AFL ROUND FOUR DEMONSTRATES PARITY OF COMPETITION

No further proof of the equality of the Toyota 2019 AFL Premiership competition is needed beyond the fact that at the conclusion of four rounds, there are no longer any unbeaten clubs. GWS did just enough to beat the Geelong Cats on the Cats’ ground, with a 79 – 75 win. As we have seen…

RANCE ACL SURGURY NOT THE WAY THE TIGERS SAW THE SEASON

Flag fancies Richmond Tigers’ loss of Alex Rance in the season opener with Carlton has definitely thrown a damper on prospects for a premiership many thought was rightfully theirs last season.
