Almanac Anzac Weekend 2016 Sport Results

AFL  Anzac Weekend

Round 5 and there was a lot of remembering and a great deal of wanting to forget, Collingwood remembered how to kick goals, Essendon would like to forget their Anzac day performance and start again, which it appears they are doing.  Tigers would like to forget their defeat at the hands of the Dees, while Melbourne supporters can’t remember when they last won two in a row. Fremantle forgot it was once a formidable side (last year, remember?) while the Blues remembered the words of their team song for the first time this year.

Saints fans want to forget the fade out against the Giants, Swans remembered Lewis Jetta, especially when he missed goals, Doggies haven’t forgotten how to win and North remains undefeated. Port played a totally forgettable 3 quarters while Danger reacquainted himself with the good folk of Adelaide and Hawthorn, well they remembered 300 games from the talented Shaun Burgoyne and reminded everybody that they remain the team to beat.
