Three years of nips and tucks have eaten away at the Greater Western Sydney Giants’ playing list, to the point where there are concerns about depth. What people are really saying - even if they don’t know it - is GWS are now just like the rest of the competition. GWS had a near-three-year window […]

News surfaced a few weeks ago that Port Adelaide is in the top-four teams in the competition for salary cap room, despite their 2017 recruitment spree that saw them net Steven Motlop, Jack Watts, Tom Rockliff, Lindsay Thomas, Trent McKenzie and Jack Trengove. However, losing Jackson Trengove (Western Bulldogs), Jarman Impey (Hawthorn), Matthew Lobbe (Carlton) […]
Only three rounds remain in what has been an open AFL Women’s season, and the jockeying for grand final berths is set to continue. At the same time, teams will start falling out of contention for the premiership. The Adelaide Crows’ premiership defence hangs by a thread after they were held to a draw against […]
Gary Ablett remains upbeat about his pre-season progress, despite owning the most talked-about hamstring in the AFL. The Geelong veteran has a hamstring strain after suffering tightness during match simulation last Thursday. Given this is Ablett and he is 33, the setback has attracted considerable attention. But the two-time Brownlow Medallist is confident he will […]

My favourite scene in the history of cinema is the climax of Raiders of the Lost Ark, when the Nazis open the Ark of the Covenant. What they find inside is so powerful, so next-level, beyond ordinary humanity that their faces melt clean off - the punishment of God for daring to look at something […]

West Coast made the grand final in 2015 off the back of an exceptional season implementing the ‘Weagles Web’, and the prospect was of greater things in the future. Finals appearances followed in 2016 and 2017, but they were never a premiership threat in those years. The wheel turns quickly in AFL circles, and all […]
Jordan De Goey’s recent suspension is a reminder that, despite Nathan Buckley’s singular devotion to Collingwood, this is a union that may well end ultimately unfulfilled. While Buckley has undoubtedly been culpable at times, circumstances have also played their part in the Buckley and Collingwood relationship not bearing adequate fruit. Perhaps more significant though is […]
Geelong’s return of their prodigal AFL son has hit a setback, with confirmation that Gary Ablett suffered a hamstring strain at training. Officially, the Cats say the injury is minor and he was never going to play in their first pre-season match, against his old club Gold Coast this Sunday in Townsville. But given Ablett […]
West Coast ruckman Scott Lycett has urged Eagles fans to be patient with Nic Naitanui, saying it will take the former All-Australian some time to regain his top form. Naitanui missed all of last year after undergoing a knee reconstruction, and he is yet to play a game this pre-season. The 2012 All-Australian is a […]
