Footscray to beat collingwood by 29 points. WILLIAMSTOWN to beat casey by 23 points. Extra days recovery perfect for the seagulls. This will set up a western derby grand final.

I hope Collimgwood win so the VFL can get a half decent crowd to the GF against Williamstown

If Casey make it their 500 supporters will really drag the crowd numbers down

I also predict that there will be a bigger crowd at the Womens GF at Coburg than either of the VFL games this weekend in fact if the weather is ok I might go and have a squiz at the sheilas just to see the City Oval with a big crowd again.

I hope collingwood get flogged. I would rather see a williamstown v footscray gf. Nothing better than seeing collingwood lose a final. Footscray beat them in the last round and can beat them again.

With the dogs win over Hawthorn it is all set for the western suburbs to be on a high next weekend. Only requires Footscray to have a win over collingwood on saturday and the seagulls to beat casey on sunday. If that happens it will be a massive buzz way out west. WILLIAMSTOWN v FOOTSCRAY gf in vfl plus DOGS on afl Preliminary Final against gws (great waste of space).

Hey vfa, if it is a Collingwood v Casey GF then that guarantees 7 different clubs will have won the flag over the last 7 years (North Ballarat, Port Melb, Geelong, Box Hill, Footscray, Williamstown).  Last time that happened was 1959 to 1965 when Williamstown, Oakleigh, Yarraville, Sandringham, Moorabbin, Port Melbourne and Waverley were premiers.

Interesting also, that over the past 6 years the premiers have been evenly split between:

- aligned clubs (North Ballarat and Box Hill)

- AFL reserve teams (Geelong and Footscray)

- VFL stand alones (Port and Willy)

Good crowd again at Port. The atmosphere once again very good on a warm dry day. Maybe 5000-6000 here.

Quarter time in an good standard game so far.
