It is that time again, footy finals – the most wonderful time of the year.
With two big sudden-death finals ahead this weekend the Pinch Hitter team nominate:
- Who will win?
- The weekend’s sure thing
- Most at stake
- Doomsday scenario
WHO WILL WIN?
Ben: Eddie having another sook about the six-day break should the Pies win.
Bozza: Shaun Burgoyne and Luke Breust won’t repeat their horrific misses.
Jai: Cracking games are coming our way.
Jarrod: Pies. Can’t lose at the G after their Optus Stadium heroics.
Joel: Big challenges await whoever wins this weekend.
Josh: Dees wave keeps flowing as hawks get swept away.
Sudi: Pies v Gws will be a thriller.
Warrick: Jeremy Cameron to kick five but it wont be enough.
MOST AT STAKE
Ben: Collingwood. Don’t want to go out in straight sets given their performance in Perth.
Bozza: Collingwood. Defeat would mean just one win against top-eight opposition and question marks remaining despite all that they’ve achieved.
Jai: Collingwood because straight sets sucks.
Jarrod: Collingwood. Can’t lose and go out in straight sets after their Optus Stadium heroics.
Joel: Collingwood. Can’t lose after being so impressive last week.
Josh: Giants. They’ll lose a name or two this offseason, results need to come while they still have this playing group.
Sudi: Hawthorn’s experienced players can’t afford to go missing two games in a row.
Warrick: Collingwood. Straight sets would give Eddie a coronary.
Ben: Melbourne losing by more than five goals. Would be crushing after all they’ve achieved.
Bozza: Toby Greene’s boots again overshadow his footballing exploits.
Jai: Hawthorn find another gear, and gain momentum. They’ve had enough success.
Jarrod: A repeat of last Friday and Saturday afternoon. We need close games
Joel: After all the hype and hope, the Dees get thrashed on Friday night.
Josh: Pies win and we get a whole week of Eddie’s whinging on the radio about their short turnaround.
Sudi: Pies out in straight sets not the ideal end to a fighting season where they have overcome a lot.
Warrick: The Dees getting flogged.
