We’re still yet to know the extent of Kaiden Brand injury after popping his shoulder in the first 5 minutes of last nights match. There are no other injuries to report at this stage.

Now we look ahead to tonight’s match where West Coast will host Carlton at Mandurah (70km south of Perth). Carlton have names 10 new Blues to their 29 man lineup while West Coast are opting for more experience on the back of their match last week against the Indigenous All-Stars. Which players will you be watching closely?

It’s all over in Tassie with Collingwood registering a 44 point win over last years premiers! Collingwood 0.17.14 (116) def. Hawthorn 2.8.6 (72)

There was plenty to like about the Pies, who managed to have 10 individual goal scorers including 4 for Alex Fasolo and 3 for Patrick Karnezis.

Sam Mitchell was as classy as ever registering 24 disposals including and an impressive super goal.

We’ll be back in the morning with the outfall from tonight’s match including any injury and tribunal concerns.


3QT at Aurora and the Pies have extended their half time lead to 11 points. Hawks 2.6.5 (59) Pies 0.10.10 (70)

Sam Mitchell will feature in the highlight reel with this epic super goal, who knew he had it in him!

Hands up if you knew Sam Mitchell could still kick like this! #supergoal #NABChallenge http://t.co/352JNrAqC0

Half time at Aurora Stadium and it’s Collingwood 0.7.6 (48) that lead Hawthorn 1.5.3 (42).

Jed Anderson has given Hawks fans plenty to talk about while Jesse White has been solid in front of goals for Collingwood. What can we expect in the second half?

Jonathan Brown has Dermie on one side and Dwayne Russell on the other. Must be regretting retirement. #NABChallenge

I know that it's only the #NABChallenge, but I'm very impressed by Jack Crisp so far. #AFLHawksPies

We are away for 2015!


A bit bright at Aurora Stadium? The Fox Footy commentators are squinting like a sleepy sloth.

Somebody get Brownie a pair of sunnies quick! #AFLHawksPies

The moment we have been waiting for has arrive. Footy returns tonight in the form of the NAB Challenge. Ok, it’s not the real season but we’ll take it! Strangly, it kicks of tonight in Launceston between the Hawks and Magpies.
