There were no 100 point plus thrashings in this round . The Geelong / Brisbane margin of 42 points was the equal highest for round 5 with the Western Bulldogs win over the Giants. Surprisingly it was Sydney's 37 point beating of Hawthorn that was the next highest margin of the round! In my opinion Hawthorn had a lot of their confidence knocked out of them when Geelong came from behind and beat them. Some highlights of round 5 included Brisbane's Simon Black playing his 300th game and Adam Goodes breaking O’Loughlin’s game record for the Sydney Swans. And speaking of Sydney aren't they travelling along very nicely with 5 wins and no losses? Will they fade as the season progresses?
