Okay after round 18 (there are 23 rounds) the Adelaide Crows (Isca's team of old) are still at the front (after a draw with Collingwood). Collingwood are not very good this year so maybe a slip for the Crows. Sydney Swans surprisingly lost to Hawthorn, surprising in that Sydney were easily the form team and were flying. The West Coast Eagles (Mr Stroud) picked up a win but alas St Kilda (Edin) and Essendon (Fred) both lost.

It is very tight in the table (or ladder as they call it). You need to be in the top 8 after 23 rounds (matches) to qualify for the big knock out thingy at the end of the season (Isca or Stroudy can explain that bit as still a bit new to me).

As things stand Adelaide Crows are pretty much guaranteed and will probably win the league, but the Swans are currently in 6th, West Coast Eagles in 8th, Essenden in 10th and St Kilda in 11th. West Coast in 8th currently have 40 points but you get 4 points for a win here, and 11th place St Kilda are on 36, so all to play for in terms of the teams that Exewebbers are interested in..........

My next live game for me is the 12th of Aug where Sydney Swans play Fremantle (one of the perth teams).

I'd forgotten that Fremantle had a combined AFL team these days - I would certainly have supported them had they existed back in the early 90s.

My 'non-league' team then was my local one - East Fremantle (Sharks), whose derby with South Fremantle (Bulldogs) was always a feisty affair, before the two merged in 1994/5 to become the 'Fremantle Dockers' AFL team of today.
