CASEY: Grand Final vs Southport


WERRIDEE
 Share


Recommended Posts

Now for the big dance Casey who have only lost 1 game for the year and beat Brisbane by 51 points will face off with Southport who beat Gold Coast by 28 points at Ikon Park at 2:30 pm. It should be a cracker with Casey being raging hot favorites. Looking forward to the T.Mac\Roo show. I'm predicting Casey to win by 35 points.

Possible team

B: D.Smith, Turner, McVee

HB: Baker, Tomlinson, Joel.Smith

C: Howes, Dunstan, Woewodin

HF: Melksham, van Rooyen, Chandler

F: Bedford, McDonald, M.Brown

FOLL: Weideman, White, Munro

IC: Laurie, Moniz-Wakefield, Ellison, Buntine, Valentine

Can anyone confirm which Melbourne players are eligible, McDonald and Smith in particular.

I thought I read somewhere that Tom wouldn't be eligible if Melbourne were eliminated - could be wrong.

I believe they are both good to play.

My understanding is that because Joel Smith didn't play in a home and away AFL game after 1 July, he doesn't need to have played 6 VFL games.

Tom is also good to go...he didn't play an AFL game after 1 July, so similar applies.

My understanding is bowey can't play as he played more than 12 AFL games.

Rules are poorly written plus I stand to be corrected.

Really great opportunity for some of the young Casey lads and some vets like Munro and White.  Our key forwards are our strong point with Tmcd, JVR and Brown being good marking targets. That’s our strength.  Loss of Bowey hurts as he was very very good. It’s important that guys in the middle stand up - Dunstan, Munro, White to win the contested footy.  Baker, Bedford, Chandler, Steele and Grey to provide the run.  

Southport won’t be easybeats. They’ve got a fast midfield.  They fly under the radar. They should have won by 10+ goals if they converted (39 scoring shots to 16). Crossley in the ruck is a man mountain and Weid will find out how physical ruckwork can be.  Lockhart also was very good. He’s strong at the footy. Zac Foot is a ball of muscle, good ball user and skilled. Loves a goal.  I’d have him on our MFC list.  Jacob Townsend was quiet yesterday but has been a key goal scorer. They have energy and aggression.  They’ve got plenty of ex AFL players who didn’t make the grade and $$$ to offer from their strong Sharks leagues club. Woodcock is fast and has goalsense.  Glad it’s played here in Vic and at Southport where I believe they are unbeaten this year.

By my reading Neitas Great Aunt may be eligible; bit of a worry for everyone else.

Rules were written by a 'spaghetti coder' from the 70's

Sorry, I keep my eyes firmly focussed on the Casey team and ignore most of the other VFL results, so who the hell are the Southport Sharks? My quick research suggests they aren't aligned to anyone. Would they be the next team to come in from QLD otherwise why do they even play in a Victorian league.

Biggest club in the gold coast. Arguably should have been the AFL franchise not a new club in the suns. Southport is a massive sport and recreation club biggest on the gold coast including any rugby clubs

Thanks BM. Why are they playing in a Vic league if they aren't part of some sort of future strategy? Not expecting you to know the answer to this. There are a bunch of big clubs around WA and SA that also aren't Victorian as well. Odd. Winning the VICTORIAN FL by beating Southport isn't the same as beating Box Hill hawks for example. Its hard to get excited

Only if they merged with GCS.

Pokie money keeps them going

Aspley (suburb of Brisbane) was also supposed to join but couldn't afford it. Why are they in the VFL...why not..it's a weird competition

I'm not so over the detail but from what I understand. The NEAFL which used to feature Qld and NSW teams including suns, Swans, Brisbane was pretty below par standard. So they admitted them to the VFL along with the Sharks who have a high standard senior team

Keen to pop down and check out the Tmac/JvR partnership.  Feel sorry for Rosman having to miss with concussion protocols. 

Yeah that was really sad for Rosman, he's had a pretty solid season.
Casey have been the silver lining in the last 3 months of a sliding season. 
I'm really pumped to see our team succeed, especially for a couple of the older leaders such as Munro and White.
TMAC and JVR are great to watch together in the forward line.

We've been a great cohesive team at VFL level as compared to the frustration of watching games slide in the seniors and opportunities getting wasted in our forward line.

Moved forward just in case things might go over and we miss 5 minutes of , WAGs on a rotisserie at the Brownlow . 

God forbid we don’t see every single plunging neckline. 

The starting time change still doesn’t help for those who’d like to attend both this final as well as the our AFLW round 4 match which is scheduled for 4:10pm at Casey Fields. ☹️ Our cheer squad has to split into two which is a shame.

    EYES ON RED & BLUE by Wilma from West Perth

    It was a great weekend for the Red and the Blue on this side of the Nullarbor.   On Saturday, West Perth bested Claremont by two goals after leading all day with the exception of a few early minutes to take out the WAFL Premiership and on Sunday, Melbourne scored a five goal win over Fremantle with a stunning four goals to zip in the final term.   Again, it was the red and the blue leading nearly all day to record their fifth win from six games.   The ou

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES by The Oracle

    Part One - ZERO HOUR, 9AM The AFL Trade Period begins in earnest at 9.00am amid the announcement of a bombshell by North Melbourne’s 2021 Number 1 draft pick Jason Horne-Francis that he wants to leave the club and return to his home state to play for Port Adelaide.  The Herald Sun is reporting that “Horne-Francis will cite the instability at North Melbourne this year in his first season“ along with a likely continuation of chaos as a result of the uncertainty surrounding coach Alastair

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid
