2009 AFL Grand Final – Last 5 minutes

One of the toughest fought grand finals of the past decade saw St Kilda lead at every break before the Cats steam rolled over the top of them late.

It’s hard to forget the toe poke in the middle of the ground from Scarlett to Ablett that eventually set up the Chapman goal which broke the dead lock and won the game for the Cats.

There is of course no better listening for such a final 5 minutes as the biased calling of the Geelong local radio station K-ROCK.



Covering all things Australian Rules Football for The Profits. I’ve been a passionate supporter and follower of AFL for as long as I can remember. Having been born into a family with deep football history and tradition on both sides, you can say it runs through my blood. I’ve got a keen interest in the stats and analysis of the game, which helped me finish in the top 100 of fantasy competitions DreamTeam and Supercoach last year. While my own local football career was cut short due to injury at 22, it has created an opportunity for me to frequently watch and build a deep knowledge of the sport at its highest level. I look forward to sharing my thoughts and views throughout the season.
