In a decisive victory, Collingwood defeated Geelong, solidifying their top two positioning and earning a coveted home qualifying final. Essendon kept their finals dream alive with a hard-fought win over North Melbourne, a bittersweet farewell game for the revered Ben Cunnington.

Sydney’s continued form saw them charge past the Suns, making a determined push towards the top eight, while Brisbane’s triumph over Adelaide was marred by losing Jack Gunston to a knee injury.

However, the game stealing headlines was the Blues’ electrifying win over the Demons, a result marked by a controversial score review that will be dissected and debated all week. Blues coach Michael Voss’s post-match words captured the essence of a team finding resilience and adaptability, with special attention to Caleb Marchbank’s lucky fingertip decision.
