The 16 min quarters count against last year's GF as being one of the toughest AFL GFs as it lacked the war of attrition you get with full length quarters.2020 was pretty tough.
Two teams displaced from their homes and their families. Living interstate in camps essentially for 110 days.
Within the first 5 minutes, one player torn his calf and played out the game. Another was concussed and stretchered out and a third player took injections into his shoulder on numerous occasions, playing through the discomfort and pain in his last ever game.
Then later on, another player was wheeled off the group when his teammate leaped to mark a football, resulting in friendly fire that let him helpless on the ground.
One team was trailing by 20 points at half time, only to turn the result around and make it a 5 goal win.
