The Western Bulldogs took their home game against Port Adelaide to Darwin, and ensured they retained
their place near the top end of the table with a comfortable 54-point win over the hapless Power. The
second quarter was the difference between the sides, with the Bulldogs taking the quarter 8 goals to 2 to
ensure the game was already out of Port’s reach at half-time. 2001 Brownlow Medallist Jason Akermanis
was again in unstoppable form for the Bulldogs, while veteran Brad Johnson was also prominent.

Melbourne took on Brisbane at the MCG for the first time since 2001, and in a stunning boilover the
Demons took the game ahead of the highly-fancied Lions by one point. The Demons got off to a strong
start, kicking 5 goals to 2 in the opening term and leading until the last quarter when the Lions hit the front.
With Simon Black and Luke Power in midfield dominating possession, and with Jonathan Brown up
forward kicking his 5th goal, it was looking like Melbourne’s brave effort would fall just short. But Melbourne
refused to give in, with a courageous pack mark by Brad Miller in the goalsquare enabling the Demons to
regain the lead with just a minute left on the clock, and then to hang on for dear life to record their second
win of the season.
Melbourne                    5.4    6.6   10.8    14.9 (93)

Essendon’s third win on the trot, a 4-point thriller against Fremantle at Subiaco Oval, revived hopes that
despite the Bombers’ horror run early in the season their finals hopes may not yet be over. But the
Bombers were made to fight hard for their win by a determined Fremantle side who finished the stronger
with a 5-goal final term. The game was a war of attrition, with injuries plaguing both sides during the
match; and when Chris Tarrant goaled to put the Dockers within a kick with just minutes to go, a close
finish was assured. Adam McPhee then became the hero for the Bombers, landing the hip-and-shoulder
bump of the season to deny Byron Schammer the run that could have given the Dockers the winning play
of the match.
Essendon                       3.2       7.5       11.9    14.11 (95)

Adelaide’s hopes that their home ground fortress at AAMI Stadium could help lead them to an upset win
over top side Geelong were to be comprehensively dashed as the Cats put on a clinical display to
overwhelm the home side by 68 points. Brownlow Medallist Jimmy Bartel and Rising Star Joel Selwood
were both in fine touch as the Cats seized the initiative from the opening bounce, holding the Crows to just
a point in the first quarter and racing to a 45-point lead by half time. Adelaide’s third loss in a row sees the
Crows struggling to remain in touch with the top 4.

Collingwood maintained their recent dominance over Sydney in the traditional split-round blockbuster at
ANZ Stadium, holding the Swans at bay for much of the contest to take out a 29-point victory. The Swans’
second goal was not to come until time-on in the third term, and by then the Magpies had already ground
their way to a match-winning lead. But the Swans sparked a mini-revival in the final quarter, kicking the first
4 goals within 10 minutes to send a few nerves through the Magpie camp before Travis Cloke swooped on
a loose ball to put the issue beyond doubt. In a largely defensively-minded and tough contest, the
entertainment value was provided by young Magpie excitement machine Dale Thomas with two
spectacular marks.

Hawthorn’s twin towers, Jarryd Roughead and Lance Franklin, were again the difference as the Hawks returned
to the winning list with a comfortable 57-point win over West Coast at the MCG. Getting off to a flying start,
Hawthorn kicked 4 unanswered goals in the first term and led by 36 points at the long break. But West Coast
fought back in the third term, kicking the first three goals to cut the margin in half and give the visitors a sniff. But,
just when they looked to be getting back into the contest, a 50 metre penalty set up Buddy Franklin, and from there
on the Hawks ran away with the contest.

Richmond were celebrating their centenary of their admission to the AFL, wearing a heritage black and yellow
striped jumper for their match against traditional rivals Carlton in front of a blockbuster crowd at the MCG. Leading
for much of the day, and with a 1-point lead at the last change, it was looking like a memorable day for the Tigers
was in store. But Carlton spoiled the party in the last term, kicking the first 7 goals of the quarter to run away to a
30-point win and move into the top 8.
Carlton                            1.5        5.9        10.12        17.16 (118)

Only a small crowd was on hand on the Gold Coast as North Melbourne took on St Kilda, and early on it appeared
they were likely to witness the Kangaroos record a victory. Kicking 4 unanswered goals in the first term, they led
for much of the game and were 16 points clear at the last change. But at that point the Kangaroos ran out of legs,
and the Saints took over the momentum; hitting the lead within 10 minutes of the restart and going on to record a
15-point victory. Gold Coast junior Nick Riewoldt was instrumental in the Saints’ last-quarter comeback, while
Steven Milne’s 3 last-quarter goals also played a key part in turning the match on its head.
St Kilda                       0.3        4.3        6.7        12.12 (84)
