Luke’s Look – Round 15, 2012 – Back from the Byes

Luke’s Look – Round 15, 2012 – Back from the Byes After a mid-season break throughout the bye rounds (please AFL, let’s not see those again in 2013!), we’re back for another wrap of the results from the weekend, with round 15 giving us some fantastic matches including a number of genuine surprises.  Let’s look […]

Luke’s Look – Round 10, 2012 – Best! Round! Ever!

Luke’s Look – Round 10, 2012 – Best! Round! Ever! I’d go as far as saying that round 10 was one of the best rounds in recent memory, from my point of view anyway.  With so much happening throughout the weekend, seemingly in every match played, let’s get straight into it with the recap of […]

Luke’s Look – Round 8, 2012 – That Pendlebury kid can play a little!

Round Review – Round 8, 2012 There were few surprises in round 8, compared to the unpredictable round of footy that we endured in round 7.  With only a couple of “50-50” games in the round, let’s look at some of the results in more detail. Friday night saw a 2011 Grand Final re-match between […]

Luke’s Look – Round 7, 2012 – I tipped this! Okay, So I didn’t!

Round Review – Round 7, 2012 It’s staggering that we’re already 7 rounds into the 2012 AFL Season.  This round was a much more difficult week to tip a winner, with upsets seemingly everywhere, so let’s take a look at the events from the round just gone. Round 7 started in conventional style, with Hawthorn […]

Luke’s Look – Round 2, 2012 – Blowouts, Beauties, Ball Winners

Round Review – Round 2, 2012 In contrast to the sensational opening round last week, the Easter weekend of AFL didn’t exactly deliver on expectations.  Let’s have a quick look at the better games before my favourite and not-so favourite things from Round 2. The footy weekend kicked off on Easter Thursday, with the Lions […]

Luke’s Look – Round 1, 2012 – Giant start to the Season

Round Review – Round 1, 2012 This season, at the conclusion of most rounds, I’ll be writing a summary of the weekend’s action, as well as looking at what I liked, and didn’t like, from the round.  Not every match may be covered, but some of the main discussion points will be touched upon and […]

Round Review – Round 16, 2011 – Eagles, Bombers and Carlton’s top four chances all up in the air!

They’re flying high All week, Friday night loomed as a what if game for the West Coast Eagles. Coming off the by in Round 15 and a big win at the MCG over premiership contenders Carlton the week before, the Eagles were a dark horse to inflict only the second defeat of Geelong this season. […]

Half-year Best and Fairest winners from every AFL club!

Generally around this point of the season, where teams have played half their games and players are either finding form or have been in form for weeks, media commentators start to rattle off their mid-year All-Australian line-ups. Here at AFL Space, we’ve decided to take a different approach. We’ve decided the best course of action […]

Round Review – Round 11, 2011: Bombers fizzle out, Melbourne win in a rout and the Hawks finally get some love

Rumours of Essendon’s rise have been greatly exaggerated With the return of golden boys and former premiership captains James Hird and Mark Thompson, the Essendon faithful had the fireworks of the finals dancing in their heads. Their blind faith was replaced with disillusionment this week, as the Bombers from Matthew Knights’ last season at the […]

Round Review – Round 10, 2011 – Collingwood hit top form, Fremantle slip up, and more thoughts from the football world

With the season approaching it’s halfway mark, and many teams now becoming identifiable as a hard-working unit (Hawthorn), not living up to their potential (Western Bulldogs) or simply not being interested in the game (not looking at anyone, Melbourne), it’s the time of year where football becomes very intriguing.
