Preliminary Final, 2021 Optus Stadium - Demons vs Cats
That was some win fellow minions but a big day looms. Time to knuckle down and finish the job.
Our fourth best top 6 (ranked players) score for the season. But take note!! Our worst top 6 score for the season was against the Doggies in Rnd 19 scoring a lowly 21.73! We'll need to be at our best or near it to beat this mob. To give some idea of where that sits, when we beat them earlier in Rnd 11 our top six posted a weighted score of 27.03 In that match our bottom 6 only scored a lowly 7.63 vs the losing match in Rnd 19...a VG result 9.43
Rnd 19 was also our worst team score for the season at 55.03 However we also only scored a 58.0 when we beat them in Rnd 11 so we don't necessarily have to improve out of sight to win. Stating the obvious but we are going to need the cream to really hold their form.
Our conversion rate of 63.0% our 3rd best for the year behind Rnd 7 vs the Kangas (69.6%) and Rnd 22 vs the Crows (66.7%).
Maxy's adjusted score should be roughly 4.625 allowing for hit outs to advantage placing him just below Salem (statistically) on the night. What a match from the big fella though. His overall impact on the day was immense and cannot be accounted for here.
Two down one to go. Carn the Mighty Demons!
