    Went through all 4 teams and definitely didn't see any as a safe opponent. This could go any which way in my opinion. Good luck @dmandrews but not too much :)

    Thanks mate, good luck to you too.
    Out of interest, what does actually happen in the event of a drawn score in finals?
    Home team wins?

    We’re looking forward to the game.
    It’s finals footy time at Gariwerd.
    The locals have prepared some fine pre game entertainment and we’ve got the best meat tray ready for the raffle to be drawn at 3 quarter time.

    And Rory Laird is fired up to wreak havoc on his old team. The rest of the players are following his lead this week.

    Never happened, I say the odds are extreme that it would, but were it to happen it would be either highest ranked or most points for I guess, hopefully we never have to worry about it

    "Once more into the breach, dear friends, once more." All I ask @ChiefRussell is a good clean fight, no low blows nor high punches. May the better team progress. :p

    I prefer to channel your fellow Kiwi @graeme and say "At my signal, unleash hell"

    What I love about Misfits supporters is how understanding they are after a loss....

    Thanks Fitzy.

    Given the loss of the ORFFA's number 1 ranked defender Sam Docherty before the season and other injuries it has been a phenomenal effort by the Vultures to go through the 2018 home and away season * undefeated. Good luck in the finals @Fitzy

    Nankervis out with a quad cork hurts, however the number of ruckman on the Devils list comes in handy at times like this. Based on season to date averages for each team's finals line-up the Vultures have an advantage of 94 points overall with the Devils midfield depth and Gaff's suspension giving them a 2 point advantage in the midfield and 26 point advantage on the interchange. Vultures are +58 in def, + 37 in the ruc and + 27 in the forward line.

    Cradle Mountain are the only 2018 ORFFA finalist to have never finished in the top four. I would like to see Pendles finally play a final for the Devils on the weekend and the team continue their sequence of 1,300+ scores. Going to get a very good indication tonight if CMD will be competitive against the Vultures with seven Devils in action comprised of four Bombers and three Saints.
