For the first time in 98 years, a team is undefeated after round 5 with a percentage of over 200. The Saints,
having already double their opposition's score over the opening 4 rounds, had a percentage booster when
they shut down Port Adelaide to win by 66 points on Friday night at AAMI Stadium.
So dominant has been the Saints' defence that the past 2 rounds have seen them only concede a total of
9 goals. 2 of them came in the dying minutes of this game, but by then the damage was already done.
The Saints took control of the game from the start, and after the Power were held scoreless in the second
term the Saints had a 56-point win at the long break. The sting had long gone out of the game by then, and
although the Saints' goals dried up after the break there was no way for Port Adelaide to salvage anything
out of what had been a dismal night. Nick Riewoldt kicked 4 and Stephen Milne for the Saints, while Lenny
Hayes won the best-on-ground medal. One of Milne's goals was a spectacular grubber from the pocket
that bounced and curved to slot nicely between the goals; a highlight on a night when the Saints could do
no wrong.

The traditional ANZAC Day blockbuster at the MCG saw a thrilling match that would go down to the wire,
the closest such match since the draw in 1995.
Collingwood made the early front-running, kicking 4 goals to 1 in the opening term, and the Bombers'
plight looked even more serious after David Hille left the field in the opening minute with a serious and
possibly season-ending knee injury; leaving Pat Ryder to play in the ruck all day. But the Bombers fought
back to level the scores at half-time and take the lead in the third term. The Bombers dominated play for
much of the third quarter, but their inaccurate 3.7 prevented them from establishing a match-winning
break. Captain Matthew Lloyd, his career tally remaining on 899 goals, failed to bring up his milestone
despite creating numerous opportunities.
Into the final quarter and Collingwood again seized the initiative and took the lead. At the 25 minute mark,
with the Magpies leading by 14 points, it looked all over. But the Bombers finished with a wet sail, kicking
3.1 in the dying moments to snatch the game. David Zaharakis, in just his 5th game of AFL football, was
the hero, kicking the winning goal with just 3 seconds on the clock to give the Bombers a remarkable
victory.

It wasn't convincing, but Hawthorn did enough to get the points when they edged out West Coast by 17
points at Aurora Stadium on Saturday evening.
Torrential rain made ball-handling difficult; and with both sides playing a tough defensive style of game
for much of the night it wasn't just rain that was causing the forward lines to be flooded. After an even
first quarter, Hawthorn threatened to run away in the second term before the Eagles pegged them back.
Early in the last quarter West Coast took the lead, but a late 5-goal burst by the Hawks was enough to
get them over the line.
Jarryd Roughead and Garry Moss each kicked 4 goals for the Hawks, a good effort in difficult conditions;
while Sam Mitchell picked up an amazing 40 possessions. For the Eagles, Matthew Rosa was a
standout with 35 possessions, while Dean Cox had the better of the ruck and Ben McKinley tried hard up
forward with 3 goals.
Hawthorn                    1.3        4.5        6.7        11.7 (73)

Richmond broke through for their first win of 2009 when the Tigers took control in the second half to
defeat North Melbourne by 36 points at Docklands on Saturday night.
The Kangaroos kicked the first 3 goals, but Richmond found a determination and resolve that had been
so conspicuously missing through the early rounds to work their way back into the contest. It wasn't
always attractive to watch, but the Tigers had to work hard and took the lead shortly before half time.
Once they had a sniff there was no letting go, with the Tigers shutting down the Kangaroos' forward line
after the break to kick 4 goals to 1 in the third term. With Matthew Richardson off the field with a
hamstring injury, Jack Riewoldt stepped up to kick 3 goals up forward, while the Tigers' backline was
magnificent. To make a bad day even worse for the Kangaroos, captain Brent Harvey was forced from
the field in the second quarter with a dislocated elbow.
But this was Richmond's night. And as the strains of "We're from Tigerland" reverberated around the
stadium, their long-suffering players and supporters finally had something to celebrate.
Richmond                    2.2        6.7        10.12        13.16 (94)

