AFL Round 15 - Week in Review

Round 15 was another outstanding week of footy, with nail-biting finishes for some, and shock results for others.

 

The Brisbane Lions ended an 8 year WA drought this week as they defeated the Dockers by 55 points, their first win in Perth since 2010 and just their second win for the season so far. Fremantle’s already slim finals hopes became even slimmer with superstar midfielder Nat Fyfe hobbling off in the second quarter with a hamstring injury, and Aaron Sandilands withdrawn moments before the opening bounce with a right calf injury.

 

Fans were on the edge of their seats as Melbourne took on St Kilda at the MCG, with the Saints snatching the win by just 2 points in a nail-biting finish. The Demons haven’t qualified for finals since 2006, and after three consecutive losses, find themselves in danger of losing their spot in the Top 8.

 

It was a much needed win for Adelaide this week, defeating West Coast 12.16 (88) to 12.6 (78), breaking a four-game losing streak in a dramatic comeback in the final quarter. Star skipper Taylor Walker kicked an impressive three goals in the second half, with the team scoring six consecutive goals to keep their season alive after being plagued by injury.

 

Collingwood have risen two spots to 2nd on the ladder this week after defeating Gold Coast, with Richmond holding the top spot for the third week in a row. GWS have moved up a huge 4 spots this week to 6th after defeating Hawthorn, with Sydney falling down two to 4th and Melbourne also down a spot to 7th.
