The AFL Round 5 wrap by Andy Morris.
The Sydney Swans cruised to the top of the AFL ladder, dispatching the West Coast Eagles with ease.
Led by six goals from Daniel Bradshaw, the Swans heaped the pressure on the Eagles - who remain on only one win - easing to a 17.13 (115) to 9.9 (63) victory. The 52-point win means the Swans stretch to a 4-1 start to the 2010 season.
The Brisbane Lions slumped to their first loss of the season as Melbourne rolled onto their third consecutive win, posting a comprehensive 50 point margin,15.13 (103) to 7.11 (53).
The ever-improving Demons created a string of scoring opportunities, leading from start to finish, as the Lions were brushed aside.
Adelaide's search for its first win continues after the Crows slipped to their fifth-straight defeat at the hands of the Western Bulldogs.
After kicking the opening three goals, the Crows soon faltered as the Bulldogs raced to a second half lead, launching a flurry of goals to leave the struggling Crows on the end of a 49-point loss, 18.13 (121) to 10.12 (72).
Port Adelaide ended St. Kilda's unbeaten run, as the Power edged to a 10-point victory in a low scoring game.
The Saints were unable to match their recent performances as the Power dominated from the open of play, but wasteful in front of goal, having to settle for a 7.12 (54) to 6.8 (44) scoreline.
Fremantle were another side wayward in front of goal as they stumbled to a 39-point victory against Richmond.
The Dockers produced a total of 37 shots to the Tigers 18, but could only manage a 15.22 (112) to 11.7 (73) score.
Collingwood ran out easy winners in the Anzac Day Clash, smashing Essendon by 65-points.
The Magpies were in blistering form, booting seven goals in defeating the Dons, 18.12 (120) to 8.7 (55).
North Melbourne defeated Hawthorn by 12-points, in a result that sees the Kangaroos leapfrog the Hawks in the Premiership ladder.
Both sides had chances to win the game, but it was the Kangaroos who edged out on top when Brady Rawlings latched onto a mark to score late in the final-term, restoring the Kangaroos' lead, before Aaron Edwards sealed victory, kicking a goal from a free kick 30 metres out from the sticks.
The shock result of the round came as Carlton defeated Geelong 15.14 (104) to 9.14 (68).
The Cats could find no answer as the Blues outplayed them for much of the contest and were deserved winners at the siren.
