AFL Round 20 Positives for every team
This round had five of nine games that had a margin of less than a goal! Lance Franklin was back in form with six goals. It was great to see Alex Johnson come back from injury and Nathan Freeman make his debut. There is nothing wrong with the game!
Friday Night Game
Tigers v Cats
Tigers: The Tigers showed why they are considered to be the team to beat with a tight victory. Kane Lambert was a game changer, while as usual, the rest of the Tigers played their role.
Cats: The Cats had five players with twenty-nine disposals or more. The Cats did extremely well to claw their way back into the contest and nearly pinch victory.
Hawks v Bombers
Hawks: Tom Mitchell continues to display why he is the Brownlow favourite. Jack Gunston was outstanding with five goals. The Hawks ended with the four points in a tight contest.
Bombers: Zach Merrett showed why he is possibly the Bombers best player. Despite not getting the win, the Bombers would be pleased with their performance.
Lions v Kangaroos
Lions: The Lions have been extremely competitive of late. They proved that last weekends seven goal loss was perhaps an aberration.
Kangaroos: The Kangaroos won the game without anyone getting over thirty possessions and Ben Brown only managing to kick one goal. It was a team effort by the Kangaroos.
Crows v Power
Crows: The Crows won a lot of the stats, in spite of the fact that they only won the game narrowly.
Power: Despite losing the majority of the stats, the Power nearly walked away with the four points.
Saturday Night Games
Saints v Bulldogs
Saints: The Saints kicked the first five goals of the game. The form of Sebastian Ross would have given the Saints fans something to be excited about.
Bulldogs: In spite of giving up a sizeable deficit early the Bulldogs cruised to a thirty-five point victory. They had five players with twenty-nine possessions or more.
Swans v Magpies
Swans: Although they didn’t play their best footy, the Swans managed to win the game. Aliir Aliir continues to be a revelation. Lance Franklin was back in form with six goals.
Magpies: The Magpies almost won the game and put in a good performance, even though they had a lot of injuries, especially when it came to tall defenders.
Blues v Giants
Blues: Harry Mckay played a quality game with three goals, while Patrick Cripps and Marc Murphy continued their solid form.
Giants: The Giants were outstanding. They cruised to an easy victory with plenty of their players putting in a good display.
Demons v Suns
Demons: Every player had over ten possessions, it was a complete performance.
Suns: Alex Sexton was a standout with five goals.
Eagles v Dockers
Eagles: Every player played their role for the team.
Dockers: The Dockers had four players with more than twenty disposals.
