Get ready for the AFL Preliminary Finals

You can’t fail to have noticed that the 2018 AFL Preliminary Finals are here and everything is pointing to the fact that both games promise to be the most compelling for years.

The exciting build-up to Friday nights preliminary final has been relentless. Richmond and Collingwood are readying themselves for what is, quite simply the blockbuster game of the weekend at MCG.

The two giants haven't met in the post-season since the Tigers beat the Pies in the 1980 Grand Final and the reigning premiers haven't been the easiest of opponents to see off this season either. Collingwood will need cool heads to have any hope of winning a first flag in eight years. Brace yourself, it's going to be good!

Melbourne come into the second preliminary final on Saturday in excellent form, including a round 22 17 point win over the Josh Kennedyless Eagles.

With Josh Kennedy fit and back on board at the weekend West Coast should be well equipped to tackle a tough-looking Melbourne side, which is great news if you're an Eagles fan. Neither side will be in the mood for a survival scrap to return to the Grand Final stage. Bring it on!
