As we get to the beginning of the AFL finals we need to look back on the AFL round 23 2017 results. Looking at the AFL round 23 2017 results you’ll notice that Fortuna managed to get 6 of her tips right. This brings her 2017 tipping total to 125 for the year. Not as good as her AFL 2016 results where she managed to score 139. But then there were a heck of a lot more upsets this year than last year and I’m sure most tipsters didn’t fare as well this year.
Unfortunately for me I backed the Crows to win last week but once again they lost to West Coast. I say once again because the very same thing happened last year when they lost to West Coast playing at home. A bit of deja vu, wouldn’t you agree?
The Adelaide Crows vs West Coast game must have been frustrating as hell for both Melbourne fans as well as the West Coast fans. West Coast had to beat Adelaide by at least 20 points to ensure a placement in the top 8. Otherwise Melbourne would have won that position. Throughout the game both clubs sea sawed in and out of finals contention. In the end the Eagles won and Melbourne gets to sit out the finals.
This is how Perth Now saw the Eagle’s win against the Crows.
Finals Draw Week One
So, how does the week one Finals Draw look like?
THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 7
First Qualifying Final
Adelaide v GWS at Adelaide Oval
FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 8
Second Qualifying Final
Geelong v Richmond at the MCG
SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 9
Second Elimination Final
Sydney v Essendon at the SCG
First Elimination Final
Port Adelaide v West Coast at Adelaide Oval
Now, Port Power fans were probably hoping for a Crows win, knowing they would face West Coast if the Crows lost. There are probably some Crows fans who were hoping for a loss thinking that the Eagles will push the Power out of the Finals in Saturday’s elimination finals.
Next week is going to be an exciting finals week.
