The traditional Thursday night season opener between Richmond and Carlton at the MCG saw the Tigers come
into the game full of confidence after a pre-season campaign that saw them claim the scalps of Hawthorn and
Geelong. In contrast, the Blues had not won a game in the pre-season, and had a few key players absent. But
pre-season form is a notoriously unreliable indicator of opening round form, and so it was to prove again as the
Blues ran away late in the game to record a 44 point win.
The game had barely started when Jarrad Waite found himself in the umpire’s notebook, after a late challenge
on Dylan Grimes. A bright start by the Tigers saw Brad Miller fly high for a spectacular mark in the opening
minute, and although that kick was unsuccessful, Tyrone Vickery and Shaun Grigg quickly got the Tigers going.
But the Blues fought back late in the quarter with the next three goals before Robin Nahas restored the
Richmond lead shortly before quarter time.
A fast-running and free-flowing first term was followed by a scrappy, error-prone second quarter; as both sides
squandered numerous chances. Eventually Jack Riewoldt broke the goal drought, but it would be a rare
moment of joy for the Tigers as the Blues switched into gear with five of the next six goals to half time; Eddie
Betts snapping one of them and setting up two others.
The Blues led by 19 points at half time, and two quick goals to start the third term put them 31 points clear
and seemingly cruising to victory. But after the Blues looked set to run away, the Tigers suddenly clicked into
action. The Tigers kicked the last four goals of the quarter, culminating with a sensational snap over the
shoulder by Jack Riewoldt, cutting the margin to 12 points at the last change.
And the Tigers weren’t finished yet. The first goal of the last quarter, and then Dustin Martin had a shot from
40 metres out that would have reduced the margin to just a point. But Martin’s kick was a shocker, barely
registering a point. The Blues used their sub, putting Kane Lucas on, and within a minute Lucas on the lead
marked 30 metres out and kicked the steadying goal. A minute later, a virtuoso effort by Chris Yarran as he ran,
bounced and snapped from the boundary line for an early contender for goal of the year.
That was the end of the Richmond charge, as the Blues took control in the later stages of the game. Seven
goals to two for the quarter turned a game that looked set for a close contest into a 44-point demolition.

A Friday night shootout at the MCG saw Hawthorn gain some small degree of revenge for last year’s Preliminary
Final, when the Hawks pulled away to record a 22-point win over Collingwood.
The Magpies started strongly around the ground, but some wasteful finishing would let them down. The lead
see-sawed during the first quarter, with the Magpies six points ahead; although the Magpies should have been
further ahead. And it took just a minute into the second term for the Hawks to level the scores.
The second term was a shootout, with goals flowing with regularity as the forwards on both sides got
on top. A marathon 36 minutes of action saw the Magpies twice get to a 13-point lead before the
Hawks took control with the last five goals of the quarter to lead by 15 points at the long break. And
with the first two goals of the third term, the Hawks looked well set with a 26 point lead.
But the Magpies weren’t finished yet, and came storming back into the contest as the third term
progressed. A run of five goals to two saw the margin back to six points at the last change; and early in
the final quarter, a snap by Dale Thomas gave the Magpies the lead.
But the fresh legs of substitute Jack Gunston then proved critical, as he was picking up plenty of the
ball, and a brilliant snap from a tight angle on the forward pocket restored the Hawthorn lead. And in
the final stages of the game, Lance Franklin stood tall and strong with three final quarter goals.
Franklin finished with five goals, while Sam Mitchell picked up 33 touches to set up numerous chances for
the Hawks. Scott Pendlebury was Collingwood’s best. Although the result in no way makes up for the
disappointment of getting so close and missing out on last year’s Grand Final; it gets the Hawks’ 2012
season off to a flying start.

