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:
Hawthorn Hawks (finished the regular season in 2nd place) v Western Bulldogs (3rd place)
Adelaide Crows (5th place) v Collingwood Magpies (6th place)
Sydney Swans (6th place) v North Melbourne Kangaroos (7th place)
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!
