Good afternoon, one and all. Once again, we pick ourselves up from the mat and stagger on, this time west across the continent to the still shining new-ish Optus Stadium in Perth, for a re-match of the Grand Final re-match against an in-form West Coast, precisely as our form has seemingly deserted us.
Tip: West Coast by 19 points. Yes, my ability to tip us has deserted me, too.
Congratulations to John Noble on making his AFL debut, just scant weeks after joining us as a mid-season draftee. I do hope your first game is a winning one, sir. For all our sakes.
Over to you…