It had been an emotional fortnight in the lead-up to the season for Melbourne. Former Demon legend
and President Jim Stynes had lost his long battle with cancer. Tributes flowed before the game, and a
memorial was held at the ground. But once Saturday afternoon’s game got under way, the reality of the
desperate state of the Melbourne Football Club was underlined, as the Demons were barely competitive
in a 41-point loss to the Brisbane Lions.
The first quarter, not surprisingly given the emotional buildup and that both sides are expected to
struggle this season, wasn’t one that reached any great heights. The Demons, with the home ground
advantage, got out to an early lead and held the advantage by 11 points at quarter time. But the Lions
fought back in the second term; and after the lead see-sawed several times during the quarter, the
Lions led by four points at half time.
The game was in the balance at half time; but it was tilted firmly in Brisbane’s favour in the premiership
quarter. The Lions kicked the first six goals of the third quarter, taking a stranglehold on the game as
they ran the ball, finding space and leaving the struggling Demons in their wake. At three-quarter time,
the Lions held a 35-point advantage.
By then the sting had largely gone out of the game; but the Lions would rub further salt into the
Demon wounds by winning the last quarter. The Demons were flat, outran, out-pressured and showed
little spirit or drive for the ball. It was a welcome start to the season for the Lions, who finished third last
in 2011 but started the new season with an away win. But it was a result that poses serious questions
for the Demons, leaving new coach Mark Neeld under no illusions as to what a challenging role he has
taken on this season.

Adelaide went into the opening round in top form, with the NAB Cup silverware; and continued their
momentum when they defeated Gold Coast by 69 points at Metricon Stadium on Saturday evening.
The Crows burst out of the blocks, taking the game by the scruff of the neck as they peppered the
goals with regularity in the first quarter. 15 scoring shots to four in the opening term put the game firmly
Adelaide’s way; although the lead could have been even greater, but for some inaccuracy in particular by
Kurt Tippett. But with a 31-point lead at quarter time, the Crows were well set.
The Crows continued their form throughout the game, and despite missing several chances, they would
increase their lead in every quarter. Although never quite matching the run of seven goals in the first
term, four goals in each subsequent quarter ensured there was no prospect of the Suns getting back
into the contest.
But Adelaide’s win could have been even greater but for the contribution of Gold Coast’s Gary Ablett.
The Suns’ captain was sensational, grabbing a remarkable 47 possessions, a record for a player in a losing
side; let alone a side beaten by more than ten goals. Time and again, Adelaide were frustrated by Gary
Ablett's lone hand.
But with the exception of Ablett, the Crows were dominant. Taylor Walker finished with five goals and
Kurt Tippett four; while Scott Thompson accumulated 39 possessions. The Crows, after finishing fourth
last in 2011, start the season with an important away win.

It was a tough draw for defending champions Geelong, scheduled to cross the Nullabor to take on
Fremantle away in the opening round. But it was still a shock result at Patersons Stadium on Saturday
night when the Dockers stunned the Cats by four points.
Straight kicking was the order of the first quarter, with neither side registering a behind. It was goal for
goal early, but the big talking point came when Hayden Ballantyne received a free kick and goal. The
niggling Docker taunted Geelong full-back after the goal, and Scarlett retaliated with a hit that saw
Ballantyne gifted with a free kick directly in front for another goal and Scarlett’s name in the umpires’
report book. To make matters worse for the Cats, James Podsiadly also found himself reported in the
opening term.
The Dockers led by 12 points at quarter time, but the Cats fought back in the second term. Taking the
lead midway through the quarter, the Cats got 12 points ahead during time on before a late Fremantle
goal cut the margin to five points at the long break.
The third quarter was an arm-wrestle, the lead changing hands several times as the Dockers added four
goals to three. Two sides, evenly matched, were vying for supremacy but neither could break away; and
the Dockers led by a point at the last change.
With the first two goals of the last quarter, the Dockers looked headed for victory; but the Cats kept
fighting back in a contest that would go down to the wire. For much of the last quarter, the Dockers
were only ahead by a kick. But the Cats were unable to regain the lead, and the clock ran down to give
the Dockers a hard-earned upset win to start their season and give new coach Ross Lyon the perfect
start in his new colours.

