Review: Tigers v Power

I don’t think I have ever seen a game of footy like this one. The first half was brutal as the 2 teams went head to head (literally – ask Jacob Townsend)! Then after half time and a few key injuries the contest was over and it became a case…

Rid’s Take – 2 weeks to go

There is only 2 weeks to go till the start of round 1! I don’t know about you but I am excited. For what seems like an eternity we all have been tinkering and playing with our teams. With 2 weeks to go it feels about right to do a…

Rid’s Take – NAB week 3

As people would know, I am a footy addict. And I tend to see things differently to most. There is no right way or wrong way to watch these sort of games. Some people like to watch the stats. Some people like to watch the roles. Some people only watch…

Review: Dogs v Dees

The Western Bulldogs and Melbourne Demons clashed at the Highgate Recreation Reserve in Craigieburn in what was a competitive match throughout. The Bulldogs played an inexperienced side while the Demons were close to full-strength and in the end that was the difference as the Demons came from behind thanks to a…

Review: Kangaroos v Pies

  Collingwood & North headed up to Wagga Wagga for a game in which the heat policy was enacted, meaning longer breaks and shorter quarters. Both teams played reasonably strong line-ups, though both still had a few missing and gave a few kids some gametime. It was a well-fought contest,…

Review: Bombers v Cats

Ok. I usually try and be positive about practice games but I need to be honest here. This game wasn’t the greatest. At one stage people were wondering if the Bombers would even kick a goal. I will do my best! A below strength Essendon played the Cats in Shepparton….

Review: Swans v Giants

Cross-town rivals Sydney and Greater Western Sydney met at Drummoyne Oval and played out an fiery clash. The Giants controlled the match throughout and were comfortable 34-point winners in the end with their swift ball movement equally fun to watch as it was damaging. The Swans struggled to maintain possession and were often…

Review: Eagles v Suns

West Coast and Gold Coast clashed at HBF Arena in Joondalup, WA, with the Eagles snatching victory thanks to a goal from Jeremy McGovern with just seconds remaining. The Eagles fielded a near full-strength side while the Suns played half of their best 22, but the difference in quality between the…

Review: Dockers v Crows

I really enjoyed the game between Fremantle and Adelaide on Sunday. It was played at the home of the Mount Barker football club, Sounness Park. The contest itself was very even between the 2 teams even though you wouldn’t have known it from the way the commentators just talked about…
