of the season after a hard fought win over the Melbourne Demons at The Gabba in front of a disappointing crowd of just 19,018.
In a scrappy affair that won’t make too many 2013 highlight reels, Brisbane did just enough to see off the plucky Dees who were hoping to get their second win in succession

FLAGGING changes to a team that lost to Collingwood by 34 points, Richmond coach Damien Hardwick has given the strongest signal so far that Nick Vlastuin, the club’s top draft pick, may have his debut this week. “He’s in the mix, there’s no doubt he’s been in the mix for quite some time,” said Hardwick
FREMANTLE has secured the services of defender Michael Johnson for a further two years. Johnson, a life member at the Dockers, is an integral part of the sides backline.

A WEEK is a long time in football may be a well worn cliché but it aptly describes the change in fortunes between Round’s 1 and 2 for the Frankston Dolphins. Bullish about their 2013 season prospects, Frankston were blown away by the Casey Scorpions in the season opener. The Dolphins lacked cohesion, looked slow
HAWTHORN youngster Jed Anderson has been selected as Round 3′s AFL Rising Star nominee. Anderson played a pivotal role in Hawthorn’s massive win on Sunday against Collingwood at the MCG.