For much of the Sunday afternoon’s clash at Docklands it appeared Essendon were cruising to victory.
But a late challenge by the Kangaroos caused some nervous moments for the Bombers, and the game
would come down to a kick after the siren.
The first quarter was goal for goal, with the Kangaroos seven points ahead at quarter time. After the
quarter time break, both sides went on the attack and the goals flowed freely. The Bombers had a run
of four in a row to go 19 points ahead midway through the quarter, but the Kangaroos fought back
during time-on to reduce the Essendon lead to nine points at half time.
The Bombers took the upper hand in the third quarter, with Brent Stanton picking up possessions at will
to drive the Bombers forward time and time again. Four goals to two for the quarter put the Bombers
22 points up at three quarter time, and when the Bombers kicked the first goal of the final quarter, they
looked to be cruising to victory.
But the Kangaroos weren’t finished yet, and a late surge would see the game go down to the wire. The
Bombers had slowed to a walk, and when they id get the ball forward they would score only behinds of
them. At the other end, the Kangaroos found a run of five unanswered goals to get the margin back to
three points. Moving forward again, the ball was marked by Hamish McIntosh, just inside the 50 metre
line on a tight angle.
The game had come down to that kick, with the siren sounding as McIntosh lined up his shot. But the
kick sailed wide, the chance to steal the win was gone and the Bombers had hung on; relieved rather
than jubilant that they had received a first-up win.

West Coast got their season off to a strong start, travelling to Melbourne and picking up four valuable
points on the road with a 49-point win over Western Bulldogs at Docklands on Sunday afternoon.
West Coast’s pre-season preparations had been disrupted by injuries to key forwards Mark LeCras and
Mark Nicoski. There were fears the Eagles would struggle for goals; but wasted little time in showing
that they had forward power. Six goals in the first quarter got them off to a flying start, as the Eagles
got out to an 11-point lead at quarter time. And with four goals apiece in the second term, the Eagles
were 13 points clear at half time.
The premiership quarter saw the Eagles set up a match-winning break. Josh Kennedy put his hand up to
become the West Coast forward spearhead, as they kicked six goals to two in the third term. The
Bulldogs were missing chances when they did get the ball forward, while the Eagles were creating
better chances and getting themselves 34 points clear at the last change.
The game was safely won, with the Eagles going on with the job in the last quarter to take out a
49-point lead. Josh Kennedy finished with seven goals, while Matt Rosa picked up 33 possessions in a
best-on-ground performance. For the Bulldogs, Clay Smith contributed four goals.

Port Adelaide, after a disastrous 2011 season, got 2012 off to a positive start when the Power pulled off
an upset four-point win over St Kilda at AAMI Stadium on Sunday evening.
The Power burst out of the blocks in the first quarter, with the first four goals of the game as they got
the jump on St Kilda to go to a 19-point lead at quarter time. But all semblance of defence crumbled in
the second quarter, as the Saints fought back. A high-scoring shootout would see the Saints kicking
seven goals to three for the quarter, with the Saints hitting the lead late in the quarter and leading by
three points at half time.
A thrilling third term saw the lead constantly changing hands. Five goals were scored in the quarter, each
of them resulting in a lead change; with the Power back in front at three-quarter time with a five point
advantage.
With the first two goals in the final quarter, the Power looked to have got to a match-winning lead. But
the Saints weren’t to be denied, and with two goals in the final minutes the margin was back to within a
kick. The Saints kept the ball on the forward line in the final minutes, but were unable to find the
winner; with the Power, by now visibly tiring, saved by the bell but relieved to record a first-up win.
It had been a thriller. Not the highest standard of game ever, but with momentum swings and a close
finish, it had been an entertaining contest. And the four valuable competition points a welcome morale
boost for the Power; but will raise questions at St Kilda of where they are headed for this season.
Port Adelaide                                  5.2         8.6         11.9         13.11 (89)
