The Finals ...

Port vs Collingwood
Brisbane vs Adelaide
Essendon vs West Coast
Melbourne vs Kangaroos

Let the games begin!

I like our chances up in Brisbane at night ...

If Goodwin and Welsh get up we'll be that much stronger, but I think we may be good enough anyway.

Port should've blown the Lions away yesterday and Brisbane did amazingly well to come back. But the mental and physical petrol the Lions spent over-taking the Power only to be beaten in the last minute might be too much - in contrast the Crows never got out of third gear in giving it to Freo.

Should be a great game - if it were in daylight I'd say Brisbane, but at night ...

Collingwood went down to Port in Adelaide earlier this year by only a goal or two, so I would say they are a chance to cause an upset, but hard to back against Port.

Brisbane easily the best side in the competition, they don't care about what happened yesterday, they will bounce back and scrape past Adelaide who will fight hard.

Essendon and West Coast, both teams on a high after good wins this weekend, but considering the Eagles away record, a Bombers will seems likely, but don't count out an Eagles upset.

Melbourne to scrape past Kangaroos in a match decided by 1 or 2 goals with Neitz bagging a few and the Kangas key players back.

Was King Italy..

I dont like Adelaides chances !!

One thing I noticed about Brisbane is ,they seem to be getting right to the top of there game now & I beleive they are good things , dont worry about Port Adelaide beating them , Port used a serious amount of petrol vouchers doing that !!!

I just put $25 on Adelaide to beat Brisbane & Essendon to beat West Coast at $4.80 ...

I have a feeling ...

Now that I've said that we'll win by 130 points and the Bombers will get touched up by the weagles

It gets worse ...

I put a tenner on the Pies to beat Port by 1-39pts at $6.15 ...

I don't believe it will happen like I do with my Brizzy/Bombers bet but if it comes in I've got $61.50 in the skyrocket. If it doesn't, pffft ... what's new?!
