Finals begin this weekend in the AFL. I’m tipping Brisbane, without conviction. I do expect them to make one of the preliminary finals, though.
The NRL season finally grinds to a halt this weekend. Eighth spot is up for grabs. It’s a bit hard to know whether watching Paul Gallen or Robbie Farrah get a chance at one last final is more appealing. Both have been tremendous servants of their sport.
