Interesting 2 rounds ahead, I think Collingwood Need to win both games to make the 8. That draw is going to screw us. We had a sloppy few games in the middle of the season, but I think we are starting to build again with what looks like almost a full list available for selection for the last game. I don’t think we can beat Geelong or Richmond in the finals but I think we would be more competitive than the other few teams batting for a spot, GWS & Melbourne will get smoked in an elimination final & the Dogs rely too heavily on the midfield, backline is almost bottom 4. Not sure about the Saints.
I think It will be Geelong vs Richmond GF. From what I have seen of Chris Scott this year he is far and away the best coach strategically & it’s not even close

Unfortunately I need to agree with you on Scott.

For most of his coaching career I have found him very irritating, but he has his team extremely well organised.

The Dogs are interesting on paper they should win both of their next 2 against the Hawks and Freo. But it's been these types of games over the past couple years they tend to drop and it costs them. Freo are tricky to beat as well, strong defensively and don't give up too many scores. If the doggies win their next 2 they'll make it, good test of their consistency.

agree think the Dogs make it now. GWS should but they are hot garbage so who knows. Pies only need 1 win.

With Saints losing tonight and GWS to play both Melbourne and the Saints, the equation for the Pies is simple.

Win 1 more game and guaranteed finals.

Saints could have really done us a favour, tomorrow now decides top 4, I think if Tigers win the top 4 will be pretty secure and you could pencil in the teams just not the order.

Eagles or Tigers the most likely to finish 5th, I reckon they'd do a number on the 8th placed team in week 1 of finals.

Tigers lose tonight they will finish 5th. West Coast have North next week and won't lose that.

Correct, it's one or the other that now comes down to tonight, hence why I was really hoping Saints could do the job for us last night and just about have locked us in considering our final game is against the Crows.

Did the ol' ladder predictor this morning and I ended up with:

1. Port
2. Brisbane
3. Geelong
4. WCE
5. Richmond
6. Saints
7. Dogs
8. Pies

Basically assuming that the dogs win out it the last spot in the 8 comes down to Saints v Giants - I have the giants beating melbourne but losing in Round 18.

Did you have Port losing to Collingwood in the last round?

Did your ladder predictor have Richmond pantsing Geelong. It's becoming more and more likely we'll be repeating last years Qualifying Final playing the Lions at the Gabba. Hopefully with the same result too

I'm hoping Collingwood beat Port in the last round, so we can avoid that.

Can’t believe Sportsbet have the saints at $5.50 to miss the 8. They’ll have to beat the giants next week to make it and I’d have the giants as favourites myself. Money for jam.

There are other results that can go our way (dogs losing a game or Melbourne winning both games in close finishes) but yeah, 5.50 is huge value. We’re a pretty decent chance to miss. Very good insurance option for saints fans.
