I expect it will be very similar to our game against Port.
I think folks are selling short the differences between the most efficient game plan in the AFL vs the most inefficient game plan in any football competition in the country.

They will have a kick to handball ration of 1.6 and have 60 inside 50's.

We'll have 70 more possessions, a kick to handball ration of 0.7 and 32 inside 50's.

I have penned a little something in honor of their momentous "backs to the wall" fighting spirit.

Half a league, half a league,
Half a league onward,
All in the valley of Death
Rode the twenty two.
“Forward, the Eagles!
Charge for the guns!” he said.
Into the valley of Death
Rode the twenty two.

“Forward, the Eagles!
Was there a man dismayed?
Not though the soldier knew
Someone had blundered.
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die.
Into the valley of Death
Rode the twenty two.

Cannon to right of them,
Cannon to left of them
Cannon in front of them
Volleyed and thundered;
Stormed at with shot and shell,
Boldly they rode and well,
Into the jaws of Death,
Into the mouth of hell
Rode the twenty two.

Flashed all their sabres bare,
Flashed as they turned in air
Sabring the gunners there,
Charging an army, while
All the world wondered.
Plunged in the battery-smoke
Right through the line they broke;
Cossack and Russian
Reeled from the sabre stroke
Shattered and sundered.
Then they rode back, but not
Not the twenty two.

Cannon to right of them,
Cannon to left of them,
Cannon behind them
Volleyed and thundered;
Stormed at with shot and shell,
While horse and hero fell.
They that had fought so well
Came through the jaws of Death,
Back from the mouth of hell,
All that was left of them,
Left of twenty two.

When can their glory fade?
O the wild charge they made!
All the world wondered.
Honour the charge they made!
Honour the Eagles,
Noble twenty two!
Charge of the Light Brigade

I reckon Taz and Walker can handle their two key forwards so how about McKay forward?

On a more important issue, what will people be drinking while watching the match?

Me, I am having a few Crownies, remembering when they were the elite beer, when North were an elite side, when Robbie Flower had to play on either Shimma or Greig and having a muscat at the final siren to celebrate the end of the season .

Seeing as though everyone is posting YouTube clips. My feelings on 2020:

If I was to refer to our wonderful game, my first love, as "she", then this is the state of our relationship.

I truly don't know what I did wrong ... and I'm taking it about as well as the tall guy in the red t-shirt.

(BTW, F*** you, Youtube - when you censor classics like this, you destroy them).
