  1. The conditions were perfect as the reigning VFL premiers played host to the Sydney Swans under sunny skies at Casey Fields and the Demons continued their perfect start to the season with a comprehensive 41-point victory on Sunday. On a day when the winds eluded the vicinity of the ground, Casey were quick out of the blocks with the opening two goals of the game but Sydney fought back and were more than competitive for most of the opening term. They kicked three quick goals to take a seven point lead as time on ticked by before a couple of late goals gave the home team a six point lead at the break. From then on however, it was a dominant Casey which took complete control of proceedings. They were untroubled as they squeezed the life out of the visitors who were allowed just two late goals in junk time after a barren hour of goalless toil. It was a satisfying victory for new Casey coach Taylor Whitford because his team this week was a far cry from the experienced combination that his predecessor took the club to a premiership in 2022. With veteran skipper Mitch White still out with injury and the number of AFL listed players available down to eleven, expectations before the start were tempered. Only four of the Melbourne aligned players had any AFL experience. One of the four, Bailey Laurie, has only one AFL game under his belt and he was out of this game in the second half. The pleasing side of the equation was the outstanding efforts of the team’s youth. Newly recruited forwards Matt Jefferson (4 goals) and Oliver Sestan (2) were impressive with their ability to score goals themselves as well as assist others while utility Blake Howes had his biggest afternoon yet, playing all over the ground amassing 33 disposals and taking 16 marks. Andy Moniz-Wakefield and Deakyn Smith continue to impress and rookie defender Kye Turner had some promising moments. The young brigade was not limited to the AFL youngsters. The likes of Max Gregory, Miles Shepherd and Tom Sheridan (two goals on debut) contributed to the overall effort. Casey was well served by its experienced players. Adam Tomlinson (33 disposals 13 marks) was rock solid in defence while Tom McDonald (20 touches, 11 marks and 2 goals) did his chances of a quick return to the AFL no harm and Luke Dunstan was also prolific in the middle. He was capably assisted by evergreen Jimmy Munro who was his hard tackling mean self. George Grey was busy all day and Matt Buntine was solid in defence. The Demons remain undefeated at this early stage of the season and play host to Frankston in the local derby next Sunday afternoon. Here’s hoping for another perfect afternoon.

  2. The slippery surface of the MCG was a minor detail for the Casey Demons as they waltzed away from the Sydney Swans to record their tenth win on end in their Saturday afternoon curtain raiser. The Demons conceded the first goal of the game before recording the next three (two to Sam Weideman) to hold a 16 point lead at the first break before the Swans pegged that back to a mere three points at half time. Casey dominated the third term with four goals to nil and thereafter the Swans’ resistance dropped off with the Demons home in a canter to win by 39-points. Weideman is proving enigmatic. In between his six goals a few weeks ago against North Melbourne VFL and yesterday’s three-goal and 10-mark performance, he failed to have any impact at AFL level against Fremantle and yet Ben Brown’s poor form and the doubt on Tom McDonald’s ankle mandates that he be given another chance at the higher level. That would also be a consideration for Jacob Van Rooyen but he failed to trouble the scorers on his return from illness. Yet he used his body well and provided Majak Daw with a chop out in ruck duels. And of course, who ever heard of selecting a blond rookie key forward to play Collingwood on Queens Birthday? One player who would be a certainty to play against the Magpies is Trent Rivers (25 disposals, six marks) who was strong in defence all day. Both Oskar Baker and Luke Dunstan picked up 24 touches. Kade Chandler, Jake Melksham and Michael Hibberd were handy. Daniel Turner underlined his improvement - he is marking strongly and learning to ply the backman’s trade. Of the Casey listed players George Grey showed some touches of brilliance and kicked three goals. Jimmy Munro (23 disposals, 10 clearances) and defender Corey Ellison also continued his recent strong form of late.
