Friday football finals fever

Well everycat, it's September again, and that can only mean one thing...

The Australian Football League finals series!

That's right! Here's the draw for the first round:

Friday night:
Hawthorn Hawks (finished the regular season in 2nd place) v Western Bulldogs (3rd place)

Saturday:
Adelaide Crows (5th place) v Collingwood Magpies (6th place)
Sydney Swans (6th place) v North Melbourne Kangaroos (7th place)

Sunday:
Geelong Cats v Saint Kilda Saints (4th place)

As expected, Hawthorn won tonight's game against the Bulldogs, but by a far bigger points margin that most of us predicted. For the rest of the games, I tip Adelaide, Sydney and Geelong to win. You heard it here first, sportsfans!

The two lowest-ranked losers from this round will be eliminated, while all the rest will live to fight another week. Keep an eye on each team's form, because in a few weeks, I'll invite you all to tip the winning team and the winning points margin for the Grand Final... there will be a prize involved.

May the best teams win!

Cheers,

Will Geelong go back to back, as predicted by myself? Of course they will! Can someone please buy the DVD for me when it comes out?

I have one thing to say, in my loudest voice:

“Go, Cuties, Go! You can Fight! You can BITE! Fight, Bite, WIN!”

Hey Pabs, good tipping buddy - 3 out of 4 is very respectable.
