Final 8 possibilities

For those interested in what might happen after this weekend....

1st Geelong (v Bendigo away) - 12 points clear on top, this won't change.

2nd Box Hill (v Casey home) - a loss would see them finish 3rd - a massive loss and a huge Williamstown win could see them drop to 4th and a final against the all-conquering Cats.

3rd Casey (v Box Hill away) - a win will pinch 2nd, a loss likely means 4th if Willy get up.

4th Williamstown (v Northern home) - victory would see them finish 3rd if Casey lose, likely to stay 4th if Casey win. A loss would need to be huge to see them lose 4th spot.

5th Werribee (v Collingwood away) - would need a massive win and a massive Willy loss to pinch 4th. Likely to stay 5th even with a loss unless Collingwood smash them.

6th Collingwood (v Werribee home) - huge win needed to climb to 5th. A loss could be potentially fatal if Port and Northern get up.

7th Port Melbourne (v Coburg away) - will miss if Northern get up and they have a loss. Can only climb as high as 5th with a Werribee loss.

8th Essendon (v North Ballarat home) - must win to make the 8. Could finish as high as 6th with a win, or drop to 10th with a loss.

9th Northern (v Williamstown away) - must win and hope for North Ballarat to roll Essendon to give them 8th on percentage. If Essendon win, they need either Port or Collingwood to lose to get them in.

10th North Ballarat (v Essendon away) - must win and see Northern or Port lose to let them sneak in. Could possibly pinch Collingwood's spot if the Pies had a huge loss.

Geelong will play the loser of the Casey v Box Hill game in week one of finals.
Williamstown will play the winner of the Casey v Box Hill game in week one of finals. That is if the seagulls win which they will against Carlton seconds.
North Ballarat will beat Essendon and if the seagulls win will sneak into the eight.
They could possibly face Port Melbourne in week one of finals with Werribee playing Collingwood in the other final.
My predictions for week one Geelong v Casey, Box Hill v Williamstown, North Ballarat v Port and Werribee v Collingwood.

I see the top 8 as this...

Geelong 64
Box Hill 52
Williamstown 48
Casey 48
Werribee 44
Port Melbourne 38
Essendon 36
Collingwood 36

As much as there's talk about a Geelong night final, might gut feeling says it won't happen.

So (and considering when AFL sides play), the finals would look like this.

Saturday:
E/F: Port Melbourne v Essendon at North Port
E/F: Werribee v Collingwood at Werribee

Sunday:
Q/F: Geelong v Casey at North Port
Q/F: Box Hill v Williamstown at Box Hill

Just got the confirmation...

AFL Vic have done a ground inspection of North Port Oval and it's been declared fit for play for the VFL Finals Series :)

Haven't AFL Vic have already stated that 1st and 2nd will be entitled to home finals in week 1? So surely the only way there won't be a final at Geelong is if the Cats don't want it.

Geelong are pushing for a home final on Friday night.

Geelong AFL plays at home on the Saturday.

I'll be there with bells on Burra.
Confident......Not really. Personally I don't think we are up to it. Would need a lot of luck.
If we were to make it you never know, maybe we could sneak a win & as you know we don't hold any fears playing at Port.
If your good enough you win.

We might be from the bush. but we ain't green
