We're done for the year, absolutely toothless. We can't be intimidating any teams during this covid period.
They remind me of South in the SANFL, as in they show glimpses of great football & do enough to make finals but do no damage, plus aren’t hated by opposition fans. Hope that changes

I think we may be out in straight sets.

Western seem to be the strongest.
I still think SydneyFC will get it together and win the Grand final only because I don't think there really is an out and out challenger in the top six!

WU will all depends on how Diamanti reacts to finals football. Could give it a shake but they will have to do it on a cramped schedule. tough!

City have been playing some good football lately and are best place to topple Sydney but.. That Heart stigma still lingers throughout that club. Will be interesting to see how they handle it if they do make the Grand Final!

Nix, Roar, Glory all pretty much making up the numbers. imo

In reality I think Perth is the only team really without a shot given their lack of persenel and form.
The rest have near full squad or form so they can get it together if they are able to.
City and Sfc still favourites given position and squad but games will be tight and exciting no doubt

Hard to judge city properly due to game time played, but seems about right. You could add the reds and/or newy in 4th or 5th if you were considering all teams imo

Would put the jets in first if they made the 6 haha.
I liked the way City played against SFC and although they shat the bed against Adelaide I think they played pretty well before Noone saw red (literally steaming up before he tackled him).

The news everyone has been waiting for.... VAR is back for the finals 😕

I've really enjoyed it not being a thing since the restart. For the howlers that it solves, it introduces another layer of crapola decisions.

Someone is going to win/lose the Championship on the back of VAR.

As long as it's done right, there is no need to complain. I think the getting rid of the howlers and making sure it works is better than not having it. You can say the same thing with the nrl refs checking the bunker with pretty much every single try.

VAR gives refs more opportunities to interfere with the game, total cancer.
How good is it to see goals cancelled for being 1cm overside, or brushing a players arm in the buildup!!

Just use it properly and I won’t have an issue.
I’m ok with the idea of it being back so that teams won’t be bombing out of finals due to officiating howlers. Just as long as the technology doesn’t fail and it is applied properly, which have always been the issues for me.
