DIANNE BUTLER OUT OF THE BOX
On a scale of one to very, how ripped off are we going to feel if this game isn’t the tensest of the season? Or at least as tense (Hawthorn v Sydney, Brisbane v West Coast, Gold Coast v Richmond). It’s a lot to expect, but not unreasonable con- sidering it’s Hawthorn and Sydney. This is where these players have set the bar. But obviously nobody is going to have a bigger day than Bruce and Dennis. McAvaney and Cometti. Together again after all this time. How long has it been — five days? I don’t know why Matthew Richardson isn’t in charge yet, but there we are.
