AFL Round 1 Results & Wrap Up: The season got off to a flyer with the Tigers nailing down an opening round win over the Blues. Don’t let the scoreboard fool you, though, Carlton came to play on Thursday night, actually leading at half time. Things then got interesting on Friday night with the Bombers proving too good for the Crows at Etihad. James Stewart kicked three in the Dons 12-point win, leading many to wonder if Adelaide are suffering from a case of finals hangover. The weekend started off just as we expected – the Saints manhandled the Lions, the Power pumped Fremantle, while Gold Coast escaped Cairns with a win over the Roos in horrid conditions. Hawthorn were by far the biggest surprise, or perhaps the same could be said for Collingwood. The Pies looked flat in their 34-point loss to the Hawks, but the same can’t be said for the Dees. Melbourne were so unlucky not to escape Sunday’s game against the Cats with a win, but a Max Gawn missed set shot cost the Demons the points.

AFL Round 2 Results & Wrap Up – The Easter weekend round was packed full of drama and excitement which was kicked off with redemption, of sorts, for Adelaide as they beat the defending premier Richmond at home on Thursday night. It was a low scoring and dour game at Etihad on Good Friday when North Melbourne and St Kilda continued their Easter rivalry. Both teams were lacklustre in front of goal and the field kicking was just as bad. There were plenty of upsets for the round with both Gold Coast (Carlton) and Fremantle (Essendon) beating their more fancied rivals on Saturday. The upsets continued on Easter Sunday with first the Eagles comfortably taking care of the Western Bulldogs away from home, and then the Power heading to Sydney and beating the Swans in an inspired performance against one of the premiership favourites. The round concluded on Easter Monday with an epic clash between bitter rivals Geelong and Hawthorn and fans were no less surprised with the finish as they were amazed. The Hawks controlled the game, and the Geelong superstar midfielders, for the best part of three quarters, before the Cats came storming home in the last quarter. The Hawks clung on to a 1 point win when Jarryd Roughead marked and kicked the all important point inside the last two minutes.

AFL Round 3 Results & Wrap Up – The round started with Collingwood’s first win of the season over their bitter rivals Carlton. The win takes pressure off coach Nathan Buckley, for another week at least. The Lions put in an inspired performance against the Power at The Adelaide Oval only to go down by an agonising five points. Melbourne finally broke their drought against the Kangaroos on Saturday afternoon. A string of 17 losses came to an end with a 37 point win at the MCG. The Swans beat their cross-town rivals on Saturday night at the SCG to keep them inside the top eight. After losing in Adelaide last week, Richmond bounced back with a 13 point win on Sunday. It was their ninth straight win at the MCG. The Western Bulldogs start to season 2018 has been nothing short of disgraceful in the opening two rounds however they produced clearly their best performance of the year with a 21-point win over the Bombers at Etihad. A hamstring injury to Gary Ablett has further compounded a 15-point loss to the Cats in the West. A dominant performance in the middle of the ground by Nic Naitanui helped the Eagled kick the last 6 goals of the game to overrun a brave and injury riddled, Geelong side.

AFL Round 4 Results & Wrap Up – The Adelaide Crows have fallen outside of the top 8 after losing to Collingwood at home on Friday night. The fear is real for the Crows after they were comprehensively beaten and genuine hope has arisen from a determined and skilful Collingwood team. The Brisbane Lions failed to kick a goal to half time and finished with just two majors for the game as they went down to Richmond by a massive 93 points at a wet MCG on Saturday afternoon. Brownlow medallist Dustin Martin starred with 6 goals. Tasmanian, Ben Brown booted 5 goals in Hobart on Saturday night to help his North Melbourne Kangaroos comfortably beat a lack lustre Carlton side. The first of two upsets on Sunday happened at Etihad Stadium as Essendon bounced back from a poor performance last week against the Dogs to record a twenty-two point win over Port Adelaide. The Dees started very well against the Hawks at the MCG before being comprehensively beaten in the final three quarters of the game. Alastair Clarkson has the Hawks firing and they now find themselves inside the top four.

Round 5 Results and Wrap Up – The Adelaide Crows headed to the SCG as big outsiders on Friday night, but they still managed to upset the Swans in a gutsy road win. Tex Walker came under scrutiny during all of last week but proved the difference with four goals to lead his side. We saw our first draw for season 2018 when the Saints and Giants were level after the final siren at Etihad Stadium, but all eyes were of course on the traditional ANZAC clash between the Bombers and the Pies. Unfortunately this time around, the Bombers were no match for what looks to be a very dangerous Collingwood side. It was all over by half time with the Pies kicking away by 75-points.

