Who's out? Selection puzzlers for the prelims

AFL 2017 First Semi Final - GWS v West Coast

Steve Johnson kicked six goals against the Eagles

IT'S DO-OR-DIE time for the four teams contesting the preliminary finals.

With spots in the Grand Final at stake, clubs are sweating on form and injuries as they head to the selection table.

Our reporters take a look at the arguments for and against selecting individual players, and predict the likely ins and outs for the two matches.

ADELAIDE

Injuries: Forward Mitch McGovern is highly unlikely to recover in time from a hamstring injury suffered at training last weekend. The Crows will also be missing attacking half-back flanker Brodie Smith, who tore the ACL in his knee in the qualifying final win against Greater Western Sydney. Star midfielder Rory Sloane returns after missing the qualifying final recovering from appendix surgery.

Under the pump: The Crows will stay with the side that has got them this far.

In the frame: With...

Draft hopeful sheds 10kgs after frank advice

AFL 2017 U18 Championships - Vic C v WA

Jake Patmore is hoping to be drafted later this year

JAKE Patmore had a decision to make.

Was he prepared to knuckle down and drop some excess weight, or was he willing to risk his shot at making it onto an AFL list?   

Entering his draft season, Patmore tipped the scales at 81kg and knew he "just wasn't getting the run" he needed.

So, after some frank conversations about his fitness, the 181cm Claremont midfielder got to work. 

"At the start of the year I had to lose quite a few kilos. I was a bit chubby and had to get my skinfolds down," Patmore told AFL.com.au

"I’ve lost nine or 10 kilos, and I’m feeling a whole lot lighter on my feet and I’ve lost about 30 points in skinfolds.

"It wasn’t so much eating bad foods, it was just eating too much.

"I had to take that back and now I’ve got a routine with what I eat."

Long-time AFL assistant coach Peter Sumich immediately saw...

The Chase: Can the Tigers end an all-time drought?

Made possible by Wolf Blass logo

IT HAS been 35 long years since Richmond last reached a Grand Final.

On September 25, 1982, when the Tigers last played off in the big one, Malcolm Fraser was the prime minister, coach Damien Hardwick was just 10 years old and superstar Dustin Martin was still nine years off arriving into the world.

Fans aren't quite sure how to react to Richmond aiming for its long-awaited Grand Final berth when it takes on Greater Western Sydney on Saturday. 

A whole generation of Richmond fans don't know what it's like for their team to be playing on that one day in September. And it's very nearly Tiger time. 

It shouldn't come as a surprise, given the Tigers' Lids have been off since the NAB AFL Trade Period, after former Richmond star Brett Deledio was traded to the Giants. 

Richmond has played 778 games since its last Grand Final in 1982, the fifth longest Grand Final drought...

'Mozzie' still creating a buzz at Tigerland

THE SPOTLIGHT has always followed Jack Riewoldt. From his early emergence as a superstar goalkicker, to the on-field antics that saw his passion and exuberance misunderstood as petulance.

But something has changed in 2017. The spotlight has shone elsewhere at Punt Road Oval and Riewoldt has gone about his business quietly, playing a crucial role but with little fanfare.

His leadership appears natural, his passion is channelled in ways that help the team, and his success as a player can be measured by what those around him are doing, not only by his own goal tally.

He seems to have hit a sweet spot after years as a brilliant but volatile talent, and Richmond has benefitted immensely this year. How times have changed.

When Riewoldt arrived at Richmond at the end of 2006 as an energetic and spirited teenager from Tasmania, he earned the nickname 'Mozzie'.

AFL 2017 Second Qualifying Final - Geelong v Richmond

Shane Edwards admits he has been dreaming of Grand Final success

WITH Richmond one win away from its first Grand Final appearance in more than 30 years, forward Shane Edwards concedes he's already dreaming of what it would be like to lift the premiership cup.

Usually the line trotted out by the modern-day player is 'one game at a time', but with the Tigers set to face Greater Western Sydney in a preliminary final at a near-capacity MCG on Saturday evening, Edwards' honesty was refreshing.

While he says the players appear "switched on" for the club's first prelim since 2001, Edwards admits his mind at times has strayed to that last Saturday in September.

"It's pretty hard (not to think about the Grand Final), you can't control what you dream about," Edwards said on Thurday.

Limited ticket release for preliminary finals

AFL hoax, Cats fly, Rory trains The Footy Feed team with all the latest news

SELLOUT crowds will attend both preliminary finals this weekend, with the AFL confirming no more tickets are available to either match.

The AFL has estimated a crowd of 97,000 will walk through the MCG gates on Saturday for the Tigers' first preliminary final since 2001.

Should the crowd reach that mark it would be one of the highest-attended games (excluding the Grand Final) on record since 1973.

A crowd of 98,002 was on hand to see Geelong defeat Collingwood by five points in the 2007 preliminary final, which is the highest crowd for a non-Grand Final since the 1970s.

Based on ticket sales, the Crows-Cats game is trending towards a crowd of more than 53,000, which would be close to breaking the all-time Adelaide Oval attendance record for an AFL game.

In round three this season, 53,698 showed up for the...

Flag coach heads footy Woman of the Year list

AFLW 2017 Grand Final - Brisbane v Adelaide

Bec Goddard celebrates the Crows' Grand Final win with players

ADELAIDE premiership coach Bec Goddard headlines a list of nominees for the Fujitsu General Football Woman of the Year award.

