The long summer off-season was finally over, as the first of the pre-season matches got under way. A revised
format for the NAB Cup saw the triple-header openings from last season retained, with all matches afterwards
attracting premiership points before the top two go through to the final. To kick off the new format, Richmond,
North Melbourne and Hawthorn faced off at Docklands on Friday night.
Richmond v North Melbourne was first up. The Tigers started quickly, with two goals within the first five minutes,
but were unable to assert themselves any further. But Tiger midfielder Reece Conca may find himself in hot water
after a collision with North’s Leigh Adams saw Adams depart with concussion. The Tigers led by two points at
half time, and soon regained their two-goal lead. But a late fightback by the Kangaroos finished with late goals to
Aaron Edwards and Robbie Tarrant and a three-point win for the Kangaroos.
Hawthorn took on North in the second game, and it was one-way traffic from the start. Three goals in the first four
minutes gave the Hawks an early 19-point advantage; and there was no looking back for the Hawks. A super-goal
to Brad Sewell further tightened the screws. At one stage the Hawks were 38 points ahead, and although the
Kangaroos salvaged something to cut the margin to 25 points at half time and to stay level with the Hawks
through the second half, the damage was done.
The three sides split the points after Richmond turned the tables on the Hawks with a three-point win in the final
game. The Tigers led by four points after a scrappy first half, but the game looked like it was going Hawthorn’s
way when Lance Franklin booted the first three goals of the second half. But the Tigers fought back late, their fans
sent into raptures when Matthew White goaled with a minute left on the clock to restore the Richmond lead. The
clock ran down, and the Tigers had completed a well-earned win to keep all honours even for the night.

The AFL’s move to an 18-team competition is complete this year with the entry of GWS Giants. And the
newest team would have home ground advantage for a triple-header, as they would be joined at
Blacktown International Sportspark by the Western Bulldogs and Collingwood.
The Bulldogs started brightly with two early goals against the Giants, but a free kick to Curtly Hampton saw
the competition newcomers record their first goal. The Bulldogs led by 13 points at half time, and after a
goal to Daniel Cross early in the second half, a controversial free kick to Matthew Panos for time wasting
gifted the Bulldogs what looked to be a match-winning lead. But, spurred on by a super-goal by former
Bulldog Callan Ward, the young Giants fought back magnificently, getting back to only five points down and
with momentum running their way when time ran out.
A low-scoring scrap saw Collingwood taste victory in their first appearance for the night, as they defeated
the Bulldogs by seven points. It wasn’t pretty, and both sides suffered injury concerns, with Brenton
Macaffer and Ryan Griffen departing with injuries in the first half. It was one goal apiece at half time, the
Magpies two points ahead; but as much as they tried to assert themselves during the second half, the
determined Bulldogs denied them. But, even with Matthew Boyd picking up 20 possessions during a short
game, it wasn’t enough to upset the Magpies.
Collingwood were the hottest of favourites when they took on GWS in the final game; but in the end the
plucky young Giants gave the Magpies a fright and could have stolen the game. The Giants had only one
player, Phil Davis, who had played any AFL senior games, but the inexperienced side held an unlikely lead
at half time, and held their own against the highly-fancied Magpies. Late in the game, the Giants took the
lead, but a freak snap from the pocket by Jackson Paine got the Magpies over the line.
And so Collingwood were the first side to go undefeated through the round-robin stage. The Giants were
without a win, but having gone down by only a kick in both games, they showed they are capable of being
competitive during their debut season.

Sunday evening was hot and sticky, energy-sapping conditions at Subiaco. Essendon had drawn the short
straw to travel west, taking on local teams West Coast and Fremantle. And it was to be a poor afternoon
for the Bombers as they were well beaten by both WA teams; with West Coast then prevailing in the local
derby in the final game.
West Coast had suffered a blow during the week leading up to the game when Mark LeCras injured his
knee at training, and his season is probably over before it started. But the Eagles didn’t seem to miss his
presence when the match started, as they wasted no time in blowing the Bombers off the park. Five goals
in the first 15 minutes set up a match-winning break. Prominent on the forward line, with some strong
marks and two goals, was Gerrick Weedon. The young Eagle forward only managed one game for the
Eagles last year, but showed that he has improved considerably during the pre-season. At half time the
Eagles held a 23-point lead, and although the Bombers scored four late goals to win the second half,
there was nothing at any point to suggest they would get back into the contest.
Ross Lyon took the coaching reigns at Fremantle for the first time, and the Dockers also showed their
superiority over the Bombers from the start. Some wasteful finishing by the Dockers would let them down,
but thanks to a super-goal by Nick Suban, the Dockers held a 13-point lead at half time. And a free-flowing
game would see the Dockers continue to dominate in the second half, but their goalkicking radar returned
to give them reward for effort as they kicked five goals to one in the second half to run out 36-point winners.
By now the sun was setting, and the lights had taken over for the final game of the evening, the local derby.
A far more intense game than either of the earlier matches, it took until the final seconds of the first half for
either side to manage a goal. But a double by ruckman Dean Cox in the second half, both threaded
through from tight angles, established a winning break. The Docker forwards would be frustrated, and
would not break through for a goal until the final minute when Joel Mellington finally broke their duck. But it
was West Coast’s night, a 20-point win in the final game and moving to the top of the ladder after an
undefeated evening.
