Last year’s minor premiers have earned the right to host the first week of finals yet again with the Panthers hitting top spot a couple of weeks ago and holding on with big wins over their two nearest rivals. They will face a Glenelg side that help pole position for the majority of the year but has suffered injuries of late, though should be a stronger outfit than when they faced off in Round 15.

Reigning premier Central District was forced to settle for the knockout semi-final after losing to South Adelaide in the final round. The Bulldogs will now need to beat Norwood to progress through to the preliminary final. They lost to the Redlegs a few weeks back, but since then Norwood stumbled in a couple of games but won on the weekend over West Adelaide to lock in fourth. and will be confident against the third placed Dogs.

In a blockbuster clash, West Perth will look to turnaround recent form and the last result against the Swans from a fortnight ago to keep alive in the finals series. The Falcons host this round’s action – and will have home ground advantage if they make the grand final – but will need to step up after losses to both the Swans and Subiaco in recent weeks. They have beaten the Black Ducks and Claremont this season though, while Swan Districts enters finals after a big win over Peel Thunder.

Two sides that have played each other more than a few times the last three seasons do battle for a spot in the grand final. Having faced off in the last two deciders and split those results, the red-hot Sharks will be out for more success having qualified as minor premiers. East Fremantle has not lost since Round 3, but that was against Claremont. The Tigers looked a little vulnerable in the second half of the season, dropping three games, but steadied in the final fortnight and flexed their muscles against East Perth in the final round.
