    If GWS win, we'd play Geelong.

    GWS look terrible at the moment, but they have a whole heap of possible inclusions for the first week of the finals - Greene, Corr, Williams, Griffen, Deledio, de Boer - that would make their team significantly stronger.

    Exactly. They will be a different team when we meet them in a couple of weeks. I'm not real confident as we'll go in as heavy favorites after their crap performance today.

    Yep no doubt those inclusions will make a big difference should they be fit. Much like dare I say it the Bulldogs - who were benefitted so much from the break in 2016. But maybe we will too - in terms of Buddy, Parker and Hanners at least getting fit. Buddy in particular surely will really benefit from 3 weeks off.

    Indeed, indeed! But it is carrying a pot of almost $250 this year, so no small change (will pay for week 1 of finals if nothing else!) hehehe

    Not a gimme yet! While I took North, one of the other two rolled the dice and took St Kilda. If St Kilda were to win it, I would finish 2nd on margin by just 15 points difference (over the entire season that is less than a point a week!). Hopefully Norf can pull their finger out and stop this mini St Kilda fightback in the 3rd and do it relatively comfortably...

    So, when your Hawks colleague mentions their win, are you planning on idly flicking through the $250?

    Hahaha maybe :P

    He is a nice guy (though like many a Hawks fan arrogant as all hell about footy during the three peat), but no doubt he will rib me about the game.

    If only I had of had a lazy $10 on my tips for the last two weeks - not a bad finish to tip 2 perfect rounds to finish the season! I haven't won the work tipping comp for about 5 years, so will have to celebrate a little bit hehe Its the cats fan that will finish 3rd that I'll give more grief to - he is utterly painful about footy (he is one of those people that feels if you aren't Victorian you can't possibly understand footy), so I will give him a bit tomorrow!

    They got it done, but for a little bit in the 2nd half I feared the worst

    I'm even leading the RWO tipping competition now - can't ever remember even finishing top 10 or 20 in it! Still finals to screw that one all up and Danzar is right on my tail
