Round 13 AFL results

Sydney sneaks past Richmond in an MCG heart-stopper

Sydney won a thriller by nine points.

Richmond led by six goals in the second term, but the Swans ground their way back into the contest.

Jimmy Bartel said the Tigers should learn from their opponents.

“They got completely out-played in the first quarter but they just kept whacking away,” Jimmy said.

“Richmond have faded away in last quarters this year.

“Again, they only kicked one goal to Sydney’s five.”

The crowd of 58,721 was a home and away record for these two clubs.

Richmond lead by 25 points after a blistering start in which they kicked the first six goals of the game.


Blues secure gutsy 10-point win on the Gold Coast

Carlton won by 10 points.

The match was overshadowed by an ugly leg injury to Michael Barlow.

Bryce Gibbs was simply monumental, putting together a very impressive game: 44 disposals, 10 tackles, seven clearances, and two goals.

Demons demolish Dogs under the roof

Melbourne won by 57 points.

Jack Watts booted three goals and Jordan Lewis accumulated 31 touches as the Dees led from the outset.

Cameron Ling said Melbourne’s hard, contested players were brilliant.

Matthew Richardson said the heavy loss could be costly for the Bulldogs with the ladder as tight as it is.

At half-time, Melbourne lead by 34 points after grinding out a strong start.


St Kilda beats North in a scrappy contest

St Kilda won a forgettable game by 17 points.

The game never reached any great heights, with Matthew Lloyd saying he found it tough to find five players to give votes to.

Patrick Dangerfield said St Kilda could have used a percentage-booster after leading by more than six goals at half time.

“When the competition is so close, it’s one that got away for St Kilda,” Danger said.

St Kilda coach Alan Richardson spoke to 3AW on Saturday afternoon.

He said he’s happy for Jack Steven to be tagged out of a game.

When he’s getting tagged, it frees someone else up,” Richardson said.

“It sounds impersonal, but I don’t care about individuals. I care about the team.

“If we’re 36 points up at half time and one of our better players hasn’t had a kick, I’m happy with that.”

Steven had just 16 disposals after being shut down by young Roo Declan Mountford.

Richardson also said he doesn’t want the AFL to do away with runners.
