In today’s Notebook there’s a look at how the Bulldogs beat Essendon’s pressure, Brisbane’s movement around stoppages and all the what ifs in the final stages of Carlton v Port Adelaide.
It seems to be all the rage this week, so let's start with my pre-game notes on what I’d watch for when North Melbourne faced Essendon at Metricon Stadium...
Round 5's edition of From The Notebook features St Kilda’s use of Jarryn Geary, Essendon laying a foundation and Gold Coast’s scoring from the centre.
Well … that was definitely a game. A really, really frustrating game.
Everyone who entered Etihad Stadium on Sunday knew how Essendon was going to attempt to play.
What a huge game at Etihad Stadium. A win, and North Melbourne is just one game off second. Second.
