ONE LAST SHOT

I WANT TO LEAVE GAME WITH THAT CUP, SAYS ABLETT

Geelong Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

DES­TINY awaits Gee­long’s favourite son Gary Ablett, who will play his fi­nal AFL match in Satur­day’s grand fi­nal.

Ablett did a rare press con­fer­ence yes­ter­day, the day af­ter his two third-quar­ter goals helped Gee­long break clear of Brisbane in the pre­lim­i­nary fi­nal.

He said the pos­si­bil­ity of drink­ing from the pre­mier­ship cup one more time was the sole rea­son he re­turned to Gee­long three years ago.

Mean­while, po­lice are pre­par­ing for an un­usual grand fi­nal night in the city, and Gee­long chief ex­ec­u­tive Brian Cook says his club is stronger than ever in 2020, its cul­ture forged by the hard­ships of the coro­n­avirus pan­demic.
