Junior partners in a growing market getting up.
Bulldogs winning out west when no one gave them a chance.
A small dent in the 4-peat (or whatever jargon bollocks its being called).
But of course, that also means its no fun for machine based tipsters.
|PREDICTED RESULT||ACTUAL RESULT||RATINGS ADJUSTMENTS|
|West Coast||by||29||pts||W Bulldogs/FFC||by||47||pts||West Coast||-22||W Bulldogs/FFC||+22|
Still its better than none.
And the rankings table is all sorts of mad.
Every team in position 1 to 9 changed bar GWS, who edged closer to the top 2.
Under that group of three, is another four teams similarly ranked, separated by less than 20 points.
Its certainly is a very even finals series.
And the finals draw has opened out nicely for GWS - just how important a win that was.
Their next appointment is with either Hawthorn or the Western Bulldogs. Both of these teams by the FMI rankings, are significantly low enough on the rankings, and battling against the HGA at the Showgrounds, that the predictor sees GWS as a 77% chance of a debut Grand Final appearance.

The Bulldogs remain the outsiders to play on the big day, while the most likely pairings are a GWS-Geelong or GWS-Sydney derby GF.
What a season of footy if we had a second derby final!
