AFL – GRAND FINAL
Welcome to the AFL Grand Final where we are down to the final two teams for 2015.
Grand Final: Saturday, October 3rd, 2.30pm, MCG
HAWTHORN v WEST COAST EAGLES
BETTING: HAWTHORN $1.60 – WEST COAST $2.40
Hawthorn will chase history on Saturday as it attempts to win a third straight premiership. The Hawks have taken the long road to their fourth consecutive Grand Final after losing to the Eagles in Perth in week one of the finals. But after thumping Adelaide they kept up the momentum with a road win against minor premier Fremantle to qualify. Meanwhile, the Eagles are one step away from completing a fairytale season and winning the club’s fourth flag after disposing of the Kangaroos. They last won in 2006 and, despite beating the Hawks just three weeks ago, will start underdogs this time.
WHERE THE HAWKS CAN WIN IT
Everyone knows what the Hawks can do – it’s just a matter of stopping it. Their ball use is the best in the competition, and as they showed last week against the Dockers, any mistake gets punished. They love to dominate possession, and when they do, are very hard to beat. After three straight Grand Finals there’s no risk of stage fright, so expect the Hawks to bring their absolute best, which is usually good enough.
WHERE THE EAGLES CAN WIN IT
Less than three weeks ago, Adam Simpson’s men showed the type of suffocating pressure that can upset the Hawks. The much-vaunted defensive ‘web’ limits the opposition’s time and space and can create turnovers en masse. In Kennedy, Jack Darling, LeCras and Josh Hill, the Eagles have a forward line that can stretch the Hawks.
Second qualifying final, Subiaco Oval: West Coast 14.12 (96) d Hawthorn 9.10 (64)
The Eagles suffocated the Hawks for three quarters and raced to a commanding 50-point lead before easing home. Without injured Matt Priddis the new premiership favourites shared the work as Josh Kennedy and Josh Hill kicked three goals each.
Round 19, Subiaco Oval: Hawthorn 13.10 (88) d West Coast 11.8 (74)
Hawthorn moved towards the top two with a hard-earned victory in wet conditions. Sam Mitchell (36 disposals) and Jordan Lewis (30) led the way as the Hawks overturned a four-point deficit at three-quarter time. Andrew Gaff had 36 touches for the hosts.
