A VFL qualifying final is set to be shown live on Channel Seven in Victoria on the Saturday night of the AFL’s pre-finals bye weekend.

The telecast is expected to start at 7pm on Saturday, September 1.

With the competing teams likely to include players vying for spots in the AFL finals series, the game is likely to attract viewers and, depending on the venue and the teams involved, a good crowd.

With the VFL’s final eight yet to be decided, the exact game and venue for the match is yet to be locked in, but Casey Demons, Richmond or Geelong could potentially host the televised final at their home venue, depending on results this weekend.

PRESIDENT Michael Shulman says Port Melbourne will hold off on contract talks with coach Gary Ayres until the end of the season.

Shulman said Ayres was keen to discuss his future “sooner rather than later’’ but the club believed negotiations should start when Port’s season finished.

Ayres signed a one-year deal a few weeks after the Borough’s stunning 2017 premiership.

VFL 2018: Isaac Conway ruptures ACL just two weeks after sister Sophie suffers the same injury

TWO weeks ago Isaac “Izzy’’ Conway was consoling his sister Sophie after she suffered an ACL injury while training with Richmond’s VFL Women’s team.

She was to make her debut for the Tigers the following day.

Now the 19-year-old Brisbane player must sit out the 2019 AFL W season.

ISAAC CONWAY DEDICATES SEASON TO LATE MOTHER

Last Sunday the fickle finger of fortune dealt the Conways another blow when powerful Port Melbourne onballer Izzy sustained the same knee injury, cutting short what was shaping as a best-and-fairest year for the Borough.

Conway hobbled off the ground in the second quarter against Box Hill Hawks at the City Oval. Scans the following day confirmed he had ruptured the ACL in his left knee.

Tasmania could have their own team in the VFL in 2021 as part of a vision being developed to drive football forward in the state.

AFL CEO Gillon McLachlan is expected to visit Tasmania on Friday with a set of recommendations after the AFL announced the Tasmanian State League would continue in 2019.

MARK Weideman played for Coburg. On Saturday his son Sam played against the Burgers — and played stylishly and superbly.

As his father watched on, rugged up at a cold and wet Casey Fields ground, the third-year Melbourne forward booted 7.0 for the Casey Demons, leading the home team to a emphatic win, 16.12 (108) to 4.7 (31).

Dees senior coach Simon Goodwin was at the match and his eye was presumably taken by Weideman’s sure marking and certain kicking.

It was his best return at the VFL.
