Not a great weekend for tips in the first weekend of AFL finals. The trend is to overlook the form of the teams that lost the major finals and overestimate the form of the winners of the elimination finals. I’m resisting that and expect the teams that came first and second in the home and away season to win this weekend. I don’t have confidence about their ability to go further than that, but we’ll see.
I was disappointed that Cronulla and Wests didn’t tie and knock Brisbane out, but Paramatta will probably fix that this weekend.
