Weekend footy


  • Great to see the Demons win. Paul Roos is doing a great job with the team, and would be great to see them competing for the finals in the near future. They put a lot of pressure on the Tigers with the tackling, and are looking better defensively. The Dees now have three wins for the season.
  • Lowlight of the weekend, was hearing some of the crowd boo the umpire as he was taken from the field injured, during the Bombers-Swans game. Inexcusable.
  • Swans were impressive. I'm hoping the bye doesn't stifle their momentum. They are currently on a five game winning streak.
  • Fremantle were pretty impressive against Geelong.
  • Sunday was a test for the Gold Coast to show they are actually genuine finals contenders, and with Ablett in the touch he is in, they passed it with flying colours. I think that is their fourth win in a row.
  • Am looking forward for the next full round...  

  • Great performances by Melbourne on Friday, closer to what we have been used to..
  • St George may need more than Marshall to change their fortunes.
  • Not surprised that the Roosters lost to Cowboys, but am surprised by the margin.
  • Yes, they didn't win, but there was a lot to like about the Warriors effort against the Bulldogs. Can someone tell me why the Bulldogs are playing a home game in Hamilton NZ.
FA Cup

  • Was delighted to see Arsenal win the FA Cup. I turned on the tv after eight minutes, and saw Gibbs clear a header off the line and the Gunners behind 0-2. Just on 100 minutes later Ramsay scored the winner. Suspect Wenger will stay, but also would like to see a few signings in the off season, and a little more consistency in their performances next year.

Super XV

  • Hurricanes continue their win-loss sequence with a loss against the Highlanders. Outside the top 6 now. The NZ Conference is the most evenly poised, with every team still a chance to make the finals.

  • The Matilda's have played 3 games in their Asian Cup defense with a 2-2 draw against Japan; a 3-1 win against Jordan and a 2-0 win against Vietnam. Which means they qualify for the World Cup next year.
  • The West Sydney Wanderers bounced back from losing the Grand Final, and reached the Quarter-final stage of the Asian Champions League. The next tie will be played in August.
