Just the six VFL games over the weekend but there were plenty of takeaways from the Round 6 action.
A first-year Cat enjoyed a breakout performance in midfield to strengthen his debut chances, while Gold Coast have risen to top spot with another well-rounded performance.
Box Hill were handed their first loss of the season as a handful of draft prospects featured across the round.
Here's a wrap-up of Round 6 of the VFL.
Footscray vs Carlton (69 - 64)
Reid ended the day with 13 possessions, three marks, three tackles and two clearances in the five-point loss.
Blues winger Jaxon Binns was the standout for Carlton in the loss as he added to a strong debut campaign, while Lochie O'Brien booted multiple goals from his 22 possessions. After being managed at either level last week, Tom De Koning collected seven disposals and 13 hit-outs for a return of one goal.
Southport vs Northern Bullants (128 - 46)
The Sharks recorded their third win of the season with a healthy victory over the Bullants as Boyd Woodcock ran riot through midfield.
The former Port Adelaide forward collected 41 possessions and had 14 clearances whilst also being one of Southport's nine goalkickers.
Jack Sexton and Jed Foggo booted four goals each, while ruckman Brayden Crossley was dominant in the middle of the field with 20 disposals, eight marks, seven tackles, five clearances and 34 hit-outs.
Jean-Luc Velissaris good year for the Northern Bullants continued as he recorded 27 possessions, while teammates Patrick Fairlie and Spencer Johnson also featured among the lead ball winners.
Richmond vs Gold Coast (64 - 137)
Gold Coast's 73-point win was enough for the Suns to clinch top spot on the VFL ladder at the conclusion of Round 6, with the Carrara club posting a percentage of 188.8% from their opening five games of the year to be the only remaining undefeated side in the competition.
Charlie Constable's strong VFL campaign continued at Punt Road, with the ex-Cat collecting 32 possessions and one goal, with Connor Blakely (35 disposals) the only better ball winner for the afternoon.
Coburg vs Geelong (48 - 56)
Pick 8 from last year's draft, Clark will put himself in the frame for a potential AFL debut in the rounds ahead if he can continue a similar vein of form.
Clark wasn't the only first-year Cat to impress, with Ted Clohesy booting 1.2 from his 26 possessions.
Ben Jepson was once again among Coburg's best with 30 possessions to his name as Jhye Baddeley-Kelly and Nathan Boucher booted two goals each for the Lions.
Port Melbourne vs GWS (71 - 73)
A somewhat surprising result on Sunday as the Giants overcame the Borough to record a two-point win at North Port Oval.
Stand-in ruck option Wade Derksen collected 30 possessions, nine marks and 12 hit-outs in a matchup on Sam Naismith, who also had a prolific performance with 24 possessions, eight clearances and six tackles.
Defender Josh Fahey is nearing an AFL debut and did his selection prospects no harm, posting 25 possessions and 13 marks in the win.
Box Hill vs Casey (76 - 106)
The Demons handed Box Hill their first loss of the year out at Wonthaggi, with Gippsland Power draft prospect Zane Duursma pulling on the red and blue for the occasion.
Rookie Hawk Cam Mackenzie also bounced back from his demotion to the seconds with 30 possessions, while Lloyd Meek acted similarly with 46 hit-outs, six clearances and 26 touches in the loss.
