I mean I think the biggest thing for us and we talked about that straight after the game, we did review that game really, really closely, and not just as coaches, as players we went through it pretty clearly but that was one overriding thing we thought came out and that was our energy to compete. Q2: 7 mins remaining: Geelong 7-6 (48) vs Collingwood 1-0 (6) Dangerfield is (not literally) on fire. A: He banged his knee in our practice game that we played last weekend. Under WA's phase four restrictions, 30,000 fans can attend the games at Perth Stadium — half the venue's capacity. It has its moments but parenting has that anyway. We just tried to put one foot in front of the other. I thought you were the most consistent Port player all night. Yes, she has been amazing. Teams have to defend different options with us at times. Tonight they weren't. You need the week off, you just said! He had an experience tonight that money can't buy. We believe in us. They have been behind us all year, particularly our staff. Was given a different role this year. I think he is a guy who is just going to keep growing. They are hard to play against. How big a performance was that? They have been behind us all year, particularly our staff. They have been along for the journey the whole time. We had strong believe as a club at the start of the year right through. He will be all that much better for it. The Ebert goal on half time was big for them. It helps if you play finals one year and miss the next three. Quite simply a breathtaking half of footy from Geelong. Q: We don't see this every day. The WA Government said the decision to allow fans to attend the football was based on advice from the state's Chief Health Officer that it was safe. No. There is no doubt it has been a quirk of the season that West Coast and Port and Brisbane have had a different set-up to a lot of Melbourne clubs. You've seen tough times at this place. I think you've looked after me, giving me that one! Ryan Lester played on Dangerfield. Geelong led Richmond by 21 points in last year’s preliminary final without Tom Hawkins or Mitch Duncan, and the Cats have premiership Tiger Shaun Grigg in … Unfortunately tonight he got hurt with the landing, the force of the landing but he's pretty good, talking to him in the rooms. It is rare. Dangerfield = man possessed. Geelong champion Gary Ablett spoke to Channel Seven after the game... Q: You said before the game you would move to Geelong to play in a grand final.A: How good is that. We generally need everyone doing that. We often do it when we are at a slightly different venue or it takes on a more important answer. But they have developed a system and a group of players that know what to do in every minute of the game and it won't always work but at least they are on the same page. Can't remember another game that Richmond played here. Q: What was wrong with him Chris? Q: What was your message at half-time. We generally need everyone doing that. Deserved a goal. He was able to run at about 85 per cent speed but he couldn't get that extra 15 per cent that you need. And all credit to them. Been on the wing at times. A: Yes, I'm not sure of how Lightning premiership under 12 works. Absurdly easy, is this. And hopefully it is a bit of a two-way discussion with the players around. You had a fantastic season. So it is a process you have to go through unfortunately. It was a contest all night. We just want people that can do their job whenever it's their turn and that was Hammer's moments tonight where he stood up in the third quarter. These are junk-time goals but in a way Collingwood will take them. Another TAB customer is celebrating Geelong’s victory after they wagered $4000 at $3.25 on August 19 that the Cats would play in this season’s premiership decider. Did they play Sydney in a wet one? I think the last time we played 'em, we weren't able to do it in round 12, they just transitioned from their back half to their front half too quick and we couldn't catch up. So we couldn't pick him on that basis. I think they’re just looking after him. So I think their bodies were just stronger to break through in the clinches and clear the ball from the congestion. And it was classic Hawkins. Q: Has it ever come up in preparing for this finals series?A: Not really. I haven't had that many set shots throughout my career. So when they are under pressure and they needed to take the game on a little bit more you don't want the ball in his hands. So we are starting to become a really reliable team. This is our fifth game here this year, next week will be our sixth. The Cats were $12 at the start of this season to win this year’s flag and $15 was still on offer before Round 10 and one TAB punter is hoping their patience pays off after they placed a $5000 wager at $15 on June 11 for a potential $75,000 collect. I just found it really refreshing. Follow our social accounts to get exclusive content and all the latest sporting news! I thought our backs were strong too. We will firmly be focused on that. I think we look dangerous sometimes and we look dangerous in different ways. Wrong for a little time. Last rites now for Collingwood. Gone forward. That's Steve. I thought Ryan Lester played a really good game tonight. A 28-year-old man who ran onto the field during Collingwood's win over Geelong at Perth Stadium last night is facing a far heftier penalty than would normally apply for a streaking offence. They certainly favoured Metricon and played their semi-final there. AFL finals as it happened: Port Adelaide vs Geelong Cats at Adelaide Oval. Sort of one of those accidental things. I thought that was a brilliant performance by Geelong. Another six-pointer for the Cats, this time for Menegola. Probably missed a few but we have some young exciting guys at the club. 104 days you have been living amongst your teammates. A 28-year-old man who ran onto the field during last night's AFL match at Perth Stadium faces a $50,000 fine for breaching a quarantine zone. Q: You seem to have a clear head. It has been a challenge but I have enjoyed it. He's pretty good with those snap shots. There were some little moments that maybe we could have made them a little bit more nervous than we did but overall they deserved their victory. Stoppages are all theirs. We love our footy. But still, the best way to do that is to try to find a way to play your best football. This is a slightly bigger stage. It has probably been harder on [partner] Em who has done an unbelievable job. Played a good brand. I hate to individualise but Jack Henry tonight, some of his intercepting was spectacular. So we couldn't pick him on that basis. You have more scoring options or more ways to score through different players? That is something you fix over the summer in the gym and in your technique around contested ball. That's a really experienced football side. I’m serious. I haven't done the analysis. We are so grateful. We certainly don't need to let the frustration of some of those missed opportunities get to us. Geelong’s solitary goal is the second-lowest half-time score of 2020 and (according to Fox Footy) the lowest half-time score in a VFL/AFL final for 60-odd years. Q: Darcy Gardiner a late out. They know. Just final reminders, what do we prioritise, what is important. What did Kenny say to the group at half-time? Real resolve about what is ahead of us. You are faced with disappointments sometimes. He was able to run at about 85 per cent speed but he couldn't get that extra 15 per cent that you need. Great ball user, terrific player but that would help us. Round 17 taught us they will be hard to beat, they are going to be hard to beat, they are going to be hard to score against. Q: Also Brandan Parfitt tonight really good.A: Yes, he is improving week on week. Obviously it can kind of become a bit mundane to do the same thing week in and out every week. It's interesting. We have so much confidence in each other at the moment. It actually seems like there is only one team out there. We know we're good enough. But they seemed to find another way to get another goal and answer us. I don't even know if I touched it in the first quarter. But when I looked up Guthrie had the ball, set shot right on 50. Q4: 7 mins remaining: Geelong 13-9 (87) vs Collingwood 4-1 (25) Goal! Centre clearance for Grundy. Q3: 11 mins remaining: Geelong 9-7 (61) vs Collingwood 1-0 (6) Pendlebury started off (as he did in the second quarter) but now runs onto the ground. He didn’t have front running but he made it his own as the Pies defenders sat back and watched. Not for the whole game though. That is something you fix over the summer in the gym and in your technique around contested ball. It has been the focus of my career, not for the whole career, but the older you get the more intense you kind of want these moments so it is exciting. A few times! Our defence was really strong all night. A: It is pretty difficult. The answer to that is pretty hard - Dangerfield goes orbital and tries to bring down a huge hanger.
