Close final after round 1, maybe a slight edge to the Buccaneers with 18 to WHE.

I would have said a slight edge to Straddo with Treloar 35 as a mid.

A lot will come down to whether Gawn is fully fit or not, he is up against Goldstein who has been going well so he will need to be at his best.
Gawn sat out most of the last quarter last week with hamstring soreness apparently and Preuss (Melbourne and the Buccaneers other ruckman) has been named this week.
Even if Gawn is fully fit he is not likely to score as high as usual as he never does with Preuss in the side.
I would have liked to have named Preuss as a forward as he usually get a couple at least but I have left him on the interchange incase Gawn is a late out.

I'm hoping Whitfield has a huge game against GC.
I'm also expecting Dunkley to have a big game for Straddo.

Mayday Mayday!

We're relying on some buccaneers to fall over and some big performances from the souls to recover from here.

I feel like it's half time at the 2013 grand final.

There's a long way to go yet Straddo, 3/4 time at the 2013 GF it was pretty close.

Kennedy went alright but I hope my other mids Whitfield and Houli go ok, I have Hannebery (28) and Harmes (32) on the bench, I hope that wasn't a mistake.

Ablett on the bench (3 goals) and dahlhaus as a defender (3 goals) is already biting hard!

Well, it ain't over till it's over but I think I can hear an overweight woman warming up her vocal chords.

Think I make it

Buccaneers 144.5 with Houli (mid) and Sam Lloyd (fwd) to go
vs
Lost Souls 83 with Dunkley (mid) Hartlett (back) and Martin (ruck) to go

I'm going to count her in in 1 2 3

The stats would suggest we're going down by about 42 points.

It's a small solace, but its starting to look more like the 2015 final than 2013.

Congrats Alvin!

Cheers Straddo but although I acknowledge I'm in the box seat I wont be celebrating yet.
I still remember losing Ward for the season when he was on 1 point, anything can happen.

By my calcs, hartlett only needs 20 marks in the second half to make it a contest.

Souls have been a fairly constant 130-150 point team, alvin In the 180s is a great score to win the GF.
