Cat set for surgery on fractured eye socket

Doc Larkins' injury wrap: R14 The Doc analyses the big injuries out of the weekend's matches

AFL 2017 Round 14 - Geelong v Fremantle

Tom Stewart will undergo surgery on Tuesday

GEELONG defender Tom Stewart will undergo surgery on Tuesday to repair the fractured eye socket he suffered in Sunday's dramatic win over Fremantle.

The Cats remain uncertain as to how many weeks the 24-year-old will be forced to miss and expect to have a clearer indication after his operation.

Stewart was one of Geelong's best players in the first half before he clashed heads with Fremantle's Hayden Crozier when attempting to spoil just before half-time.

He went to hospital after the game but was home on Monday and will be operated on in Geelong on Tuesday.

Stewart has made an outstanding start to his AFL career, playing 12 games after being drafted with pick No.40 in the 2016 NAB AFL Draft.

Meanwhile, skipper Joel Selwood was in at Simonds...

Bulldogs skipper set to return against Eagles

AFL 2017 Round 10 - Western Bulldogs v St Kilda

Robert Murphy hasn't played since round 10 against St Kilda

WESTERN Bulldogs captain Robert Murphy is set to make his return from a hamstring injury against West Coast on Saturday, although courageous forward Liam Picken is in doubt with a knee injury.

Murphy hurt his hamstring in the Bulldogs' 40-point win over St Kilda in round 10 and has missed the past three matches (with a bye in between). 

Bulldogs physiotherapist Chris Bell said Murphy had entered the next phase of his training.

"On the weekend Bob Murphy completed the final stages of his rehab for his hamstring injury," Bell told westernbulldogs.com.au

"He’s due to return to full training this week with the squad and is line for selection this weekend." 

There are concerns for Picken, though, who sustained a knee injury in the Dogs' one-point win over North Melbourne at Etihad Stadium on Saturday night. 

"In the third...

AFL 2017 Round 12 - Essendon v Port Adelaide

Joe Daniher has signed a new three-year deal

ESSENDON has re-signed one of its most exciting players, with star forward Joe Daniher inking a new three-year contract extension.

The new deal will see Daniher, equal-third in the Coleman Medal with 35 goals, tied to the Bombers until at least the end of the 2020 season.

It has been reported the deal is worth close to $2million across the three years.

"I'm really excited to commit to the club for a further three years," Daniher told the club's website.

"I'm confident and proud of the direction we're going as a football club, we have a great group of players who are working extremely hard to take the club where it needs to be.

"I'm really enjoying my football at Essendon, and that is largely due to the relationships that I have formed over the early part of my career and the positive direction we're heading in as a group.

Power move quickly to lock in rising star

AFL 2017 Round 13 - Port Adelaide v Brisbane

Sam Powell-Pepper has signed a new deal with the Power

PORT Adelaide has locked away one of its most promising young players, with NAB AFL Rising Star contender Sam Powell-Pepper to remain at Alberton until the end of 2020.

Powell-Pepper has signed a new two-year contract extension, in addition to his original mandated two seasons as pick No.18 in last year's NAB AFL Draft.

The 19-year-old, nominated for the Rising Star in round one, said he had settled in nicely to his new surrounds.

"I'm really thrilled, I love the club and everyone here. I'm just stoked to be here for another two years on top of my current contract," Powell-Pepper told portadelaidefc.com.au.

"I was pretty thrilled to get the [Rising Star] nomination. It's been a fairytale start to play every game and be injury free; I couldn't ask for much more.

Top Lion draftee bags Rising Star nomination

AFL 2017 Round 13 - Port Adelaide v Brisbane

Hugh McCluggage is the round 14 NAB AFL Rising Star nomination

ONE OF the key planks in the Brisbane Lions' future has urged fans and the football public alike to put faith in the club's direction.

There is a new positivity about the Lions since prized key forward Josh Schache re-signed last month in a landmark decision followed days later by a big win over Fremantle.

North Ballarat Rebels product Hugh McCluggage also became a major part of Brisbane's blueprint for success when the Lions selected him with the third pick of last year's NAB AFL Draft.

The 19-year-old is now responsible for creating even more hope after his best AFL game yet on Saturday saw him recognised as the round 14 NAB AFL Rising Star nominee.

McCluggage racked up 19 disposals, eight marks and nine score involvements to be one of the Lions' best players in the loss to Greater Western Sydney. 

He is enjoying life...

Concussed Saint ruled out, but 'will be fine'

VFL 2017 Round 02 - Sandringham v Richmond

Saint Paddy McCartin was concussed yet again in the VFL

ST KILDA has confirmed key forward Paddy McCartin will not play this weekend after suffering his sixth concussion since 2014 on Saturday. 

