Gawn talks up Eagles rucks

MAX Gawn strongly disputes the “no Nic Nat, no Eagles” theory. The Melbourne star points to fellow AFL All-Australian ruckman Brodie Grundy as Exhibit A in his argument. Gawn is one of the keys to Saturday’s preliminary final against West Coast, even more so because the Eagles are without Nic Naitanui. When West...

Dees advance to preliminary final

MELBOURNE has passed a massive test, blunting Hawthorn’s last quarter surge to win their AFL semi-final by 33 points. The 16.8 (104) to 10.11 (71) win on Friday night at the MCG puts the Demons into their first preliminary final since 2000. They will play West Coast next Saturday afternoon at Optus...

Facing...
