Has Fremantle captain Alex Pearce been one of the two best key defenders in the competition so far this season? AFL journalist Josh Gabelich certainly thinks so. While Sam Taylor no doubt has led the charge, Gabelich thinks that Pearce would be next in line to partner him if an All-Australian team was picked through five games. Pearce has been key in Freo’s strong 3-2 start and while the Dockers went down to the Power 66-63 on Saturday night, the skipper was one of his side’s best in defeat with 20 disposals. His direct opponent Charlie Dixon also admitted post-game that he was “dominated” by ..read more

“I still think about it”: Ex-Saints coach Watson on overlooking 17-year-old Pavlich in ’98 draft

Former St Kilda coach Tim Watson still thinks about the time the club could have drafted Fremantle legend Matthew Pavlich. Watson coached the Saints in 1999 and 2000 after taking over the job in October of ’98 following the sacking of Stan Alves. It was in those initial weeks in the job where Watson was part of a conversation around picking the then 17-year-old in the 1998 AFL Draft, which took place on November 1 of that year. Clubs were still able to take one 17-year-old per draft back then and Watson says that the Saints were weighing up whether to pull the trigger early on Pavlich who had ..read more

Port Adelaide star Zak Butters is set to come under MRO scrutiny for a high bump on Bailey Banfield in Saturday’s 66-63 win over Fremantle at the Adelaide Oval. The bump occurred in the dying minutes of the clash with both players trying to win a loose ground ball. Banfield was standing over the footy as Butters flew in and turned his body to gather the footy. As Butters turned to pick up the ball, his hip collected Banfield in the face causing the Docker to hit the deck. Is Zak Butters in trouble for this bump late in the match against Bailey Banfield? ?

The “embarrassing” stat behind Hawthorn’s shocking midfield effort in Gold Coast defeat

Hawthorn’s midfield group has come in for criticism after going down to Gold Coast 109-56 at People First Stadium on Saturday night. The Suns dominated in every aspect of the game with all of Noah Anderson, Sam Flanders, Touk Miller, Matt Rowell and Brayden Fiorini having more disposals than any Hawthorn on-baller. The Suns won the overall disposal count 366-270 and dominated clearances 38-28. But perhaps the most damning stat was that none of James Worpel (14 touches), Conor Nash (10 touches), Jai Newcombe (10 touches), Josh Ward (seven touches) or Cam Mackenzie (three touches) could muster m ..read more

Adelaide has won their first game of the season in the biggest upset of 2024, narrowly edging out the formally unbeaten Carlton 16.4 (100) to 14.14 (98) at Marvel Stadium. It was a strong start for Adelaide, defending the ground well and transitioning forward with ease. Led by Ben Keays and Taylor Walker, the Crows began the quarter with four goals from their first seven inside 50s despite the Blues’ dominating the uncontested ball, but it was still the Blues leading the game across the first two breaks. Neither side wanted to miss with a combined fifteen goals and just four behinds at half ti ..read more

Essendon returned to the winners list with a superb 29-point victory over the Western Bulldogs on Friday night. Off the back of a poor showing against Port Adelaide last week, Brad Scott and the Bombers responded in a big way, getting on top in the middle of the ground and dominating the contest to secure an important four points. While the whole team took a major leap from last week’s loss, former AFL star Luke Hodge placed the emphasis on captain Zach Merrett and key defender Ben McKay, standing out for the Bombers in their strong win and throughout 2024 thus far. “I’ve been impressed with M ..read more