The 21-year-old had his head over the ball at a contest at ground level during the first quarter of VFL affiliate Sandringham's clash with Coburg when he was struck in the head by an opponent's hip. 

McCartin walked off the ground and took no further part in the match.

Saints coach Alan Richardson said McCartin would not feature at any level this week, but stressed the youngster's latest knock would have no long-term implications. 

"Paddy would've played this week if he had have pulled up well but the reality is he's still a little bit off and so he won't play this week," Richardson told Fox Footy on Monday night. 

"He's very likely to play the week after.

GREATER Western Sydney defender Aidan Corr is the latest player to pledge his commitment to the club after extending his contract for a further two years.

Corr wasn't due to come out of contract until the end of next season, but is now tied to the Giants until the end of 2020.

The 23-year-old played just three senior games in a horror 2016 season due to a serious ankle injury, but has put that behind him to re-establish himself in Leon Cameron's best 18 this year.

With his speed and versatility, Corr is an important member of the GWS backline, and said his decision to join Dylan Shiel, Jon Patton, Zac Williams and Adam Tomlinson in...

Goddard opens up on costly kick-in error

Watch the last two minutes: Syd v Ess An incredible finish at the SCG

ESSENDON veteran Brendon Goddard has spoken about his costly kick-in error in the closing minute of Friday night's epic clash with Sydney, saying he "hung onto the ball too long waiting for something to open up". 

With 28 seconds remaining and the Bombers leading by five points after a Lance Franklin long-range miss, Goddard played on from the kick-in and an attentive Tom Papley smothered his effort, forcing a stoppage deep in the pocket. 

Swans defender Dane Rampe charged through the stoppage and his hurried snap landed in the arms of forward Gary Rohan, who outmuscled Bomber Martin Gleeson in the square and kicked a goal after the siren for a one-point win. 

Goddard explained his kick-in clanger on Monday night.

"I didn't know how long was left but in the front of my mind was about getting yardage and (kicking...

Eagles consider challenging Schofield ban

WEST Coast coach Adam Simpson was "a bit surprised" Will Schofield was offered a one-match ban for striking Clayton Oliver, and says the Eagles are weighing-up challenging the sanction.

Meanwhile, dual Coleman medallist Josh Kennedy (calf/Achilles) has been ruled out of Saturday's crunch away game against the Western Bulldogs, and skipper Shannon Hurn is also doubtful after a heavy hit from Jack Viney. 

In a controversial incident, Schofield's glancing elbow caught Melbourne youngster Oliver's chin during a half-time scuffle in the Demons' thrilling three-point win on Saturday night. 

The Demon collapsed to the ground immediately and social media lit up with criticism of the 19-year-old for staging.

Injury wrap: Sore Cats face serious depth test

GEELONG'S depth will be tested ahead of its top-of-the-table clash with Greater Western Sydney after being left with just one fit player on the bench in the second half against Fremantle.

Cats captain Joel Selwood was knocked out in the first minute of the match after receiving a head knock to the side of his jaw from Dockers forward Hayden Ballantyne.

• Around the state leagues: Who starred in your club's twos?

Selwood was clearly wobbly on his feet, but decided to walk off in the hands of trainers despite the stretcher being called onto the ground.

The courageous skipper even pushed the trainers away and jogged across the remaining stretch of field, before sitting out the game with concussion.

Cat won't ever 'feel comfortable' at top level

AFL 2017 Round 14 - Geelong v Fremantle

Sam Menegola celebrates a goal against Fremantle

DESPITE signing a three-year contract last week, Geelong midfielder Sam Menegola doesn't think he will "ever feel comfortable" in the AFL.

Menegola collected 22 disposals and a goal in the Cats' two-point comeback win against Fremantle on Sunday at Simonds Stadium and has impressed since he was drafted at No. 66 in the 2015 NAB AFL Draft.

The West Australian's deal has him signed to the club until the end of 2020 but his tumultuous time in the AFL keeps him on edge.

The 25-year-old was a rookie at Hawthorn and Fremantle and spent time with Subiaco in the WAFL before finding himself on the Cats' list.

"With some of the curve balls AFL has thrown me, it just keeps you on your toes," Menegola told Melbourne radio station RSN on Monday morning.

"Even at the start of this year, I was out of the side in round one and two off a really good...

Houli says sorry to Blue for KO blow

Houli reported for Lamb strike Bachar Houli is in the book for this incident with Jed Lamb.

BACHAR Houli has contacted Jed Lamb to apologise for the swinging arm that ended the Carlton forward's game on Sunday.

"I texted him last night, obviously feeling remorse about it," the Richmond defender told AFL.com.au on Monday morning.

Houli denied the contact was intentional.

