This week on From The Notebook: Collingwood using 'the front of stoppages', Fremantle v St Kilda from both teams' perspectives, and explaining Sydney's tactics.
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.
