Lance Franklin of the Sydney SwansThe Swans had won their last six games and looked set to run the listless Tigers into the ground before the Tigers found their mojo in the third quarter and produced a scintillating seven goal quarter.

Even before the ball was bounced to start the first quarter, the Swans were showing signs they meant business with Lance (Buddy) Franklin and his opponent Alex Rance

Fox and the Magpies vs. Giants Match on June 14
admincms's picture

As many fans know, coverage of the Collingwood v GWS match this past weekend (Round 11, 6/14/15) was interrupted by live soccer coverage. AFANA was made aware of the issue very quickly and responded to fans on Twitter. Here is the full story, the FOX statement, and what we can expect in the future:

On Fox Sports 1, coverage of the auto race in progress was weather delayed and thus ran past the allotted time. That meant the live coverage of the USA v Serbia in the Women’s FIFA tourney, which was to air on FS1, was bumped from FS1 to Fox Sports 2. This meant the FS2 coverage of the FIFA U-20 tourney was bumped from FS2 to Fox Soccer Plus.

Chris JuddSix minutes into the first quarter at Carlton's Round 10 match against Adelaide, Chris Judd landed awkwardly and his knee buckled. Later, the worst was confirmed. Judd had ruptured his ACL. When asked by a reporter later that night if it was probably the end, Judd replied "Yep". Two days later, Judd confirmed that he was retiring. Judd admitted that it wasn't easy to walk away from football, calling it his life's passion. Even he knew it was the end when the injury was confirmed. He described his career as "... an incredible fortunate journey" from which he will take many fond memories.

Riewoldt Marks for Richmond on way to win over DockersThe Fremantle Dockers entered Friday night’s home clash with visiting Richmond, searching for what would be a club record tenth win in as many games to start the season. Despite a close call with Adelaide in round nine, no team had been able to penetrate the vaunted Fremantle defense well enough to end the winning streak in 2015. Richmond went into the game on a roll of its own, having chalked up three wins in a row against quality opposition after an indifferent 2-4 start to the season. While the Tigers had not beaten Fremantle in Western Australia since 2009, they could take some solace in the fact their away record has been solid over the past few seasons.
