Almanac Weekend Sports Results 22/5/16

AFL  – Round 9

Friday night round 9, Swans turned up at the MCG and Hawthorn arrived fashionably later. The Hawks apparently wanted to give the Swans a head start by turning up mid way through the second quarter, Swans by 14. Geelong obviously felt anything Hawthorn can do they can do better and achieved the same result, Collingwood home by 24. Adelaide flogged the Suns on the Gold Coast, Port wrestled out of the game by West Coast and North reminded the building Blues that the foundation is just a base without the timber. Richmond blew Freo away in choppy conditions, Melbourne proved far too strong on home soil against a listless Lions, the Giants pressed their credentials with a win against the Bulldogs and in the final game, St Kilda clicked into gear to outrun the Bombers.

    Thanks for including the Giro D’talia. It is a great lead into “The Tour” providing insights into key players in the field. Chaves (Orica Greenedge) e.g. is one to watch.

    Tremendous scenes following the Hibs win. Some would call it out of control and dangerous, some would call it exuberant but it was 114 years for god’s sake! The Proclaimers sing along was especially great.
