18 August 2018 5:29 AM Canberra Demons fall despite Tom Faul's high-five

Even a Tom Faul masterclass couldn't stop the Canberra Demons' frustrating slide down the ladder that has left them facing a sudden death showdown on the road come finals time.

"I was very excited and quite surprised as well [to get the call from the Hawks], having not played in quite a while with my nose and just starting to get back in to training that week, it was very unexpected," Doran said.

It looks like a case of no Gaff, no Naitanui, no worries for the West Coast Eagles as they head for the AFL finals full of brotherhood and belief and primed for an unlikely assault on the AFL premiership. Adam Simpson's class of 2018 is looking steadier and sterner as the season rolls on with nothing, seemingly, able to clip their wings. Not the loss of their 12

12 August 2018 2:52 PM Cautious confidence from Dolphins coach after bold Pan Pacs showing

Jacco Verhaeren is not a man prone to statements of grandiosity.

Yet even the contemplative Dutchman admits the wind has started to ever so gently fill the sails of the national 12

12 August 2018 8:24 AM Tuggeranong United lose but still clinch first finals spot in 15 years

"To actually get it done is a really special feeling. We've worked really hard this year and I said to the guys it didn't come down to luck or another 12

11 August 2018 8:48 AM Vikings set up Royals rematch in grand final after thrashing Eagles

Royals lead the win tally 3-1 this season but Eagles coach Dan Atkins believes if Tuggeranong repeat their performance on Saturday, the premiership will be there's to lose. "It's a cliche saying but the better team won on the day and they really proved why they are the minor premiers," Atkins said. "We were on the back foot early and playing catch up from there 11

11 August 2018 8:41 AM Kangaroos coach hopping mad over Warriors loss

West Belconnen's win shut the door on the Yass Magpies' hopes of sneaking into the top four, with the Magpies edging the Goulburn Bulldogs 28-22 at Goulburn. They needed a massive win and hope the Kangaroos did the same to the Warriors to have any chance of playing finals. Kangaroos coach Aaron Gorrell was confident they could turn the result around 10
