It was a hard-fought match for the Gold Coast Suns against the Western Bulldogs on Saturday morning with Halls Creek’s Jy Farrar receiving a head injury during the match before the Suns succumbed to the Bulldogs, 15.16 (106) to 13.9 (87).

But before being subbed out with the injury in the second term, Farrar kicked the second goal in his 17-game career in the first quarter and continued on his interception streak, winning two intercepts that both launched goals for the Suns.

The Adelaide Crows’ accuracy let them down on the weekend, with the St Kilda Saints destroying the Crows’ nine-point lead coming into the last quarter by booting eight goals, 14.6 (90) to 9.15 (69).

Despite the loss Halls Creek’s Shane McAdam continued to show off his skills for the Crows, kicking a goal in the opening minutes of the second term and another in the third, finishing the game with a total of 10 disposals.

It was an extremely close match between the Brisbane Lions and the Hawthorn Hawks on Sunday with neither team being up more than three points at each of the breaks but the Hawks managed to secure the win by five points, 18.9 (117) to 17.10 (112).

Unfortunately, Derby’s Callum Ah Chee didn’t manage to score for the Lions this time around but made 12 disposals and caught four marks throughout the match.

After a rocky start to the season the Collingwood Magpies have produced their best win this year handing the Fremantle Dockers another defeat, 12.8 (80) to 6.8 (44).

Broome’s Bailey Banfield got a run this weekend, making eight disposals and landing two successful tackles during the clash.

Unfortunately, there was no sign of Broome boy Jack Martin for Carlton or Halls Creek’s Sam Petrevski-Seton for the West Coast Eagles.