AFL Round 6 Results & Wrap Up – The Western Bulldogs started off the round with an extremely important win on Friday night against Carlton. The Blues remain winless and have now slumped to their worse start to a season since their inception into the VFL in 1897. The Cats blew a 22 point three quarter time lead to go down to the Sydney Swans in Geelong on Saturday afternoon. The Swans have now beaten the Cats in Geelong in their last 3 trips there. It was an important day of football on Sunday for all teams but the first game was a mini elimination final in many ways. Melbourne were up for the challenge and ran out 36 point winners over Essendon who face an up hill battle to extend their season past August. An enthralling game of football emerged on Sunday afternoon at the MCG between two in-form teams. Collingwood matched the defending premiers Richmond for three quarters before the Tigers flexed their muscles to run out comfortable winners. The only other side to be 5-1 with the Tigers is West Coast after they dismantled the Fremantle Dockers in the first Western Derby played at the new Optus Stadium.

AFL Round 7 Results & Wrap Up – It was always going to be a tough ask for the Giants to head into Geelong and walk away with a win. GWS fell miserably in the end, going down by as much as 61-points. Taking care of the Suns in Ballarat, Saturday saw the Bulldogs string together two wins on the trot, a game that placed Jackson Macrae firmly in the Brownlow Medal conversation. The Hawks also made it two straight with their big victory over the Bombers, but while Essendon’s downward spiral continues, the Eagles just keep on soaring. West Coast walked away comfy 42-point winners at Optus Stadium, but things were certainly much closer between the Swans and Roos in Sydney. North somehow pinched a two-point win over the Bloods in the final minutes, sending them to seventh on the ladder. The Crows closed Saturday out with a convincing thumping over the Blues at home, while the Tigers and Demons followed suit on Sunday. Fortunately for fans, the AFL saved the best till’ last on Sunday afternoon as the Lions and Pies played out an instant classic. It was heartbreak again for Brisbane who probably deserved a win, but Jordan De Goey’s last minute goal in the final term saw the Pies get up 19.7 (121) to Brisbane 18.6 (114).

Round 8 Results & Wrap Up – Talk about kicking things off with a bang. Sydney prevailed in a thriller over the Hawks on Friday night, as emerging full forward Ben Ronke booted seven goals. The Blues finally got a win on the board on Saturday in their first convincing performance of the season. Carlton’s Curnow brothers combined for five goals to dust off the Bombers, adding further salt to Essendon’s already open wound. How about the Adelaide derby, though? The Crows led by as much as seven goals at half time, only to concede all momentum in the third term to eventually lose by a heartbreaking goal to Steven Motlop in the final minute. A tough act to follow indeed, but the Tigers meeting against the Roos certainly lived up to it. North fought hard all game and really gave the reigning premiers a run for their money. Richmond came good in the fourth quarter though, showing the nerve of a true premiership side to win by 10-points.

AFL Round 9 Results Wrap-up – It was a wet night on Friday at The Adelaide Oval as the Crows accounted for a wayward Western Bulldogs. The dogs kicked 2 goals and 14 behinds in a disappointing display. The Kangaroos solidified their position inside the top 8 with a 43 point win over an under strengthen GWS side in Tasmania. The Power yet again took the points home from China against the Suns in a solid performance. The upset of the round happened on Saturday afternoon at the MCG after the Bombers responded to a poor past month with a high energy, pressure based win over the Cats. Melbourne were unforgiving on Sunday afternoon as they trounced the Blues by 109 points at the MCG. The Brisbane Lions recorded their first win of the season at the Gabba on Sunday afternoon against the Hawks. Luke Hodge gathered 19 disposals against his former side as the locals lapped up a rare win in what has been a difficult year to date. The match of the round between the top of the ladder Richmond and West Coast was poised at half time with both team’s level. It was the Eagles who asserted their dominance in front of their home fans in the second half however, running out 47 point winners and finishing the round on top of the AFL ladder.

Byes: Gold Coast Suns, Port Adelaide

AFL Round 10 Results Wrap-up – The Dogs hung tough with Collingwood up until half-time on Friday night, before conceding seven second half goals to the Pies in a 35-point loss. Collingwood’s victory sends them back into the eight, but the same can’t be said for the wayward Giants – Saturday’s 35-point drubbing at the hands of a rejuvenated Essendon side has their entire season in doubt. Meanwhile, the reigning premiers marched on, recording their 14th straight win at the MCG over the Saints. The Lions put up another gallant effort at home against the bloods, but turnovers ultimately cost Brisbane against the Swans. The Cats look back on track, and so does Gary Ablett – his lone goal brought the house down at GMHBA Stadium. Things really kicked into gear on Sunday though, as all doubts of West Coast on the road vanished. The Eagles recorded their third win in Melbourne this season with a 15-point win over the Hawks, a loss that sent Hawthorn spiraling down to ninth on the ladder. Speaking of traveling, the Crows must be glad to be out of Alice Springs. Their road trip was woeful, falling 8.7. (55) to 23.8 (146) against the Demons. Rounding things out, how about North Melbourne? Sunday’s win over Fremantle marked their third in five games, bumping them up to a handy fifth place on the ladder.

