AFL Round 3 Results

Round 3 of the AFL 2011 season started on Friday April 8th, with reigning premiers Collingwood stamping their domination on this years competition defeating in form Carlton by 28 points.

Essendon under rookie coach James Heard was too good for St Kilda; who seem to be suffering from 'Grand Final hangover', and perhaps Ross Lyon should look at shedding last years non performers and rebuild the list with younger more enthusiastic players. The Gold Coast Suns lost their second match by 71 points at the hands of Western Bulldogs, and proves in football a 'champion team' will beat a 'team of champions'.



The winners were: Collingwood, Western Bulldogs, Freemantle, Hawthorn, Sydney Swans, Melbourne, Geelong Cats, and Essendon, with North Melbourne having a bye.
