While the AFL had some interesting results, some surprises and some annihilations, we will take a look at how all the reserves went around the country, and who is looking to earn a spot back in the senior side.



Peel Thunder 7.6.48 def by. Subiaco 21.14.140

Former Sun Harley Bennell got through his second consecutive from a calf injury, albeit a quiet game for the Thunder in their 92-point defeat to Subiaco.

Bennell had eight touches, and a goal, while fellow Docker Stefan Giro was Peel’s best, gathering 27 touches, nine tackles and kicking a major.

Shane Kersten performed steadily in a new role in defence, gathering 19 touches in what was a busy day for the Thunder’s back six.

East Perth 8.5.53 def by. South Fremantle 18.13.121

It was a short game for Eagles veteran Will Schofield, who left the game in the first quarter with a hamstring issue and didn’t return, as East Perth went down by 78 points.

Young midfielder, Brayden Ainsworth, was busy all day gathering 27 touches and two goals, while Jackson Nelson (19 touches) and Matthew Allen (21) were busy in a disappointing day.