Fremantle had been under pressure after their insipid opening to the 2009 season, but the Dockers
bounced back in the only way that matters when the Dockers completed a 21-point win over Sydney at
Subiaco on Saturday night.
The Dockers got off to a flying start, leading by 26 points at the first change and blowing the margin out
to 42 points at the long break. The Swans tried hard to bridge the deficit during the third term, several
times getting the margin back to 30 points, but the Dockers had a sniff and weren't letting go; and the
Swans could get no closer than the 30 point margin. During the final quarter the Swans did finally get the
margin back into the 20s, and at the 14 minute mark the margin had been cut to just 21 points and the
Sydney side looked to have the momentum. But Luke McPharlin stepped up, going for a run from the
centre, weaving around several opponents and doing 3 bounces before running inside the 50m line and
shooting successfully to wrap up a morale-boosting victory.
Fremantle                    6.4        11.9        16.10        18.13 (121)
Sydney                        2.2         5.3          11.3          16.4 (100)

Geelong continued their unbeaten 2009 campaign when the Cats achieved complete dominance over
Brisbane to win by 93 points in the early Sunday game at Skilled Stadium.
On a bitterly cold day with a blustering wind that made conditions difficult for the players, the Cats made
it look easy during an explosive first half. By half time, having kicked 13 goals to 3, the lead was already
65 points. Brisbane were never in the contest, and it was just as bad in the second half where the Lions
were held to just 2 scoring shots. By then the only interest was whether the final margin would reach
100 points, and although the Cats fell short they were still able to pick up a remarkable win. Cam
Mooney and Tom Hawkins scored 3 for the Cats, while Gary Ablett made a mockery of the uneven wind
to score a remarkable goal from the sideline, the ball curving perfectly in the wind to produce a
remarkable goal.
Geelong                      5.4        13.8        15.11        18.18 (126)
Brisbane                     0.2         3.3           4.3             5.3 (33)

Carlton's topsy-turvy 2009 season took another twist when the Blues broke their 2-match losing streak
with a 43-point win over the Western Bulldogs under the roof at Docklands on Sunday.
The Bulldogs would rue their inaccuracy early, their score of 1.6 in the opening term enabling the Blues
to create a lead that would provide a platform on which they would build their victory. A 7 goals to 3
second term saw the lead increase to 27 points by half-time; and with the Blues having a sniff of a win
they were never a chance to let the Bulldogs back into the contest.
Carlton's midfield was again magnificent, with Ryan Houlihan, Kade Simpson, Bryce Gibbs and Chris
Judd all accumulating over 25 possessions for the day; while Brendan Fevola scored 4 goals. For the
Bulldogs, veteran Brad Johnson scored 4, while Shaun Higgins and Matthew Boyd picked up plenty of
the football. The result sees the Blues leap-frog the Bulldogs to take third place on the ladder.
Carlton                        4.1        11.3        15.7        21.7 (133)

Adelaide moved into the top 4 when the Crows held out Melbourne to win by 17 points in a lacklustre
twilight game at the MCG.
In wet conditions before a small crowd, the game lacked any atmosphere, and the on-field performance
of both sides was below par. The match was marred by a string of turnovers, fumbles and errors that
had those watching shaking their heads in amazement.
Particularly dismal was Melbourne, despite having the home ground advantage. The Demons were
unable to score a goal until late in the third term. Adelaide weren't much better, but at least managed a
goal every quarter to maintain some semblance of keeping the scoreboard ticking over.
Early in the last quarter the Demons suddenly came to life, a run of 3 goals creating a chance they could
steal an unlikely win. But the Crows held firm to pick up a crucial away win. Surprisingly, the Crows are
undefeated on the road so far in 2009; only their home form is letting them down.
Adelaide                      2.4        4.6        5.7        7.9 (51)
