Surgery sidelines Silvagni

GWS overcame a historically slow start to wind in a 29-point margin and remain in the AFL’s top eight with a win over Essendon in the wet on Friday. The Giants and Bombers managed just four points between them in the first quarter at Metricon Stadium – the lowest-scoring opening term...

AFL to investigate Pie’s injury

THE AFL will investigate whether the leg injury suffered by Collingwood’s Isaac Quaynor was the result of an opponent wearing boots with illegal metal studs.

Miers stars as Cats see off Roos

A CAREER-best performance from Gryan Miers has helped a wasteful Geelong cruise to a 33-point AFL win over North Melbourne at the Gabba. The Cats’ first-half yips, coming a day after Brisbane’s sloppy goal-kicking ruined any hope they had of defeating Richmond, could have proven costly. But Miers’ composure allowed Geelong to...

Homesick McKenna back in frame

ESSENDON coach John Worsfold has revealed Conor McKenna missed last week’s loss to Brisbane due to homesickness, but he expects the defender to return to action against GWS on Friday night.
