I just drove four hours to get back home just in time to watch the game. Hoping there's a bumper crowd. 2-1 Victory final score line imo

We should be fine, As long as we play our normal solid game and not give away anything stupid.

Our terrace looks chockers, but wings look pretty empty. Still 10 minutes to go but I think it's a reflection of the state of the league right now.

I just hope we don't sit back like we had a tendency to do for a while whenever we went a goal up. We need to play like it's a new game and 0-0.

We used to pack out Docklands for finals. I know there are extenuating circumstances like federal election day, probably a bit of trepidation about large crowds still with covid lingering, and it's actually pretty chilly today, but I think it's evidence that the league simply can't run up against AFL still.

I know a lot of people want a full winter calendar but I am against it for this reason.

Our defence not looking great at the moment.

Folami fills like the biggest hot or cold player we have.

If players start to milk these "head knocks" they're going to end up compromising the team
