afl season 2015

GWS Giants Podcasts Foxtel from Telstra Meanwhile the Swans have spent the last six months pondering what could have been after copping a 63-point hiding from Hawthorn in the grand final.The future of former captain Chris Judd will again be a talking point and there is speculation that 2015 could be his final year. Saints set for finals return The Crows’ home ground advantage and the Roos’ poor record against them in the City of Churches will almost certainly make the Crows favourites here. It will only add to the speculation surrounding the future of Mick Malthouse, who is in the final season of a three-year contract.But they will be without their captain Tom Rockliff, who suffered a rib/lung injury in the loss to the Pies and will be out for six weeks, leaving either Daniel Rich or Dayne Zorko to lead the side in his absence.But it wasn’t all doom and gloom for Chris Scott’s men, for whom Mitch Clark made a promising return to AFL football after nearly two years out of the game due to clinical depression, while Nakia Cockatoo proved his worth as a top ten draft pick.As daunting as the visit to Simonds Stadium may be for Ross Lyon’s men, the club do have some fond memories from the ground, including a shock qualifying final win over the Cats in 2013 and an against-all-odds victory in 2005 which came a week after the club copped a nine-goal hiding by then-lowly Hawthorn at home.Even though the Bulldogs got them by just two points last time, the Tigers should have no trouble in going 2-0 up to start the year on Saturday.Their recent record against the Eagles is still good, having won the last two meetings including here in Round 4, 2013. Mr McLachlan said the fixture was constructed with the primary aim to maximise attendances at all matches to enable fans to access the game in strong numbers, as well as to continue to build the AFL game as the number one code in this country.Among those changes, Mr McLachlan said, would be a focus on Saturday twilight football for the Gold Coast, no early start-time matches for the two WA-based clubs at Patersons Stadium and an increase in the number of day matches played in Victoria.
