Dusty does it

RICHMOND superstar Dustin Martin has won the 2017 Brownlow Medal after guiding the Tigers to their first AFL grand final in 35 years. The midfielder polled a record 36 votes, narrowly outpolling ineligible Geelong star Patrick Dangerfield (33) and Hawthorn’s Tom Mitchell (25). Last year’s winner Dangerfield was ruled out of contention...

Cotchin in the clear

RICHMOND skipper Trent Cotchin will play in Saturday’s AFL grand final against Adelaide after being cleared of any wrongdoing in an incident involving GWS star Dylan Shiel. Cotchin bumped Shiel in last weekend’s preliminary final against GWS at the MCG, with the Giants midfielder later failing a concussion test. The match review panel...

AFL Changes – Preliminary Finals

ADEALAIDE have named veteran tall Andy Otten to replace hamstrung forward Mitch McGovern for Friday night’s AFL preliminary final clash with Geelong. The Crows also regained Rory Sloane for the Adelaide Oval clash after he missed the qualifying-final win over Greater Western Sydney following emergency appendix surgery. Otten, 28, last played at AFL...

Crows AFL’s best: Danger

GEELONG star and former Crow Patrick Dangerfield says Adelaide are the best team in the AFL. He says they have been all season. And they run a lot deeper than star midfielder Rory Sloane, who had starred in their last meeting – a 21-point round-18 win by the Crows. What’s more, the 50,000-strong crowd...

PORT Adelaide coach Ken Hinkley has signed a three-year contract extension with the AFL club. Hinkley will coach Port until at least the end of the 2021 season, after rejecting overtures to join the Gold Coast Suns. He had been contracted at Port until the end of next season but the interest of...

Kelly remains a Giant

GREATER Western Sydney have re-signed Josh Kelly, with the race to recruit the AFL’s most in-demand youngster put on hold for a further two seasons. Rival clubs were lining up to lure Kelly home to Victoria, with North Melbourne dangling a nine-year contract thought to be worth approximately $10 million. But the gifted...

Cats did it for Domsy

AS they walked to their positions on Friday night, Geelong’s defensive group made a little pact not to let Tom Lonergan’s AFL career end with him sitting in the grandstand. Lonergan was a late withdrawal for the Cats’ semi-final win over Sydney after suffering a bout of food poisoning in the...

Bombers axe Buddha

ESSENDON have delisted veteran AFL midfielder Heath Hocking after a tough return from the club’s well-documented doping ban. The Bombers on Friday confirmed that 29-year-old Hocking would not be offered a contract for next season. Hocking was the first of 10 Bombers to confirm their return to the club after serving 12-month...
