9 July 2018 11:46 AM Dockers young gun earns AFL Rising Star nomination

"I'm only 18, so I've still got plenty to learn and I didn't expect to play this many games straight away, but the fact I have is pleasing. "I've had a bit of inconsistency at times, but … I'm playing with new teammates and being a young team, I think we all experience that a little bit." Cerra is the second Fremantle Docker to make the nominee list this year, with 19-year-old 13

19 May 2018 1:00 PM The end of the Bushrangers? Such is life

Today Australia is saturated with nonsensical names for its sporting teams. It starts with the Socceroos and Matildas in men’s and women’s soccer and gets worse from there. There’s the Boomers and the Opals in basketball; Sharks and Stingers in water polo; the Kookaburras and the Hockeyroos in hockey. If the names for our national teams reflect a desperate 32

28 March 2018 7:49 AM Canberra Demons coach Kade Klemke happy to represent God in NEAFL opener against Southport Sharks

Every time he runs out onto the field, he's playing for God. Friday will be no different. He won't be the only one representing his religion against the Sharks, with Jack Nunn and Matthew Vardanega also holding strong beliefs. "I'm not just playing footy because I love [it], I do it for God," Klemke said. "I want to represent God when I'm in the footy 28

The Greater Western Sydney Giants can't take a trick with lights at the moment. They nearly had an AFL pre-season game against the Collingwood Magpies cut short at Manuka Oval as three of the six light towers failed to turn on in the first quarter. It came six days after a practice match against the Sydney Swans was cut short early in the fourth quarter 35

14 February 2018 9:00 AM Peter FitzSimons' predictions for the sporting year of 2018

Canterbury Bulldogs will rise. Without being unkind, I have no clue how the board led by Ray Dib got as close as they did to holding on to power in the elections last weekend. In the course of Dib's reign, the Dogs lost damn nigh everything, starting with their matches, and up to and including their two most revered and passionate players, Josh Reynolds 31

13 December 2017 3:55 AM Sydney Swans young gun Isaac Heeney has knee surgery

Isaac Heeney will miss at least a month of pre-season, with the Sydney young gun sidelined due to knee surgery. The Swans announced on Wednesday that Heeney had undergone a "precautionary arthroscope" after the 21-year-old had experienced discomfort during training sessions. Heeney had minor cartilage damage in a small area, which has been repaired by surgeons 59

25 November 2017 6:34 AM Collingwood would have taken Nathan Murphy at pick six, if not for Jaidyn Stephenson

It is a post-draft cliche for clubs to boast about their bargains and tell anyone who will listen how they couldn't believe a certain player was still available at a given pick. But in the case of Collingwood and Nathan Murphy, the Magpies really did have something to crow about. The Magpies took Murphy at pick 39, their second selection at Friday night's 62 1

31 October 2017 2:25 AM 2018 AFL fixtures: No Friday night lights at new Perth Stadium

But the AFL decided to issue no Friday night games at the stadium all season, meaning both clubs lose important television exposure across Australia in the high-rating slot. WA engineers previously expressed concerns the Perth Stadium footbridge could collapse due to poor welds. The only way a Friday night game will be played at the new stadium is if one of the WA clubs 46

The 2017 AFL trade and free agency period is officially at an end. Below you can find all the details of every deal that was done this year.
