Round 4 AFL Fixture Looks to be Nap Lovers’ Dream

  • Posted By:

Round 4 of the Toyota 2018 AFL Premiership competition bounces tomorrow night when the Adelaide Crows host the Collingwood Magpies.

The next game of the Round 4 fixture will be the Greater Western Sydney Giants vs the Fremantle Dockers at the UNSW Canberra Oval.

Then comes the Richmond Tigers vs the Brisbane Lions at Melbourne Cricket Ground. Maybe the Lions should change their names to the Christians and request that the AFL move the game to the Coliseum in Rome, as the carnage should be about the same, although the Lions did show remarkable promise in giving Port a scare in Round 3.

Etihad Stadium will be the site for the next match in the lineup, with the Western Bulldogs hosting the Sydney Swans.

Saturday evening will offer a double header, allowing for the time zones. The North Melbourne Kangaroos will play the Carlton Blues at Blundstone Arena, while the Battle of the Coasts will take place at Optus Stadium in Perth between the West Coast Eagles and the Gold Coast Suns.

Sunday will complete the lineup, with the Essendon Bombers hosting the Port Adelaide Power at Etihad Stadium, followed by the Hawthorn Hawks vs the Melbourne Demons at MCG and the Geelong Cats vs the St. Kilda Saints at GMHBA Stadium.

The AFL should be commended for giving us the opportunity to take in about 48 hours’ worth of footy, but none of the Round 4 games seems particularly appealing.

If we had to pick just one to watch, it would have to be the Eagles vs the Suns, as both sides have gotten off to decent starts in 2018, especially the Suns.

The other reason to watch the match at Optus Stadium, for those with a morbid sense of curiosity, those who watch motor racing for the crashes, is to see if anyone will be cut by the sharp LED advertising boundaries of the new stadium.
