The top 8 teams at the end of the AFL Premiership season compete in a four-week finals series throughout September, culminating in a Grand Final to determine the premiers.

The finals series is played under the AFL final 8 system, and the Grand Final is traditionally played at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on the afternoon of the last Saturday in September.

AFL TIPS | Grand Final

Western Bulldogs v Melbourne Demons Saturday 25/9/21 This shapes as a hugely intriguing grand final clash - and we still don’t really know how many people will be allowed at Optus Stadium with WA’s COVID scare. There is so much on the line for the Demons as they look to break a near-60 year premiership drought. But I’m tipping the


AFL Tips | Semi Finals

Geelong Cats v GWS Giants Friday 3/9/21 There’s been plenty of discussion about how the Cats fare in various stages of the finals’ series after last week’s qualifying demolition at the hands of Port. Virtually nothing went right for the Cats, but it wasn’t a huge surprise to some given they have an appalling record in the first week of finals.


AFL Tips | Finals Week 1

Second Qualifying Final -Port Adelaide Power v Geelong Cats Friday 27/8/21 Keen on the Cats to topple Port here at Adelaide Oval. I know this is home ground advantage for the Power, but it won’t be a full house due to COVID restrictions. I’m sure that’ll somewhat nullify any perceived advantage for Port. This is the second year running the


AFL Tips | Round 23

Western Bulldogs v Port Adelaide Power Friday 20/8/21 Cracking contest to kick off the round with third-placed Port coming up against a fourth-placed Bulldogs side looking to get out of a slump.

AFL Tips | Round 21

Geelong Cats v Greater Western Sydney Giants Friday 6/8/21 The Cats have won 15 of their last 16 at GMHBA Stadium and will prove tough to roll for the Giants. Not only do they love this venue, the Cats have also only tasted defeat once from their past 12 recent outings and are rightly considered a serious premiership contender. They’ll be


AFL Tips | Round 20

St Kilda Saints v Carlton Blues Friday 30/7/21 Carlton finally gets exciting pair Charlie Curnow with Harry McKay back together to form an exciting forward line once again, but will it be enough to counter an improving Saints? Despite losing their past two, the Saints are surging towards finals and have won their past five here at Marvel. Carlton is no


AFL Tips | Round 19

Port Adelaide Power v Collingwood Magpies Friday 23/7/21 A must-win for the Power if they are to make any claim for the top four. Much has been made about Port’s credentials in season 2021, but the fact is they’ve now won six of their past eight. They also welcome back a trio of important youngsters, with Connor Rozee, Zak Butters


AFL Tips | Round 18

Fremantle Dockers v Geelong Cats Thursday 15/7/21 An intriguing Thursday night encounter in the west offers Fremantle a rich chance to prove its finals’ worth.

Port Adelaide Power v Melbourne Demons Thursday 8/7/21 A Thursday night blockbuster pits second-placed Melbourne with four-placed Port Adelaide. This is an important clash for both sides, but particularly Port as they look to cement a spot in the top four. While they’ve won five of their past six, Port have enjoyed a breezy run in recent weeks and will

Gold Coast Suns v Richmond Tigers Thursday 1/7/2021 One of the major reshuffles in this COVID-ravaged fixture comes first up with the Suns ‘hosting’ the reigning premiers at Marvel Stadium. The Suns will be without ruckman Zac Smith (concussion) and onballers Noah Anderson (hand) and Hugh Greenwood (personal reasons) unavailable. Co-captain David Swallow returns from concussion as some consolation. For Richmond,

Brisbane Lions v Geelong Cats Thursday 24/6/2021 An in-form Geelong head north to the Gabba for one of the most daunting tasks in footy.

AFL Tips | Round 14

Geelong Cats v Western Bulldogs Friday 18/6/21 Geelong has home ground advantage as they look to keep momentum after a hard-fought away win over Port last week.

AFL Tips | Round 13

Port Adelaide v Geelong Cats Thursday 10/6/2021 Port host Geelong at Adelaide Oval in what shapes as a blockbuster for a surprise (and welcome) return to Thursday night footy. The Power come off two wins, but they’ve been far from convincing – limping past Collingwood before beating poor travellers Fremantle at home. Geelong are on a four-game winning streak, but
