    16 September 2017 12:43 AM 12

    Shell-shocked Sydney skipper Josh Kennedy was left searching for answers after the Geelong onslaught that brought the Swans’ AFL season to a close. Sydney’s much vaunted pressure was nowhere to be seen at the MCG as the Cats stormed to a 15.8 (98) to 5.9 (39) semi-final win on Friday night. “I’m not too sure to be honest,” Kennedy replied when asked

    15 September 2017 2:55 PM 10 1

    Geelong's best player at the MCG on Friday night was a man who hadn't played an AFL game in more than 10 years.
