2022 AFL Grand Final First Goalscorer Tips


Best Bet - Isaac Heeney

A lot of this bet is going to depend on where Heeney start the game, but I am thinking he starts deep in the forward line to try and give Buddy Franklin some early assistance.

He has the athleticism, ability and confidence to light this game up early and if the ball is heading in his direction, his grab is one of the most underrated in the league.

A big time player, Heeney can certainly kick a big-time goal to get his Swans up and about early in this match.

Value Bet - Tyson Stengle

Jeremy Cameron and Tom Hawkins, the two big forwards for Geelong, will certainly have found their match on the McCartin boys playing tight on them early. 

It could be a ground ball won if it is the Cats to kick the first goal and arguably the best small forward of the season, Tyson Stengle has what it takes to light up the MCG.

Playing with a stack of confidence, this man is one of the hardest match ups on the ground and is value for the Cats' opener.

Value Bet - Luke Parker

Luke Parker is a midfielder who can find himself parked on a flank when there is an opposition turn over, and it could be the Swans captain who steps up to the plate to kick the first goal of the day. 

He has kicked 14 goals for the season which is just over half a goal a game. Although not a frequent goal kicker, he is a value long shot for the opening goal at the MCG.
