Hi everyone,
I hope you have had a good ANZAC Day today.
On the field: there were a lot of lopsided games this week. The biggest blowout saw Geelong crush the Sydney Swans by 93 points in a Grand Final replay that definitely didn't live up to expectations. It was the worst defeat for John Longmire since he took over the coaching reins at Sydney. The Western Bulldogs surprised the Freo Dockers out west in the round's opening game last Thursday - easily winning by 49 points. Gold Coast had no trouble beating North Melbourne (43 pts) and Port Adelaide comfortably accounted for the Eagles by almost seven goals. Brisbane won by 21 points over GWS in Canberra.
The Hawks were involved in another thriller, but for the second straight week coughed up a late lead to go down by less than a goal, this time to the Crows. In the ANZAC Eve match between Richmond and Melbourne, the Tigers got the jump early. They led by 25 points deep into the second quarter because they were winning the ball out of the center and giving their forwards plenty of opportunities. The Dees started to peg them back late in the second term and reduced the deficit to just 14 points at the main break. Melbourne finally hit the front early in the final quarter and went on to record a 3-goal win.
St Kilda bounced back from their loss to Collingwood a week ago to defeat Carlton by 22 points at Etihad. The Saints' stingy defense made for another low-scoring game. There were about 10 lead changes through the first 2.5 quarters. The turning point came midway through the third when Jack Silvagni missed a set-shot sitter from 15 meters out. A few minutes later Harry Mackay missed 2 'gettable' set-shots and the Sainters pounced - kicking the last 4 goals of the term to establish a 21-point lead at three-quarter time. They were never going to lose from there and effectively bottled things up in the final quarter, something they do very well.
Anticipation was keen ahead of the annual ANZAC Day blockbuster between Essendon-Collingwood - it was the first time since 2000 that both teams were in the top 4. A record crowd of over 95,000 turned out at the MCG to watch the game in unseasonably warm, sunny conditions. It was an exciting game. The Bombers had the better of the first and third quarters, but the Magpies won the second and most importantly the fourth quarter convincingly. After the Bombers stretched their lead to 28 points at three-quarter time, they looked to have the game sewn up, especially given the way their defense has been performing this season. However, Collingwood's 'never-say-die' attitude again shone through when it really mattered. They held Essendon to a mere 2 points in the final term, booting six goals themselves to emerge with a 13-point win - a shattering loss for the Bombers.
Tipping: scores were generally high this week and we had CD Saint, LamboM73, Grumpy Swimmer, John Naughton, Sean Hogan and Weazr1 all tip a perfect round. Very well done to all of you! We also have an unusual situation whereby 3 of you each win a $20.00 dining credit to the club as Sean Hogan, CD Saint and Grumpy all had an identical margin of 33 for the Thursday night game which was better than the margins for Lambo, John and Weazr.
We can't wipe the smile off Grumpy's face at the moment as he has stretched his lead to 4 points at the top of our overall leaderboard! He is averaging slightly better than 7 tips per round for the first six rounds, which is really impressive!
