it was a tough one to call, to be fair. I wasn't expecting the Cats to restrain them in that way for the whole game.

I was really impressed by the composure they showed to get the ball out, very cleanly via handballs.

...and this week it was utter rubbish  >:( Apologies to the tippers  :-[

"Good" job I couldn't sleep otherwise I would have been miffed to wake up at 6.20 on Easter Monday for this rubbish.

Back to a St John's passion...  0:)

I had several games in the tipping where I paused and thought... and got all of them wrong.

Happily, most other people in the tipping competition got most of the same ones wrong, but someone managed 9 out of 9!

Not watched any games this weekend, only got a glimpse of Geelong's highlights at North Melbourne. Anything to report ?

Is it me or does the top 5 seem to be really running early with it compared to last year, with St Kilda the surprise package this year?

Richmond, Western Bulldogs (and Port Adelaide) have really lost their regularity of last year. is it all down to Dustin Martin and Josh Bruce that have been missed?

I wasn’t paying a huge amount of attention for various reasons.

A comfy win against GWS, hanging on just about on the right side of the ladder.

Stengle turns out to be a very valuable signing. Quite a few new faces coming through as well.

St Kilda next week, should be interesting.

Thank you Holden for beating the Swans earlier  ;D

The GWS game was in Canberra of course.

There was a point in time where GWS would win all their Canberra games. Now the opposite is happening.

LOL at that last one.

I had no opportunity to watch at all today. But I had decided to tip St Kilda and the new leader of the office competition had decided to tip Geelong, so big game for me.
