Terry Wallace stood aside as Richmond coach, and this match would mark his final appearance as an AFL
coach; fittingly the opposition would be the Western Bulldogs, the team he began his coaching career with. But
it was Wallace's former charges, now being led by Rodney Eade, that would take the honours.
After an even first quarter, the Bulldogs made a break in the second term, getting out to a 4-goal lead before a
determined charge by Richmond got them back into the game. The Tigers kicked 5 unanswered goals during
time-on to take an unlikely 2-point lead into the half-time break.
But after the break, the Tigers were unable to live up to their second quarter heroics. With 7 goals to none in the
third term, the Bulldogs turned their deficit into a 42-point lead at the last change, and from there it was one-way
traffic. The Bulldogs would go on to take the match by 68 points, a result that keeps the Bulldogs clear of the
logjam of teams just behind them on the ladder; but it was a result which leaves new Richmond coach Jade
Rawlings with a lot of work to do to turn his team's sagging fortunes around. Adding to the Bulldogs' pleasure in
the result was the sensational form of Brownlow medallist Adam Cooney, who accumulated 33 possessions in
a best-on-ground performance.

North Melbourne made a bold statement early in their match against undefeated St Kilda at Docklands on
Saturday afternoon, scoring the first 5 goals of the match to put a scare into the St Kilda camp. Playing with a
confidence so often lacking by other teams taking on the Saints, the Kangaroos raced out of the block and
looked on course to pull off an upset.
But after the first quarter onslaught, the Saints slowly worked their way back into the contest. And luck was to
favour the Saints, as the Kangaroos found themselves decimated by injury; having no interchange bench to
work with well before three-quarter time and forced to finish the match with 17 men on the field. The Saints
made the most of their good fortune to fight back, taking the lead shortly before three-quarter time before a
7-goal final quarter blew the final winning margin out to 46 points in a match that, for much of the day, looked
set to be far closer. Justin Koschitzke was outstanding up forward for the Saints with 6 goals, while Nick
Riewoldt and Lenny Hayes were also prominent for St Kilda.

Although Carlton led all night in their clash against Brisbane at the Gabba, a last-quarter surge by the
home side kept the result in doubt until the final siren; with the Blues hanging on for a 6-point win.
A strong third quarter had put the Blues out to a 30-point lead at three quarter time and seemingly headed
for a comfortable victory. But within 10 minutes of the restart, the Lions had banged through four goals to
cut the margin back to just 6 points. On this occasion the Blues steadied, two more goals to Brendan
Fevola taking his tally for the night to 8 as the Blues went to a 3-goal lead. But Brisbane kept coming, and
as the clock ticked past 30 minutes the margin was again reduced to a straight kick. But although the ball
remained on the Lions' forward line for the closing stages, there was to be no miracle last-moment goal
to level the scores.
Carlton                             3.6        7.10        13.13        16.16 (112)

The time-on period of the third quarter would be decisive in getting Port Adelaide over the line against
Fremantle at AAMI Stadium on Saturday night.
Fremantle raced out of the blocks, kicking 4 of the first 5 goals to lead by 20 points as the clock ticked into
time-on in the opening quarter, but two late goals to the Power cut the margin back to within a kick at the
first change. The second quarter was goal for goal, with the Dockers still enjoying a small lead at the long
break; and the third started in similar vein.
But late in the third quarter the game was turned on its head with the Power made a break. A marking
effort from David Rodan was followed up with a goal coming from the centre break, with Marlon Motlop
breaking through for his first goal of the season. And a mark and goal from Westhoff on the three quarter
time siren extended the lead to 20 points. And with the rain starting to fall, and the conditions slippery,
there was to be no way back into the contest for Fremantle, the Power recording a 24-point win to move
into the top 8.

Tyson Edwards celebrated his 300th game in style, as best on ground as Adelaide defeated Essendon by
16 points in an entertaining clash at Docklands on Sunday afternoon that will be remembered for its
accurate kicking for goal.
Essendon got off to a strong start, kicking 4 of the first 5 goals; but although the Bombers led through the
first three quarters, the Crows were always within reach. The Crows had two factors to thank for being in
the ball game - Kurt Tippett's arrival as a force in the forward line on his way to a 7-goal haul, and their
amazing accuracy. The Crows would not score a behind until midway through the third quarter, and their
final total of 21.4 is among the most accurate in the history of the game.
The young Bombers ran out of legs in the final quarter, and Adelaide's superior fitness and ability to last
the distance saw the Crows hit the front early in the last quarter. And although the Bombers continued to
try hard all day, the Crows had too many guns who put their hand up when the game was there to be won;
none more so than Tyson Edwards in his milestone game.

Hawthorn made the front-running, kicking the first four goals of their match against Sydney at the MCG on
Sunday afternoon, but a spirited fightback by the Swans made the game far closer than it was looking like
being during those early stages.
From 16 points down at the long break, the Swans cut the margin to single figures, and then 10 minutes
into the last quarter a goal by Adam Goodes put the Swans in front. Down the other end went the ball for
Mark Williams to restore the lead for Hawthorn. But the pendulum swung firmly back to the Hawks when
Barry Hall was paid a free kick against him, followed by a string of three 50m penalties for hanging on and
then for backchat; that moved Roughead from the defensive 50m zone to the forward goal square for the
simplest of goals. With the Hawks now 2 goals clear they were able to steady and deny the Swans any
further prospect of winning. The Swans remain without an away win so far in 2009, this result seeing them
crash out of the top 8.
Hawthorn                        4.5        7.5        9.11        12.14 (86)

Geelong got away with the 4 points in their clash against West Coast at Subiaco, but not before the
Eagles put up a spirited and determined fight that kept hopes of an upset alive until late in the contest.
The Cats kicked the first 5 goals of the game within 10 minutes, but the plucky Eagles slowly worked their
way back into the contest; cutting the margin back to just 11 points at the long break. Had it not been for a
couple of posters, the Eagles may have even found themselves in front.
The Cats made a break in the third term, leading by 22 points at the last change; but two quick goals to the
Eagles saw the margin reduced to just 9 points in the last quarter. But the Cats, well lead by gun
midfielders Gary Ablett and Jimmy Bartel, steadied and the Eagles were unable to pinch the game. The
final margin of 22 points flattered the Cats slightly, with the Eagles having had their chances to take an
unlikely victory but being unable to capitalise.

Racing out of the blocks with 7 unanswered goals in the opening quarter, and recording 9 goals before
the Demons managed their first, Collingwood were always in control in the public holiday clash with
Melbourne at the MCG.
Late in the second term Melbourne launched a brief fightback, kicking 5 out of the last 6 goals before the
break to give their long-suffering supporters a glimmer of hope. But that was merely an illusion, as the
third quarter saw the Magpies resume their dominance with a 6 goals to 1 quarter to put the result firmly
out of Melbourne's reach.
The final margin was 66 points, the Magpies moving back into the top 8 while keeping the Demons firmly
positioned on the bottom. Brad Dick was the star up forward for the Magpies with 5 goals, while Scott
Pendlebury and Dane Swan were picking up possessions at will in a dominant display around the ground.
Collingwood                    7.4    10.7    16.11    19.12 (126)
