Imperials aiming for unbeaten season
Imperials Colts will be looking to enter the history books when they take on Tigers in the 2019 Grand Final, as they could complete a season unbeaten.
There is no denying the Magpies player depth in regards to physical size and football skills and are short priced favourites to take out the flag.
In the last encounter between these sides the Magpies defence dominated the contest with Bailey Scott, Waylen Toigo and Timothy Mayers all solid contributors in that they spearheaded attack with effectiveness.
Magpies midfield, with Heath Bernardin, Zac Hall and Tate East, all very capable players who use the ball well, adds to the Magpies line-up.
The Tigers were gallant in defeat against the Magpies, showing they have abundant fighting qualities to keep their more fancied opponents on notice.
Experienced players in Jakeb Burford, Taj Russo, Liam and Joshua Edwards provided the leadership within their side and with Oliver Hutchenson in superb form, the Tigers may surprise the Magpies.
Tigers defence Charlie Waideman and Nathan Perry have formed a dynamic connection all year to be the backbone of the Magpie scoreboard count.
If the Tigers midfield can limit the supply to these Magpie forwards they will be in the game, however if they drop the intensity they will pay a high price.
Tigers pair Harrison Brown and Noah Sputore were superb in the semi-final clash and will have to sustain a high level of effort to give Tigers hope.
Liam and Joshua Edwards are capable players but have to be in the game for four quarters and take goal front opportunities when they present.
