Good news and bad news

Good: Saints needed to beat Essendon by 94 points to claim 4th spot on the ladder. They walloped the Bombers 147 points to 39. So they finished 4th at the end of the home and away season. It's important to be in the top 4 for the finals as these teams now have a double chance. The top 8 play finals but it's a complicated system. Teams 5 to 8 play off (5 V 8, 6 V 7) and the two losing teams are out of it - eliminated. The top 4 play (1 V 4, 2 V 3)but the losers get a second chance the following week - play the winners of the 5 V 8, 6 V 7 games. I think.
Anyway, the Saints will play Geelong next week. Geelong are clear favourites to win the premiership again this year and have hardly been beaten all season. Just as well we get the second chance! Still, it's finals and you never know what could happen....
Go Saints!!!!
Bad: Phone is lost.
