As their coach said to them before the game: “We’re going into this grand final with just one goal in mind!”SANFL team North Adelaide has twice kicked 1.8-14 against Port Adelaide in a Grand Final, 75 years apart in 1914 and 1989.
Not surprisingly, the Magpies thrashed the Roosters in both premiership deciders - by 79-points in 1914 and by 94-points in 1989.
Are they really amazing coincidences though? Pretty common.West Coast and St Kilda both had 20 scoring shots. North and West Coast with 14 scoring shots each. Both games were 15 point wins
Ben Cousins won the 2005 Brownlow, Eagles runners-up, Swans premiers
Adam Goodes won the 2006 Brownlow, Swans runners-up, Eagles premiers
and now geelong could play WCE again like in the 2nd week of the finals a year ago. Or, Geelong play Collingwood like in 2019.2004 Port finish top, Brisbane 2nd and Geelong 4th and Port play Geelong week 1 of the finals.
Port will like the omens. Smashed us in week 1 and went on to win the flag against Brisbane. I'm hoping for a repeat of 2007 however.
