Reckon this one's pretty significant... But the Dees have made a habit of overcoming history.

Yeah it's a bit rough, Curls, but maybe it can work in their favour.

Winner of Pies v Giants will be just the 3rd team in 19yrs to enter a preliminary final on a 6-day break. And they'll do it against Richmond

Agree on all fronts mate. Even with the Rising Star, not sure it's fair that 1st-yr players should be competing with 3rd-yrs.

Don't be like that, Doyen – Brody Mihocek might win it next year.

CFC says he is but IMO he won’t be back. Couldn’t pick him with any confidence, particularly in a final after not playing since R10, and with Moore a risk too. Only in an emergency - ie. more injuries, or if they need to roll the dice.

Clearly not – probably the Pies' best player over the past month... Who should be 'under the pump' this week & why?
