AFL  – Round 11

Swans sink Suns at Metricon Lake Oval where silky skills are negated by a heavy ball and soaked surface and yet the Swans still splash their way to a slippery win, North freeze Richmond out of Tasmania in arctic conditions while Tigers return to lick their wounds, Hawthorn tease and tantalise the competition making us feel the rest of the pack are getting closer and then they shift a gear and pull away from the Demons, Carlton continue to believe and Brisbane continue to pretend, Geelong won an arm wrestle against GWS and Stevie J lost no friends at the Cattery. Fremantle finally woke up with a W next to their name and Bombers, well they scored points for turning up.

 

Collingwood fielded a team, did the warm up and then took the rest of the day off against Port. Doggies slugged it out against the Weagles at Dog Park with the Bont becoming Doggies youngest winning captain, that’s good for his scrapbook.

 

Final game, well I went to sleep, much like St Kilda did against Adelaide who sliced through them faster than Hattori Hanzo’s sword went through O-Ren Ishii.
