Nothing but Gray skies for the Pies

Highlights: Collingwood v Port Adelaide The Magpies and Power clash in round 14

1. Nothing but Gray skies for the Pies
The Magpies had no answers for Robbie Gray as he steamed towards half-time with four goals and seven score involvements. He was the difference as the Power built - and held onto - their 17-point lead despite the Pies winning the second term by four points. He also took an incredible second-quarter mark when the ball was popped over his head; he ran back with the flight and got his hands to it despite the close checking of Tyson Goldsack. His highlights reel continued into the third when he fired off a handpass to Matt White while being tackled by Lynden Dunn that resulted in a goal, before he celebrated his fifth 10 minutes later. The Pies got numbers back in the last quarter and he didn't add to his tally, but he ended the game as best on ground with 5.1, seven...

Star Lion out after big hit from Mumford

Mummy ends Beams' day Lions captain Dayne Beams has left the ground injured after a heavy knock from Giant Shane Mumford

AFL 2017 Round 14 - Brisbane v GWS Giants

Dayne Beams runs off the Gabba in pain after being collected by Shane Mumford

THE BRISBANE Lions are confident captain Dayne Beams will play again this season after he was taken off with a shoulder injury in the opening minute of Saturday's loss to Greater Western Sydney.

Beams was collected heavily but fairly in a hip-and-shoulder by Giant ruckman Shane Mumford, and left the ground supporting his arm with his guernsey. 

Full match coverage and stats 

The midfielder's injured left shoulder isn't the same one he had reconstructed during 2015. 

Speaking after the match, Lions coach Chris Fagan said Beams would get scans to determine more, but the club was optimistic. 

Five talking points: Brisbane Lions v Greater Western Sydney

Match report: Power teach Magpies a lesson

A ROBBIE Gray masterclass has steered Port Adelaide to a critical 31-point victory on its season debut at the MCG against an overwhelmed Collingwood on Saturday. 

The brilliant forward kicked four of his five goals in the first half to give the Power a 17-point edge before the visitors put the Magpies to the sword with five-straight third-quarter majors.

Full match coverage and stats

Four of them came in a six-minute burst as Port surged a match-high 42 points clear, kick-started by Gray's fifth when he bobbed up with the ball behind a pack of players and strolled into goal.

Collingwood launched a brief fightback, but never seriously threatened as Ken Hinkley's men recorded a 13.15 (93) to 9.8 (62) victory in front of 35,933 fans to entrench itself in the top four.

The Pies remain off the top-eight pace as they desperately seek a first finals appearance in four years.

Hinkley rapt with Chad's job on Pies skipper

Wingard, Gray 'fantastic weapons' for Ken Ken Hinkley admitted the versatility of star duo Chad Wingard and Robbie Gray is a great 'weapon to have'

AFL 2017 Round 14 - Collingwood v Port Adelaide

Chad Wingard blanketed Scott Pendlebury in the third term

CHAD Wingard has made his name with his breathtaking talent and incredible highlight reel, but it was his willingness to sacrifice his own game against Collingwood that pleased coach Ken Hinkley most.

Hinkley sent Wingard to Collingwood captain Scott Pendlebury after a first half in which the Magpies champion racked up a match-high 20 disposals and threatened to haul them back into the contest.

Pendlebury had just three possessions in the third term as the Power went on a five-goal rampage through the middle of quarter to blow Collingwood out of the water on its way to a 31-point win.

Another concussion for luckless McCartin

AFL 2017 Round 09 - St Kilda v Sydney

Paddy McCartin has suffered another concussion while playing in the VFL

PADDY McCartin's immediate playing future is again in doubt after the big St Kilda forward suffered another concussion in the VFL.

McCartin had his head over the footy in a contest during the first quarter of Sandringham's clash with Coburg when he was collected by an opponent.

He lay on the ground for 10-15 seconds and was attended by trainers before walking off. He failed to appear again in the second half.

"He was ruled out with concussion, which isn't good with his history. He'll obviously get assessed during the week but hopefully for Paddy it's nothing, because he was playing very good AFL footy a couple of weeks ago," Sandringham assistant coach Brendan Allen said after the game.

McCartin's 2016 season was blighted by three separate concussion incidents, but he had avoided any problems to date in...

Pies 'schooled', but Bucks not giving up on finals

Buckley: 'We got schooled today' Nathan Buckley admitted his side were heavily outclassed but remained optimistic they can still make finals

AFL 2017 Round 14 - Collingwood v Port Adelaide

Scott Pendlebury leaves the field after loss to the Power

COLLINGWOOD was "schooled" and "bullied" by Port Adelaide on Saturday, but Nathan Buckley is refusing to give up on playing finals for the first time since 2013.

The Pies were pushed aside by a tougher, more direct Power unit as they fell to a 31-point loss despite winning more contested ball and only narrowly falling short in tackles.

Buckley said they were beaten by "the best opposition we've had" this season as his team fell to an undesirable 5-8 win-loss record.

They will likely be two games out of the eight by the end of the round, and could fall as low as the bottom four depending on results.

