Let’s hear your thoughts!

Worst case scenario coming into finals was facing Geelong.

They've made us their bunny for a long time,
They have failed in finals now for several years and are extremely motivated not to fail again (3 losing PF's in last 4 Seasons)
They absolutely hammered us last time we played.


But hey, the positives are that we cop them at home and not away, plus their recent form has trailed off and maybe the scary mid season form was a case of peaking too early, while we appear to be building.


Honestly if I was to tip, everything in me says that Geelong are better than us and should win, but fu** it lets give it a red hot crack and see if we can deliver. Opportunities to host a home QF don't come around that often, so lets dare to dream.

Crowd's going to be up for this one, going to be an amazing atmosphere, lets hope the boys are too, because if they are AO will rock like it hasn't in a long while.

The way I see it, we beat them all good. We don’t and we drop the non performers.

A lot has been said about nullifying Hawkins. I reckon Dangerfield is the one to blanket. That's going to be easier because we're much more composed in midfield than we were when we last met. Didn't we keep Hawkins goalless in the game last year?

Anyway Ports by 20, for no logical reason whatsoever - I just saw the song after last night and these blokes look ready to die for each other 👍.

I agree with this. We’ve pretty much given ourself the hardest run to the GF possible by finishing top. If we lose to Geelong yet again, the boys will be down on themselves and will have to back it up by facing a West Coast side who have given us nightmares in recent times the very next week.

If we can finally beat the Cats when it matters though, everything opens up and we possibly have Brisbane at home in a prelim should they lose to Richmond first up.

Biggest PA game since the 07 Grand Final next week. I’ll truly believe in this side again if we can get the job done.
