    Well done @port_leschenault, backs to the wall performance from your team and other than a 10 goal Ben Brown miracle, most of my players were sadly nowhere when it counted.

    Go Dogs!

    Thanks J! Needed a lot of luck and definitely got it this week. Very unlucky, think you have a good list.

    Speaking of dogs, you know what looks good on them? Chokers. Just sayin ;)

    Mate, on the day Roughie kicked 6, I made a Granny with 13.5 players and won another one (ignoring actual SC lalala).

    Anything can happen. ;)

    Stoked to be in the big dance again. Gold coloured lion plushies for everyone if we get through.

    Our first elimination final is in Ballarat next Sunday. If we lose and the Hawks can knock off WC in Perth, you deserve to make it.

    The way that we've been so inconsistent Im not expecting much especially away in Perth, but happy to still be in the hunt. Tbh surprised both the SA teams have struggled and aren't in the eight.

    I agree, with my own eyes I saw Ben McEvoy play a whole game as a defender. And I know it was you who told Clarko to do that just to mess with my selection next week!

    So what if you can win a final with 14 available players, why not win with...12 available.

    Actually got Duursma, Finlayson and possibly Bewley back so up to 14.5 players! Based on last week, that's more than enough. :D

    Voiceover: It wont be.

    I didn't sign up for this where's my promised 15 v 12?

    Well I have Mason Wood back so that evens out. Also Lewy Taylor successfully kneecapped Christensen last week and might even get a look in himself. Apart from my 3 LTIs I've had since basically the start of the season I think I actually have every player playing this week which is crazy, so no excuses.

    Going in like this I believe:

    D: Houli, Maynard, Hardwick, Aliir (Short)
    M: Fyfe, Duncan, Zorko, Ross (Fritsch)
    R: McEvoy
    F: Walters, Macpherson, Cameron, De Boer (Newnes)
    I: Hewett, Redden (Ceglar)

    Yeah no way we will be competitive compared to that lineup. Shame this wont be a close Granny to make it interesting but the Magicians are long overdue their own Cup win. :thumbsu:

    Have a look at averages of the two sides, mate :D

    Maynard's 57 is appreciated though, just 14 more like it needed :p

    Gawn double century and Duncan injured early not a great Saturday for the Magicians so far

    Would like to know why Viney was tagging Cunners. Don't they know they're teammates?

    Got dudded by Clarko again, thought they might return to McEvoy ruck and Ceglar forward without Roughy/Mtich Lewis but sure enough they are playing their number one ruck at full back FFS

    He was at CHB. And looked terrible.

    But Hawthorn didn't! Carn the Hawks! Carn the Crows!

    Was making some good points back but DMac only playing half a game was painful. Glad the match is still alive after Gawn's effort and have some elites to play tomorrow.

    Pyrite 875/10 leading Magicians 774/10

    Blakely, Duursma, Lyons, Edwards and JJ vs Houli, Walters, Cameron, Fyfe and Zorko

    Going down to Freo vs Port that's for sure

    I thought we were playing with 14.5 players, not 16. Have you counted a Pyrite playing/scoring twice?

    Glad it's competitive at least, didn't expect that at all. Will have to pay attention tomorrow. If JJ is racking it up because it's down that end of the field so much it'll be a good day.
