Up the Eagles! Couldn’t find a good stream ffs but saw bits and pieces. Nerve wrecking finish and one of the best finals in years apparently.

Watched the full match on Sunday. Brilliant final. Collingwood led early but got pegged back by half time and then the lead swung a few times. Jack Darling the most relieved man in the stadium at the end, he dropped an absolute sitter in the last minute in front of goals that would have guaranteed the win for the Eagles. The fact he missed left 1 kick in it and meant he had a nervous last few seconds. Serious effort by the Eagles given they were missing two of their biggest stars for the last few weeks of the season in Gaff (Suspension) and Nicnacnui (injury).

Tom  Mitchell of Hawthorn won the Brownlow the week before. Well deserved.

Not sure if Aerlik is still around on here but he will be glad he stopped his weekly updates this year. It would have been tough for a Freo man to report on the Eagles the last few weeks.
