When I was asked to be involved in compiling The Roar‘s Top 50 AFL players, initially there was some trepidation.
As the 2015 season – Greater Western Sydney’s fourth since birth – is about to begin, it’s not quite time to trot out the old Elvis classic It’s Now or Never, but it’s rapidly heading towards D-Day for the Giants.
Wow, where to start? Firstly, credit to the victors. Just seven days earlier, I made it fairly clear I thought the Swans would not only win the AFL premiership, but do it with reasonable ease.
I’m not for one moment suggesting the impact of Lance ‘Call me Buddy’ Franklin should be seen for anything other than what it is – match-winning.
If you listened closely at Patersons Stadium late on Saturday night, you could almost hear it.
Members, supporters and even casual fans of the four clubs playing next weekend would all have justified reason to believe their team can win and advance to a grand final qualifier the following week.
