The AFL Semi-finals are usually a pretty good lesson in why a top 4 finish is so important. Sure, those Doggies broke the mould on Friday when they upset the Hawks, but in fairness, that game was always going to be played at the MCG, regardless of who finished where. As for this game, where Adelaide had to travel to Sydney despite winning last week (and the Swans losing last week), the final position in the 8 proved to be pretty important. Boy oh boy wowee, they’ll be thinking about that West Coast loss in round 23 all through the off-season

In a game that will long be remembered, football’s greatest rivals of the last decade went head-to-head in the weekend’s first qualifying final. The result was determined by the final kick of the night with Hawthorn’s Isaac Smith missing his set shot after the siren, handing Geelong a two-point victory and a preliminary final spot.
The Premiership race has been thrown wide open, with a stunning finals debut from GWS in the first ever ‘Battle of the Bridge’ final. Despite going into the game as firm favourites for both this game and the flag, Sydney just didn’t have the answers to the Giants relentless pressure and precise foot skills.

Netflix vs. Stan vs. Presto. We run our eye over Australia’s ‘Big 3’ streaming services
The exciting and genre-changing new world of streaming television has officially been available in Australia since early 2015, which when you think about it, isn’t that long at all. Yet in the world of digital media and mobile apps, 18 months can be an entire product lifecycle. 18 months, can see a modern tech company rise, fall, be superseded, be acquired by somebody else and get a new branding makeover. So how have the domestic streaming products held up in their short (but long) life thus far? Are we getting anything close to the service that international viewers get? Have our domestic products come close to competing with the superpower of Netflix?
