Collingwood a chance if they manage to avoid the top 8 teams in the finals.

Be careful what you wish for.


I reckon the Eagles are our main threat.

A Top 2 spot and a home final pretty much sewed up  :clapping.

3 games clear of third (Giants a further half a game behind still to play).

One more win sows up top 2 and two more for top due to percentage?

Just looking through the final 3 weeks I reckon Eagles, Giants and Hawks will win all of their remaining games.

Richmond locks in home advantage

Richmond has now secured a two top finish and an extended run at the MCG on the back of its 74-point win over the Gold Coast. Ominously for their September rivals, the Tigers won't have to leave the MCG again if they win their first home final. With their last two home and away games also at their favourite hunting ground, the Tigers are sure to continue their charge into September with plenty of momentum. For all their domination so far this season, this was Richmond's first interstate win for the year.
