THE BREAK­DOWN

THE AFL’ S LEAD­ING GOAL-KICKER HON­OURS SEEMED OUT OF REACH… AND THEN THE SYD­NEY SWANS’ SU­PER­STAR WENT OUT IN THE LAST ROUND AND PUT TEN ON CARL­TON.

Buddy’s dom­i­nance wasn’t only re­flected on the score­board – he dom­i­nated around the ground, grab­bing ten marks and lead­ing in me­tres gained.

Kennedy, the AFL’s lead­ing goal-kicker the last two years, could only man­age one the next day for the Ea­gles.

Franklin kicked his first goal five min­utes in, and had three for the first half.

With 69 goals on the sea­son, Franklin had his fourth Cole­man Medal ... Only three play­ers have more.

When he landed a snap from 30m out late in the fourth, he had ten. He missed a shot just be­fore the siren for 11.

Buddy Franklin was five be­hind West Coast’s Josh Kennedy in the goal­kick­ing tally as he started the Swans’ las­tround match against Carl­ton.
