YOU could mount a really good case for Osborne or Jindera in Saturday’s grand final.
But all I can go on is what I’ve seen this season in our Henty matches and Matt Rava’s side has been the stand-out.
They had our measure earlier in the season and got us again when Jamie Parr kicked a goal on the siren late in the home and away series.
I don’t think either side is stacked with superstars but they are both really solid across the board with a lot of depth.
Parr plays like and extra on-baller and Jindera ruckman Mitch Lawrence is going to have to watch him closely.
Marty Bahr and Connor Galvin are important as well and, after Tom Weldon shut down Jye Shields last week, it wouldn’t be a total surprise if he went to either of them at the first bounce.
Jindera’s wildcard is Sam Myors.
I noticed Kerry Bahr said earlier in the week that he was a certainly to return from injury and that’s a huge plus for the Bulldogs because he’s a running machine.
He might have to spend a bit of extra time rotating off the bench because he’s been out for a while, but I still think he can make an impact.
While I’m tipping Osborne, the Cats will want to be up by a couple goals at three-quarter-time.
Jindera were all over Osborne late in the match a couple of weeks ago and its run from defence proved too much for Culcairn in the preliminary final.
It’s virtually a 50-50 call, but the week off might be just enough.
The verdict: Osborne by 13 points.
