Tom Lynch up one end for Richmond. Jeremy Cameron for the Giants at the other. Shane Mumford going head-to-head with Ivan Soldo in the ruck. And which of Richmond's midfield stars will the Giants send Matt de Boer to?
This week on The Age Real Footy Podcast, Jimmy Bartel joins Michael Gleeson, Jake Niall and Caroline Wilson to preview the grand final. What will be the key battles around the ground? What changes will GWS and make to their team? Will Richmond have an advantage having had an extra week off? And who are our panellists tipping?
The team talks fallout from the preliminary finals, including a "failure of epic proportions" with the goal review system. Has this been a successful year for the Pies? Should they consider moving Darcy Moore forward? Should Gary Ablett play on for Geelong next season? And despite some negative talk around Geelong in the back half of the season, does their season stand up? And are they set up for success in 2020?
We also go inside the coaches' box with Scott Burns, who gives his take on Brodie Grundy's ruck dominance – which resulted in GWS comfortably winning the clearances, how the Tigers could counterract GWS' defence, and what the key factor could be in deciding the grand final.
All this plus the verdict on Essendon's coaching succession plan, tips for the Norm Smith and much more.
