    As if it weren’t bad enough to be in Lockdown Version...6.2? I don't know, I’ve lost track...we have just got the news that for the second year in a row, the AFL Grand Final will not be held on the hallowed turf of the Melbourne Cricket Ground, but will instead, unlike those poor sparrows, fly across the Nullarbor and be played out before the so-far COVID free eyes of Westralians.

  • AFL Finals: All aboard for the Dee-train