Goddard took the football world by storm with her work to unite a Crows team split across two training camps (Adelaide and Darwin), culminating in a six-point win over the Brisbane Lions in the inaugural NAB AFL Women’s Grand Final in March.

The award is one of two to be presented at an Essendon-run function on September 28.

Fellow nominee Laura Kane juggles two senior football roles – she is North Melbourne's football operations manager and president of VFL Women's club Melbourne University.

Jess Smith, who has managed the VFLW operations for AFL Victoria, and Allana Dickie, the female football coordinator for the Western Australia Football Commission, have also been nominated.

Knee injury ends Eagles ruckman's career

AFL hoax, Cats fly, Rory trains The Footy Feed team with all the latest news

A DEGENERATIVE knee issue has forced West Coast ruckman Jonathan Giles to retire.

The 29-year-old journeyman, who had a contract for next season, leaves the AFL after 63 games at four clubs over six seasons.

Giles crossed to the Eagles at the end of 2015 after plying his trade at Port Adelaide, Greater Western Sydney and Essendon.

He managed nine appearances for West Coast, and will be remembered for his stunning effort against Sam Jacobs in round 23 last season when he was called up to face Adelaide the week after Nic Naitanui tore his anterior cruciate ligament.

But he managed only five senior games in 2017, despite Naitanui and Scott Lycett appearing just once between them for the season.

"The knee was no good; the osteoarthritis from several years of bone-on-bone has got the better of it," Giles...

AFL 2017 First Qualifying Final - Adelaide v GWS Giants

Mitch McGovern has been ruled out of the preliminary final

ADELAIDE forward Mitch McGovern has been ruled out of Friday night's preliminary final against Geelong at Adelaide Oval. 

The Crows are hopeful McGovern will recover in time from a hamstring injury to be available for the Grand Final next weekend if they are there.

"He won't play tomorrow night," Crows coach Don Pyke said on Thursday.

"Unfortunately, he's got a slight injury with his hamstring, so he won't be available tomorrow night.

"We're hopeful he could be right for the following week." 

McGovern's left hamstring pulled up sore during the club's match simulation at training last Saturday.

It's the other hamstring that he injured in round three this year that forced him to miss three months.

"He's made some good progress since Saturday," Pyke...

Geelong keeps Danger zone under wraps

Giant decision, Danger plan, yes AFL Wednesday Footy Feed with Nat Edwards

THE INTRIGUE as to where Geelong superstar Patrick Dangerfield starts the preliminary final against Adelaide will continue until the first bounce after the Cats decided to keep their cards close to their chest on Wednesday.

Coach Chris Scott admitted that Dangerfield had declared a preference about whether he began forward or in the midfield, but the coach was not about to share that information.

"I don't think we'll surprise Adelaide irrespective of where he will start," Scott said.

One thing that can be guaranteed is that Dangerfield will spend some time forward after his four-goal opening half in the semi-final as well as his bursts in the midfield.  

"I know where he would like to start, but it's not black and white for him. He has got a preference, [but] if he played him in the other spot I think he...

AFL emphatically says 'YES' to marriage equality

Giant decision, Danger plan, yes AFL Wednesday Footy Feed with Nat Edwards

THE AFL has made an emphatic statement in support of same-sex marriage, temporarily changing its logo at the front of AFL House to 'Yes'.

Hawthorn coach Alastair Clarkson and footballers Ben Brown, Max Gawn, Dyson Heppell, Darcy Vescio and Meg Hutchins were at AFL House on Wednesday morning to support the move.

North Melbourne, St Kilda, Western Bulldogs and Collingwood are among the AFL clubs to have publicly backed marriage equality.

The 'Yes' sign will revert to the AFL logo on Thursday, but chief executive Gillon McLachlan said it was important for his organisation to have a strong stance on the issue.

"We are committed to equality and diversity and we support the rights of all Australians to live, work and play free from discrimination," he said in a statement.

'We're just not linkers': Cats avoid anthem hype

AFL 2016 Second Qualifying Final - Geelong v Hawthorn

Chris Scott and the Cats won't be linking arms for the national anthem

GEELONG coach Chris Scott hasn't given a moment's thought to the way Adelaide lined up for the national anthem ahead of the Crows' qualifying final over GWS.

The whole discussion about the Crows' adoption of a power stance during the national anthem, that commentators interpreted as a pre-game attempt to intimidate Greater Western Sydney, escaped Scott. 

But for the sake of the conversation, he was prepared to give the Cats' view in the build-up to the massive clash at Adelaide Oval.

Cats keep Danger zone under wraps until Friday

"We're not linkers in the ceremony for the national anthem. We just stand side by side. It's not being disrespectful to the sides who do link. We're just not linkers," Scott joked on Wednesday.

The coach agreed Adelaide's tactic was one he would need to get up to speed with. 

"We'll have...

Bolter Bolton? Speedster 'a level above' in VFL

VFL 2017 Preliminary Final - Box Hill Hawks v Richmond

Richmond's VFL coach says Shai Bolton could slot well into the AFL preliminary final side

EXCITING Richmond forward Shai Bolton has played "above the level" for the past month and could easily slot into the senior side if called upon for Saturday's preliminary final against Greater Western Sydney, VFL coach Craig McRae says.

Bolton was taken with the No.29 selection in last year's NAB AFL Draft and has lined up in six matches since making his debut in round nine.

He played five consecutive games before being dropped, and most recently played in the round 19 win against Gold Coast.
