AFL Fixtures released

The AFL fixtures have been released with a mixed result for our two local teams. The much anticipated ‘grudge’ match when former West Coast Captain Chris Judd meets his old team will occur in round seven when Calton travel to Subiaco. It is widely anticipated that the home crowd ‘boo’ their former champion in typical West Coast fan style.
Fremantle finally get a chance to hold a proper ANZAC day clash with the ‘Len Hall’ game set for a national audience on Friday night, at Subiaco against travelling side Geelong.
Fremantle will travel interstate 10 times, six times to Victoria, including one to Kardinya Park, twice to Adelaide, and once to Brisbane and Sydney. In contrast, Carlton, Collingwood and Essendon will only leave Victoria four times each.
West Coast will play the majority of their games on Saturdays, enjoying at least a six day break most weeks. They are expected to lose both derby’s again, as they did in 2006, when they play Fremantle in rounds 3 and 18.

  1. Collingwood once again get the sweetest draw going. Surprising I know.

    And before you have rabid Geelong supporters on here threatening you Mark: “Kardinia” rather than “Kardinya”.
