AFANA AFL Power Poll - Round Nine

Mark of the Year? Dave Woodley (AFANA)

Round nine was conspicuous in that the result of almost every game went as expected, an occurrence which has been extremely rare so far in 2019.

There were a dozen lead changes over the course of the game and it could have gone either way as time ticked down. Both sides were spent, but it was Lewis Jetta who danced on a dime to put the Eagles in front when it mattered – five minutes out from the final siren.
