The Western Bulldogs are the defending Premiers, but a number of teams are playing footy at a high level so it’s anyone’s guess who will be the last side standing, and you can enjoy the action using a standard or HD TV, as well as live streaming options with a Free trial.
AFL – Grand Final
They’ve been the two best throughout the year and the AFL gets a dream Grand Final with the Adelaide Crows taking on the Richmond Tigers. These two sides prior to this Saturday have had the longest droughts in terms of reaching the big dance, with the Crows last playing 1998. As for Richmond, the Tiger Army hasn’t played at the G on the final Saturday in September since 1982, with their last premiership being in 1980. This week will all be about Richmond, but don’t forget Adelaide. This Grand Final berth was created by Phil Walsh in 2015 when he built that culture and instilled confidence in this side. Now they are 120 minutes away from finishing off Phil’s dream, but don’t look for every event in this round of the AFL on Free to Air to be shown live online.
