The Magpies are the real deal – once again – this season, a 38-point win over the Demons confirming their back-to-back premiership hopes are alive. For the Demons, they have lost four of their past five games, and with only six goals on the board today, Simon Goodwin and his team have major worries. And, just to think, the Magpies have several premierships stars to return after the bye, including Jordan De Goey and Scott Pendlebury.

Jack Crisp was named best afield today, and is awarded the Neale Daniher Trophy.
