It looks like we will finish on top of ladder with Port second Brisbane third and Melbourne 4th.

It feels like (even though a great team) whoever plays Brisbane due to travel reasons has a better advantage.

If we play Melbourne there is zero home ground advantage.

Thoughts?

If we finish 9th we don’t need to play any of them.

We will finish 1st and play at our favoured MCG ground for finals.
Perfect result 👌

Surely you’d prefer the home state advantage in the PF followed by a possibility of the same again in the GF. Finishing as minor premier opens that opportunity.

# based on todays ladder. Melbourne have a dream run home so every chance to move to third.

Would be interesting if Melbourne coming into their last game could only finish 3rd if they win or 4th if they lose, is it possible they would let Sydney beat them so they can stay in Melbourne week 1.

Finishing second might also take some of the expectations away . We all know we're the best side in it

You would think so. You'd surely manage players and even sub consciously it would be tough to get up for. Think it's close to certain we'll play the Dees. That's fine.

^^I think they'd have to lose 3 or 4 though. Is there any incentive for Dees to climb to 3rd in the last round if we're first?
