Brisbane got off to a flying start against Collingwood in their Friday night clash at the Gabba, kicking 6
goals to 2 in the first quarter to go to a 22 point lead at the first change. But the Magpies fought back in the
second term, and by half-time Brisbane's lead was cut to 10 points. But in a disappointing second half by
the home side, the Lions were restricted to a single goal after the long break as the Magpies ran over the
top of them to win by 17 points.
It was the Magpies' small forwards who did the damage, with Paul Medhurst scoring 4 for the Magpies
and Leon Davis 3. Collingwood's backline was at their miserly best, strangling the life out of the Brisbane
attack, particularly during the second half. Jonathan Brown was restricted to just 2 goals for the day while
Daniel Bradshaw was unable to trouble the scorers. It was Brisbane's first home loss for 2009; while
Collingwood, who have travelled well in recent seasons, achieved success in their first interstate trip for
the season.

Carlton had Sydney in trouble early during their clash at the SCG, but the Blues' failure to put the Swans
away when they had them on the ropes was to cost them dearly as the Swans came bouncing back into
the contest. Some wasteful over-use of the ball and poor kicking for goal saw Carlton fail to turn their
on-ball dominance into scoreboard pressure; and although the Blues led for much of the first half, the size
of their lead was less than it should have been. And when a double from Jarrad McVeigh shortly before
half-time saw the Swans take the initiative, the lead stretched to 14 points at the long break; Carlton's
scoreline of 3.12 revealing their failure to capitalise on their opportunities.
Given a sniff, the Swans never looked back. Although Carlton scored enough goals to keep them hopeful
of somehow stealing the match, the Swans by now had regrouped and went on to complete a 17-point
win and maintain their unbeaten home record in 2009. The match was the first time a Saturday afternoon
game was played in Sydney since the Swans came up in 1982, and despite a big crowd at a race meeting
at Randwick and a Super 14 rugby match to be played at the Sydney Football Stadium that night an
encouraging crowd of over 30,000 turned up to watch the game.

Defending premiers Hawthorn suffered a shock loss to Port Adelaide, when the Power travelled over to
the MCG and stunned the Hawks with a 30-point victory.
For much of the day Port held a small lead. At quarter time the margin was 13 points, 4 points at half
time and just 2 points at the last change. The majority of observers expected the Hawks, with the home
ground advantage, tall forwards and the confidence of recent success, would run over the top of Port
Adelaide in the last quarter to take the game. But instead it was Port Adelaide who took control in the
final quarter, their 7.7 to 3.3 last quarter run taking the margin to a well-earned 30 points to move the
Power into the top 4.
Warren Tredrea continued the return to form of last week with a 6-goal haul, while Danlye Pearce, Travis
Boak and Chad Cornes all accumulated over 30 possessions . Defenders Troy Chaplin, given the task
on Jarryd Roughead and Alipate Carlile with his mission on Lance Franklin, kept the Hawk big gun
forwards quiet. Franklin and Dean Rioli scored 3 goals for the Hawks, while Chance Bateman with 33
possessions tried hard all day.

St Kilda continued their dominance of the 2009 season to date with a comprehensive 83-point victory
over a dismal Fremantle at Telstra Dome on Saturday night.
Nick Riewoldt got the Saints off to a flying start, kicking the first two goals of the game before setting up
the next two. By quarter time the margin was already 32 points. The second quarter was Fremantle's
best, with both sides scoring 3 for the quarter. But a further 5 unanswered goals to the Saints in the third
term ensured a blowout, with the Dockers only able to manage one goal for the final quarter as their
night went from bad to worse.
Nick Riewoldt kicked 5 goals for the Saints and Clinton Jones 3. The St Kilda midfield were again
picking up possessions at will, with Nick Dal Santo, Brendon Goddard, Leigh Montagna and Luke Ball
each racked up over 25 possessions as the Saints completed their dominance.