Match report: Giants take top spot with ease

GREATER Western Sydney made light work of the Brisbane Lions at the Gabba on Saturday night, storming to the top of the table with a 60-point win.

In his 100th game Dylan Shiel starred, collecting 24 of his game-high 38 disposals in the decisive first half on the way to the Giants' 22.14 (146) to 12.14 (86) victory.

Full match coverage and stats 

It was a poor night for the Lions who lost skipper Dayne Beams in the opening minute with a left shoulder injury. 

Beams was on the wrong end of a huge – and totally legal – bump by hulking ruckman Shane Mumford that left him limp on the ground and unable to return.

Five talking points: Brisbane Lions v Greater Western Sydney

Lions coach Chris Fagan said post-match that he expected Beams to play again this season.

In Heath Shaw's 250th, the Giants showed no signs of post-bye rust and dealt comfortably with their lowly opponent.

Around the state leagues: Who's starring for your club?

State league affiliate: Adelaide (SANFL)
This weekend: Sturt v Adelaide - Saturday, June 24, 2.10pm, Peter Motley Oval  

Experienced onballer Scott Thompson racked up 33 disposals and kicked two goals in Adelaide's 36-point win against Central District at My Money House on Saturday afternoon.

Thompson, 34, is yet to play a game in the senior team this season. 

Mitch McGovern finished with nine disposals in his second match back from a hamstring injury. 

Riley Knight collected 18 disposals and slotted two goals after being dropped. 

Runners David Mackay (26 disposals) and Paul Seedsman (24) won plenty of the footy. 

Seedsman lined up in his second straight match after having missed most of the year with a groin injury. 

The Crows started well with six goals in the opening term to win, 16.5 (101) to 9.11 (65).

Highlights: Brisbane Lions v GWS The Lions and Giants clash in round 14

AFL 2017 Round 14 - Brisbane v GWS Giants

Dylan Shiel had a big 100th

1. Big, big sound from the west of the town
With Adelaide's upset loss to Hawthorn, GWS' giant win over the Brisbane Lions is more than a handy percentage boost. The Giants now go one game clear on top of the ladder, and have started to eat away at the big percentage gap between themselves and the Crows. The win was set up off a dominant nine-goal third term, with the Giants' talented forward line too strong for the young Lions defence. Jeremy Cameron's four goals also saw him leap Buddy Franklin into top spot in the race for the Coleman medal. He now sits three goals clear of the Swan.

Worsfold ponders 'random, reckless' footy

Worsfold: Disappointing and 'it hurts' John Worsfold laments the one that got away

AFL 2017 Round 14 - Sydney v Essendon

Joe Daniher agonises over what might have been

JOHN Worsfold was left pondering the merits of letting his speedy Bombers off the leash to play "random, reckless, fast footy" in the wake of Essendon's agonising one-point loss to the Swans at the SCG on Friday night.

Worsfold was surprisingly upbeat after conceding the last 20 points to lose after the siren to Sydney, highlighting his side's character and belief as strong points. However, it was the style of play the Bombers offered, despite a slippery surface, that gave Worsfold reason for contemplation.

Full match coverage and stats

"Overall, I thought playing fast was brilliant for us," he said.

"Obviously, that's what was going to give us a chance to beat Sydney. And that got us in front and gave us the lead. Did we keep trying to play fast? Maybe...

Swans rode their luck in win: Longmire

Longmire: 'We were in a lot of trouble' John Longmire concedes his side has pulled off a remarkable win

SYDNEY pulled off a miracle win over Essendon on Friday night and even coach John Longmire admits he thought they were just about gone.

The Swans trailed by 19 points deep into the final term after the Bombers had kicked seven goals in a row from late in the third quarter, but the home side somehow managed to fight back and steal the game thanks to a Gary Rohan major after the final siren.

Full match coverage and stats

After losing close ones to Collingwood and Hawthorn on their home ground this season, Sydney finally got one back with a stunning one-point victory that left Longmire still a touch shocked post-match.

"It's not too often you go through games like that," he said.

"To get 19 points down with less than five minutes to go and get those few minutes right was a credit...

Fans' verdict: Magpie army is backing Bucks

Collingwood's mid-season report card Peter Ryan takes a look at the Magpies season so far

TWO-THIRDS of Magpie fans want to see coach Nathan Buckley continue at the helm.

Buckley's future remains one of the biggest questions surrounding Collingwood as the Pies resume after their bye in 13th position on the ladder.

Given their mid-season verdict on the Magpies in an AFL.com.au survey, 68 per cent of fans said they were happy with Buckley's performance in steering their side to within a game of the top eight, with a healthy percentage of 101.7.

High-profile recruit Chris Mayne has struggled to maintain a senior position since arriving from Fremantle in the off-season, and has been voted the Pies' biggest underperformer so far in 2017.

Skipper Scott Pendlebury is Mr Consistency, and has been named as the Magpies' best player this season, narrowly ahead of Mark of the Year favourite...

