AFL 2019: Learned Liked Disliked Finals Week One

What did we Learn, Like and Dislike from the first week of the 2019 Finals?

West Coast v Essendon

Learned: Talk of ‘Wild Card Weekends’ should go the way of AFLX, if team seven eight are this bad after a week off, how bad would they be after a cut-throat final?

Liked: Dom Sheed racking up possessions for fun.

Disliked: The Eagles, the defending premiers have not proved strong against good teams in 2019. Are they flat track bullies?


Geelong v Collingwood

Learned: The Cats are pretenders. Strong doubt exists over the ability to avoid a straight sets exit.

Liked: Some of the banter from Collingwood about their ‘home final’.

Disliked: This was a scrappy affair that failed to live up to pre-game expecations.


Check out our take on the AFL’s continued push for a twilight Grand Final.

GWS vs Bulldogs

Learned: Could GWS be a smoky this year?

Liked: Finally GWS brought the rough stuff and it worked.

Disliked: At times GWS took it a little too far.


Brisbane vs Richmond

Learned: Dusty is near impossible to stop, Hodge did a good job but he still kicked six.

Liked: The Tigers were scary good. Didn’t get much out of their twin towers and still kicked 18 goals.

Disliked: Lions early jitters. Were all over the Tigers and should have been up by six goals at quarter time, instead they are facing the possibility of a straight sets exit.
