Richmond 67 def by GWS 106

The Giants helped put an end to the great Richmond era on Friday night, thrashing the reigning premiers by 39 points at Marvel Stadium.

Despite both teams desperately needing a win, the Giants proved to be too good for the tired Tigers, who's final chances have now become near impossible.

Despite the loss of Toby Greene, the Giants were not fazed, with midfielder Tim Taranto kicking an impressive four goals. Returning pair Josh Kelly and Jacob Hopper were also terrific in the Giants midfield, as well as defender Isaac Cumming who remained solid in the backline.

Western Bulldogs 37 def by Hawthorn 64

A 27-point win over one of the premiership favourites saw the Hawks pull of one of the biggest upsets of the round.

With Alistair Clarkson set to coach his last game for the Hawks this week, his team did not disappoint in sending him off the best way possible.

Despite wet and windy conditions, the Hawks continued to win the midfield battle and make the most of their opportunities in front of goal. Daniel Howe was a standout for the Hawks, collecting an impressive 34 disposals, kicking a goal and collecting 717 metres.

The Game was a worrying sign for Luke Beveridge's side, who's poor form has allowed them to slide down to fourth on the ladder.

Ed Carmine: 5. Daniel Howe, 4. Jonathon Ceglar, 3. Tom Mitchell, 2. Chad Wingard, 1. Bailey Dale.

Carlton 45 def by Port Adelaide 140

Port did not hold back against a depleted Carlton, generating a significant percentage-boosting victory that helped claim third spot on the ladder.

Despite Carlton taking an early lead, the power quickly turned the game around. Travis Boak (31 disposals), Karl Amon (30 disposals) and Ollie Wines (30 disposals) were the most dominant in helping create the win. The impressive four goals from Dixon should also be noted, as well as the impenetrable Aliir Aliir in the back line.

With Carlton Coach David Teague already under significant pressure, the match was exactly what the club did not need. The game was also a depressing send off for Carlton great Marc Murphy, who played his 300th and last AFL game.

Ed Carmine: 5. Travis Boak, 4. Ollie Wines, 3. karl Amon, 2. Aliir Aliir, 1. Zak Butters.

St Kilda 71 def by Geelong 85

The Cats locked a spot in the top four on Saturday, in a gritty 14-point win over the Saints.

Despite the Saints leading an impressive 31-0 in the first quarter, the Cats fought hard, kicking four goals in a row to help put them back into the game.

Dangerfield, Menegola and Guthrie were stand outs for the Cats, particularly with the skipper who sealed the game with a mark on the goal line.

The game moves the Cats into second spot on the ladder, and leaves the Saints outside the eight.

Ed Carmine: 5. Patrick Dangerfield, 4. Sam Menegola, 3. Jack Steele, 2. Cameron Guthrie, 1. Rhys Stanley.

Collingwood 57 def by Brisbane 142

The Lions eye the top four after demolishing the Pies by 82 points at the Gabba on Saturday night.

Jarryd Lyons was essential in giving the Lions their lead, gathering 15 of his 29 disposals in just the first half. Zac Bailey and Lachie Neale were also notable, particularly Neale who not only managed to collect 30 disposals but kick a goal from 45m out.

North Melbourne 77 def by Sydney Swans 91

The Kangaroos will receive their first wooden spoon since 1972, after losing to the Swans by 14 points.

Despite a strong start from the Swans, the Roos' second half surge from players such as Davies-Uniacke (24 disposals) created an unexpected pressure. Yet the class of Parker (25 disposals) and Cunningham (26 disposals) proved too much for the Kangaroos.

The Swans were left with some concerns after the game coming into finals, with both Blakey and Kennedy out due to injuries.

Ed Carmine: 5. Harry Cunningham, 4. George Hewett, 3. Luke Parker, 2. Luke Davies-Uniacke, 1. Will Hayward.

Adelaide 63 def by Melbourne 104

The Demons have claimed the title of premiership favourites, after a hard fought 41-point victory over the Adelaide Crows.

Despite the Crows booting four of the first five goals, the experience and class of Petracca, Gawn and Oliver displayed why the Demons are indeed the team to be reckoned with going into finals.

Gold Coast 30 def by Essendon 98

The Bombers kept their finals hopes alive on Sunday afternoon, smashing the Gold Coast Suns by an impressive 68 points.

Despite a slow start against the Suns, the Dons kicked an exceptional six goals in the second quarter to set them up for victory. Stringer was pivotal in their victory collecting 19 disposals and kicking five goals, however Parish (35 disposals) and Merrett (32) should also be noted for their dominance in the midfield.

The Bombers must win against rivals Collingwood this week to ensure a spot in the eight.

Ed Carmine: 5. Jake Stringer, 4. Darcy Parish, 3. Zach Merrett, 2. Mason Redman, 1. Touk Miller.

West Coast 64 def by Fremantle 79

The Dockers not only pulled off the biggest upset of the round on Sunday night, but broke the six year Western derby drought.

In a thrilling matchup, the Dockers secured a 15 point victory and chance at finals, leaving the Eagles at risk of securing a place in the eight.

Glendinning-Allen medallist Caleb Serong (32 disposals and two goals) was a the standout for Freo, who's performance was no doubt the most influential in dragging the Dockers over the line.
