The 2019 AFL Finals are here and after a fascinating regular season, we couldn’t be more excited.
West Coast and Essendon kick things off on Thursday night in the first elimination final from Optus Stadium in Perth. The Eagles are hot favourites to progress to week 2 of the finals while the Bombers are searching for their first finals win in 15 years.
It will be a sold out MCG on Friday night as Geelong and Collingwood go head to head. The Cat’s have been the best team all year but Collingwood know how to win finals so this one will be a blockbuster.
On Saturday afternoon, the competitions in form team, the Western Bulldogs travel to Sydney to take on the Giants. The Bulldog’s have amassed 384 points in their last 3 games and recently beat the Giants back in Round 22.
