Don’t be dis­cour­aged if you’re not a welded-on Aussie Rules fan be­cause this game is about much more than the code. It’s the tra­di­tional Dream­time match at the MCG, de­signed to ac­knowl­edge the im­pact Abo­rig­i­nal cul­ture has had on the sport. As far as the ac­tual con­test is con­cerned, it’s hard to tip a win­ner be­cause both teams have been full of prom­ise in some games while look­ing any­thing but fi­nals threats in oth­ers. Brian Tay­lor, the man with the largest scone in sports com­men­tat­ing (a fact proven when col­leagues ran a tape mea­sure around his head a cou­ple of years ago), leads the call.
