Bouncing off the finals season will be Geelong as they welcome St Kilda to the MCG in what is set to be a passionate affair. The Grand Final rematch will be a great one for all spectators lucky enough to get to the ground, but if you can’t don’t worry. Ladbrokes.com.au is the next best thing – so prove your loyalty online!

On Saturday afternoon Fremantle will see Hawthorn travel to the Subiaco Oval after the Dockers earned a home final last weekend. The pair met just two weeks ago with Hawthorn running away with a 116-point win, although Fremantle played a half-strength side. So who will run away with the win this time around?

Saturday evening will see a mouth watering line up as the Minor Premiers Collingwood welcome the Western Bulldogs to the MCG for a thriller. Collingwood suffered a shock loss to Hawthorn last weekend which suddenly made the seemingly unstoppable Pies outfit look beatable. So will the Bulldogs pounce on the opportunity?

Rounding off the first week of finals footy in style, Sydney will welcome Carlton to the ANZ Stadium. The Swans have ended their regular season with some great results over top sides, in contrast to the Blues’ recent record. But with the stakes up a notch, and Sydney not playing at their preferred ground, could an upset occur?
