I started playing footy in grade 4, while not turning 8 until after that season with a birthday in late September, in under 14’s as there was no younger age groups in country Victoria back in 1988! Between then and now I had 4 years out of football after moving to Melbourne then started back...
I found a Collingwood superfan on Twitter (give her a follow, she’s a ripper) who goes to many, if not all of their training sessions and drops comments on who’s training, those who aren’t and those doing rehab while also commenting on the better performers of that day.

Season 7 has seen over 500mins of review from over 300 game clips and culminates in this 20min review of the Grand Final.
If you watched the game you’ll probably have noticed that both teams opted to defend far stronger then attempting to score and with only 16 players/side on the ground it’s near impossible for 2 top 4 teams to do both at the same time – it’s definitely time to get 18 players per team on the ground so teams can play with more forwards once they go forward with speed.
With 16 players you have to go fast to less forwards or slow to more defenders, both options don’t really favor the ability to develop scoring opportunities, especially between the best teams in the comp which are always low scoring unless it’s a total blow out.
All that said it was still a tense and engaging contest going right up until the final seconds of the last quarter.
