What is everyones thoughts on who will make it to GF?


Personally i feel Melbourne and Port are gonna the final two standing.

Dont reckon Geelong have as much to play for as a team like Melbourne to go for it anymore, but they could prove me wrong?

Not sure on the Bulldogs but with the Bont being injured last week, i think they might try a different approach to what they have this season and that could make or break them?

Going to be a good game. I think May and Lever win it for the Dees. Midfield pressure from the Dees forces quick kicks that get intercepted. As much as I think Cameron and Hawkins are the clear best #1/2 KPF combo going around I just don't think it will matter if Dees win the mid battle. Danger to wear a Harmes shaped glove all night.

Hard to split Dees vs Cats but leaning towards the Dees.. they seem to be the real deal this year and have the edge in both midfield and defence. Main question is can they score enough, but I think so.

Was leaning towards the dogs but Keath out, Bont questionable, Weightman out.. underdone Martin.. I think Port get home. Their midfield has been solid all year and their defence is elite.. I just think Port have too many weapons up forward for a defence missing Keath and the dogs probably don't have enough weapons now to kick a winning score against the Port backline.

Dees by 9
Port by 20

The AFL should have had some clarification on the dogs not being allowed to train and then either have the game moved to WA or not allow port to train either and have them subject to the same conditions. The dogs have had 14 covid tests, out of vic for weeks. Its dead set embarrassing.

I still don't understand why they weren't allowed to go straight to SA. The politics of COVID combined with the ineptitude of the AFL is the ultimate clusterf**k
