This seems like wishful thinking from Rose, who is no doubt fantasizing about the Tigers flogging into the Demons on GF day.

Melbourne will beat West Coast, and this is why

The Giants would be better off to trade him this year, to get a decent return.

The Hawks and Giants will be better in 2019 for their 2018 performances

I’m happy that my belief that the Hawks were a 5/6 side this season has been confirmed.

The NRL is a television-based sport; this is well known.

NRL finals have been better this year, no doubt.

The smaller NRL crowds confirm the AFL is the superior code? Rubbish!

I think you can speculate on this, if those allegations are printed in the press.

What now for the Geelong Cats, the AFL's most interesting team?

Both of these teams’ midfields are totally cooked. Both need a cleanout, and a new coach.

Losing elimination finalists Geelong and Sydney share many parallels

The Giants are above par for 2018, given their personnel dramas, and four-match losing streak. Only a rough chance next week, tough.

Richmond Tigers vs Hawthorn Hawks: AFL Finals Forecast

I’m guessing that a lot of people buy the DT for classifieds, TV Guide, form guide, celebrity news, and assorted odds & ends. I’m not sure that anyone takes its reporting seriously.

What a waste of a front page

I made the prediction of a RICH-WC Grand Final at another Roar article.

Unprecedented strength in the bottom half of the eight

2018 is shaping up as one of the most predictable series of recent years. Richmond and West Coast will cruise through to the GF. Any two of the 5-8 sides would have been better in third & fourth spots.

Unprecedented strength in the bottom half of the eight

Surely people can fill in one weekend without football, after 23 consecutive weeks of it.

If the AFL wants to keep the pre-finals bye, it has to make more of it

There’s little doubt that the Crows would have won last year, had the GF been played at the Adelaide Oval.

Grand Finals at the MCG are unfair? That's rubbish

The only thing that would make it interesting would be a Hawks win over the Tigers, which seems highly unlikely.

Who among the chasing pack can topple the Tigers?

The Cats are the “chaos ball” of this year’s Finals: could go down in a screaming heap against the Demons, but could make the GF.

The Week 1 AFL finals fixture is a disaster

The Magpies have a terrible record against other Top Eight teams. They got to third courtesy of an easy draw.

AFL releases 2018 All Australian squad of 40

It’s hard to gauge Richmond’s form. The Bulldogs won the marks 131 to 85; they seemed to win nearly every marking contest. The Tigers were playing to avoid injury.

It’s a definite surprise that RICH-HAW is not on Friday night.

UPDATED: AFL finals fixture 2018 week one - who plays who, when and where

It has the feel of being a fairly boring end to the season, but to bring out the old cliche: it’s a funny old game.

The Eagles are destined to be the ‘what if’ team of 2018

If they play like they did on Saturday night, they’ll lose by fifty.

The AFL top eight is set, but the demon is in the detail

Richmond winning the Minor Premiership before the season wraps up is why I’m in favour of the pre-finals bye.