Fans' verdict: Top four or bust for Giants

GWS mid-season report card Adam Curley reports from Sydney on the Giants season so far

TOP FOUR or bust.

That's the expectation for GWS from fans giving their mid-season verdict on the Giants in an AFL.com.au survey.

A full 97 per cent of respondents believed the team will have a double chance come finals.

Prized midfielder Josh Kelly, who is yet to re-sign with the club, was voted the Giants' best performer in the first half of the season with a whopping 70 per cent of total votes.

Brett Deledio has endured a luckless run with injury after moving up from Richmond. He is yet to play a match, and has been named as an underperformer by fans.

Here are the full survey results, plus a selection of Giants fans' hopes for the club's first flag.

McCartin 'unlucky' not to get the call: Richo

AFL 2017 Round 12 - Adelaide v St Kilda

Paddy McCartin will play in the AFL on Saturday

PADDY McCartin's was "unlucky" not to be selected in St Kilda's side to face Gold Coast at Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon, with coach Alan Richardson feeling unable to change a winning team. 

The Saints started the season 5-3 but fell into a rut, losing three consecutive games. They turned that around with a scrappy 17-point win against North Melbourne last week, a contest McCartin missed with bone bruising in his knee. 

"The team, if they were fit and available, was going to be unchanged," Richardson said at Moorabbin on Saturday.

"It didn't matter if it was Tom Hickey, Jack Steele, or if it was Paddy, this was a week that we were saying to the boys who got the job done for the footy club and for our cause, 'well done, you've turned it around.'" 

McCartin, 21, will line up for Sandringham against Coburg at Trevor Barker Beach Oval...

Tiger clash a stretch but Deledio aiming for finals

AFL 2017 Round 05 - Sydney v GWS Giants

Brett Deledio says he could be back playing in the NEAFL by round 18

INJURED Greater Western Sydney recruit Brett Deledio concedes he is unlikely to be fit for the clash with his former side Richmond at the MCG in round 18. 

However, he hopes to be playing NEAFL by that time.

Deledio has yet to feature for the Giants. He played 11 matches in his final season with the Tigers in 2016 and was traded for first and third-round selections that will materialise at this year's NAB AFL Draft. 

The 30-year-old has been ravaged by problems with his right calf, although his latest setback earlier this month was to his 'good' left calf. 

"Ideally, I'd love to be back by round 18 to play the Tiges at the MCG, but I don't think that will be the case," Deledio told ABC Radio on Friday. 

"Hopefully (I'll be) back ready for selection by that week and then can play ones or twos."

Pick a Winner: Coll v Port Duck and Browny preview the Magpies v Power

AFL 2017 Round 12 - Melbourne v Collingwood

Jordan De Goey has been building form in the last month

SUMMARY
This clash between fourth (Port Adelaide) and 13th (Collingwood) promises to be much closer than their ladder positions suggest. The Power have conceded the fewest points in the competition and are second for scoring, but they are only two games (and considerable percentage) clear of the Pies. Despite injuries to key players, the Magpies have improved significantly over the past five weeks – a period in which their only losses were by three points (against Greater Western Sydney) and four points (Melbourne). Another loss here would virtually extinguish Collingwood's slim finals hopes. Meanwhile, in-form Port Adelaide runners Ollie Wines and Brad Ebert will be hoping for another dominant performance from 200-game ruckman Paddy Ryder in his big duel...

Early rushed behind 'rightly adjudicated', says AFL

Match highlights: Sydney v Essendon The Swans and Bombers clash in round 14

AFL 2017 Round 14 - Sydney v Essendon

A first-quarter rushed behind from a Lance Franklin kick has been cleared by the AFL

THE AFL has defended the decision to award Sydney a behind at the end of the first quarter in the Swans' remarkable one-point victory against Essendon on Friday night at the SCG.

Sydney forward Lance Franklin kicked before the quarter-time siren and Bombers veteran James Kelly grabbed the ball in mid-air and landed behind the goal-line. 

Full match coverage and stats

The AFL released a statement on Saturday morning justifying the call. 

"It was the umpire's view that Kelly took control of the ball in mid-air but landed with both feet behind the goal line and a rushed behind was then correctly awarded to the Swans," the statement read.

"Under Law 12.5.1 (b), a goal or behind can be scored if the ball is kicked before the...

AFL 2017 Round 05 - Western Bulldogs v Brisbane

Tom Campbell is one of two inclusions for the Dogs this week

THE WESTERN Bulldogs have won just one of their past five matches, but coach Luke Beveridge remains confident the reigning premiers can halt their recent run of outs against North Melbourne at Etihad Stadium on Saturday night.

The Dogs have battled injury and poor form over the past month, with Melbourne thrashing them by 57 points last Sunday in a match where the Dogs managed just a solitary behind in the first quarter.

Beveridge's side has made just two changes – both forced – for the clash with the Kangaroos, and the coach said on Friday that he believes in the solidarity of his team and the players' ability to turn things around.

"You'd think the magnitude of the loss would lend itself to maybe an omission or two based on recent...
