DVD OF GEELONG'S DEVASTATING WIN OVER RICHMOND RELEASED;
CATS THRASH TIGERS
By Ben Jensen A DVD of Geelong's record win over Richmond is now available (see link on right). Postage varies but starts at $7. MEANWHILE Paul Chapman, star of the first half with four goals before leaving the field with a hamstring injury, will miss up to two matches with a confirmed hamstring tear.
Geelong's score of 222 points (35 goals, 12 behinds) is the ninth highest all time score. Geelong holds the AFL/VFL record, with 37.17 (239) against the then Robert Walls coached Brisbane Bears in round 7 1992. It is the first time any team has scored more than 200 points since 1995 (some would say it is the highest score this century).
FOUR players kicked four goals (Paul Chapman, Nathan Ablett, Tom Hawkins and back pocket Andrew Mackie), and three players three (Travis Varcoe, Gary Ablett and Cameron Ling. Seven other goalkickers kicked two or less, a total of fifteen in all. Hawkins' first three goals all came in the third quarter after spending much of the first half on the bench; the fourth was the icing on the cake.
