AFL Semi Finals My Review
It was an intriguing Semi Finals weekend of the AFL Finals Series. Are the Demons a possible darkhorse for this years Premiership; can they do what the Bulldogs did in 2016 and win the Premiership from outside the top four. The Demons won fairly comfortable in the end for a second week in a row. The Magpies and Giants were involved in a tight, tough contest. The Magpies prevailed in the end. The game is in good stead as is if the AFL Semi Finals is anything to go by.
