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.

21 Reasons to go to the Footy this Weekend

Wednesday, August 8th, 2018

It is Round 21 of the AFL Home and Away Season . As the end of the season draws closer many teams are competing to play in the 2018 AFL Final Series.

 

Richmond, the 2017 Premiers are firmly on top of the AFL Ladder , one game ahead of nearest rival,  the West Coast Eagles. Below the Eagles are six teams all with the same win and loss ratio. Two teams are just outside the top eight, trailing those above by just one game. At the other end of the ladder three teams share the bottom four spots with four wins. Carlton is on the bottom of the ladder with just two wins.

The top eight teams are closely matched with four Victorian clubs represented, and four interstate sides . This poses the question will it be a local derby for the 2018 Grand Final?  Or as in 2017 and 2016, will the Victorians play an interstate side to seize victory ? Time will tell as the 2018 AFL Football Season progresses.

St Kilda Saints football club have employed a greater use of the colour white. Essendon Bombers football club have incorporated the  use of the colour grey into their away strip .
