Like the rest of the sports world, it has been a season like no other for the AFL. As we move into the first week of the final series, let’s watch four powerhouse games, and it all starts tonight.
The road to finals glory begins today (Thursday, Oct. 1 at 7:40 PM AEST) with the Power playing in front of an excited home crowd, but the team have their work cut out against the Cats. Port Adelaide was dominated by Geelong in Round 12, where the Cats lost 91-31.
The Brisbane Lions will take on Richmond in Gabba on Friday, October 2 (7:50 PM AEST) in a qualifying final. The Tigers were in top form, but if Brisbane can handle the pressure and come out on top, the Queensland team is on their way to securing a home final.
St Kilda will face the Western Bulldogs on Saturday, October 3 (4:40 p.m. AEST) in an elimination game. It has taken a long time for the Saints, who will appear in the final for the first time since 2011.
Later that night, West Coast Eagles will face Collingwood in another final decider (8:10 PM AEST / 6:10 PM WST). The Magpies started strong this year, but have since dropped to the bottom of the top eight teams. Collingwood has had a tough season both on and off the field, so this go-hard or go-home game played with an Eagles home crowd will be hard to win.
Each final match will be broadcast live online and for free. Here’s how to watch it all unfold in the run-up to the grand finale on October 24.
