Here we are for the last games of both competitions for 2017.
There have been some surprises, both in performances and lack thereof through the year, but there’s no doubt the teams playing both games are worthy of being there and worthy of lifting their respective trophies should they win.
Hard especially to pick between Adelaide and Richmond either on grounds of performance or sentiment. Both have demonstrated great resilience in adversity.
North Queensland have also shown amazing resilience, while Melbourne’s consistent level of brilliance is remarkable.
