[quote="MinkaBeaver"]Coburg's loss today is about as big an upset in that grade as was that 2006 Grand Final.[/quote] Don't agree. Coburg's form had tapered off in the last few weeks of the season and they got belted by Williamstown last week in the 2nd Semi Final. Box Hill had been in good form with wins in 6 of its last 7 games - including one over Williamstown. The last time Coburg and Box Hill played, Coburg got home by just 8 points. The form-line pointed to a very close tussle, which is exactly what happened.

Where did you get this info Robbo? Pete.

I would have thought the reserves game would be Sunday to give Box Hill a 7 day break.

Check out the fixture of the VFL site for a laugh - they say the seniors finals start at 1.10pm - they don't, they start at 2.10pm - and it's listed Williamstown v Coburg(!) as the reserves GF!!!! LOL Pete.

Looks like common sense has prevailed,Willy website is showing reserves grand final is a curtain raiser on the Saturday. Think i'd rather go with this version than believe anything on the Vfl site produced by those bumblers.

[quote="CaseyRadio"] Both Senior Games to start at 2pm!![/quote] 2.10pm :P In all seriousness, thats a great decision. I think fans prefer the later starts, there is no reason for going with 1.10pm starts this weekend.
