Review: Shake Down the Thunder- From Ugly Ducklings to AFL Premiers: The Story of the Sydney Swans
By Jim Main
Shake Down the Thunder  (Published by Geoff Slattery Publishing) is veteran AFL journalist and author Jim Main’s latest work and details the troubled, but ultimately successful, history of the Sydney Swans in the AFL’s most difficult market. Main has undergone extensive research and nearly a 100 interviews to detail a turbulent 25 years in football history from the words of the people involved. For the first time, one of the AFL’s most controversial, but little-known story is finally told in this gripping and extensive account.

Hurt Dogs Into Top Four

Carlton Blues and the Western Bulldogs have both produced seasons that are out of the norm for their respective clubs. The Western Bulldogs, originally Footscray have never been a top team, winning just the one Premiership. Their style of play has often been labelled ugly, not the fluid white-hot running of the 2006 version. Carlton has traditionally been a league powerhouse with 16 flags to their credit. The current Blues side is a world away from a Premiership threat.

The Bulldogs started the game in a fashion you'd expect a fifth ranked side playing fifteenth, with three quick goals. Daniel Giansiracusa kicked the first after finding space before Rohan Smith converted. Matthew Robbins took a trademark strong mark on a full pace lead for the Bulldogs third. Barnaby French got on the board first for the Blues, before Whitnall took a great one handed mark while holding off an opponent. Big name forwards Brad Johnston and Brendan Fevola scored a goal each for their respective  sides to finish the quarter.

Dockers Modest Win Keeps Finals Fire Flickering

By Tim Stone, AFANA Reporter in Perth

Fremantle have kept their 2006 campaign alive with a 37 point victory over the cellar dwellers in Essendon in front  34,000 supporters on a Friday night at Subi.  A less than convincing win would be the best way to describe Fremantles answer to their critics. Blundered opportunities from the Dons marred what was realistically a very even contest.

FINA or Footy?

Rugged Saints Overpower Magpies

By Barry Kennedy, AFANA Reporter in Melbourne
Last season the injury ravaged Collingwood side limped to 15th on the AFL ladder while St Kilda also didn’t live up to expectations of the football public, even with a Preliminary Final appearance. Season 2006 has been much kinder to Collingwood fans, their team flying high in third spot on the AFL ladder after 13 games. The jury was out for St Kilda, with only its long injury list the only defense to its seventh placing prior to yesterday’s clash. It was a crunch game for St Kilda against the upstarts from Collingwood and a chance to demonstrate their preeminence among Victorian clubs. That’s what they duly did.

There is sad news to report. Erin Walls, wife to former player and coach and current media commentator Robert Walls, passed away after a long battle with cancer. The news broke Sunday afternoon when 3AW caller Rex Hunt received word shortly after the conclusion of the Kangaroo / Bulldog game. Hunt and Walls were contemporaries in their playing days and, in the first years of their careers, played for Richmond and Carlton respectively, two sides which were bitter rivals at the time. Now Hunt and Walls are very good friends and sometimes work together on 3AW Radio with Hunt calling the games and Walls providing special comments. After the announcement, many fans calling in to the talkback forum
