I actually tend to have some sympathy for your Ray Chamberlain analysis there.

He definitely loves it when the game is about him. From all appearances at least, it appears that he’s happiest when the attention is on him, whether it be popular or unpopular attention.

I’ve always believed that the best umpires don’t seek attention, and hope to remain irrelevant.

Pies fire in final quarter to book preliminary final

Called it as I saw it.

If not for De Goey, Collingwood would not have been in the match. He was an absolute star.

Giants were simply always up against it.

Pies fire in final quarter to book preliminary final

Called it as a I saw it Pieboy.

Your name clearly gives away that you’re a Collingwood fan, so we might just have to agree to disagree.

Pies fire in final quarter to book preliminary final

Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

Gotta say, re: Hartung, never thought I would hear that.

St Kilda Saints vs North Melbourne Kangaroos: AFL highlights, live scores, blog

Full Time
A fun affair, with the Kangaroos running out 17.15 (117) to 14.10 (94) winners over St Kilda.

Ben Brown missed out on the Coleman, and Jarrad Waite finishes off with a win to his name, his last kick in the game hitting the post after the siren.

North were always in control, but in a testament to their season, they never really killed off the opposition, and you always felt they were a chance to slip up.

Saints to their credit made it a contest, which was essentially a contest for pride, and the likes of Lonie, Steven, Billings and Carlisle should be ably assisted by the likes of Membrey and a fit McCartin next year.

and that brings to an end the AFL home and away season for 2018.

Big first round of finals coming up in two weeks – the Tigers meet the Hawks in September for the first time, a Sydney derby.

You will see it all here on The Roar.

But tonight, the Kangaroos finish their season with a well deserved win.

4th Q – Goal
29‘ – Waite will have the last kick of the game, and of his career, after the siren.

And doesn’t that sum up his career? He has hit the post.

Roos by 23.


St Kilda Saints : 94
North Melbourne : 117

St Kilda Saints vs North Melbourne Kangaroos: AFL highlights, live scores, blog

4th Q
28‘ – And this game slowly peeters out, neither side really applying themselves with much vigour.

It is a chance for Waite to soak up his last moments as a professional AFL player.

Someone just said he’s going out on top. They do realise his team is missing the finals, right?


St Kilda Saints : 94
North Melbourne : 116

4th Q – Goal
26‘ – Newnes will be another goal here for the Saints. Making the scoreline that bit more respectable.

Can they crack the ton the Saints?

4th Q – Behind
23‘ – Waite wants more, but he can’t kick true from the scrap.

St Kilda Saints : 88
North Melbourne : 116

St Kilda Saints vs North Melbourne Kangaroos: AFL highlights, live scores, blog

4th Q
22‘ – So it looks like North will finish a win and percentage out of the 8 this year.

Considering their start, what do we make of their year? Over- or under-achieve?


St Kilda Saints : 87
North Melbourne : 115

St Kilda Saints vs North Melbourne Kangaroos: AFL highlights, live scores, blog

4th Q – Goal
20‘ – And that is a wonderful moment.

Jarrad Waite is literally the only man within 60m of the goal square, and he gets the ball.

He strolls in, he bounces it once, and he softly kicks it through, and runs to the adoring crowd to soak in the adulation.

What a moment for the big man.

4th Q
19‘ – And as Ben Brown is taken down, it looks like he won’t be Coleman happy this year.

What do we make of Jack Reiwoldt taking out the title?


St Kilda Saints : 87
North Melbourne : 109

St Kilda Saints vs North Melbourne Kangaroos: AFL highlights, live scores, blog

4th Q
17‘ – Saints string a few passes together, find themselves on the attack.

Roos looking a little bit more attentive in defence now. Not letting the Saints have it easy.

Ball up, ruck appears, Saints break through Gresham, but Waite is in wait for the intercept mark.

North Melbourne : 109

St Kilda Saints vs North Melbourne Kangaroos: AFL highlights, live scores, blog

4th Q – Goal
15‘ – Goldstein in on the party, the ball comes to him in the left pocket, and he has all the time to line up a goal.

Now, the question is: what was he doing out there in the pocket on his own in the first place?

Roos by 22.


St Kilda Saints : 87
North Melbourne : 109

St Kilda Saints vs North Melbourne Kangaroos: AFL highlights, live scores, blog

4th Q – Goal
12‘ – And again: hard running, precise kicking, great lead by Membrey. He will line up for a goal from the left pocked.

He snaps, and makes it work.

Now, granted, that came from a woeful kick out of defence that the Roos didn’t punish, but again, great play from the Saints when they want to.

North Melbourne : 103

St Kilda Saints vs North Melbourne Kangaroos: AFL highlights, live scores, blog

4th Q – Goal
9‘ – Nice play from the Saints there, and they get a goal for their troubles through Jack Lonie.

Strong running, precise kicking, fine set shot to complete the play.

When Saints play well, it does look good.

Roos by 22.

St Kilda Saints: 81
North Melbourne: 103

4th Q – Goal
5‘ – Well, someone was bound to kick true eventually, and it’s Jarrad Waite, with a round house outside boot kick from the boundary.

Roos by 27.


St Kilda Saints : 75
North Melbourne : 102

St Kilda Saints vs North Melbourne Kangaroos: AFL highlights, live scores, blog

4th Q – Behind
4‘ – Saints with another point.

If their plan is to whittle down this lead one behind at a time, they need a new plan.

Roos by 21.


St Kilda Saints : 75
North Melbourne : 96

St Kilda Saints vs North Melbourne Kangaroos: AFL highlights, live scores, blog

4th Q – Behind
3‘ – And Roos almost go up the other end and immediately punish the Saints for their profligacy.

But the ball does not bounce true, instead hits the post.

Roos by 22.


St Kilda Saints : 74
North Melbourne : 96

St Kilda Saints vs North Melbourne Kangaroos: AFL highlights, live scores, blog

4th Q – Behind
2‘ – Saints applying some pressure, but not where it matters.

Can’t get the goal, just another point.

St Kilda Saints : 74
North Melbourne : 95

St Kilda Saints vs North Melbourne Kangaroos: AFL highlights, live scores, blog

4th Q – Behind
Rightio then, here we go, last half hour of footy for these two.

And it’s the Saints on the attack here. They get a behind for their hard efforts.

Roos by 22.

Three Quarter Time
He’s made it!

Or has he … was that touched? God help me I hate the score review …

What did the goal umpire call? Touched!
