AFL 2019: Prelim Finals: Learned, Liked and Disliked.

And then there were two.
What did we Learn, Like and Dislike from the Penultimate week of Footy in 2019?

After 206 games, we are left with two teams and one more game to decide the Premier team of season 2019. Richmond and GWS were both tested in their respective Preliminary Finals and are set to put on a memorable Grand Final when they meet next Saturday at the MCG.

Before we look ahead to the Grand Final Week festivities lets take a look back at what we learned, liked and disliked from Prelim Final weekend.


Richmond v Geelong

Learned: How good Gold Coast could have been with a number of their former players lighting up the MCG on this night.

Liked: Dion Prestia, might have been overshadowed by a former Suns team mate in much of the media reporting of the game, but a clear best on ground in this judge’s eye.

Disliked: Patty Dangerfield’s second half. Was arguably best on ground at the long break but was nowhere to be seen in the second half when the game, and a place in the Grand Final, was there to be won.


Check out our take on the First Prelim Final.

Collingwood v GWS

Learned: Despite what the commentators say, even if the opposition has only kicked three goals, five goals is never a safe lead.

Liked: GWS claiming an unlikely victory to keep their fairytale alive

Disliked: The sight of Collingwood fans filing out of the ground at three quarter time. They failed to show the resilience their team did to almost snatch the game in the final moments.
