I reckon the Pies are cooked and peaked around a month ago. The Blues will beat them on and Sunday and their season will be over with a whimper

their young players are starting to tire. Even young Daicos is well off the boil

Ginnivan out is big. 

Their best inside mid in Adams can’t get on the park. Should be back by finals they hope

they looked exhausted against the swans the ponies forgot their one trick

Ginnivan not ruled out. Will have a bit of mongrel in him if he plays this week.

One game to go and we could still play 5 different teams week 1 of finals. Sydney home or away, Cats, Tigers, Blues, Dogs

giants almost beat the dogs last week, whos to say they won’t beat Freo at home this week?

can’t remember ever having this many perms and combs possible  in the last round.

I like that we have TMac on the come back, and likely to be back for the finals. Often under rated as to his value and impact on our forward line. 

Gotta beat Lions, but with Tommy back we'll be ready to have a red hot tilt at September irrespective.

And... imagine the glory of winning it from 6th..!

Brave coach and FD to pull the trigger on TMac in first week of finals…

Not sure who would go out either.

My hope is that the sun rule is tweaked for finals and becomes just another sub.

anyone else getting 1987 vibes about this years final round.

so many permutations with the final games of the season deciding who’s the last final spot (glad we’re already in this time) remember it vividly hanging on for the result in Geelong to go our way

Another game, another litmus test.
Whatever happens after our run home taking on most of the top 8, the boys will be battle hardened for the finals like no others.

The Saints defence has actually been pretty decent the last 5 weeks. Only conceded 100 pts to Geelong and surely you think they score at least 70 at Marvel.

The 9 goal margin will be in the heads of the Swans and I actually think because it’s so large it’ll distract them.

Saints biggest loss this year at Marvel has been 41pts (to Freo) and have won most of their games at Marvel this year.

I’m pretty confident this won’t be a blow out.

True, but Sydney are very good and St Kilda are not very good.

I'm hoping St Kilda get up for Hannebery and Max King has a determination to kick straight which sees him bag 5.0 or something.

Remember, in the unlikely event of a Swans loss, we will host Collingwood, Fremantle or Brisbane (imagine that - each of Sydney, Fremantle and Collingwood lose and we get Brisbane again!).

We are 11-0 interstate

Swans lost to Suns and Lions at the SCG this year

I'm not bothered where we play

Further to your point:

We’ve beaten Sydney twice since 2001 at the MCG. Just TWICE.

That is quite frankly embarrassing over a 21 year period.

The pressure will be on us more at the G than at the SCG. 
It’s unequivocal now that our  preparation and execution for interstate games is second to none, dating back to August 2021.

On a positive note both Richmond and Bulldogs have interstate finals.  Probably:

Lions vs Tigers at the Gabba.

Freo vs Bulldogs at Optus

The Dogs should be blown off the park by any of the other 7 sides in the top 8.

Their win over us is the only time they've played well since Round 9.

Post-bye they beat Hawthorn twice, GWS twice, St Kilda and us.

But I fear they'll reset over the bye and Fremantle will do a Carlton and [censored] the bed.

On current form Brisbane will lose to Richmond.

Oh, ok. I will let Goodwin know.

Although, Geelong have lost prelims and GFs the last decade against teams lower on the ladder…

And anything can happen when big finals are played at our home ground and not theirs…

But no, you’re right, let’s just give up.

Pretty happy with my prediction.  Maybe look at things a bit more objectively next time.

I am objective as they come o_d, but I am never going to pontificate on any prognostication relating to the glorification of the evil that lives in Mordor (Geelong).

Happy trails friend.

Quite clearly the Blues were the A Team and the Whites were the possibles. Some interesting faces in the white Team h

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.

Williams yelling out to players to get their hands off hips during drills. Gus looks fine to me. Absolutely., first two mins of match sim and his kicking is exquisite on both sides. He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se
