Go back 3 seasons and these two played in a semi final for the ages.
In that season the Eagles rose up the ladder after a bottom 4 finish the year before. The Blues floated around the top 4 all year but were crippled with injuries towards the latter end of the season and exited the finals race...
Seriously tough draw for the Blues going into the 2nd half of the season..
1 Guaranteed win in my view.
A lot of 50/50 games which they must win in order to make the 8
Hawks - Loss
Swans - Loss
Pies - 50/50

Take note of the sound of the flare going off as the ball...

He's well connected in the media & I would imagine he'd be a pretty good networker.
He's a passionate blues man & could use his position in the media similar to McGuire & Brayshaw to...
Michael Hurley vs Lockie Henderson?
Who do you rate out of these two future superstars of the competition?
