End of Season

Monday, August 20th, 2018

The end of the 2018 Home and Away AFL Football Season is drawing closer. There is only one more round of home and away matches to be played. There were some interesting results and close finishes in last weekends round 22.



The Geelong Cats thrashed the Fremantle Dockers who appeared to have little incentive to play a good game as they are out of the Finals race. StKilda on the other hand played strong footy to almost defeat the 2018 Flag contenders the Hawks.

In the NSW derby Greater Western Sydney and the Sydney Swans fought it out with the Swans triumphant. The Sydney Swans have appeared in the last twenty finals series singling them out as a spectacularly successful AFL Club. Other weekend results saw the Richmond Tigers clear leaders on top of the AFL ladder hold of a gritty Essendon Bombers side.  A determined Melbourne Demons team travelled to the West and convincingly beat the West Coast Eagles by three goals.

Colours of Jumpers

Sunday, April 18th, 2010

All jumpers, jerseys , guerneys are distinctive colours . Whenever you think of a football club you always think of those colours.

St Kilda evokes red, white and black , Swans red and white and Collingwood black and white .Hawthorn brown and gold , and Carlton Navy Blue and white etc . So it goes.

These colours are reminscent of the club and its colours as worn in their teams jerseys , jumpers , guernseys.

New clubs to the afl have a limited choice of colours as most combinations are already taken by the victorian clubs.

Fremantle has had much success this year and their distinctive white with a purple anchor are unforgettable .They have forged a brand with a unique colour combination.
