How to follow all the AFL finals action this year
- by admin
There is no shortage of finals action in this year’s AFL, with four games in three days.
One of them is the blockbuster clash between the West Coast Eagles and Melbourne, which will kick off at Domain Stadium on Saturday night.
The Eagles are a top-two team and are favourites to win the flag, but will be up against a Melbourne side that has won three of the past four finals.
There are also two other games that are expected to go down as some of the most intriguing and thrilling of the year, and the third will have some of it on the line.
While we have the Wests games to get to grips with, the finals are now a matter of when.
“I’m looking forward to the first one and it will be the first game of the finals,” Essendon captain Scott Pendlebury said.
“The first one is a bit of a dream come true for us, especially for our boys to get the first win of the season.”
We’ve had a really good run of form so far this year, but this one is going to be special.
“Essendon is currently in the finals chase after finishing seventh in the ladder, and have the fourth-highest winning percentage (90.4 per cent).
The Dockers, meanwhile, have finished third since the end of last year, with a winning percentage of 79.9 per cent.
Wells is hoping to be able to return to the field for his side’s final clash, and he is hoping he can continue to make a difference on the ground. “
It’s just the nature of the beast,” Dockers midfielder Daniel Wells said.

He said it would be great to get another go in front of his home crowd, but he also admitted it will make it a little tougher on himself to be in the line-up.
“Obviously, it’s tough to play on the other side of town, but it’s not a big deal,” Wells said after the match.
“You get used to it and you can cope with it.”
But I’m not going to get carried away by it.
If I get a little bit rusty, I’ll be back to being able to play.
It’s the same with any footy game, you get used out there and you get into the rhythm of it.
It’s going to take a little time.
