Geelong Cats take on Richmond Tigers in the 2020 AFL Grand Final at the Gabba in Brisbane on Saturday. Who will be crowned 2020 premiers?

This final will be like no other before, being played away from the MCG in Melbourne and with two Victorian sides contesting the big dance.

Geelong beat Brisbane Lions to reach the Grand Final, while Richmond defeated Port Adelaide in a thriller and will bid to retain their premiership flag.

Richmond Tigers Form


The Tigers are the form team heading into this match, not just based off their past five or six performances, but because of the dominant force they have proven to be over the last three years.

They have won two of the last three flags and will be looking to make that three on Saturday.

Richmond were beaten 69-54 in their first final due to a lack of discipline against the Brisbane Lions, but straightened themselves up against St Kilda with a five goal win as they won 80-49.

The Tigers were borderline giving away some silly free kicks last week against Port Adelaide, but they prevailed 46-40 to make it through to the big one and will be on their best behaviour for this match.

Geelong Cats Form


Geelong Cats are a team with a sense of timing about them and are now a win away from the 2020 premiership.

They were beyond poor against Port Adelaide in their first final as they lost 58-42. But they put together arguably the strongest four quarters of footy that we have seen this season against the Pies in a 100-32 semi-final.

They toyed with Brisbane in the second-half last week with Gary Ablett proving he still has plenty of tricks up his sleeve as Geelong won 82-42 at the Gabba.

Patrick Dangerfield has said all throughout the year that this is his premiership season and, with Ablett retiring at the end of the match, could this be the send off he deserves after such an impeccable career?
