At 7:50pm last Friday night, the Geelong jumper in the goal square had #35 on the back – Patrick Dangerfield was full forward. He had 2 goals in the first 10mins of the game and added another 2 before halftime along with 2 out-of-bounds attempts. At this point the white flag was waved, yet another tip wrong, time to settle in at the Stumps Tavern.
The finals have delivered some exciting and at times unpredictable results, John Longmire’s men appeared to “run out of steam” in their second final against Geelong after overcoming a huge 0-6 deficit at the beginning start their 2017 campaign. Up at Spotless Stadium, GWS seemed to make light work of the travelling Eagles; however, this week presents a contrasting challenge as they take on 22 fierce players and (a predicted) 90,000 raucous fans in the late afternoon at the MCG. We expect a close encounter in Adelaide on Friday night however the crows should have the ascendancy over the cats despite the inclusion of Tom Lonergan (Geelong) who missed last week’s clash against Sydney after consuming a suspect sausage roll and suffering food poisoning.
