AFL: GRAND FINALISTS CREATE UNWANTED HISTORY

FOR the first time in AFL history the teams which played in the Grand Final, Collingwood and Brisbane, have lost their first two matches.

As a result, Collingwood is now $9 to win the AFL premiership with PlayUp, which is their longest odds for sometime.

Brisbane is tighter in the markets as they are $6 second favourite to win the AFL flag.

The GWS Giants are now a clear $5 favourite to win the AFL flag. They have been the standout team after the Opening Round and Round 1.

Sydney have also been exceptional in their two wins. They outclassed Collingwood at the MCG on Friday night.



The Northern states look well placed at this stage of the season as the Gold Coast Suns are also two wins from two games.

Can the Magpies get going? Naturally as it’s still March but without Dan McStay up forward and Nathan Murphy down back they are being exposed.

Brisbane didn’t have Lachie Neale when they lost to Fremantle so that’s a big loss.

Collingwood and St. Kilda kick off the second round on Thursday night at the MCG with both clubs keen to get a win on the board.