Glenn Archer has apologised for an incident at a junior football match

NORTH Melbourne board member and playing legend Glenn Archer has been charged by police over an incident at a junior football match on Sunday.

 

Victoria Police confirmed on Monday it had charged a man with one count of unlawful assault.

 

Archer, 44, has been bailed to appear at the Heidelberg Magistrates' Court on Friday, September 1.

 

Earlier Archer went on the front foot, apologising for overstepping the mark.

 

The incident, which allegedly saw Archer leap the fence and confront a boundary umpire, occurred at an under-15s game.

 

Archer's son Jackson was playing for Park Orchards against Banyule in the Yarra Junior Football League at Beverley Road Oval.

 

Archer told Melbourne radio station SEN on Monday morning he jumped the fence after a player was struck in the head.

 

"Instinctively, I go into...

Hardwick left frustrated at 'ugly' Tigers win

Tigers 'looked the stronger side' Richmond coach Damien Hardwick says his side fought through to victory in a 'frustrating' game

A FRUSTRATED Damien Hardwick was satisfied Richmond banked its eighth victory of the year despite having to win "a little ugly" at the MCG on Sunday.

The Tigers trailed at quarter-time, but dominated almost every key statistic as they eventually cleared out to a 26-point success over a dogged Carlton line-up. 

Full match coverage and stats

They remain in sixth place, level on wins with Melbourne and next opponent Port Adelaide, which hosts Richmond at Adelaide Oval on Saturday night. 

"I never really felt we were probably challenged, if that makes sense," Hardwick said.

Around the state leagues: Who starred for your club?

State league affiliate: Adelaide (SANFL)
This weekend: Sturt v Adelaide - Saturday, June 24, 2.10pm, Peter Motley Oval  

Experienced onballer Scott Thompson racked up 33 disposals and kicked two goals in Adelaide's 36-point win against Central District at My Money House on Saturday afternoon.

Thompson, 34, is yet to play a game in the senior team this season. 

Mitch McGovern finished with nine disposals in his second match back from a hamstring injury. 

Riley Knight collected 18 disposals and slotted two goals after being dropped. 

Runners David Mackay (26 disposals) and Paul Seedsman (24) won plenty of the footy. 

Seedsman lined up in his second straight match after having missed most of the year with a groin injury.

After the siren: Best weekend ever? It's right up there

IN TERMS of drama and impact, nothing will ever beat the final round of the home and away season in 1987.

Hawthorn champion Jason Dunstall's last-minute goal at Kardinia Park knocked Geelong out of the finals and paved the way for Melbourne to make it for the first time in 23 years by beating Footscray at the Whitten Oval.

Meanwhile at Waverley, Carlton kept the Hawks from claiming top spot – and the precious week's break that came with it – courtesy of Stephen Kernahan's goal after the siren.

But the weekend of footy just gone comes awfully close. Hawthorn's fabulous win over Adelaide on Thursday night at Adelaide Oval (17th beating first for the second straight week) might have stood up all weekend.

Yet the events that followed over the next 72 hours had already consigned it to the "ancient history" basket by Sunday night.

We'll get to the Hawks a bit later. Let's start instead...

Fantasy form watch: Danger delivers just in time

AFL 2017 Round 14 - Geelong v Fremantle

Patrick Dangerfield saved what was looking like a middling score with a brilliant last quarter performance

WITH the bye rounds a distant memory, it was finally back to business as usual… or so we thought. Then a host of big names were omitted on Thursday night and Friday leaving many coaches scrambling just to field a team. The end result was reminiscent of the previous three weeks with bench players once again finding themselves on the ground, churning out heart wrenching 40s. Fortunately, many of the stars that did hit the field scored well… unless of course they were injured or tagged for the first time in their career.

Fantasy pig

Jack Macrae has been solid, without being outstanding until repaying the faith of his coaches with a round high 137 against the Roos, highlighted by seven marks and 10 tackles. It was great to see him back to his best, roaming the field for 32...

Dee, ex-Test cricketer in Twitter spat over 'dive'

Schofield reported for clocking Clay Clayton Oliver goes down after a hit from Will Schofield

MELBOURNE midfielder Clayton Oliver and former Test cricketer Damien Martyn have engaged in a fiery Twitter exchange over the Demon's reaction to being struck by Eagle Will Schofield on Saturday night. 

Schofield's elbow caught Oliver with a glancing blow to the chin at half-time at Domain Stadium and Oliver fell to the ground immediately afterwards. 

Schofield was reported for the hit but reaction from fans on social media was critical of Oliver, suggesting the Demon had 'dived' to make the most of the incident.

Full match coverage and statistics

In a post-game interview, Oliver said he had been stunned by the contact from Schofield but Martyn was sceptical, to say the least.