Geelong underlined their class when the Cats were 48 points too good for Adelaide at AAMI Stadium.
Gary Ablett was magnificent, with even Cats' coach admitting Ablett had stepped up to a new high. In his
150th game, he picked up 48 possessions and 3 goals; his 33 handballs equalling the all-time AFL
record. Well supported by Joel Corey, Joel Selwood and Jimmy Bartel, Ablett's Cats were too good for
Adelaide; with Crows' coach Neil Craig admitting he couldn't have asked for more from his players, but
the class of the Cats was just too good.
For much of the game, although the Crows were behind, they kept within range of the Cats. The margin
was 18 points at half time and 17 at three-quarter time, but even with the home ground advantage never
looked like stealing the game. And the last quarter was Geelong dominance, the Cats running through 7
goals to 2 to turn the result into a bigger margin than was looking likely for much of the night.
Geelong                          5.1        10.2        14.5        21.8 (134)

North Melbourne put their off-field woes of a chicken video behind them when the Kangaroos defeated
Essendon by 12 points at Docklands in the early Sunday match.
It wasn't a classic match, with both sides fumbling and struggling to build any cohesive movement; but
the Kangaroos were able to make the most of the opportunities they created, while the Bombers were
too wasteful with the ball. The Bombers had more scoring shots and more possessions, but were only
able to find 7 goals to show for their efforts.
North got out to a 2-goal lead at the first change and led by 10 points at half time. The third quarter saw
the Roos make their move, a 4 goals to 2 third term giving them a buffer. But the Bombers weren't
beaten yet, and with 2 quick goals early in the last quarter and a run of behinds saw the margin cut to
just 5 points during the last term. The second goal was a mess for the Kangaroos, with Daniel Pratt
penalised for a deliberate rushed behind, handing Matthew Lloyd the easiest of free kick goals. But at
the 24 minute mark, with the game in the balance, Hamish McIntosh goaled to ensure the Kangaroos'
safety, bringing both sides into the congested mid-table with 2 wins and 2 losses.
North Melbourne                3.3        5.5        9.7        10.9 (69)

Melbourne broke through for their first win of 2009, leaving Richmond in crisis, after the Demons held
out the Tigers to win by 8 points at the MCG on Sunday.
Richmond scored the first 2 goals of the game, but after the Demons hit back to take the lead shortly
before quarter time, the lead opened up in the second term; Melbourne running through 8 goals to 3 to
lead by 31 points at half time. At the last change the margin was still 28 points, but the Tigers finished
quickly, threatening to steal the game at various stages through the final quarter before the Demons
were saved by the bell.
In a solid team effort by the Demons, Brad Miller kicked 3 goals while Aaron Davey, Cameron Bruce and
Brock McLean were among their best. For the Tigers, Matthew Richardson kicked 4 goals, while Joel
Bowden picked up 44 possessions and Nathan Foley 32. The result was one that triggered relief in the
Demon camp, getting them off the bottom of the ladder; but one that plunged Richmond into crisis, with
coach Terry Wallace's future at the club in jeopardy.
Melbourne                        2.6        10.7        13.11        14.16 (100)

West Coast went a long way towards restoring the reputation of Subiaco as an Eagle fortress when they
defeated the Western Bulldogs by 33 points in the Sunday twilight game. The Eagles got off to a flying
start, with 6 goals to 3 in the opening quarter to lead by 20 points at the first change. The Eagles further
extended their lead in the third term, with 6 goals to 4 to lead by 34 points by three-quarter time. The
Bulldogs caused a scare in the camp with the first 3 goals of the final term, but the Eagles steadied to
take out the match and join 7 other teams on 8 points in a congested early-season ladder.
Adam Hunter and Quentin Lynch each kicked 3 goals, one of Hunter's from an impossible angle being
one of the highlights of the match. Dean Cox was a dominant figure in the ruck, while Daniel Kerr and
Matt Priddis picked up plenty of the football. For the Bulldogs, Shaun Higgins kicked 4, while Matthew
Boyd and Jason Akermanis were prominent possession-getters.
West Coast                    6.4        8.7        14.11        17.14 (116)
