West Coast disposed of Carlton on the back of some Natinui brilliance and a Selwood clamp. Adelaide seemed in control but were almost pipped at the post by the fast finishing Saints. GWS pushed the Tigers and Gary Ablett showed us all again just how good he is. Zorko emerges and Wil Minson regresses. We’ll take a look at the highs and lows of round 12.
The first of the bye rounds saw more of the great footy we’ve been treated to this year. Fremantle got an away win against the Tigers on the back of their inspirational skipper.

Poor kicking for goal again impacted the results with both Essendon and the Blues failing to convert and the Hawk machine is gaining momentum. We’ll take a look at the highs and lows of round 11.
The Pies steal a win in Adelaide but the price they paid could be telling. Fremantle’s new “game plan” is sending their supporters crazy.

Sliding at the contest is still a hot topic around the grounds with Greg Broughton nearly ending David Swallow’s season. The Bombers continue to impress and Karmichael Hunt is making plenty of critics eat their words. Collingwood are still in the winners circle but there must be some concern at the Westpac centre about the form of the pre season fancies. With the Eagles the only undefeated team after six rounds the ladder is starting to take some shape. Also…We wouldn’t mind a cover every now then! Let’s take a look at the highlights and lowlights of the round that was.
