NORWOOD demonstrated it is again the team to beat in the SANFL, after smashing Port Adelaide by 73 points in a round one clash at Norwood Oval on Easter Thursday.
With just one goal up to three-quarter time, the Magpies had a nightmare start under new coach Ken McGregor, and how they respond next week against reigning wooden-spooner Sturt, at the same venue – a Double Blues home game, will be a better indication of where Port is headed

ADELAIDE and Port Adelaide have joined a chorus of AFL teams wanting their own stand one teams in state league competitions, which has further been enhanced by selection issues.

FORMER Collingwood players Leon Davis and Paul Medhurst have been included in the WAFL state squad to take on the SANFL next week. Davis was on the radar of some AFL clubs and was linked to Port Adelaide, West Coast and Fremantle during last year’s pre-season draft after quitting Collingwood last year. Former Port Melbourne
The suspension of Geelong premiership defender David Wojcinski for three weeks, effectively five weeks after byes are taken into account, brought into question the VFL draw which sees teams allocated four byes and a week off for the VFL representative game against Tasmania on the 26th May. Frankston, Casey, Box Hill, Coburg and Sandringham all

After the completion of the 2012 AFL season the league will be revolutionised by the introduction of free agency. For eligible players this will give them the ability to leave their current club, bypassing the draft and trade periods, and essentially pick their next employer themselves. For the AFL, this will be an unprecedented change. In the
