Young Crows forward Darcy Fogarty (10 touches, one mark, no goals) had a quiet afternoon, but he wasn't alone as Adelaide was hammered by South Adelaide.

State league affiliate: Northern Blues (VFL)
This weekend: Richmond v Northern Blues - Sunday, June 17, 12pm, Swinburne Centre

Matthew Kennedy is likely to come under strong consideration for Carlton's round 13 clash with Collingwood next Sunday, following a big game for the Northern Blues. 

Kennedy, whose first season at Ikon Park has been cruelled by injury, amassed 27 disposals, had 10 clearances and kicked a goal in his return from an ankle issue.

Tom De Koning provided a target on the forward, the first-year Blue finishing with 14 disposals and seven marks.

Alex Silvagni's return from injury didn't go to the plan, the defender going off before half-time and not returning.

Cameron O'Shea was also injured and missed the second half, but Jarrod Pickett, who was playing his first game since fracturing his scaphoid in the JLT Community Series, got through unscathed.

Ruckman Andrew Phillips had 34 hit-outs and 11 possessions.

Harry McKay was ill and did not play.

State league affiliate: Peel Thunder (WAFL)
This weekend: South Fremantle v Peel Thunder - Saturday, June 16, 2.15pm, Fremantle Community Bank Oval

Harley Bennell again failed to get through a match unscathed, the injury-prone midfielder inconvenienced by his troublesome calves in Peel's 35-point loss.

Bennell picked up 14 touches, before appearing to hurt his right wrist late in the second quarter.

The 25-year-old returned after half-time, but again left the field early in the third quarter.

Bennell sat out the remainder of the game and had both calves worked on.

Taylin Duman's day came to a premature end when he was left concussed from a heavy hit in a marking contest in the second term.

In his first game back after two months out because of a knee injury, ruckman Sean Darcy had 41 hit-outs and kicked a goal. 

Playing down back, Cam McCarthy earned 17 possessions and took 11 marks.

Cameron Sutcliffe was busy with 19 touches, while Mitchell Crowden had 16 and laid 11 tackles.

NEW WAYS TO SAY 'INELIGIBLE' Six things we learned from round 13

State league affiliate: Geelong (VFL)
This weekend: Port Melbourne v Geelong - Saturday, June 16, 2.10pm, Williamstown Football Ground

Harry Taylor returned for his first VFL match in 3,632 days and kicked his first goal at the level. He played between defence and attack in the Cats' 14-point win and took seven marks before his time was managed late in the game.

Lachie Henderson spent time in defence and on a wing, his second game back along with Scott Selwood (21 disposals) and Cam Guthrie (24). 

Charlie Constable racked up plenty of the ball in his first game back since he was concussed on Mother's Day, undergoing a heavy training load in the past month to make up what he missed in a limited pre-season. 

Human wrecking ball Quinton Narkle showed touches of class with three goals in a commanding performance. After returning in recent weeks after an ACL last year, he continues to put his name up in lights. 


Ruckman Ryan Abbott covered the ground well and gave Chris Scott a reminder of his credentials. 

James Parsons and Jamaine Jones didn't play as the Cats' carryover emergencies for Sunday's AFL clash with Richmond.

State league affiliate: Gold Coast (NEAFL)
This weekend: Gold Coast v Sydney - Saturday, June 16, 11.30am, Metricon Stadium

There weren't many highlights for the Suns as they went down to the Swans by 67 points, with Peter Wright booting two goals as their only multiple goal-kicker.

Wright also had 22 disposals and took eight marks.

Big-bodied midfielder Will Brodie was their leading possession-winner with 28 and Brad Scheer laid seven tackles after being omitted this week, while Max Spencer picked up 19 touches and took five marks.

James Cousins was outstanding for the Hawks in their big win over Frankston.

The 20-year-old rookie, who has played four games for Hawthorn this season, gathered 35 disposals and kicked two goals. 

Kieran Lovell, who has played just two senior games since being drafted in 2015, amassed 31 touches.

Teia Miles (27 possessions and a goal) and David Mirra were handy, while Tim O'Brien and Jackson Ross both kicked two goals.

Dumped high-profile recruit Jack Watts may be in line to face his former side Melbourne next week after he turned in a strong performance for the Magpies.

Watts kicked three goals, won 17 disposals and took eight marks in Port's close win over Sturt.

Fellow former Demon Jack Trengove was outstanding for the Magpies, collecting 27 touches, kicking two goals and taking 13 marks. 

Dom Barry (27 possessions) and Karl Amon (25) were also solid contributors.

FINE WINES Port star a huge Fantasy hit

State league affiliate: Richmond (VFL)
This weekend: Richmond v Northern Blues - Sunday, June 17, 12pm, Swinburne Centre

Dynamic key forward Rookie Callum Moore bagged five goals in horrendous conditions at the Swinburne Centre, including one from the top drawer, as the Tigers won comfortably.

Rookie Moore, who was back after three games at AFL level, kicked three goals in the third term to break the game open.

On-baller Corey Ellis finished with two goals and 26 touches, Connor Menadue found the footy on 27 occasions and had nine clearances, and Shai Bolton (20 possessions) also impressed.

State league affiliate: Sandringham (VFL)
This weekend: Williamstown v Sandringham - Sunday, June 17, 2.10pm, Williamstown Football Ground

Sam Gilbert and Tom Hickey won plenty of the ball in trying conditions, but it was a sorry afternoon for Sandringham, with the Zebras kept goalless for the first time in their history. 

Saints veteran Gilbert had 26 disposals, while big man Hickey gathered 25.

Brandon White and Jack Lonie both won 17 possessions.

State league affiliate: Sydney (NEAFL)
This weekend: Gold Coast v Sydney - Saturday, June 16, 11.30am, Metricon Stadium

The Swans didn't struggle against the Suns with James Rose kicking 3.3 and Darcy Cameron 3.2 to help them power to a 67-point win at Metricon Stadium.

Cameron also took 12 marks while Daniel Robinson was the game's leading disposal winner with 37, from Colin O'Riordan (33) and Nic Newman (31).

O'Riordan's performance follows on from the promising showing he gave last week against Redland, where he collected 31 possessions.

While the Swans' AFL team is currently tough to break into, Robbie Fox got his hand to the ball 28 times after last playing at the level in round seven.

State league affiliate: East Perth (WAFL)
This weekend: East Perth v Subiaco - Saturday, June 16, 2.15pm, Leederville Oval

Luke Partington (22 disposals), Brendon Ah Chee (22) and Brayden Ainsworth (20 and a goal) were all busy for the Royals in their 18-point loss.

Experienced backman Will Schofield was solid in defence, restricting the WAFL's equal leading goalkicker Brad Stevenson to just the one major.

Playing his fourth game back after missing much of the season with a groin issue, ruckman Nathan Vardy had 29 hit-outs and took four marks.

State league affiliate: Footscray (VFL)
This weekend: Coburg v Footscray - Saturday, June 16, 2pm, Piranha Park 

It was a 10-point win for Footscray over Coburg and Lin Jong (20 disposals) pressed his claim for a recall as one of their best. 

Fergus Greene was also impressive with two goals while Josh Dunkley was prolific.

Dumped ruckman Jordan Roughead had 31 hit-outs, as did Tom Campbell. Roughead also had 13 disposals after being omitted this week.

Marcus Adams got through in his first VFL hit-out for a month for 11 touches and a goal while playing managed minutes.
