An interesting opening weekend of AFL Posted on 7 Apr 22:10 , 0 comments
Thanks to the Cricket World Cup the AFL season got underway a little bit later this year.
The wait certainly felt like it was worth it.
In a crafty piece of scheduling the AFL sought to match teams off evenly based on their ladder positions last year.
So Fremantle and Port Adelaide matched up in a blockbuster showdown in Perth. This was a last man standing game with the defensive pressure of Freo up against the running power of Port. Freo grabbed the honours on the night but I think both sides walked away with a lot to like.
