Dees drop unlucky Fritsch

RICHMOND and Collingwood have named unchanged teams for Friday night’s AFL preliminary final while Melbourne has dropped unlucky youngster Bayley Fritsch. The Tigers and Magpies are backing their incumbents to get the job done at the MCG. Reigning Brownlow medallist Dustin Martin’s corked thigh has been a talking point throughout this week...

Tigers wary of Pies’ noise

HAVING done it all in the past 12 months, Richmond is readying themselves to climb their last AFL mountain in their preliminary final against Collingwood. An army of opposition support. Damien Hardwick’s side roared to last year’s flag off the back of ferocious fandom from the Tiger Army. Richmond defeated Geelong, GWS Giants...

New role for Steele

JUST a kid from the bush when he played his first preliminary final, Steele Sidebottom is now a mentor for Collingwood’s young stars ahead of the biggest game of their AFL careers. First-year players Jaidyn Stephenson, Brody Mihocek and Brayden Sier face a stern test of their mettle on Friday night...

Shiel undecided on future

DYLAN Shiel’s AFL future is a 50-50 call as the GWS star weighs up whether to stay or seek a trade to a Victorian club. Player manager Paul Connors said West Coast midfield ace Andrew Gaff is also yet to decide where he will be next season. Mitch McGovern also wants to...

Goodwin calls on Dees to step up

THE need to go to another level in an AFL preliminary final has added urgency for Melbourne coach Simon Goodwin. While the Demons will go into Saturday’s clash with West Coast full of confidence, Goodwin saw worrying signs in last Friday night’s semi-final win over Hawthorn. With nothing to lose, the Hawks...

Martin hobbled but will play

RICHMOND has conceded Dustin Martin has been limited by a corked thigh recently but the Tigers are adamant the AFL superstar will play in the preliminary final against Collingwood. Martin sparked speculation he was under an injury cloud with his early departure from a training session at Punt Road, just a...

Gawn talks up Eagles rucks

MAX Gawn strongly disputes the “no Nic Nat, no Eagles” theory. The Melbourne star points to fellow AFL All-Australian ruckman Brodie Grundy as Exhibit A in his argument. Gawn is one of the keys to Saturday’s preliminary final against West Coast, even more so because the Eagles are without Nic Naitanui. When West...

Pair fined for melee

GWS ruckman Rory Lobb and Collingwood midfielder Taylor Adams have copped AFL fines for the fiery melee that erupted on the stroke of halftime in their semi- final at the MCG. Lobb can accept a $1500 sanction for a second offence of engaging in a melee and Adams $2500 for a...

McCartin commits to Swans

YOUNG forward Tom McCartin will remain in Sydney until at least the end of 2021 after signing a two-year contract extension. The 18-year-old, who was drafted from the Geelong Falcons with pick No.33 last year, played 15 games after making his AFL debut against Hawthorn in Round 8. “I’m very pumped and...

Martin trains alone

RICHMOND superstar Dustin Martin has trained away from the main group amid growing intrigue about his fitness for Friday night’s AFL preliminary final against Collingwood. Martin, who suffered a cork during the Tigers’ qualifying final win over Hawthorn, took part in stationary kicking drills before Monday morning’s session was closed to...
