AFL Round 1 Results.

The AFL 2011 season started with plenty of action and already there were a couple of surprising results in round 1.

Collingwood looked in great form, easily accounting for Port Adelaide, and Essendon had no trouble defeating Western Bulldogs under new coach James Heard; and could be the dark horse for the flag if they can replicate that effort each week.

The winners were Carlton, Geelong Cats, Collingwood, Freemantle, Adelaide, Essendon, Melbourne and West Coast Eagles, with new arrivals to the competition the Gold Coast Suns having a bye.
