The Bombers improved their record to 3-2 with a big win against rivals Collingwood in the traditional Anzac Day game, leading from start to finish to defeat the Magpies by 18 points at the MCG.
Essendon went into the final change with a nine-point lead but the Bombers virtually killed the contest when they kicked three unanswered goals in the opening nine minutes to take a 26-point lead.
Joe Daniher was outstanding for the Bombers and the forward took out the Anzac Day Medal as best afield. Daniher kicked 3.4 from 16 possessions, and also had three goal assists, eight marks and a team-high six inside 50s. Zach Merrett, Dyson Heppell and Jobe Watson were all busy around the contests all day.
Melbourne gave up a 20-point three quarter time lead as the Richmond Tigers roared home to a 13-point win at the MCG on Anzac Day eve. Star forward and two-time Coleman medalist Jack Riewoldt was a match winner, kicking six goals to star in the game.
The Dees had control of the game until three quarter time but could never turn that into a big enough lead to completely block out Richmond’s hopes. Richmond kicked 5.5 to 0.2 in the final quarter to take out the win. Michael Hibberd was prolific on his debut for the Demons with 27 possessions across half-back as well as a goal. Clayton Oliver was also in the Demons bests.
