Tip – The defending Premier West Coast Eagles find themselves in the unexpected position of having to host an elimination final despite sitting in the Top 4 for most of the home-and-away season.
The Bombers have limped into the finals and have been in up-and-down form. Despite having former West Coast legend, John Worsfold as their coach with plenty of hometown knowledge, the Bombers will find the Eagles highly motivated to defend their AFL flag in style.

Tip – The Cats have wobbled through the second half of the season and have not been at their best, but this is the finals now and the combatant is the old enemy, the Collingwood Magpies.
Look for the collective old heads of Ablett, Dangerfield, Hawkins and friends to re-align the Cats motivation and account for Colling wood in what could be an incredibly close match.

Tip – Look no further than 3 weeks ago when the Bulldogs pulverised the Giants at the Giants home ground 126 – 65 for the best form line on the second elimination final.
There is a lot of similarity in season 2019 for the Bulldogs and their fairy tale Premiership year. Despite the Giants offering so much this year, the Bulldogs momentum is too imposing to ignore.

Tip – Will the revelation of AFL season 2019, the Brisbane Lions be good enough to deny the Tigers at the ‘Gabbatoir’? Two weeks ago at the MCG, Richmond gave the Lions are great lesson in the type of pressure required to win big games.
The feeling is that this could be the closest match of Week 1 of the Finals. Arguably, Richmond rarely win away from home, but the player match-ups learnt two weeks ago have the Tigers well placed to play themselves into a Preliminary Final.