AFL Round 11 Results Wrap-up: AFL Round 11 came and went with plenty more blowouts. The Blues fought hard up until half-time on Friday night against the Swans, but Sydney eventually kicked into gear, running away with their fourth straight win 13.13 (91) to 8.7 (61). In terms of the scoreboard, things only got worse on Saturday – the Dees manhandled the Dogs, the Cats belted the Suns in Gary Ablett’s return to Metricon, while the Tigers ran away with a 71-point win over the Bombers. Perhaps the only highlight from Saturday was Hawthorn’s narrow three-point win over the Power down in Launceston, a win that puts the Hawks right back in the hunt for a spot in the eight. Sunday was much the same – the Roos first quarter onslaught ended any chance the Lions had, the Pies made it three straight wins with their defeat over the Dockers, but the Giants’ 16-point win over the Crows at Adelaide Oval was by far the biggest stunner. Ryan Griffen and Zac Langdon combined for six goals against the Crows, knocking Adelaide out of the eight.

AFL Round 12 Results & Wrap-up: Round 12 got off to a flyer with the Power pummeling a Dusty-less Tigers on Friday night. With four teams on the bye, Saturday’s action was short and a little one-sided – the Cats surprised the Roos, the Giants embarrassed the Suns, while the Swans added further misery to St. Kilda’s woes. There were a few doubts surrounding Essendon ahead of their trip to Brisbane, but the Dons came out firing in the first half to make life hard for the Lions. The shocker of the round then followed, as the Dockers earned their fifth win of the season in a nail-biter over the Crows in Perth.

AFL Round 13 Results & Wrap-up: On paper it was blockbusters galore, but Round 13 failed to live up to the hype. As expected, the injury riddled dogs struggled to get out of the gate early against the Power in Adelaide, while Friday nights potential Grand Final preview turned rather one-sided. It was a low-scoring game at the SCG, but the Swans defence completely shut down the likes of Josh Kennedy and Marc LeCras, finishing with a 72-57 win. Things only got worse on Saturday as the Blues looked dismal against the Dockers at Eithad, losing their fourth straight game. The Suns and the Saints turned into a last minute shocker as Gold Coast allowed a huge three quarter time lead to slip in the final term, losing by just two-points at the final siren. The Hawks and Crows were close at half time, but Hawthorn kicked into gear in the third, keeping the Crows off the scoreboard to walk away 88-32 victors. The Sunday blockbuster between Geelong and Richmond was back and forth for most of the game, but the Tigers stormed home to claim the 18-point victory and the right to sit atop the ladder once again.

AFL Round 14 Results & Wrap-up: So much for a Thursday night blowout. The Bombers shocked the country over in Perth, hammering the Eagles by 28-points to keep their Top 8 hopes alive. Friday night provided plenty of entertainment, but Port proved they are the real deal with a resounding 10-point win over the Demons. On paper, Saturday looked like blowouts galore, but the Dogs and Roos turned into game of the round. Jack Ziebell’s last minute goal saw North get up by just two points in a thriller.

AFL Round 15 Results & Wrap-up: It shaped up as game of the year, and it was only fitting to see the reigning premiers walk away with a big 26-point win over the Swans on Thursday night at Etihad. Friday night topped it though, with the Dogs pulling off a miracle over the Cats, holding on to win 103-101. The Crows kept their finals hopes alive at home against the Eagles, but the same can’t be said for the Hawks – their loss to GWS saw Hawthorn slip all the way down to 10th. To round out the proceedings, the Lions’ second win of the year came in breakout fashion, manhandling the Dockers from the opening siren to win by a convincing 55-points.

AFL Round 16 Results & Wrap-up: The Cats were out for revenge against the Swans, and that’s exactly what they got on Thursday night. Their big win down in Sydney secured a place back in the eight for Geelong, but the same can’t be said for the Crows – their dejavu loss to the Tigers on Friday only further put their season in dount. The Hawks were impressive during their win over the Dogs on Saturday, a win that snuck Hawthorn back up to eighth. The Lions also came good against the Blues, making it two wins in a row. Sunday’s blockbuster between the Pies and Bombers didn’t disappoint – Collingwood’s 16-point win kept the Pies second on the ladder and in prime position with just seven weeks left to play.
