Geelong, aided by a more than handy draw, finished second on the ladder with 15 wins to gain a home final, although it was played at the MCG against Richmond rather than at Kardinia Park in Geelong. The Cats eventually bowed out to the Adelaide Crows in a Preliminary Fianl where they were belted to the tune of 61 points.
